Theodore M. Trowbridge was brought up on his father's farm in Neiy Fairfield,
Conn. In the spring of 1865 he went to New Milford, Conn., where he was
engaged in the carriage painting business about ten years. He then went to work
as a toolmaker in the ivory button factory of Bostwick Bros., and when that
firm removed to Bridgeport, Conn., in 1884 he went with them and continued in
the same position until the business was sold to Massachusetts parties. He then
went to Stratford, Conn., where he lived about ten years, working for five years
at carriage painting there and then five years in Bridgeport. He moved his
family to that city in April, 1907, and at the present time is employed at the
factory of the American & British Manufacturing Company, manufacturers of
Ordnance, in Bridgeport.

623. Capt. Charles Burr Trowbridge (Ephraim B.^ - , Ahraham'^^^, John}''*,
SamueP", Samuel'"'*, ^yilliam''^'", Thomas"^). born October 23, 1837, in Buffalo,
N. Y. ; resides at tlie National Soldiers' Home in Milwaukee, Wis. ; married
June 18, 1869, in Hannibal, Mo., Anna Hazzard Taft Cottrell, daughter of
Simon Smith and Amy Gardner (Eimis) Cottrell, born July 12, 1843, in
Narragansett, R. I. She resides in Minneapolis, Minn.

Cliarles B. Trowbridge received his early education in the grammar and high
schools in his native city. At the age of seventeen he was sent to the academy at
East Bloomfield, N. Y., from which he was graduated three years later. Lie then
became bookkeeper for a commission house in Buffalo. This proved too con-
fining, and it was finally decided that he should learn a trade. He took naturally
to painting, and was soon at work learning that trade. He served an apprentice-
ship of about two years with E. G. Buchanan and then went to New Orleans to
work on boat work. This was in 1859. He remained there that winter, return-
ing to Buffalo in the early spring of 1860. He remained there until after the
election of President Lincoln, w-hen he returned to New Orleans and resumed



3(52 TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY

work on boat painting. After the Louisiana legislature passed the ordinance of
secession, he decided to return to the North. The embargo on all persons trying
to leave was very strict, but he finally made his escape in the coal hole of the old
steamboat Olive Branch, which carried him to St. Louis, aud from there he
returned to his home in Buffalo.

About the time of his arrival home the 21st New York Infantry was being
organized and he at once offered to enlist, but he was rejected by the surgeon as
lacking in physical ability. He remained in Buffalo, however, until July, 1862,
when he again offered himself as a volunteer and was accepted. He enlisted for
the term of three years, or during the war, and was enrolled at Buffalo July 31,
1862, in Company E, 116th New York Infantry. His regiment was ordered to
the front, and he soon found himself again in New Orleans with his regiment.
They wintered at Baton Rouge and early in the spring of 1863 were ordered to
Port Hudson under Gen. N. P. Banks. He was in the fight at Plains Store, near
Port Hudson, on May 9, 1863, and in the two assaults on the fort proper on
May 21 and June 14. He later participated in the battle of Donelsonville.
With the exception of a few skirmishes, this was the end of their engagements
for that year. He was at this time offered, and he accepted, a commission as
lieutenant in a colored regiment, which was being organized by the adjutant of
his regiment, and of which the latter was made colonel. While acting as
enlisting officer for this regiment, he had an e.^citing experience with a squad of
Confederates and only escaped on account of the sujierior speed of his horse.
He then resigned his commission as lieutenant aiid returned to his old regiment.
In the spring of 1864 he was in the army of the Department of the Gulf and was
in the disastrous raid up the Red river, and was engaged in the battle of Sabine
Cross Roads, Pleasant Hill and Cane River, which were the principal battles of
that campaigii. His regiment was then transferred to Virginia, and was with
General Sheridan at the battles of Winchester and Cedar Creek. He later
received his discharge at Fort Porter, Buffalo, June 28, 1865, having partici-
pated in nine battles, besides a number of skirmishes. He was never excusetl
from duty on account of sickness but one day during his two years and ten
months of service.

Mr. Trowbridge resided in Buffalo until 1867, when he went with the tide of
emigration towards the South. He passed the winter at Quincy, 111., and the
following spring went down the river twenty-five miles to Hannibal, Mo. He
there met his future wife, who at that time was a mission teacher in the free
colored schools of Missouri. They resided in Hannibal only about two years after
their marriage, when, because of the failure of Mrs. Trowbridge's health, they
were advised to go North, which they did, going at once to Mankato, Minn., where
they lived until about 1895, when tliey came to Minneapolis, Minn. In May,
1900, he removed to Anoka, Minn., seventeen miles from Minneapolis, where he
began poultry raising on a large scale. He continued in that business until a
few years ago, when he entered the National Soldiers' Home in Milwaukee, Wis.
He has been captain of a company at the home for the past two years and still
holds that position, with a prospect of its indefinite continuance. Captain
Trowbridge voted for Stephen A. Douglas in 1860 and has been a consistent
Democrat ever since. He has never allied himself with any church denomination,
but has always believed in and practiced the Golden Rule.
