nition and aid throughout the whole history of this church.

"Other figures grouped around the preacher with the uplifted hand, shall keep in per-
petual memorial the strong layman, with his armor on, ready for the next hour's duty,
and the honest yeoman, and the godly and vigilant citizen. . . . Fitting it is that
among the memorial figures above this jiulpit. should stand the soldier ready for action,
and one, the most venerable of them all. devout in aspect, who gra.sps his musket in his
still firm hand, while he listens to the word of the Eternal.

"Still another grouping of figures in our window will set before us a different, yet no
less important and most grateful lesson of our histor.v ; — we behold also here the puritan
mother with her child. No historian has adequatel.v portrayed, no poet has fully sung
the epic of the life of the puritan mother in the making of our New England. We greet
and honor her, as our eyes now behold her, content to take a lowly station, listening in
devout devotion, having forsaken the comfortable and happy promise of her girlhood's
home for her dear Lord and Master's sake, — no longer richly clad, yet having a grace and
spiritual beauty all her own, — the earnest, brave, true-hearted puritan woman, consecra-
ting her child to God, that he might not return to the country whence she had come
forth, — worthy erelong herself to take high place serene among God's martyrs and
saints, — woman to whom many of us this day might give dear and personal name, for she
is the mother of us all.

"Often I have heard the late Mr. Ezekiel H. Trowbridge speak with reverent recollec-
tion of the principles and instructions of his father : and to the sober and godly counsels
of his childhood's home he owed the firm-grained integrity and the industrious vigor of his
own successful life. Letters have been treasured up, written by that father to his son
during his earlier years, which are marked by that high tone of religious responsibility
and fidelity which has been the distinctive note of the best New England character. . .
We can understand how he would rejoice with us at this hour, could he be with us to
behold this finished work of beauty, which his son has wrought for the church in the
father's name. Perhaps he, and many others whom we see no more, may be with us,
watching over us more than we know, — God permits for both them and us whatever may
be best.

"I knew Mr. Trowbridge as his pastor, better perhaps than many others may have had
opportunity to know him, in those deeper and richer elements of character which men in
business are not wont to display except in the unguarded intimacies of private life,- —
those kindlier and nobler qualities which shall be. we trust, elsewhere the daily felicities
of those friendships in which the spirits of the just shall be made perfect. I miss his
vigorous presence in his accustomed pew : and you know that a firm and loyal friend of
this church was lost when he was gathered to his fathers. Yet grateful as might be to
me the task of speaking further of the more personal and private characteristics of the
man, I am reminded by the presence of many in the employ of that great industry to
whose upbuilding Mr. Trowbridge gave the full measure of his business life, that some
fitting words rather should be spoken of the service which a man may render to a com-
munity who puts his business ability and his capital to productive use in building up any
honorable enterprise, by means of which, employment and means of livelihood shall be
furnished to large numbers of his fellowmen. One of the business principles which Mr.
Trowbridge inherited, and which I have often heard him uphold with great emphasis,
was that in some ways profitable to the community, as well as to himself, every man
should seek to be a producer and that the true worth and moral justification of capital
consist in its productive use. To the upbuilding of a vast railway system, and to the
interests of all concerned in its prosperity, Mr. Trowbridge gave without stint or meiusure,
up to the very last, his time and st7-ength. Besides the use of riches in works of benevo-
lence there is a lesson from such a life, which both labor and capital may need repeatedly
to learn, concerning the honorable service which may be rendered by any man whose
strength and sagacity furnish the employment from which others may build their homes,
and whose personal success advances the prosperity of his fellowmen."

52. Winston John Trowbridge (Henry^^, Butherfoi-d^", Daniel^, Thomas*,
Thomas-, Thomas'^), bom May 10, 1820, in New Haven, Conn.; died November
6, 1864, in New Haven ; married, first, June 12, 1850, in New Haven, Mary
Dwight Newton Leavenworth, adopted daughter of Isaac Leavenworth of New
Haven and daughter of Eev. Samuel and Mary Hunt (Seeley nee McCarthy)
Newton, bom January 11, 1829, in Harmony Mission, Osage Nation ; died Octo-

New Haven, Margarette Elford Dean, daughter of James Edmund Prior and
Eliza Ellen (Jarman) Dean, bom December 22, 1828, in New Haven; died
January 2, 1903, in New Haven.

Winston J. Trowbridge was engaged in the West India business with his
father. At nineteen he was sent to Barbados to take charge of the increasing
sugar interests of the firm in the West Indies. On coming of age he was
admitted a partner of the home firm and of Trowbridge & Co., the West India
firm. After his father's death he and his three brothers established the firm of H.
Trowbridge's Sons. He was the first of the name to reside in the West Indies,
and the great prosperity of the firm dated from his residence there, and was in a
large measure due to his management. In the conduct of an ever increasing
business he traveled freqviently among the islands, visiting the various ports
where business warranted. He was appointed August 31, 1852, United States
consul for Barbados and adjacent English islands by President Eillmore with
credentials from Queen Victoria. He continued to serve as such, and throughout
the period of the Civil War was able to render important service to his country
and fellow citizens. At Barbados he entertained extensively, and many notable
American and English travelers have pleasant recollections of the hospitable
and courteous treatment received from him at his residence, Erin Hall. In the
faU of 1864, his health failing, he returned to New Haven for medical treatment,
leaving his family at Barbados. He died shortly after his arrival, at the resi-
dence of his brother Ezekiel. After his death his family removed to New Haven.

