I am looking for information on William Lutze (1871-?) and his parents (names, dates of birth and death are unknown). He was born in Mississippi.

According to the 1910 US Census he resided at that time in Lincoln county Mississippi. He was married to Sarah (unknown maiden name)) with childre Emma (1891), Mary J (1894), Chancy (1896), Minnie (1898), Mandey (1900), Ruby (1902-1948), Johnny s (1904), Edna (1906) and May (1908). Ruby was my mother. Most of these dates are approximate. His father is listed as born in Germany.

Accoring to the 1920 US Census he resided at that time in Ruth, Lincoln Mississippi. He was married to Dollie O (1883) and had additional children Ina M (1908), Jewel (1914), Verna (1916), and J T and Buford whose birth dates are approximately 1918. Again the dates are approximate. In this census his father is listed as being born in Mississippi.

With few exceptions the date of death of any of the above are not known, there could be variations on spelling, e.g., Lutz and there is no information on the descendants. Apart from my mother, two other exceptions are (1) Mary J who was listed in a tree by Marianne Smith (2004-11-1) and also John Hall (2004-12-10) indicating she was married to John William MeGuffee (b1880) but no information is provided about living descendants and (2) Chancy listed in a tree by William Blalock (8/25/01) indicating he was married to Nancy Lou Lilly (b1897) with no information about living descendants.

Any inforamtion or suggestons for directions to go in will be very mcuh appreciated.
