died Januaiy 20, 1862, in Newton; married September 27, 1832, in Newton,
Elizabeth Fuller Bacon, daughter of Joseph and Beulah (Fuller) Bacon, bom
June 10, 1812, in Newton; died May 23, 1885, in Newton.

Otis Trowbridge lived all of His life in his native place, Newton, Mass. He
was in business there as a carpenter. He was held in high esteem by his fellow
citizens. He was a public-spirited man and had to do with many offices in
administration of town affairs. He was a selectman of the town and was elected
its representative in the legislature in 1843. He was one of the organizers of
Eliot Church in Newton in 1845 and he and his wife were among its original
members. He was chosen one of its deacons February 12, 1847, and was superin-
tendent of it-s Sunday school for thirteen years, when he resigned on account of
feeble health.

"At the time of his resignation a large concourse of people were assembled,
and he gave an interesting history of the school from the time of its organization
in July, 1845. After some general remarks on the management of the school and
the faithfulness of the teachers, Mr. Trowbridge made a series of parting remarks
to the scholars and teachers. Turning tlien to the new superintendent, Mr.
George W. Bacon, for many years a teacher, he welcomed him to the high and
noble field to which he was called. Mr. Bacon made a well-conceived and feeling
■address in reply, and spoke with much earnestness to the. teachers of the labor
that was jointly before them. Immediately on the close of his address, his son.
Master Fraiilv Bacon, a cliild of the infant school, in an artless manner, presented
to Mr. Trowbridge on behalf of the infant scholars a splendid royal octavo Bible,
witli the name 'Otis Trowbridge' on the cover, and within the inscription : 'A
tribute of affection from the infant class of the Eliot Sunday school to their
Superintendent.' Mr. Trowbridge, being taken by surprise, was much affected
by this token of love; and hardly had made suitable aclcnowledgment, when
Mr. William J. Gilbert rose, in behalf of the whole school, and presented to Mr.
Trowbridge a valuable purse of money and an elegant parlor melodeon."t

Mr. Trowbridge prepared a genealogy of Deacon James Trowbridge (No. 1000)
and his descendants, which was published in pamphlet form in 1854 and has
been of service to the compiler of this genealogy. The funeral seivices of Mr.
Otis Trowbridge were lield in the old Eliot Church. They were conducted by the
pastor, Eev. Dr. J. W. Wellraan, and were of a very, impressive character.

1121. Almarix Trowbiudge (Nathaniel^"' - ', Edmund^"-'. Thaddeus^"^',
William'^"''*, James'-''"", Thoinas'^), born November 24, 1811, in Quebec, Canada;
died June 15, 1897, in Charlestown, Mass.; married September 15, 1846, in
Charlestown, Elizabeth Ann Soutlier, daughter of Joseph and Hepzibah L.
( Armistead) Souther, bom September 13, 1820, in. Charlestown ; died July 5,
1898, in Charlestown.

Almarin Trowbridge was bom in Quebec, Canada, during a temporai-y stay of
his parents in that city, but he always claimed Newton, Mass., as his birthplace.
He passed his chihlhood on his fathei-'s farm in Newton, and in his early teens
came to South Boston and worked in the store of an uncle. On April 13, 1836,
he entered the National Union Bank of Boston as a clerk. He was made its
bookkeeper on Januai-y 1, 1837, and held that position for twenty years. On
January 1, 1874, he was appointed its cashier, and continued to act in that
capacity until August 19, 1890, when he resigned on account of advanced age.
During all of this period, over fifty-four years, he was highly esteemed in banking
circles and, long before his retirement, had come to be one of tlie best kno\vn and
most respected of Boston's bankers.

Immediately after his marriage he built a house in Charlestown on the corner
of Mead and Russell streets, and during the remainder of his life he made thi.s
his' home. With the house was a large piece of landf which Mr. and Mrs. Trow-
bridge, who were very fond of plants, kejit as a garden, selling none of it, but
protecting it with a high fence as the city grew up around it. It was a quaint,
old-fashioned spot, with its little green for drying clothes, its fruit trees and
flowering plants (among tliem a gigantic wistaria that climbed to the third-story
windows), and domi in one corner the vegetable garden. The children and,
later, the grandchildren loved it. Some of the pleasantest recollections of the
four grandchildren are tlie games there, or of watching their grandfather (who
was a small man) high up on a ladder trimming tlie grapevines, or of following
their grandmother between the little dwarf box hedges while she snipped her
■'posies." many of which found their way to the poor and sick in homes and
hospitals and charitable institutions.

* Except i, who is recorded in Southborough, Mass.

t It was so large, that when it was sold to settle Mrs. Trowbridge's estate three very
large brick apartment houses were erected on it without disturbing the original house.


Life in the Mead street house went on pleasantly though quietly. Mr. and
Mrs. Trowbridge were happy in each other and in their children, and also took a
philanthropic and religious interest in the lives outside their immediate family.
Few good works went on around them in which they were not more or less con-
cerned. Up to the day of their deaths, although their bodily activity of
necessity was less, they retained the use of all their faculties and their minds
were as keen and their kindly, gentle natures as unspoiled as in the days of their
youth. Their golden wedding anniversary was passed in tlieir old home, and
there, two years later, Mr. Trowbridge died, his widow surviving him only a little
over a year.

Mr. Trowbridge united when a young man with the Pine Street Church,
Boston. He later joined Winthrop Church, Charlestown, and remained a
devoted member of it imtil his death. For many years he was a member of the
choir and the secretary of the Sunday school.

"The death of Mr. Almarin Trowbridge, who passed away at his home in Charlestown,
Mass.. June 1.5th, remove.s one of the highly esteemetl and estimable members of Winthrop
Cluu-ch. with which lie was connected for fifty-seven years. With a retiring disposition
and rare domestic virtues, he united a talent for business and a benevolent heart, which
niiule him prominent in mercantile and philanthropic life. Having been connected with
the Union Bank of Boston for many years as bookkeeper and cashier, he was well known
to business men as an able and upright man, while his relations to the church have been
those of a steadfast friend, holding several positions of importance and contributing
largely to its support and to all good causes. He retired from active life a few years ago
in feeble health, and was over 8.5 years of age at the time of his death. He leaves a name
which suggests only the most unobtru.sive and loyal fidelity to the interests of religion and
the world at large. Infolded in the light of faith his soul waited for God. and at last
entered the celestial city in tranquility and hope, the eternal love bridging the abyss for
him between earth iind heaven."*
