Allentown. one of the substantial farmers of this township, was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, September 13, 1853, son of John and Elizabeth Ann (Miller) Lutz, the former born in Maryland, January 13, 1820. John Lutz was married November 20, 1845, to Sarah Ann Griffith, and by this union was born one child, Phoebe Ann (now wife of David Brennemen of German Township, Allen Co., Ohio).

John Lutz was an influential farmer, a man of good judgment and in every sense a self made man. He died February 22, 1873, and his loss was deeply mourned.

He was married November 21, 1875 to Miss Catherine, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth (Housel) Alexander, natives of Pennsylvania, and early settlers of Allen County, now residents of German Township. They have two Sons: Orlo E., born July 30, 1877, and Harry A., born December 4, 1880. Mr. Lutz's early recollections are of the pioneer days in Amanda Township, where his parents located in October 1855. He still resides upon the old home farm, where he recently erected a fine residence and frame barn, and where he has raised stock to considerable extent, being interested in high grade short horn cattle and sheep and Poland China hogs. Religiously he is a member of the Methodist Epis copal Church. In politics he is a Republican. Mr. Lutz inherits his father's energetic enterprising nature, and is highly esteemed by the community who sympathize with him in his partial retirement from active life on account of hip joint disease.
