JUSTUS STRAWBRIDGE (TROWBRIDGE)

According to Francis Bacon Trowbridge in "The Trowbridge Genealogy", Justus apparently moved to Columbia Co., Pennsylvania, where his descendents adopted the last name of "Strawbridge".Francis Bacon Trowbridge obtained the information on Justus Strowbridge's descendents from the Mary Stiles Guild book, "The Strobridge-Strawbridge Genealogy", published in 1891. He believed that the Justus Strowbridge listed in this genealogy was Shubael's son because the Mary Guild information corresponded with family traditions handed down from the two elder branches of the family that remained in Morris County (Augustine and Jabez Trowbridges descendents) that stated Justus and John "went to Pennsylvania, or the West, changed their names to Strowbridge, and one of them had a son who was a doctor.  "Francis Bacon Trowbridge further writes "the Justus Strowbridge in the Mary Stiles Guild genealogy is more than likely Justus Trowbridge because he not only lived in Pennsylvania, but also had a son who was a doctor, and a son named Shobel."
