The Krout family is of German extraction, but has been established in this county for many years. Doctor Krout became actively engaged in the practice of medicine in 1884, and was at Fremont from 1891, becoming one of the best known physicians of his county. He was injured in an automobile accident while hurrying to the bedside of a dying patient. After a month of intense suffering, he passed to his reward on January 11, 1929, leaving a heritage of blessed memories.
