whenever the regular minister was not present, growing into such favor that
they chose him to minister to them regularly. In addition to his work at the
church, he would have some place for afternoon preaching, and in this way he
carried on an extensive missionary work. He was a constant student of the
Word of God, and taking his Testament to the field he woiild search the Scrip-
tures while resting his horses. No time was idled away. When he had a
moment, while waiting for his meals or of an evening, lie had a book or paper
and was reading. Thus he prepared himself for his Sunday preaching.

The first ten years of his ministry were spent without remuneration, and he
labored with his hands to support his family. He preached in barns, school-
houses and dwellings — anywhere he could find an opening to sound the Gospel
call. He preached the first sermon that was delivered in the village, now city, of
Wenona, the meeting being held in the Illinois Central railroad depot. In 1850
a cooperation was formed among the Christians of ^Marshall. LaSalle, Woodford
and Livingston counties for the extension of Christ within their borders.
Brother Trowbridge was chosen president of this association for seven consecutive
years, and served several times later in the same office. This work took him
away from home to visit among the people wherever work was to be done.
Associated with him in this work were the three Houstons, Washington, John Q.


and Jefferson, William Thompson, U. H. Watson, Walter Boles, M. D. Sharpless,
Festus Burg, Joseph Johnson, E. B. Nevell, D. Ledgerwood, John McCleary,
George W. Minier and B. Carter. The churches in eouperation and organized
by it were : Pattonsburg, Ancona, Osage. Pontiac, Long Point, Amity, Scattering
Point, Diamond Creek (now Dana), Nebraska (now Flanagan), Minonk, Kut-
land, Antioch (now Toluca), Washburn, Shaw's Point, Vania and Streator.
Some of the churches have ceased to exist, but the larger number are still doing
work for the Lord.

These pioneers found many bitter prejudices against their work. The sectarian
spirit was vei-y strong and many church doors were closed against them. The
religious world did not know that these preachers of the Restoration came with
a message of love and union for all of God's people. As the Savior and Apostles
were not understood by the people to whom they ministered neither were these
men. They had learned that the truth once planted would grow to a bountiful
harvest in honest and loving hearts. They were content to labor and wait.
Many of them lived to see the places where they labored so patiently occupied by
flourishing churches and the prejudices allayed. The Antioch church was
organized in a schoolliouse one mile north of the farm of llr. Trowbridge in
1862, and it was from this church, at the suggestion of Jonas Ball, Sr., that he
received his first pay for preaching. The mission at Rutland steadily grew into
an active and strong churcli, and is now the leading Protestant body of wor-
shipers. This church received very much of the attention of Brother Trow-
bridge. In 1868 it was deemed best to remove to Rutland and take full pastoral
care of the congregation. This work was continued until the winter of 1871-2,
when he moved his family to Eiireka to give the children better school privileges.
In the spring of 1872, the year that his son Thomas was graduated from Eureka
College, he again returned to the farm.

Wliile Brother Trowbridge was laboring with these churches, he traveled over
a large scope of country, giving his attention often to three or four churches.
There are very few churches within a radius of fifty miles of his home that have
not enjoyed the blessing of his ministry. His first preaching in Minonk was
done in the dining-room of Macey's hotel, then they went to the schoolliouse,
continuing there until the congregation was able to build a house of worshiji.
W^ith the assistance of Charles Roe, the Sharps, father and son. J. Carroll Shark
and others ministering to this church, it grew to be an important factor in the
city's forces. In 1879 he was again called to the ministry of this church, which
service was continued until the spring of 1882, when he again returned to the
farm. While at Minonk he and his family took the larger part of tlie burden of
the church. The ministry, the music, the janitorship and management of the
finances seemed to fall to their share.

In the autumn of 1885 he again left the fami to reside in Rutland, where he
continued to live the remainder of his days. The death of his wife the year
following caused a great cloud to come over his life. She had been to him all
that he could expect a wife to be. She had entered fully into all of his work
and bore her share of the hardships of the pioneer preacher's life. On January 1,
1887, to occupy his mind with some additional work, he began a sketch of his
life and work, and continued it quite fully until he had reached the year 1895 of
his pilgrimage, when illness caused him to relinquish the work for a season,
ex]>ecting as soon as he recovered to finish it. He never comjilcted it. so we have
but little account of the greater part of his public ministi-y. He kept no records
of his work as a preacher, so we can only estimate the additions to the Lord's
work in his service. Those who knew most of his life report many hundreds.
Rev. Mr. Trowbridge was among the few ministers who are successful farmers
or business men and enjoy a conipet«nce earned outside of the profession. He
owned a large farm having good improvements and when not at work in the


ministry followed the plow or the reaper. He gave valuable assistance to the
compiler of this genealogy by collecting the records of his brajich of the family.
"Brother Trowbridge was a minister in all the hearts of the people. The
Bible was his book of study and preaching. He contributed liberally to the
support of the gospel, and returned to tlie church, its local and missionary enter-
prises, more than he ever received for his ser^-ices. After bodily infirmities kept
him from the active ministry, he still contributed largely to the support of the
church. He educated his children so that they all took honorable places in the
church and the activities of life. He was a man of great faith. He loved his
brethren, and was a peacemaker in all his associations with men. He was a
friend to the helpless, and tJae young preacher always found in him a true friend
and wise counselor. He has left a monument more lasting than granite or
marble in the affection and esteem of his brethren. He rests from labor, and his
works will follow him."
