LUETJEN Gevert and Metta
Gevert and Metta Luetjen of Hollen Germany attended the old Evangelisch Lutheran church in Bramstedt, Germany. They brought eight or more children into this world, many of whom found their way to the new land, the United States of America.
This search began in the town of Rockville, Connecticut where many of their descendants still live. At least four of their sons came to this town about 1884 to 1886.Two brothers, Martin and John came first, and two years later Henry and George followed. The men came first followed shortly by their wives and children. They farmed and worked in the woolen mills here. They attended Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church, and raised their families in the love and fear of God.
Other children came to the USA first to their brothers in Connecticut, and then on to settle in New York and Michigan. Now we have "cousins" spread throughout the country as well as many, many still in Germany.
