Philip A. Troutfetter

To give readers a visual, this is a picture of Philip A. Troutfetter from the files of the Kansas Historical Society which we'll be discussing in the next issue of Casefile Clues.
Readers have read about the Trautvetter family before and Troutfetter is not a typographical error. For reasons that have been lost to time, Philip's father chose to spell his name as Troutfetter, particularly after his arrival in Thomas County, Kansas.
No citation on this picture, but there will be citations in our upcoming issue of Casefile Clues (subscribe).
