McReynolds, daughter of Aaron and Rachel (Galloway) McReynolds, born
March 23, 1848, in Killing-worth, Conn.

Ira Trowbridge came with his parents to Columbus, Wis. When nineteen
years old he became a soldier in the Civil War. He enlisted August 15, 1S62,
for three years in Company G, 23d Wisconsin Infantry. He participated in the
battle of Chickasaw Bayou, La., the actions at Grand Gulf and Port Gibson,
Miss., the battle of Champion's Hill, the action at Black' River Bridge, the siege
of Yicksburg, the action at Carrion Crow Bayou (where he received a slight
womid in the right shoulder), the battle of Mansfield, La. (where he received a
giuishot wound in the head), the action at Cane River, La., the siege of Spanish
Fort (Mobile), and the actions at Blakeley, Ala., Magnolia Hill, Miss., Pleasant
Hill, La., and Fort Ilindman, Ark. He was discharged July 4, 1865.

After his marriage he engaged in farming in Blue Earth county, Minn. In
1880 he removed to Ottertail county, Minn., and settled on a government home-
stead in the town of Candor, about ten miles south of Detroit, where he has
lived ever since, engaged in farming and saw milling. He has held the office of
town chairman.

"Gradually the native monarchs of the forest have fallen before the wood-
man's axe, and the fields and meadows have broadened and extended to the shores
of the beautiful lake which was named in honor of the pioneer who is the subject
of this sketch. The primitive log hut has given place to the more pretentious
frame structure, there are large barns for the accommodation of the live stock,
and the garden contains a good growth of fruit and shade trees and flowering
shrubs. Looking back over these years, Mr. and Mrs. Trowbridge, doubtless,
have occasion to recall to mind the performance of a great deal of hard work and
all the trials and privations incident to pioneer life. But as they contemplate
the change that has been wrought, and view their pleasant farm home sur-
roundings, they have reason to feel that their efforts have not been in vain."
