improvements on the church projx^rty have been brought about through his effort*
and contributions. He was always present at the services while his health per-
mitted, and was a great favorite with the young folks. To them he was always
Father Trowbridge. Not only the home churches but othA- religious organiza-
tions also will rememl)er his generosity.

"He never filled a jiublic oifice, but had the people called, there would have been
a service that would cause this small sphere in which we live to wonder. The
demand or call of a cabal could never move him to undertake a public position.
It would have to come from the ]>eople. He was a member of no society and was
satisfied to belong to tlie brotherhood of man. His ways were ways of pleasant-
ness and his paths were peace. His faith was a simple faith, and a great poet has
said that that is greater than Norman blood. He was a genuine Yanlsee. He was
born one and lived one. No higher tribute can be paid to his jiatriotism than
that. There was joy to him, whenever on our national holiday he caused the stars
and stripes to be run up the flag pole in front of his residence, but there was
greater satisfaction to him to go back into his house and feel that the flag was
there. He had feelings for his fellow men, respected their opinions, and was
interested in their welfare and happiness."

The funeral of Mr. Trowbridge was hold from the ^Vliitinsville Methodist
Episcopal church, and rich and poor, and all creeds and denominations, were in



tlie large congregation that gatJiered for the final ceremony over the body of
one who had lived the life 'of an ideal citizen. The services were in charge of the
jjastor. Rev. Wesley Wiggin, and he was assisted by Rev. John R. Thurston,
pastor of the Congregational church, and* Rev. T. M. Huston, pastor of the
United Presbyterian church. Rev. Sir. Wiggin delivered the eulogy. He
sketched the life of Mr. Trowbridge, and told simply, but touchingly, some of the
details of his life of more than fifty years in Wliitiusville, of his fidelity in
business relations, of his ideal home life, and of his generosity to the churches.*
