He served three years and three mouths in the army, being at the "cleaning up"
of twenty-three battles and one hundred nineteen days under fire, winning the
highest praise from the oificers of the connnand. He was mustered out July 27,
1864. He delivered the oration at Decatur on Decoration Day, 1869.

Doctor Trowbridge was the chief organizer and one of the founders in 185.3
of the Macon County Medical Society. He was offered the office of its president,
which he declined, but accepted that of its secretary and treasurer. He joined
the American Medical Association in 1854. He was elected a member of the
Illinois State Medical Society in 1854; was elected its second vice-president in
1859 ; was appointed chairman of its committee on the practice of medicine in
1860; and was the originator of the medical practice act of the state of Illinois.
In 1866 he was elected first vice-president, and filled the oflice of president, owing
to the absence of that oificer. In 1867 he was appointed chairman of its com-
mittee to memorialize the legislature to pass laws prohibiting incompetent
persons from practicing medicine and to grant dissecting privileges to medical
men. In 1868 he was elected president.

Doctor Trowbridge was made a Mason on May 5, 1850, in Macon Lodge, No.
8, at Decatur, 111., and before June 24 of that year he was raised to the degree of
Master Mason. In 1855 a chapter of Royal Arch Masons was established in
Decatur, and he was one of the first three persons exalted to the Royal Arch
degree in Macon Chapter, No. 21. In June following he was elected high priest
of the chapter, and at the convocation of the grand chapter of the state at Jack-
sonville in September of the same year he was elected grand scribe, and the
following year at Springfield was chosen grand king. This office entitled him
to membership, by delegation, in the General Grand Chapter of the United States,
held that year at Hartford, Conn., but he could not well leave his practice, and
sent a deputy.

Doctor Trowbridge was appointed consul at Vera Cruz, Mexico, on April 19.
1869. On July 11 of that year he entered upon his official duties as consul.
This was soon after the withdrawal of Maximilian's forces, which had attempted
to establish an empire in Me.xieo, just at the close of the Civil War, and a treaty
between the United States and Mexico was just then coming into force. Mexico
had cut off all diplomatic and consular relations with Franco, England and
Spain, and the United States government had been asked to take charge of the
archives, and to transact the consular services of these countries, through the
U. S. consulate at Vera Cruz. In this manner Doctor Trowbridge acted in the
capacity of French, English and Sjianish consul for many years, to the perfect
satisfaction of these countries. Several of his consular reports to the State
Department were published in the City of Mexico, by orders from Washington.
He was beloved and respected by all who knew him, and upon his retirement from
the consulate at Vera Cruz, after thirteen years of arduous labors, upon the

appointment of Hon. E. H. Eodgers as consul, who died of yellow fever thirteen
days after his arrival in Vera Cruz, the citizens without distinction, petitioned
the United States government to re-appoiut him. Doctor Trowbridge's
researches, studies, and observations upon yellow fever were very extensive, some
of them being published in Mexico, while others were sent to Washington in his
diplomatic correspondence.

On September 2, 1S86, he sailed with his family from Vera Cruz, and arrived
at Los Angeles, Cal., via New Orleans, October 12. After three months' resi-
dence there he removed to San Francisco, where he remained one year. He
then entered into partnership with Dr. J. W. Hostetler at Napa, Cal., and in
February, 1887, removed his family to that place, and continued there until
his death.

Joseph B. Trowbridge came to Ohio in 1818 with his parents, who located in
Greene township, on the east fork of Taylor's creek, Hamilton county, and there
he also settled on a farm. At this time the religious reformation under B. W.
Stone and co-laborers was waking up the people, and he, having been raised a
strict Calvinist-Presbyterian, got into several religious controversies, especially
witli Father Shumaker. and always came oft' second best. He became satisfied
that the Bible only would do to tie up to as infallible, and, dropping all his creed
ideas, he began to study the Scriptures with an interest he had not hitherto
known; and from his studies ho learned how to become a Cliristian and sub-
mitted himself to the Lord, fully determined to follow the teachings of the
Scriptures. He soon became an exhorter and in a few years was ordained an
evangelist. His first labors were in the western part of Hamilton county, Ohio,
and in Boone county, Ky. The church, now known as White Oak Church, was
founded by him. He also preached for the Carthage, Mount Pleasant, Cummins-
ville and Miamitown congregations; also in many places in Indiana, where the
greater part of the last forty-three years of his life were spent. Many are there

county, Ohio, Eliza Lyon, daughter of Simeon and Hannah (Sherrin) Lyon, bom
Jnne 3, lS04, in Mendham; died May 18,' 1884, in Fayette.

