|Bio and Links|
I have enjoyed mysteries all my life.|
When I discovered that my paternal grandfather, Enos Francis TROUT, Sr. married Sarah Chalfant TROUT, and that my maternal great-grandfather John Landis HERR married Barbara Kreider HERR, I absolutely had to find out if the married spouses were related to each other; perhaps they first met at a family reunion!?!
Since I have a cousin researching my HERR ancestry, I decided to focus on my TROUT heritage.
Now, six years and 3,400 names later, I continue to be intrigued and challenged to find out all that I can about the TROUTs in Lancaster County, Pa., since they basically all descended from my sixth great-grandfather, Johann Wendel Georg TRAUT, an immigrant farmer from Germany. Discovering his homestead and burying ground near Paradise, Lancaster County, Pa. has been among my most exciting finds. However, my newly-found relatives, and especially a fantastic TROUT researcher, Craig H. TROUT, have made this project nothing short of a blessing in my life.
Every minute of this ancestry research I spend in honor and memory of my wonderful father, who passed away following a 10-year struggle with Alzheimer's Disease.
I want to thank every individual who has helped me with TROUT information, and for each and every person who has transferred memorials to my care in order to preserve and complement the history of the TROUT legacy in Lancaster County!

|David & Carolyn (Mount) Plank||Mrs. Harry L. Beam|
Donald, thank you for the obituary for Mrs Beam. I have addd the obituary to her memorial. Please take the time to check and see if you approve.
|Craig H. Trout||Transfer of TROUT memorials|
Thank you so much for all the recent obituaries!
I just realized I had never transferred the Hon. Henry Leighttner TROUT and brother Frank Burrows TROUT to you, so I transferred them just a few minutes ago.
I am well aware of your great interest in Mayor TROUT and I am hopeful that you will add a bit of biography to his memorial.
|Craig H. Trout||TROUT memorials at Longeneckers|
I have just transferred (119) TROUT-related memorials to you for Longeneckers Reformed Mennonite Cemetery, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Your work to survey this cemetery plus photograph all TROUT headstones has made a truly remarkable contribution to the descendants of these various TROUT family lines.
Thanks again for all you do...
