Birth: Dec. 22, 1886, USA
Death: Jun. 21, 1956
Sandpoint
Bonner County
Idaho, USA

Fred was born to Edward U. Grimm and Martha Cloud. He married Elsie Blenkarn Burt (daughter of George S. Burt, Jr. and Lilian Emily Frances Blenkarn) on 10 Jun 1914 in Topeka, Kansas.

Elsie and Fred had 2 daughters:
Margaret
Sylvia

Fred and Elsie spent the first 5 years of their married life in Eastern Kansas in rural areas not far from Topeka renting several different farms, but felt they wanted something of their own, and then is when they discovered the "stump ranch" in Idaho. So with Elsie's parents, in the fall of 1919 they moved to Sandpoint, Idaho. It was not easy making a living there and before long Fred went to work on the Great Northern section crew at Colburn, three miles from the small farm. He worked on the Railroad and farmed util a heart attack forced him to quit the railroad. He recovered enough to farm a small herd of cows for seven years the had another heart attack so he sold his cattle and rented the crop land to others. He enjoyed a few years of retirement before he died in 1956 of a stroke. Elsie and Fred were active in community affairs, and Fred served on the local school board for a number of years. They worked with a small rural church and Sunday school nearby.
