Herman Krouse, Jr., a well-known farmer of Lynn Township, having a good farm in Section 17, was born in Pommern, Germany, March 4, 1862, son of Herman and Rica Fredericka (Megloen) Krouse. The parents came to the United States in 1871, with four children, Herman, Albert, Charles and Henry, and after five years settled in Grant Township, where the father developed a good farm. Herman, Jr., was educated in Clark County, attending the district school and helping to clear his father's farm. He also spent eleven winters in the logging camps of Clark County, driving cattle on the skidway as he was a good canthook man. Later, he bought a tract of forty acres in Section 17, Lynn Township, the land being covered with pine stumps and timber, and away from any road. He had already married Mary Grose, a native of Germany, and for the accommodation of himself and wife, built a good frame house. Since then he has cleared his land and increased the size of his farm to 200 acres, having also built a barn 38 by 72 feet in size. He keeps a good grade of cattle, as well as blooded Percheron horses.

Nine children have been born to him and his wife: Emil, Walter, Cleo, Martin, Martha, Gertie, Lydia, Aggie and Lottie. Emil, who lives in Lynn Township, married Hattie Shire, and has three children-Hazel, Eddis and Elroy. Martha is the wife of Elmer Rose, of York Township, Clark County, and has one son, Glenn. Gertie is the wife of John Brassman of Lynn. Lydia, who married Ray Ure of Chili, has one child a son, Ralph. Aggie, who married Edward Ure and lives in Lynn Township, has one child, Neva.
