Here is a brief beginning to our family history.  

My family's line of descent is marked with a **.

The family name was Lutz in Germany.  Around 1900, most of the descendants of this line in the United States began using Lotz as a last name.

John Peter LUTZ was born on 10 December 1810 in Narsaw, Germany.   He was married to Mary Cristena STOUBER on 29 November 1842 in Germany.  Mary Cristena STOUBER was born on 2 February 1822 in Nordthover, Ampt Weiseiders, Nassau, Germany.  They emigrated on 11 June 1844 with one son on the ship "William and James" from Rotterdam arriving in New York on 12 Sep 1844.  They settled in Richland County, Ohio, where they stayed for about twenty years before moving to the farm in Logan Township, Auglaize County, Ohio, where they lived out their lives.

The family appeared on the US census in:
