Lorbach, Isenburg[-Buedingen County]: is some 2 miles SSW of Buedingen city.  Bonner found that his Vonhausen marriage record said Herr Reiss (who went as a Reuss to Balzer) was fromUC here. Bonner also proved the Lohrengel man who also settled in Balzer was baptized here and was also married in Vonhausen, same County, to a woman whose family name is unclear in the record.  Said by the Kutter FSL (#67) to be homeUC to a Nazarenus family; and by the Buedingen ML to be homeUC to both Nazarenus and his Koch bride (Mai&Marquardt#577).   Said by the Walter FSL to be home to a Nazarenus family; confirmed in parish records by the Walter Research Project.

Loret(t)us/Lovetus/LorethusFN{ J.Balthasar}: was a farmhand on the Bruhns Hof in Julianenebene colony, Gottorf Amt, Schleswig-Holstein prior to 1763 when he left to go back into the Odenwald, to Erlau [sic for Erbach County?].  A possible earlier home was in Pfaffen-Beerfurth.  By April 1766, he, his wife and five children had left  Fraenkisch-Crumbach and were in Buedingen on their way to  Russia, where they settled in Neu-Saratowka (Gieg1).  Fraenkisch-Crumbach parish records say he left there with wife and 2 children (Mai&Marquardt#1269).  On 5 Apr 1766 in Buedingen a son of {J.Balthasar and A.Catharina} was baptized (Mai&Marquardt#1202).   KS144 says Lovetus was from Erlau  bei Passau, but born in Schleswig-Holstein, and went to  village near Petersburg.

Lothringen [Duchy]GS: this ancient Duchy of the Holy Roman Empire was periodically occupied by France in the 16th and 17th centuries.  From 1737 to 1766 it was nominally independent, ruled by a Polish duke, with strong French influence.  From 1766 to 1870 is was entirely within France as the province of Lorraine.  It is was said (no locality mentioned) by the Belowescher Kolonien FSL to be homeUC to a Bisbaum family.  Said (no locality mentioned) by Kulberg93 to be homeUC to Goering{Thomas+w+3c) Catholics.

LotnerFN: listed by the 1816 Glueckstal census (KS:675, 92) with no origin.  Using FHL(1,192,862), the GCRA proved origin in Seewis-im-Pratigau, Graubunden Kanton, Schweis.  See the GCRA book for more details.  Ladner is the better spelling.

LotzFN: said by the Boaro FSL to be fromUC Stangendorf.  Spelled Lotz in 1798 (Mai1798: Mn01, 30).

Lo(t)zFN{A.Elis.}: this was the maiden name of frau Schmunk who left Fraenkisch-Crumbach for Russia in 1766  with her husband and children (Gieg1).  KS144 says she left Asbach near Darmstadt with 4 children heading for Dorf  near Petersburg.  They are listed in the Dobrinka FSL #68.

Lotz/Lutz/Loz{Daniel/J.Daniel}: Corina Hirt using LDS Film #1336791 found that he married Herzog{Catharina} and that their three known children were baptized in Villingen 1757-1765, the youngest dying there in 1766.  This family arrived in Russia                 12 May 1766, he said to be from Villing (Kulberg132).  Not found in T.  By 10 May 1766 this couple and their two children had settled at Kano FSL #76, he said to be fromUC Villingen (and KS144).  Jim Pickelhaupt says he found this man’s origin. In 1798 the widow, plus a married son and family were still in Kano, which census gave the maiden name of the widow as Herzog, while their married daughter and family were living in Zurich (Mai1798:Kn26, Zr42).

Lotz{A.Maria}: married Ruhl{J.Andreas} in Buedingen 14 May 1766 both from Langenschwartz (Mai&Marquardt#648). Mai&Marquardt seem to suggest that this marriage entry may have been a mistake, corrected by Kulberg3622. I tend to think the man in 648 was not the man in 646 since there are the following two separate entries for arrival in Russia:  On 29 Aug 1766 Ruhl{Andreas} with wife {Anna} he arrived in Russia, he said to be from Darmstadt (Kulberg3644) and on 29 Aug 1766 Riel [Ruhl]{Andreas}  with wife {Anna} he arrived in Russia, said to be from Darmstadt (Kulberg3622).  See Ruhl{Andreas} of Kraft.

Lotz{Christopher}FN: Kulberg7014 says this Lutz family arrived in Oranienbaum in September 1766.  They are probable Zug first settlers said by Recruiter Beauregard’s 1768 list (Lk18) to have been fromUC Riegersdorf?.  For 1798 see Mai1798: Zg37 and 48.

Lotz{Johann sr.}: KS144 says he left Breitenbach near Schluechtern.  Not identified in any other source.

Lotz{Johannes}:  KS144 says he left Billings near Schluechtern.  Not identified in any other source.

Louis{Anton}: he, his Decker wife and children were in Zug in 1798 (Zg28, 24, 38), but they are listed in no FSL nor in T, nor is there any indication they moved to Zug from another colony, so they are possible Zug first settlers.

LuzernVV (aka Michailowka, Remmler, Roemmler): a Lutheran German colony founded in 1767 on the eastern side of the Volga river not far from Meinhard.  To the best of my knowledge no copy of its First Settlers’ List has been found and published.  Anyone learning of such a docient, please let us know immediately.  However, we have origin information on some of its first or nearly first settlers – this information is available in “Kolonisten des Lokators Beauregard, die voruebergehend in anderen Kolonien angesiedelt wuerden” in pages 349-380 of Pleve, Einwanderung …, vol.4. The numbers in parens below indicate the position of a family in that list, identified in this Index as Lk.  In addition, we have family names of some who probably were first settlers here based on (1) other colonies having said they moved in from Luzern or (2) they were living in Luzern in 1798 – and in both cases I found no record saying they had moved from any other village to Luzern, and they were not found in any printed FSL.  Such families listed below with  no origin and have no number in parens following their name.  Placenames in italics are taken from Kuhlberg lists as printed in the Pleve books.
