The following is an excerpt from an article in the History of Clark County,
Wisconsin published in 1918.

"Frederick Carl Luther, who is engaged in operating a good farm in section 2,
Loyal Township, where he has resided many years, was born in Posen, Germany,
Mar. 3, 1858, son of Ludwig and Julianna (Schultz) Luther. The parents, who
were farming people, died in Germany. They had five children, Frederick,
Julius, Minnie, Emma and Gusta. Of these Frederick was the only one to
emigrate to the United States, which he did in 1882, settling near Watertown,
in Jefferson County, Wis. The journey to America was in reality a wedding trip
for him, as he had married in Germany, Mar. 23, that year, Wilhelmina Schultz,
daughter of August and Wilhelmina (Zaber) Schultz, whose parents, extensive
farmers, had six children -- Gustave, August, Henrietta, Julia, Wilhelmina and
Emma. Before his marriage Frederick C. Luther has acquired a good education,
had worked five years at railroad work in Germany and served two years as a
soldier. After arriving in this country he and his wife lived in Jefferson
County for about two years, he working at the mason's trade."

I am looking for any information on any members of this family.  Especially
those members who stayed in Germany.  I don't know anything about researching
records in countries other than the US.  Any information, help, or suggestions
will be appreciated.  I am happy to share any information that I have.
