Hubert Frohn, who owns and is operating a fine farm of two hundred and forty acres on section 22, Centerville precinct, was born upon that place on the 9th of February 1874, a son of William Frohn, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. He was reared under the parental roof and in the acquirement of his education attended the public schools. After the time that he attained his majority he was an experienced farmer, as he assisted his father during his boyhood and youth, and he determined to devote his life to agricultural pursuits. For five years he and a brother, William Henry Frohn, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this volume, operated the home farm in partnership, but Hubert Frohn now owns the place. and is fanning it alone.
The buildings are modern and commodious and the land is in a high state of cultivation. He raises both grain and stock, filling such a course more profitable than specializing in either, and he derives a good income from his well directed labors. The farm comprises two hundred and forty acres and is one of the valuable properties of Centerville precinct. Mr. Frohn was united in marriage in 1901 to Miss Lena Krull, a daughter of Fredrich Krull, a farmer of Centerville precinct, and to this union have been born four children, namely, Edna, Leona, Hubert, Jr., and Dorothy.
Mr. Frohn votes independently and is interested in all that pertains to the public welfare but has never sought office. His wife is a member of of the Methodist church and both conform their lives to high standards of morality. Mr. Frohn has gained a competence through his energy and good judgment and he has also won a high place in the estimation of his fellow citizens as his dominant qualities are such as invariably command respect.
