Volga German
Heinrich Lutz is a Volga German.
Heinrich Lutz has German Roots.

Family #5 in the first Appendix of the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #118 in the 1834 Grimm census.

1798 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 5 in the Appendix
Head of the Household David Mutz [sic], age 47
Wife Katharina Elisabeth Aab Lutz, age 29
Child #1 Johann Heinrich Philipp Lutz, age 20, from 1st wife
Child #2 Johann Georg Lutz, age 18, from 1st wife
Child #3 Anna Margaretha Lutz, age 12, from 1st wife
Child #4 Johann Christian Lutz, age 3 months, from 2nd wife
Child #5 Elisabeth Sabina Lutz, age 5, from 2nd wife

Johann Heinrich married Friedrika Margaretha before 1804 and the couple went on to have seven children:

  1. David Lotz, born 1805
  2. Johann Michael Lotz, born 1810
  3. Johann Peter Lotz, born 1812
  4. Johann Heinrich Lotz, born 1814
  5. Anna Margaretha Lotz, born 1817
  6. Louisa Lotz, born 1818
  7. Elisabeth Lotz, born 1820

You'll note that the surname became Lotz in the 1834 census. It appears that was an error, since the name was spelled Lutz in the original immigration records, but the new spelling appeared to "stick." The name was spelled Lotz away in the 1857 census. See Johannes Lutz for a discussion about his family who came to Russia via Denmark. [2]

Johann Heinrich is not mentioned in the 1857 census, so he must have passed away at some point prior to that year. [4] Typically when a male dies, his death year is listed in the next census, and then his name is permanently removed from future census records. It appears that he probably passed away prior to 1850, and his death was noted in the 1850 male-only census. He most likely passed away between 1835 and 1849, between the ages of 57 and 71.

The surname Lutz, the correct German spelling in the immigration records, was misspelled in the 1798 census as Mutz. In the 1834 and 1857 census, it was spelled Lotz. Lotz was still incorrect, but that spelling of the surname seemed to remain, at least through the 1857 census.
