Crawford, daughter of John and Charlotte (Sanders) Crawford, born February
16, 1842, in Jersey City, N. J. ; died February 6, 1898, in Portland.

Miles M. Trowbridge passed the first fourteen years of his life in the imme-
diate neighborhood of his grandfather, and learned lessons of patriotism from his
lips through stories of his adventurous life. He worked on his father's farm
summers and attended the common school winters \mtil the breaking out of the
Civil War in 1861. His father restrained liim from enlisting with the three
month men, but when Fremont's proclamation in Missouri disclosed that it
would be a fight to a finish, and remove the cause of the war, his consent was
given and Miles enlisted September 10, 1861, in Company C, 1st Wisconsin
Infantry, for three years and went as one of the color guards to that regiment.
The regiment was employed in keeping open communications and similar duties
in Kentucky, Tennessee and Northern Alabama until September, 1862.*

The first serious battle in which tlie regiment engaged was at Perryville, Octo-
ber 8, 1862. During the battle, the regiment in front lost every field ofiicer and
was thrown into confusion and obliged to retire. The 1st Wisconsin was
advanced to its place and with the assistance of artillery held the position until
all the artillery horses were killed or unmanageable. The regiments of the
brigade were ordered to hold the ground while the guns were withdrawn. About
this time the 1st Wisconsin made a dash and captured the flag of the 1st Tennes-
see. Protected by the fire of other regiments, the 1st Wisconsin took away from
the field every gun and caisson by hand. Their flag was riddled by balls and
flag staff severed in two places. All the color guard but three were killed or
wounded. The regiment received the thanks of Indiana for rescuing the battery
which belonged to that state, and a present of a full complement of colors in
recognition of its bravery.

Miles was reported mortally wounded. His father went down for his body,
but saved his life hy careful nursing. He removed him to the Louisville hospital,
and on November 15 he was discharged as pennanently disabled. Even then
the chances of his reaching home alive seemed about even, but by easy stages,
and laying over a day or two for rest in different places, his father brought him
through. The ball entered his left shoulder, passed through the upper portion
of his lung and came out close by the spine. He has never fully recovered from

the effects. He remained at home and in the fall of 1863 removed with his father
to Lyle, Minn.

A part of the succeeding- year, as his health became firmer, was spent in com-
mencing a higher education, but he was chiefly indebted for his admirable fund
of information and terse use of the English language to his persistent habit of
reading, formed in his boyhood and kept up after the war. He was not satisfied
to study wliile others were fighting, and on September 2, 1864, re-enlisted in Com-
pany K, 4th Minnesota Infantry. He joined the regiment in season to take part
in the terrific fight at Altoona, where Corse "held the fort" on Sherman's signals,
notwithstanding his great loss of men and the individual loss of an ear and a
cheek bone.

He was am.ong the sixty thousand selected for the march to the sea. After
resting at Savannah more than a month, the still longer march north commenced
in February. This was a far niore arduous task. The spring rains rendered it
necessary to corduroy all roads for the passage of baggage and artillery and fre-
quently rendered the swollen rivers impassable, and Joe Johnston, at least second
in ability of Confederate generals, commanded the enemy and delivered a blow
at this wing or the other at evei-y opportunity. Then followed the surrender of
the Confederate armies, the grand review at Washington, and the mustering out,
which occun'ed July 19, 1865.

Mr. Trowbridge held the oifices of town clerk, town treasurer and chairman of
the board of supervisors in the town of Lyle, and in 1877 was elected county com-
missioner from the southwest district. He held this oifice for three years, and
was quite instrumental in the erection of the court house. The people voted not
to issue bonds for that pui-pose, and as the records were unsafe under existing
conditions he with others wisely disregarded present popularity, and the outcries
of the penny wise and pound foolish, and voted to raise the necessary amount by
taxation, distributed over three years time. In the fall of 1880 the court house
was so far advanced as to show it was an excellent bargain for the money and he
was promoted to the office of register of deeds of Mower coiuity, which he held
by successive elections for six years. He proved an efficient and acceptable
officer. During tliis period he became captain of Company G, 2d Regiment,
Minnesota National Guard, and brought the company up in numbers and effi-
ciency. He realized the importance of such organizations for the preservation
of order and as a preparation for defense, and enjoyed the esteem and confidence
of the company.

In the spring of 1887 Captain Trowbridge was employed to get up a set of
abstract books at Superior, Wis. His experience as register of deeds fitted him
for this work and gave him the reputation that secured him the jjosition. A
year and a half later he moved to Portland, Ore., where he accepted a position
with the Pacific Title and Trust Company, with which he has since been identi-
fied. Captain Trowbridge has a fine heme on Portland Heights, a tliousand feet
above sea level, which commands a beautiful view of the city and harbor, with
Mounts Hood and Adams in the distance.
