Judson Trowbridge until his twelfth year busied himself abovit his fathers
sawmill in his native town, where he displayed, even at that early age, an intense
love for machinery. He went with his father to Williams county in 1S51 and
to Fulton county in 1S55. He helped his father on the farm in Gorham township,
near the present city of Fayette, cutting timber, logging and doing the otlier
hard work incident to a new and heavily timbered country.

He continued his farm work after his marriage and until October, 1864, when
his iimate love for machinery prevailed over him, and he moved into the village
of Fayette to take a place in the saw and grist mill of J. O. Allen & Co. He
soon became a partner in the business, and, in looking after the two splendid
engines that furnished the power to the mills, he seemed to have found the;
occupation for which he was fitted. He ran these powerful machines, without an
accident or a break of consequence, for a period of thirty-three years — a thir<l
of a century — and by his intelligent supervision he left them, on his retirement
from the mills, in apparently as good condition as when first taken from the

In the year 1880, while still engaged with the work of the mills, Mr. Trow-
bridge helped to organize the Bank of Fayette, becoming a stockholder in it witli
a one-quarter interest. He was chosen one of its directors, and continued a
stockliolder and director until his death. He was also half-owner of the fine
bank building. His latter years were passetl quietly in his pleasant home in
Fayette. He gave valuable assistance to the compiler of this genealogy by
collecting the records of his branch of the Trowbridge family.

Mr. C. L. Allen of Fayette, his friend and partner in banking, wrote this
tribute to his memory :

"Judson Trowbridge was a citizen of which any city might justly have been
proud. He was not a member of any sectarian chnreh, for his church was the
world, and his membership and creed were to be a helpful factor in the world.
He was public-spirited, generous and kind-hearted. Possessed of a happy,
joyous disposition, he wants no better epitaph than that the world has been made
just a little happier for his having lived in it. In political faith he was born and
reared a Democrat, but during the Civil War he was what was known as a War
Democi-at, and his heart and purse were at the call of his country; and in all
political struggles since that time his politics were — his country."
