Luther, Descendants of.

Contemporary descendants of M. Luther* (called Lutherides, or Lutherids) are traced through his son Paul and daughter Margaret; see also Luther, Family Life of. Many are in the US. With great-great-grandson Martin Gottlob Luther, attorney in Dresden, the family name died out November 3, 1759.
