Trowbridge enlisted at the outbreak of the Revolution in Capt. Thomas
Clark's Derby company, which marched to relieve Boston at the Lexington
alarm and was on duty two days. Family tradition credits him with a
later enlistment, and says he was taken prisoner with his brother by
the British and confined in a prison ship, where both had smallpox, of
which his brother died.
After his marriage he settled on a
farm in Oxford. He and his wife were admitted members of the Oxford
Congregational church April 18, 1784. He followed his father to Fair
Haven, Vt., and in August 1786, the latter gave him his "second
division lot" lying on the south side of the river. He sold this after
his fathers death and went to live on West street in the village. He
lived there until the spring of 1810, when he emigrated to Washington
county, Ohio, and settled near Marietta. He removed to Ames township,
Athens county, in 1820, and in June 1836, to Swan Creek, Ohio township,
Gallia county, where he passed the remainder of his life. He was a
prosperous farmer and pursued an active life until shortly before death.
