ISOij. In 1798 he was chosen one of a committee "to inspect and regulate the
schools" and continued a member of it for several years. He was representative
to the Massachusetts General Court for eleven years, 1809-13 and 1816-21. In
1820 he was a delegate to the Massachusetts state convention.

For twenty-five years he was town treasurer, halving been first elected to that
office in 1799. Up to 1822 tlie town treasurer had not been required to furnish
bonds, but in the spring of that year Captain Trowbridge proposed to the town
tliat the treasurer should be required to furnish sureties, adding, that he would
hold the office one more year, cheerfully give such bonds and thus establish a
precedent; and tlie town so voted. His record as treasurer shows his integrity
of character and the trust placed in his judgment by his fellow townsmen. He
was also a director of the bank in Cambridge. He was one of the associates of
the Eev. David Kellogg in the building of Framingham Academy, organized in
the spring of 1792, of which he was a trustee for twenty years and to which he
left by his will $500 as a fund in aid of Framingham boys preparing for college,
the interest of which has since been applied agreeable to the directions of the
donor. He was held in general esteem and confidence, and his death closed a life
of usefulness.

The Trowbridge tomb (see plate) is located in the old burying-ground, now
known as Church Hill cemetery, in Framingham and was erected in 1810 by
Capt. John Trowbridge (No. 1029) and Lieut. Joshua Trowbridge (No. 1030),
and their remains lie within it.

TIIOWBRIDGE GENEALOGY 529

Luther Trowbridge continued in the service throughout the war. On January
1, 1777, he was commissioned second lieutenant of the 9th Company, commanded
by Lieut. Jonas Parl^er, Gth Middlesex County liegiment, Col. Ichabod Alden,
Massachusetts militia, and joined Washington's army on the Hudson. This
regiment became the 7th in the Massachusetts Line. He was in the army of
General Gates at the defeat and surrender of General Burgoyne. His marriage
occurred early in the spring of 1778, and after that event he rejoined his regi-
ment, which was stationed at Fort Herkimer and later at Cherry Valley.
Colonel Alden was in command at the latter place and was killed in the assault
on it by the Lidians and Tories under Butler and Brant on .September 10, 1778.

Lieut. -col. John Brooks was placed in command of the regiment and Lieutenant
Trowbridge continued to serve under him until the close of the war.* He was
promoted July 5, 1779, and conunissioned first lieutenant September 29, 1779, and
served with General Sullivan in his expeditions against the Indians in Western
New York after the massacre of Wyoming. He was with his regiment through-
out the year 1780, during the last four months of which he was adjutant on
Colonel Brooks' staff. The regiment was at Camp Totoway in October and
November and Camp Hutts in December, and went into winter quarters at New
Windsor, General Washington's headquarters. During the year 1781 he was on
command at West Point. He was stationed at Peokskill from July to September.

"Wliile Lieutenant Trowbridge was at West Point, his wife, then a youtliful
matron, paid him a visit, while General Washington was at his headquarters at
Newburgh, and she recalled in later years the pleasant manner in which that
distinguished soldier served his table with his battered camp equipage, polished
until, he claimed, it might pass for silver." The regiment went into winter
quarters at York JIutts in December. On February 5, 1782, Lieutenant Trow-
bridge received a furlough permitting him a visit of several weeks at his home
in Albany. He then returned to his regiment and was stationed at West Point
until midsummer. He was in the action at Croton river on October 17, 1782.
He was commissioned quartermaster of the 1st Massachusetts Brigade on
November 12, 1782. He fulfilled his duties at the camp at New Windsor until
the sununer of 1783, when he was furloughed. On October 10, 1783, he was
commissioned captain by brevet in the TI. S. army.

At the close of the war Captain Trowbridge settled in Albany, like all Conti-
nental soldiers, poor in purse but rich in the satisfaction of having done their
part in the great struggle for independence. Here he was engaged in various
enterprises and was interested in some land purchases. He held various offices
by appointment of the governor and council, and numbered among his personal
friends many of the public men of the time ; among whom may be mentioned :
Mr. Van Rensselaer — the patroon — for whom his son Stephen was named,
Elkanah Watson, Abraham Van Vecten and Chancellor Kent. The latter, in
after years meeting with Mr. C. C. Trowbridge, referred with much pleasure,
ajiparently, to his friendship with the latter's father and entertained him with
stories of hunting expeditions on Patroon creek, where Captain Trowbridge won
some reputation with a little gun, carved in the stock in the shape of a dog's
head, which had been presented to him by a French officer during some one of his
campaigns. This gxni is still in the possession of his family. For some time
previous to his death Captain Trovpbridge was clerk of the Board of Onondaga
Commissioners, appointed to settle the disputed claims to land in the military
tract of the state of New York.

Joseph Trowbridge appears not to have remained on his father's farm in New
Hampshire and was working on a farm in Marlborough, Mass., at the time of
his marriage. So young was he at that time, that it was deemed necessary, for
him to have a guardian, and he chose John Stow of ilarlborough.t He con-
tinued farming thus until he came of age, when he bought a farm on which
he lived until his death. He was loiown as "Lieutenant" and was styled
"gentleman" at the settlement of his estate.

1035. WiLLARD Trowbridge (James^''^^ Daniel""'\ James'0'>\ James'"'"',
Thomas'^), born September 15, 1767, in Pomf ret, Conn. ; died December 7, 1837,
in Delta, Ohio ; married* January — , 1791, in Ashford, Conn., Mehitable Sum-
ner, daughter of Capt. Jolm and Mehitable (Perry) Sumner, bom April 29, 1769,
in Ashford; died September — , 1838, in Delta.

Willard Trowbridge settled after his marriage near his father-in-law in Ash-
ford, Conn., the town adjoining his native place, and engaged in farming. In
1802 he removed with his family to Edinburgh, Saratoga county, N. Y., where
his father-in-law. Captain Sumner, had bought seven farms, one for each of his
children, soon after the organization of that town in 1801. His house, built
about 1802, stands on the west side of tlie highway, two and a half miles south
of Edinburgh and about the same distance north of Northampton post ofEce.f

In the summer of 1837, with his wife, two youngest sons and youngest daugh-
ter, he followed his two oldest sons to Ohio. The latter had settled about three
years previously in the wilderness of the valley of the Maumee, in what is now
Delta, York township, Fulton county, where they had taken up a large tract
of land. Their father took up 80 acres of woodland with a log house on it and
about three acres of it ''girdled." The crevices between the logs of the house
were "chinked," the floor was made of slabs, and a few logs cut from one end
formed a fireplace. He had accomplished but little in clearing his farm before
he was killed by a falling tree. The tree he had felled lodged in another and,
in extricating the tangle, it is supposed, a sapling whijiped around and struck
him on the temple, killing him instantly. He was found, sitting up at the foot
of a tree, dead, with no other mark upon him.

Willard Trowbridge imited with the Northampton and Edinburgh Presbyterian
church about 1812 and continued one of its members until 1832, when he joined
the Edinburgh Methodist Episcopal church, continuing in that connection until
his removal to Ohio, where he was a member of the church of the same
denomination.
