William, Peter, Catherine, and Hattie, Etc.
Muir lived with the Trout Family of Meaford Ontario, from fall
of 1864 to spring 1866. Showing his inventive genius, Muir worked
to improve the output of rake and broom handles in Trout's Mill
during this period. After hours, Muir discussed religion, the
natural world, and mechanization with the family patriarch,
William Trout. Muir later corresponded with Harriet "Hattie" Trout.
