WILLIAM K. LUTZ
William K. LUTZ was born in West Maryland county, Pennsylvania, Aug. 27, 1838, and passed away at his home in Eldon, Aug. 22, 1921, at the age of 82 years, 11 months and 26 days.
Mr. LUTZ came to Iowa with his parents in the early 40's and settled on a farm near Libertyville, where he grew to manhood. He was married to Miss Elizabeth MILLER in Fairfield on Sept. 6, 1865, she having preceded him in death on July 25, 1918.
To this union were born fifteen children, all of whom are now living with the exception of two infant daughters, a son Basil, who died in 1905, and a daughter, Mrs. Laura BROWN, who passed away in 1920.
About thirty years ago Mr. LUTZ united with the Brethren church near Batavia, where the family has resided for a number of years. In the spring of 1904 he moved to Eldon so that his boys might engage in railroad work. ...
