"Mr. Trowbridge had lived in the present homestead or immediate vicinity
during his entire residence in Rockford, a period of forty-two years. It has been
a home of hospitality, especially to the membership of the State Street Baptist
Church. This home may be said to bo a landmark in the history of the church,
and around its genial hearth have been held many conferences to consider various
interests of church work. Mr. Trowbridge was a gentleman of the old school.
His nature was genial ; he treated all men with courtesy. In his life the
elements were gently mixed. He was a neighbor in the true sense of the word.
His helpfulness in sickness and trouble will be remembered by many who
received his ministrations. On occasion, when no other help was available, he
would act as a volunteer nurse for the sick. He was an attendant at the State
Street Baptist Church, and a member of Nevius Post, No. 1. Department of
Illinois, Grand Army of the Kepublic. His only public office was that of
conmiissioner of the East Side Park, which ho held at the time of his death."
