"for the war." His name appears on a pay abstract in Lieut.-col. Ebenezer
Sprout's 12th Regiment, Massachusetts Line, for three months' service in 1780.
His name appears as sergeant on a muster-roll of Capt. Luke Hitchcock's com-
pany, 1st Massachusetts Regiment, Col. Joseph Vose, for June, 1780. He con-
tinued to serve in that company the two following years.

Sergeant Trowbridge describes his war service in his application for a pension
(which was granted) as follows: "I served as a private soldier and sergeant
employed in the war of the Revolution on the Continental establishment; and
after serving under short enlistments most of the time from the year 1775 to the
year 1778 or 1779, I then enlisted, during the war, into a company commanded
by Capt. Luke Hitchcock in Colonel Sprout's regiment in the Massachusetts
Line, and that said company was afterward tranferred to the 1st Regiment in
said Line commanded by Col. Joseph Vose. I continued in said service in said
company until the ninth day of June in the year 1783, when I was honorably
discharged by General Washington, and received a written discharge. I was in
the battle of Stillwater and the battle of Yorktown. I received a wound in the
Indian War, while in a detachment under Capt. William Eaton, and I was put
on the i^ension list."

After the war he settled in Great Barrington, Mass., where he lived until 1809.
In that year he removed to Lebanon, N. H., where he resided the remainder of his
life. He was probably the James Trowbridge who served in the War of 1812,
and enlisted from Hanover, N. H., September 28, 1814, for sixty days' seiwice in
Capt. 'William Courson's company. Except for the years passed in the army, he

toga, and Port George, where he was taken prisoner October 11, 1780. He was
carried to Canada, where he was a prisoner about two years. He was then

In his application for a pension Sergeant Trowbridg-e details his war service
as follows: "In the year 1777, on the 2d day of January, I engaged in a regiment
commanded by Col. Setli Warner, for 'during the war.' I fought, and served my
country faithfully through the war to the end, without any impeachment, through
thick and thin, cold, wet and dry, sometimes half naked and half star\-ed, often
glad to get raw hides to sew on our feet in cold winter weather to keep them from
freezing. When on duty or sentry, I suffered the fatigues and hardships of a
long war, two years in captivity, taken at Fort George, on Lake George, and
when exchanged, I, with pleasure, returned to duty again, and sensed to the end
of the war, and got an honourable discharge from General Washington, specify-
ing in it that I was entitled to the badges of honour for my faithful service to
my counti"y, it being six years and seven months; after I got from the war I
got married and lived in Salisbury in Connecticut, but not getting any pay for
the last part of the war we all had to come home poor."*

His widow in her pension apiJication recited the following narrative: "I wag
taken a prisoner with my husband and so kept over two years, in the time of the
Revolution. My mother was opposed to my marriage; my father dead.
Trowbridge stole me away and married me with little form and in haste — my
brother. Captain Frasier, belonged to the British army, and my uncle was General
Frasier, killed at the Battle of Saratoga. This Captain Frasier was in the habit
of visiting me and happened to be there when my husband and I came back
after the reconciliation with my mother, which was two or three weeks after the
marriage. The next night Captain Frasier came with some men and took us both
prisoners and carried us to Montreal. Mr. Trowbridge was a great singer of
songs, and knew many adapted to the times and our situation, and used to sing
them in Montreal, for which he was frequently imprisoned, when Captain Frasier
was not there; but as soon as he found it out he was released through his
influence on my account, as I insisted on and was permitted to share his close

After the war Stephen Trowbridge engaged in farming. He lived for a time
in Salisbury, Conn., and then removed to Vermont and settled on a farm in tJie
town of Williston. Wliile clearing up land he was injured by a rolling log, and
had to give up his farm. He was then engaged in mercantile business for several
j'ears in Sullivan. Oneida county, N. Y. He left his family in that town and
went to Canada, where he was in business for several years. In 1817 he removed
to Berkshire, Vt., where he resided the remainder of his life.

Seth Trowbridge came with his older brothers to Sheffield, Mass. He like
them served in the Revolution. He enlisted for three years from Sheffield in
October, 1781, in Capt. Nathan Dick's company. Col. Michael Jackson's regiment,
Massachusetts Line. He went from Sheffield to West Point, N. Y., and from

then came back to West Point. From there he went with his regiment to Morris-
town, N. J., and then returned to West Point, where he remained until he was
discharged in February, 1783.t

After the war he was engaged for several years in farming in Sheffield. In
1787 he removed to the town of Williston, Vt. He moved his family to Florida,
N. Y., about 1794, and six years later to Preble, N. Y. His farm lay on the
present Tvilly line and adjoined that of his brother Samuel. He and his wife
were members of the Presbyterian church in Preble.

"Once on a time there was a string of Trowbridge famis about a mile long
one-half mile south from Tully village, in the town of Preble, connnencing with
William and his family of boys on the north ; Milo, my father, next ; Uncle
James next; and Uncle Hiram with his boys in the old, big red house of
Grandfather Seth; next was Uncle Samuel, brother of Seth. All of these were
farmers brought up to the trade of farming, and it was a real Trowbridge neigh-
borhood. But oh, how changed it now is! I am the only Trowbridge living in
the two towns; all have pased away, or wandered off to the Far West. Grand-
father Seth was a strong, enterjirising Yankee. His wife was of Dutch descent,
intelligent and hardy. Most of their seven sons were six-footers, and the six
daughters were as fine-looking girls as could be found round about.":^
