I have been conducting my own personal family history research for about 10 years now, and the more I uncover, the more I want to know and share! So much so, that I have become interested in other family history stories as well as my own.
From this interest I started a blog with the Frederick News Post in Maryland "I heart John Trout." Click on the pictures below to check out these stories! Enjoy!
The intent of the blog is to take the reader through my journey of researching this colorful character while telling his story and his life in Frederick County. John Trout was a Union veteran of the Civil War. In his later years he was an object of media fascination through his efforts to find a wife by using the local papers. He seemed to start quite a trend! Tragedy ensued in the end. Follow along and see what I uncover!
