Among the industrious and enterprising citizens of Fairfield township, Fayette county, the subject of this sketch occupies an enviable position, and because of sterling qualities of character he enjoys the high regard of all who know him. Mr. Krug was born in 1881 and is therefore one of the younger men of the county, but he is the stamp of young man to whom the community must look for its future growth and development,--for it is the present generation of young men of ambition, courage, energy, and brains upon whom the public not only depends at this time, but will rely upon wholly during the next generation. Mr. Krug is the son of Fred and Mary. B. (Nus) Krug. Mr. Krug being a native of Germany, where he was born on April 7, 1853, coming to America in 1873 and locating in Fayette county on September 25, 1879. Mrs. Krug is a native of Fayette county, and was born on April 9, 1857, being the daughter of Hugo and Henreicka Nus, early settlers in Fayette County, who, since becoming residents of the county have prospered exceedingly and hold a place among the prominent and influential families of Fairfield township. His parents were married on September 25, 1879, and began their domestic life on the farm where they still make their home, a fine farm in section 26, Fairfield township. The father is an energetic, practical farmer, most up to date in his methods of farming, handling stock and breeding. His place is wel1 equipped with all modern improvements, with a tasteful and substantial house with good surroundings. His advanced ideas in farming and stock breeding are especially shown by the fine buildings he has erected for the housing of his stock, particularly with a view to protecting the young. In politics he is a Democrat. He has shown his public spiritedness in many ways and has served his school district for twenty-five years. Both parents are members of the Lutheran church. Their four children are, Matilda, wife of S. Koehler, residing in Clayton county, Iowa; Alma and Hulda, who make their home with their parents, and Herman J., the subject of this review. Herman J. Krug is already proving his ability as a farmer on land which he has leased, for on this tract he is very successfully doing general farming, as well as raising and breeding fine stock. He is a well-informed young man of exemplary habits and industry, is unmarried and makes his home with his parents. He is a member of the Lutheran church. Politically he is a Republican and takes an active though quiet interest in the fortunes of his party locally.
