JOHN JABEZ TROWBRIDGE

As the eldest son of David Trowbridge and Anna Youngs, John Jabez apparently was given the responsibility of attempting to assist his mother when she was left heavily in debt after the death of David Trowbridge in 1861.  He also appears to have been friends with his wealthy former brother-in-law, state senator Levi Dalrymple Jarrard, who was also Eunice's relative, because John Jabez named a son after him.  John Jabez may have been appealed to Levi Jarrard for help when he tried to rescue his mother's property from the bank, because Levi started purchasing Trowbridge lands from 1861.  John Jabez also operated an iron mine, as did his wife's family, the Dalrymples.
