    !NAME: Parish records; St Martins-Kirch; Tellingstedt, Schleswig-Holstein,
    Germany. (Listed as husband of Maria Sophia Luise THIESS and father of their
    BIR: Westlawn Cemetery tombstone; Grand Island, Hall, NE. [Tombstone reads:
    Father - Claus Luethge - Aug. 2, 1817 - Sept. 21, 1886.]
    Ancestral File has estimated his birthyear incorrectly at [1836]. The birthdate
    on his tombstone is correct from family records. Claus was 30 years old when
    his first child was born. He was 46 years old when his ninth, and last child,
    was born.

    VARIED SPELLINGS: Lutje (with umlat over "u"); Luetje; Luetge; Luethje; Luethge;
    Luethjen; Luetjen; Luthje.

    He and his wife and two daughters came to America in 1886. The rest of their
    family was already here. Because of accidents he was somewhat crippled. He
    engaged in gardening and landscaping in Germany. He died in Grand Island, NE
    shortly after arriving in America. (Source: Family History written by
    Margaretha Luethje, wife of John Boje Richard Luethje, son of Claus. History in
    possession of Della Hinthorn, Independence, KS. I have copy.)

    While we were in Germany in 1986 we found the home where the family lived in
    Welmbuttel. It is still a "Garten Pflanzen" (Garden Plant). We would call it a
    "Plant Nursery" here in America.

    1900 Federal Census of Grand Island, Nebraska reads that Louise Luethge came
    to America in 1868, but this must have been an error of superimposed numbers,
    because Claus Luethge died the year he came to America. He died in 1886. Clause
    and Louise came together.

    Claus Luethge and daughter,Johanna (Luetje) Schultz, are buried side by side.
    There is a large tree to the right side of Johanna's grave, and on the right
    side of the tree is buried Ernst Schultz, son of Johanna.
