Charles, Thank you for your reponse. Yes, I knew we were speaking of at least two different Johann Michael Lutzs. I am quite confused now and my Johann may not have been born in Switzerland as I previously thought.I do know he did not come to America in 1752. He had a son George Ulrich born 1739; his daughter Catherine was born 1775 and married Stephen Allerton. Does any of this correspond to the information you have?
