Biographical/Historical: Issac (b. 1790) and Jacob (b. 1792) were two of nine children born to Philip Trout, a wheelwright in Front Royal, VA. When Philip Trout died in 1812, Issac and Jacob ran the factory on Chester Street. In 1830, Issac married Araminta Pagett and had six children, four of whom died in infancy. The brothers had a successful wagon building business, which received orders from as far away as Florida. Issac died in 1873 at the age of 83 and Jacob died in 1853 at age 61.