Abner Trowbridge came in 1808 with his mother and maternal grandfather,
William Denman, to what was known as the Owl Creek valley, in what is now
Chester township. Morrow county, Ohio. That part of the country was the
Eldorado of the "Great West," as it was then known, and was a very rich and
productive locality. He was taken into the home of his grandfather Denman and
brought xxx> by him. He had no time for school, and, even if he had had, there
was no school for him to attend, as it was many years after that before a school
was established near there. He grew to manhood surrounded on all sides by
environments that called for physical rather than mental development. The
whole country around was densely timbered and required an immense amount of
hard work to clear up so that the rich, virgin soil could be cultivated, and every
hand, no matter how small, of Mr. Denman's family had to be put to work.
Being naturally industrious, he early learned almost every kind of mechanical
work. He learned the cooper's trade and it was said, that when Abner Trow-
bridge made a barrel, neither wind nor water could get out when in, nor get in
when out; and of the thousands of barrels which he made none ever came back
to be reconstructed. He was a conscientious workman in whatever he did and
his business watchword was, "Be honest."

He became a wagon-maker and built many of them at a time when six-horse
wagons were in great demand, and when very few orders were placed for less than
foiir-horse wagons; but he also built light one-horse buggies and other vehicles.
He followed carpentering, and was a contractor for many large (at that time)
buildings and flour mills of the largest size. He was a good superintendent of
construction and was never happier than when building some large structure.
There was a saying about his buildings, that the wind might roll them over, but
could never blow them down or to pieces. He was in the carpenter business for
many years and had many men in his employ. ■ He was. always- kind to his
employes, and many warm attachments grew out of that business. In 1838 and
the early part of 1839 he built a water-power sawmill in Middlebury township,
Knox county, and retired from the carpenter business. He started his mill in
February, 1839, and continued to run it until 1850, when he sold out. In
September, 1851, he removed to the northwestern part of Ohio, where he bought
eighty acres of dense woodland in Williams county, near the village of West
Unity. Four years later he sold that, and in August, 1855, bought eighty acres
in Gorham township, Fulton county, close to the site of the present city of
Fayette, where he resided the remainder of his life.

Abner Trowbridge was a born military man and took great interest in military
affairs. He was commissioned ensign of the Second Company, 2d Regiment,

• Now Morrow.

Ohio state troops, August 10, 1824 ; was promoted lieutenant October 9, 1826 ;
and commissioned lieutenant colonel of that regiment June 1, 1830. He was a
good commander, and, being a tall, straight, well-proportioned man, he made a
fine-looking officer. He and his brothers were what were called Jackson Demo-
crats in politics. Their church afKliations were with the Old Close Communion
Baptist Church. Colonel Trowbridge was a manly man, a man of invincible
integrity, strictly honest, kind-hearted and generous. He was kind to his family,
a good husband, and his home was always a sunshiny place.

township. Morrow county, Ohio, and early in life commenced helping to clear the
farm in the rich Owl Creek valley. By the time he had arrived at the age of
twenty-one, he had succeeded in learning the cabinet trade and was a fine work-
man. He settled after his marriage in Chester township, and lived there until
1848. He then removed to Eichland township, Steuben county, Ind., where he
continued to work at his trade. After his second marriage he settled in Butler,
De Kalb county, Ind. After the death of his second wife, he gave up business
and lived among his children until the .year 1878, when he made his permanent
home with his eldest daughter in Waterloo, Ind., where he died a few months
later. In polities he was a Democrat and in religion he was an "Old School
Baptist." He was a very kind-hearted man and a strictly honest one, and gave
his very large family all the advantages his means permitted.
