MY FOREVJORD 



I'll call this book: 

"The Additions to William Allen, and Amanda Helen (Morris) 
Trowbridge," family number 772, page 424 of that Beautiful Book 
"History of the Trowbridge Family in America," compiled by Francis 
Bacon Trowbridge, published 1908; Library of Congress Number CS 
71T806. The first 62 pages in this book are taken from that Book. 

The remainder of the pages are a work of family love that I 
have been compiling for a long, long time. I've tried to give the 
information of each family that personal touch and hope that the 
book will be filled with so much love that all my errors will be 
overlooked. I am so grateful and thankful to so many cousins and 
to Bertha Spence; and to Lemes for his patience. 

This book will never be complete as long as there are "Additions".

PREFACE 



About the year 1*50 the first attempt was made to collect and arrange in 
genealogical order tlie descendants of Thomas Trowbridge, the first of his name 
in this country, who emigrated from Exeter, Devonshire, England, to Dorchester, 
Alass., as early as lOST, and soon after went witli the early settlers to the 
colony of New Haven. Those who were most interested in this undertaking were 
Thomas R. Trowbridge of New Haven, Philo !M. Trowbridge of Woodbury, 
Conn., and Otis Trowbridge of Newton, Mass. As the result of their etforts, 
most of the descendants in the male line of Thomas, the second son of the 
settler, were collected by Rev. William S. Porter, who was employed for that 
purjiose by Mr. Thomas R. Trowbridge; many of the descendants of William 
Trowbridge, the third son. were collected by Deacon Philo ]\r. Trowbridge; and 
of the descendants of James Trowbridge, the youngest son, tiie records of several 
iiundred were collected and printed in a jiamphlet in l^oi by Deacon Otis Trow- 
bridge. John, the oldest son of the settler, did not come with his father to this 
Country and dit»<l unmarried in early manhood in Ta\iut<)n, England. The 
subject then rested until the s\immer of 1809, when Mr. Thomas R. Trowbridge 
employed Rev. Frederick W. Chapman to take the materials collected and gather 
such otlier records as might be found and prepare a book for publication. As a 
result of his work the ''Trowbridge Family" was published in 1S72. 

The compilation of the present book was begun early in 1S98. The genealogi- 
cal standard has advanced materially since the "Trowl)ridge Family" was pub- 
lished, and the compiler of the present book decided that he would obtain the 
best results if he shoidd disregard all printed records of the Trowbridges and 
proceed as if no history of the family had ever been published. He has followed 
this plan throughout the compilation of this book, and all statements made are 
based on public records, e.xamined by himself in nearly every case, or on corre- 
spondence with members of the family. ?v[r. I-othrop Withington, a recognized 
authority on genealogical research in Entrlish records, has been employed to 
couiluct the investigation in England. -Mr. Robert A. Smith of Washington, 
i). C, was employed to copy the war records of Trowbridges previous to the 
Civil War in the United State* Pension Office. The many hundreds of records 
of tlieir service in the Civil War were taken by the compiler from the official 
rosters of the several states (a most laborious work, as those volumes are not 
iude.xed), suiiplomonted by family letters and a search of the records in the Pon- 
fliou office. The compiler has searchwl the public r'^cord? diligently for the few 
facts that are missing in the earlier generations and bis correspondents know how 
earnestly li<? li^s written them to supply the facts missing in tiie later genera- 
tions, lie has made a special effort to give the birth and parentage of the 
Trowbridge wives. Tlie completeness of details in the biographical sketches 
imlicnte his eftorts in that direction. He has corresponded with some member 
of each family circle within the past si.x months, so that tjie family registers are 
as complete as it w:is jjossilde to make them. Tlie proof sheets have been com- 
pared with the original notes made by the eomiuler and the letters he has received. 

The iireater part of this book is a history of Thomas Trowbridu'e and his 
tiosccudants. In the course of searches for members of tliat family the compiler 
hn8 accumulated considerable data relative to several otiier families of Trow-

bridiies. «oine perhnps desponding from Tliomas Trowbridge, but so far not cer- 
tainly identified, and others known to be not descended from liim. Those have 
been included in this book. It is intended to record the history of successive 
generations in the male line, and tliat some branches are not brought down to 
the present time is due chiefly to tlie indifference of their members. But there 
have been very few such eases in comparison with the large number of branches 
whose members have been anxious to assist the compiler in every way in their 
power. It would have been iin agreeable work to have reconled the families of the 
many Trowbridge women who have married, for without their help as complete a 
history as this would have been impossible, but to have followed out the records 
of the female lines would have taken many more .ver\rs and made another volume 
larger than this, which would have at least doubled the cost of the book, and in 
very many cases would have been a reprint of portions of genealogies already 
published or anticipated others in preparation. 

