Our line in Kansas was Wm.N.Lux b. about 1830 in Ind. He md.Susan Vest in Clark Co.,Indiana in 1848. He was a cooper. Their son Wm. Andrew is found in KS.and died later in CA. I believe Wm. N.'s father was Ephriam D. Lux Sr. Our Lux Family is German also, but they left Germany and went to England for a couple of generations, then came to America in the 1700's. Guess this isn't much help, but at least you can use the process of elimination.
