261. Minor Thowbeidge (Seth'^'''^, James^-'-^, DanieP^", J ames^"^ , William'-'"',

Minor Trowbridge came in childhood with his father to New York. He lived
in Tully until a little over a year after his marriage. On February 4, 1810, he
left there for that part of Ontario county later set oif as Wayne county. He and
his wife and babe made the journey on an ox-sled. On his arrival in his new
home he built a log cabin, using for a time blanlvets in place of doors. He was
a man of untiring energy, and cleared and farmed two hundred acres, although
in those days there was no machinery for uprooting trees or for sowing or
harvesting grain. There were no canals or railroads, for transportation and the
nearest market was Albany. He made frequent journeys there in his springless
lumber wagon. He also visited his brothers in other parts of the state and in
Ohio in the same conveyance. His farm was three miles from [ the village of
Newark, of which he was one of the first settlers and which was in that part
of the county which became the town of Arcadia. He resided there the
remainder of his life, a period of sixty-six years.

Mr. Trowbridge was converted to Christ in the year 1812 and immediately
comieeted himself with the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he served for
many years in various official relations, being a class- leader for more, than thirty
years. He was one of the first Methodists formed into a class in the town, and
one of the original members of the Methodist church in Newark. He was
identified with this church for sixty-four years, and was zealous in all good
works. As a citizen, neighbor and Christian he commanded the respect and
confidence of all who knew him.

Morganville, Kan.; married , 1817?, in Preble, N. Y., Lydia Russell,

bom , 1800, in Preble; died , 18G2, in Greeley, Iowa.

John Trowbridge came in childhood with his parents to New York. He
settled after his marriage in Preble, N. Y., and engaged in farming. In 1833 he
followed his elder brother to Solon, Ohio, where he was engaged in farming for
twenty years. In 1854 he again took up his journey westward, and with some of
his children made his home near Greeley in Elli township, Delaware county,
Iowa. After the death of his wife, in 1862, he went to live with his son P. D.
Trowbridge in Manchester, Iowa, where he lived until late in life. His old age
was passed in the homes of several of his daughters, and he died at the home of
his youngest daughter in Morganville, Kan.

"His life had bei'n the busy, ju'actical life of the common American citizen — a
life which enters into the warp and woof of our civilization and elevates it. For
eighty .years he had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, cherishing
an abiding faith in the virtues of the Christian religion. His life will long
remain in the remembrance of all who knew him, as an incentive to holy living
and an impetus toward building up a character which shall become a portion of
the social wealth."

210 TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY

"The fouutry was new in southern Onondaga county ; few settlers, and help was
scarce, and self reliance was necessary for existence. The family had to have a new
house, and the lumber was got out winters. Milo and his father, Seth, went often with-
out shoes, and wore cloth or home made coverings, and many times when their feet were
cold they would sit down in the woods and wrap them in their long tail coats to warm
them. This experience was not altogether new with Seth, because he had been a Revo-
lutionary soldier and knew something about hardship.

"Money being scarce, Milo found employment summers with a Canadian lumber com-
pany on the St. Lawrence river, rafting logs down the famous rapids. One season, when
he was about twenty-five years old, for some rea.son the last raft for that year was
several days late in making a start. The river was unusually high and most of the men
refused to ride the logs through the rapids. The company called for men, and finally
nine were on hand for the undertaking. Milo being a large man, and having had exper-
ience, was given charge of the float and took liis position on the front end with a good
supply of pike-poles. It was a large raft and only nine men aboard. A large crowd
came to see it off. It was let loose, and the current soon had it under wa.v. When it
was twenty or thirty rods from the shore, Milo saw all his men except one had deserted
and were swimming for the shore. They were as a rule Canada-French. Only one man
was now with him. a plucky little Frenchman. The company never expected the raft
to go through after the men left it, but it did. It was the first time such an amount
of logs ever went down in charge of two men. and no doubt the last. The -ride was very
exciting and he thought on several occasions the raft was going onto the rocks. For this
extraordinary duty the company gave him and the Frenchman 37 cents each. This com-
pany paid him S dollars per month."*
