1419. Francis Hubbard Tkowbridge {Ih'nnj B.^"'\ JoeZ^""), born January i

22, 1825, in Goshen, Conn. ; died November 29, 1901, in Xeligh, Neb. ; married, I

first, October 30, 18-14. in Cambria, N. Y., Lorinda Belmer, daughter of Anthony

and Mary Ann (Laundre) Behuer, born June 6, 1830, in Franklin county, N. Y. ; i

died November 10, 1899, in Neligh. He married, second, November 24, 1900, I

in Neligh, Jennie B. (Haskell) Kelsey, widow of J. H. Kelsey and daughter of ;

Charles and Eliza Jane (Davis) Haskell, born November 24, 1834, in Mile, Me. j

She resides in Neligh.

Francis H. Trowbridge came in boyhood with his parents to Lewiston, N. Y., |

and became a fanner. He continued to live in Niagara county, N. Y., until 1855,
when he followed his jiarents and other members of his family to Burlington,

Eacine county. Wis. He there continued to be engaged in farming. He was ,

appointed assistant of F. S. assessor for one-half of his county, being the only
farmer appointed in his congressional district. \

From 1861 to 1864 he was chairman of a county committee of five to encourage
enlistments in the army, his only son being among the first of those who enlisted. 1

In 1864 President Lincoln asked for three regiments of infantry from Wisconsin i

to serve 100 days. Mr. Trowbridge helped recruit one of these regiments, the 39th

Wisconsiii Infantry, and, leaving his wife and five little girls at home — his only |

son was then serving in the army — he went to the front as second lieutenant of

Company D, having been conunissioned May 21, 1864. This regiment left the !

state for Memphis on June 13 and rendered eificient sei-vice in the brilliant '

operations in the Southwest, contributing in no small degree te the victories
of the national arms.

Mr. Trowbridge was elected sui>ervisor of Racine county in 1866 for a term of
two years, there being three supervisors to a county. In the fall of 1868 he
removed to Mercer county. Mo., and froni there to Antelope county. Neb., in

April, 1873, as one of the earliest settlers of Neligh. He resided there the ;

remainder of his life. In 1874 he \\as elected school director and had the '

principal care of building the first school-house, and was elected a justice of the ,

peace the same year. In 1878 he was elected a member of the state legislature
for a term of two years. He was appointed one of three appraisers of school

lands in 1879 and one of three census enumerators in 1880. After the incoriiora- \

tion of Neligh, he was elected to represent it in the county board of supervisors i

for 1894 and 1895, also during those years served as its mayor. He was county i

correspondent of the U. S. Department of Agriculture for more than twenty- * ,

five years. ,

Mr. Trowbridge, besides being occupied with his farm and public duties, also
wrote insurance, for the most part for neighboring farmers. He was also local :

agent for a Minnesota and an Illinois nursery. He was made a Mason in Wis-
consin in 1863, and was a charter member of Howell Lodge, No. 71, of Neligh, 1
being its second master, 1881-3. He was the first conunander of John C. Tre- i
mont Post, No. 68, G. A. E., of Neligh, organized in 1882. He was president of i
the Neligh Cemetery Association for ten j'ears and also served as volunteer '
funeral director. His varied business and duties made Mr. Trowbridge a very

busy man and he contributed greatly to the advancement and prosperity of i

Neligh. He was much interested in gathering data of his branch of Trow- '

bridges, descended from his grandfather, for this genealogy.
