Hi Lisa - Ran across your post via a Cordes search: Here's a reply I posted to a Benton Co GenWeb query:
Posted by HRF <firstname.lastname@example.org> on Wed, 29 Nov 2000, in response to Lutjen-Ehlers, posted by Betty Metscher Senter on Wed, 29 Nov 2000
Surname: Lutjen, Stelljes, Ehlers, Cordes
Julia was youngest daughter of Cord and Anna Margaret (Cordes) Ehlers, who were married in Benton Co 30 November 1853. Their biography is in the 1976 Cole Camp Area History. Her birth is recorded in records of Monsees (Immanuel) Lutheran, several miles north of Mt Hulda: Julie Katharina, born 5 January 1868, bapt. 7 Feb.
Claus Lutjen is probably Claus Georg Lütjen, son of Diedrich and Adelheid (Stelljes) Lütjen.
I don't have Mt Hulda marriages after 1888, which might confirm above, but he is the only Claus Lutjen in a list of Mt Hulda burials. Julia is not listed with him. The cemetery list gives dates for Claus as 22 May 1867 - 19 May 1958, but either the birthyear was misread or wrong on the stone, as the church records show he was born 22 May 1869, and baptized 10 June.
There were several Diedrich (Dick) Lütjen's; do you have approx age of one you seek? (Would prefer email response)
