Hi, I am looking for information on Joseph Lux and his family. He may have had a brother named Gerhard Otto Lux or it was his son.
In the "Nebraska State Gazetter Farmers Directory" for 1890 it lists
LUX, Gerhard , Rising City LUX, Joseph, Rising City
In the 1900 census it lists Joseph Lux and his family Reading Township, Butler County, Nebraska
Lux, Joseph wife Sophia son Carl son G. Otto (I think is Gerhard Otto) daug Emma daug Anna daug Efreida daug Carrie S. (I think it's Carrie Sophia)
In the 1906 Reading Township Directory of Leading Farmers of Butler County it lists
LUX, joseph , Rising City (RFD#) 2 (Section) 6 LUX, Gerhard , Surprise (RFD#) 0 (Section) 19
In the 1918 Reading Precinct Atlas of Butler and Polk Counties It lists LUX, Jos. wf Sophie ch Charles, Anton, Otto, Emma, Anna, Freda, Sophie P.O. Rising City R.2.O. 160.65 ac, sec 6 (35)
From what I know Joseph Lux came over to America in 1883 with his cousin Carl M. Lux and another Lux family member, from Germany. Joseph and his wife Anna were married in Germany in 1874 and had at least 2 of their children in Germany before coming to America. Supposedly his son Anton was also a politician in Nebraska in the early 1900's? I am not 100% sure on the details. Any help on this family is greatly appreciated.