Mr. Trowbridge was admitted a member of the First Church of New Haven in
1853, and his second wife, Mrs. Margarette E. Trowbridge, was received into that
church by certificate in 1858.

66. John William Trowbridge (John T."^, John'>-^, DanieP, Thomas*, Thomas^,
Thomas'^), bom April 12, 1S07, in New Haven, Conn.; died June 21, 1878, in

Chicago, 111.; married , 1838, in Oswego, N. Y., Jane Maria Godard.

daughter of Moses and Rhoda (Wheaton) Godard, bom January 22, 1819, in
Canada ; died September 10, 1853, in Burlington, Wis.

John W. Trowbridge went in childhood with his parents to Rochester, N. Y.
He commenced his business career as a young man in Oswego and was interested
in several business enterprises in Western New York. In 1828 he started west-
ward, locating in Cleveland, Ohio, and being identified with the early history of
that city. In May, 1840, he followed his father to Racine county, Wis., and
located a homestead of 160 acres about six miles from his father, in the town of
Burlington, where he engaged in farming.

Probably Ho other man was more generally known or more closely connected
with the local affairs of the county at that early date. He held the office of
register of deeds from 1849 to 1853, and also opened the first abstract office. He
was noted for the accuracy, system and conciseness which characterized all his
labor. He was also sergeant-at-arms of the territorial legislature. His public
duties caused him to move to Racine, and he lived there several years. He there
owned a half interest in the Racine Advocate and considerable real estate. In
the panic of 1857 he, like many others, met with serious financial losses, and in
the spring of 1858 he rented out his farm in Burlington and moved to Chicago,
lU. He had been an expert bookkeeper in his younger days and he was engaged
in the office of Buckingham & Sturgis, a grain and elevator firm in that city, for
about a year, then returning to Racine. During the Civil War he represented a
large wholesale and retail Chicago drj' goods firm as traveling salesman. In 1868
he returned again to Racine and became an employee in the abstract office which
he had founded in the early days of his residence there. He lived in Racine until
Noveml>er, 1877, when he went to reside with a daughter, Mrs. Haines, in
Chicago, where he died the following June.

Mr. Trowbridge was a man of strong individuality, and tenacious of his views
and opinions, which were always forcibly and fearlessly expressed. He was open
and frank in his demeanor, always ready to expose and denounce trickery and
fraud in public or private life. He was frequently drawn into the turmoil and
strife of the county political affairs, but even when party feeling ran high and
political excitement was such as to create prejudice and ill feeling, no person ever
cast one shadow of doubt on liis honesty or integrity. He was a man in his
political, religious and local views fifty years in advance of his time, but he
lived to see slavery abolished and the Free Homestead Act passed, two measures
that he had advocated and worked for for years. He had strong literary tastes
and could recite long selections from his favorite authors. His last words were :
"Tell my friends, I die in the faith."

Lockwood, daughter of John and Esther (Field) Lockwood, born June 9, 1817, in
Springfield, Vt. ; died January 24, 1891, in Superior, "VJ^is.

Stewart H. Trowbridge at the age of nineteen, in 1836, emigrated with his
father from Rochester, N. Y., to Dover, six miles from Burlington, Racine
county. Wis., and began life as a farmer, an occupation which he ever since fol-
lowed. When he settled in Wisconsin, liis nearest neighbor was six miles distant,
but, in the course of time, his homestead became surrounded with those of otlier
settlers, and he, by reason of an even tamper, genial disposition, and a rigidly
upright character, joined to good judgment, came to be highly esteemed. He
always took an active and intelligent interest in politics and affairs of govern-
ment, but never accepted office, although often urged to do so. He made an
exception to this rule by accepting the office of school district officer, serving
many times in that capacity. On his farm in Wisconsin was located a school-
house and a church, ground for both of which he gave.

During the Civil War, when it was reported that his eldest son was mortally
wounded at Perryville, Mr. Trowbridge left home to seek him. He reached Louis-
ville, to find comnnfnication with Perryville vei-y uncertain on account of the
operations of the noted guerrilla Morgan, but nothing daunted he pushed on,
reached his son, and brought him back to Louisville, where he nursed him until
he was out of danger, procured his discharge, and took him home, where in due
time he recovered.

In October, 1863, Mr. Trowbridge removed to Minnesota and purchased a farm
in Lyle township. Mower county, near the county seat. Austin. He resided there
until his death, except for a period of two years which he passed with his eldest
son in Portland, Ore. He died at the home of his son Henry in Lyle. By his
life work he emphasized his motto of "be good and do good."

• He failed to answer the compiler's letters. He is said to have served in Missouri and
Colorado regiments in the Civil War.
