----------
          Charles Frederick Fout, son of  Earnest and Louisa Parmeier Fout, was born at Krull, in Prussia Germany, Westphalia province, on November 8, 1838.  Two brothers, five sisters and one half brother shared this home with him.
          According to the rules of his country, at the age of eighteen, he was taken into the standing army and gave three years of his life doing military service.  Opportunities in America were inviting and he decided to come here, his brother  Earnest  having been here for some years.  He arrived on September 28, 1863, at the age of 25 years.  On October 7, 1865, he received the papers which made him a citizen of the United States, to which allegiance he always remained true.
          On May 7, 1865, he was married to  Katherine Lang.  To this union were born eight children, one having died in infancy.  His wife preceded him to the other world eight years ago last January.
          In their early married life they united with the M. E. church at New Palestine, Indiana; later having moved to Fountaintown, they removed their membership to the M. E. church of that place where they both remained members until the time of their death.
          Besides relatives and friends he leaves to mourn his loss, seven children, five sons and two daughters, Charles  and  Harvey of Catesby, Oklahoma;  Frank  of near Greenfield;  Edward,  Horace  and  Arilla  at home, and  Mrs. Raymond Wilcoxon  of Gwynneville.  He also leaves six grandchildren.
          He was upright and honest in all his dealings with his fellowmen, a loyal citizen, a good neighbor, a most kind and patient father and grandfather, always taking the sunny side of life for his examples.  He was a lover of his home and ever ready with cheerful word and smile for all whom he met.  He had a remarkable memory and during the last few years of his life he enjoyed reading and talking with friends of the events of long past years.
          His first serious illness came in January 1921, and from that time his health failed fast until the call of his Maker called him to that home which so surely waits for all of us.
          He departed this life on March 24, 1924, aged 85 years, 4 months, and 16 days.
----------
"Neath our eyes he faded slowly
Growing day by day more frail,
Bearing sweetly all his sufferings
Without murmur, moan or wail.
A loving father and grandfather kind
None other on earth like him we'll find.
For all of us he did his best,
May God grant him eternal rest.
All is dark within our home
Lonely are our hearts today
Because the one we loved so dearly
Has forever passed away.
More and more each day we'll miss him
Friends may think the wound will heal
But they do not know the sorrow
That within our hearts we conceal."
          Funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Fountaintown, on Wednesday afternoon, March 26, 1924, at 3 o'clock.  Rev. J. W. J. Collins officiating.  Burial was made in the Fountaintown cemetery in charge of Herrlich and Son.

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want;
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters; He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake;
yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me."
          Death, uninvited, has entered our home and taken one without whom the home is left so sad and lonely. God in his wisdom has called our beloved wife and mother, and though our hearts ache as we miss her face, and see the empty chair, we know that He doeth all things well.
          Catherine Elizabeth Lang, daughter of  Mary and Jacob Lang, was born in Hancock County, Indiana, on February 9, 1841.  On May 7, 1865, she was married to Charles Frederick Fout.  To this union were born eight children, one having died in infancy.
          Mr. and Mrs. Fout united with the M. E. church at New Palestine in 1879.  Later having moved to Fountaintown, they removed their membership to the M. E. church of that place, of which church she remained a member until the time of her death.
          Her first serious illness came in the fall of 1905, when she had the first stroke of paralysis.  Since that time her health had been bad, and gradually failing, until about two weeks before her death she became the victim of lagrippe, which caused her death on January 17, 1916.
          Had she lived a few weeks longer she would have reached her seventy-fifth birthday, her age at the time of her death being 74 years 11 months and 8 days.
          Mr. and Mrs. Fout passed the half-century mark in married life in May 1915, having been married fifty years last May.
          She was most devoted to her family and while her health was good was always ready and willing to help her neighbors and friends in time of sickness or need.
          Besides relatives and friends, she leaves to mourn her loss a devoted husband, five sons,  Charles,  Edward,  Horace,  Frank  and  Harvey; two daughters,  Arilla and Elsieklo;  a brother, Joseph Lang,  and a sister,  Louisa Gattinger,  three daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren.  Two of the sons,  Charles and Harvey,  of Oklahoma, were not able to attend the funeral; neither her brother or sister, of Missouri.
          The funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Fountaintown on January 19 at 2:30 p.m.  Internment was at the Fountaintown cemetery.
----------
Some day we know we shall see her,
But the road is so lonesome between
Our spirits grow sick and impatient
For a glimpse of the pastures so green.
Till then we shall sit in the doorway,
In the house our hearts love best,
And think when God's children pass homeward
Our mother will come home with the rest.
