Seymour Trowbridge and his wife lived near their childhood's home until
September, 1835, when they emigrated to Ohio and settled near Solon in Cuya-
hoga county. When they first settled there the surrounding country was a wilder-
ness, and on the farm of 200 acres which they bought not a tree had been cut.
"The farm was so dense a forest that Mr. Trowbridge was compelled to call his
Tincle to his assistance to locate his farm. They spent nearly one day and
finally found it by a line of blazed trees made by the surveyors. Here he built
his log house and felled the mighty forest with his strong and sturdy arm, until
he had cleared it to raise crops for himself and young wife." He. lived there
until April, 1863, when he sold his farm and removed to Brooklyn village, now
included in the limits of tlie city of Cleveland. He purchased a farm near the
Calvin Institute on Pearl street, and lived in the house near the comer of Trow-
bridge avenue which is now standing. He lived there four years, and then he
sold his farm and purchased the residence at the corner of Pearl street and
Archwood avenue where he lived until he died. , ■ ■

Mr. Trowbridge was progressive and was for many years actively ' engaged in
enterprises having for their object the improvement of the incorporated village of
Brooklyn. He was several times elected to positions of trust, serving as mayor
of Brooldyn village for two terms, township tiiistee, etc., positions he always
filled to tlie satisfaction of the people and honor to himself. He was one of the
organizers of the Brooklyn Street Railroad Company, and was its only president
until the purchase of the same by Hon. Tom L. Johnson, the deal being
negotiated by Mr. Trowbridge.

He and his wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, with which
Mr. Trowbridge united in 1836, ever since which time he had been a consistent
member and had served on its official board for a number of years. He and his
wife were in all probability the oldest married couple in Cuyahoga county, having
celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary at their home on Pearl street the
February preceding his death.

to their spiritual welfare. He was promoted August 24, 1864, to be second
lieutenant of Company L, 1st Wisconsin Heavy Artillery, but, on account of
failing health, he only served with that command for three months and was

of his daughters resided at that time. In 1888 he decided to try the South for
the sake of his health, and he located in Lawtey, Fla. He died while on a visit
