Wife of Alden Rice Grout, married 24 AUG 1841 in Monroe City, Monroe County, Missouri. Daughter of Ignatius Gough and Susan Beaven.

1979 Shelbina Democrat, by Barbara Greenwell
"The Grout family emigrated to the midwest from Essex County, Vermont in the 1830' and early 40's. They were straight-laced New Englanders, and found life in Missouri very difficult compared to what they had experienced in Vermont. They were educated and came as teachers to the frontier territory. Grandpa Alden Rice and his maiden sisters, Prudence Helen (she has always been known in the family as P.H.) and Harriet St. John Grout taught some of the earliest schools held in Northeast Missouri," said Miss Anna Ryan Greenwell. Their father, Reuben S. Grout is buried in the Salem Baptist Cemetery, northeast of Paris in Monroe County.
Alden Rice Grout (1817-1862) went to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Alden left about April 1849. Grout returned to his home and family in late 1851 or early 1852. A baby daughter, Mary Lyon, was born to the couple December 26, 1852. Four more children followed, Frank Minor in 1852, twins Ann R. and Alden Rice, Jr. born in 1856, and the youngest, Lillian Isabelle, in 1858. Their 13 year-old son Selden died in March of 1857, and the youngest son Alden, Jr. in 1861. Alden Grout died in 1862 and his wife Harriet Ann in 1863, leaving their children orphaned. They were looked after by their aunts and uncles and lived to be grown.
