Benjamin F. Utz was my great-grandfather. He died before I came along, but his son, George Fred Utz, was my father's father, and Zue Utz was his sister. It's been a while, and I was quite young, so a lot of this is from memory,but I believe it is fairly accurate. Zue Utz married Estel Sanders, and their son, Bennie, was father to Susan Sanders. My parents left Kosciusko (and Thomastown, where my grandparents lived) when I was about nine years old.Also...Louis Utz was my great uncle..he, Zue, the Sanders clan...all lived near McVille, between Kosciusko and Thomastown. Louis's son, Jimmie Utz, still lives in that area to this day. Most, if not all, of my granddad's people still live in the Delta area...at least those that still remain. I could go on and on, but I chanced upon your posting and just had to reply. By the way...my day was Jack Carl Utz, and passed away about four years ago. I still have ties to that area, and some kin fold left. I now reside near Nashville, Tn. Any one out there can feel free to contact my at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Jack W. Utz
