fourteen he began work in a saw and grist mill, an occupation which he followed
for twenty-eight years. He tlien bouglit the Weller farm, now occupied by his
youngest son at Weller's bridge in Eoxbury. He gradually added to his farm
until he owned two hundred acres. Much of this land he devoted to general
farming, the remainder being used for grazing cattle, the raising and fattening
of which he made a specialty. He made many changes for the better in the
homestead, built in 1790, enlarging and remodeling the buildings.

Mr. Trowbridge was one of tlie leading farmers of his day, dealing largely in
grain and tobacco, and raising cattle, both for the market and teaming. He was
regarded as one of the most enterprising and successful men in that part of the
county. He made an ample fortune as a progressive and successful farmer, and
filled a prominent position in the community. He was a Democrat in politics
and was elected on tliat ticket to a number of town offices, such as selectman and
a member of the board of relief. He served on the grand jury in 1851 and was
elected town agent in 1865.