The arrnngement of the successive families is simple. The name of each 
male head of a family is preceded by his own consecutive number and followed 
by an ancestral parenthesis stating his descent, the particular book number of 
each ancestor being printed superiorly. The records of a few members of the 
family were received after the numbering of the manuscript was completed, which 
has necessitated the \iso of die letters, a, b, etc., after the number. 

The compiler thanks the hundreds of Trowbridge men and women and the 
many others allied to them by marriage for the help they have so willingly 
given him in preserving in this comparatively enduring fonn the history of a 
family that has done its full share in the b\iilding of this country. The corre- 
spondence has been a pleasant one, except for a letter now and then that told 
of the death of one whose letters in the earlier years of this work made possible 
the connecting of the present generations with the past. Some branches of the 
family deservedly are entitled to have more of their members represented by 
portraits, either on account of their prominence or because they or their descend- 
ants have taken interest in this genealogy, but the compiler has endeavored 
to have at least one portrait of some member of each main stem or a picture of 
some old homestead that is endeared to the memory of its members. Likenesses 
of a number of the family that the compiler wished to include were either 
unobtainable or such that satisfactory portraits could not be made from them. 

The compiler feels that he has conscientiously made every effort to make this 
history complete and he now with regret draws his work to a close.

THE TROWBRIDGE ARM8 



The arms borne by the TrowbriHgo family are what are termed in heraldry 
nnne^ pnrlanfes, becnvise of their nlhision to the n;iiiie — the bridge and the wnter 
ninning through. In the earliest hornldry, whenever it was possible, tlie object 
(.'hoscn was one whose name bore siitRciont re.-ieml)lance in sound to suggest the 
imit'.c of the bearer of it. This characteristic of the Trowbridge arms is an 
cvidi'iioe of their anti<iuity. 

In ".V Treatise on Heraldry" by Woodward and Burnett, page 362, is printed 
the following account of the use of the bridge in liornldry : 

"In the later supplement which follows M. Vallrtt.'s edition of the 'Armorial 
lie Berry.' . . . Azure, a bridge argent supporting a ciistle, or. is borne by 
I'ontaut; this resembles tlie eighteenth century coat of Trowbridge, Bart. Or, 
liver wnter in base a bridge of three arches enibnttlcd thereon a tower proper, 
its flag flying charged with a cross potent of the field; on a canton of the third 
two keys in ?rtltire gold.* Of bridges without castle? there are a pood many 
instances. The Scottish family of Bridge naturally bears: Gules, a bridge of one 
arch argent, stream transfluent proper. Azure, a bridge argent is a coat of 
riorrci>ont, and (with square arches) Pontbriant, Gules, a bridge of two arches 
or is boruo by the Marquises of Pontcves in France. Or, a bridge of three arclics 
snble is used by the Prussian Briickners. The Venetian Counts da Ponte carried 
nzurc. a bridge of ono nrch with steps or." 

In tiic herald's vi.sitation of the county of Devon the Trowbridge arms arc 
described as: Or, i,ver water, proper, n bridge towered, gules. The Harleian 
Society printed in this connection the following document: 

"Sclnnt pracspntcs Pt f\itiirl quod oen Wnltcrus de Trobriilce dwli et concrssl Hospro

of the arms, one exactly like the seal and the other the snino with n tower added, 
may be seen in "Elvin's Dictionary of Heraldry." plate .\.\iii. nns. 10 .and 20. 

That the Trowbridge family of Taunton, Somersetshire, was related to that of 
Dcvonsliire is snfficiputly proved by the similarity of the family arms.

jiicture of the tankard, with the arms traced tliereon, can be seen on the phite

The plate for the arms an shown in the frontispiece wa.s prepared by the depart- 
ment of heraldry of Tiffany of New York, after exhaustive investigations by the 
compiler, and it is considered by him to corret'tly depict the Trowbridge arms. 

The description of the Trowbridge arms is: Or. on a hridge of three Urdu's 
embaltled, in fens, ;7u?f4, mosoned sahle, as many streams tninsfinent towards the

The motto engraved below the arms in the frontispiece was chosen by the 
compiler and it seems to him an eminently fitting one, containing as it does a 
reference to the family name. It is: Sit pons finnns. Let the bridge be firm.

INTRODUCTION 



Trowbridge* hns been used as a surname in England for many centuries, but 
flio oxnet time tlint it was tirst so used is uncertiiin and the authors of diction- 
iirics of family -"umames do not agree as to its derivation. Bardsley in his 
"Dictionary of Entrlish and Welsh Surnames" i^fates that the name was first 
trivcn an individual on account of his resilience at Trowbriiigi; in Wiltshire. 
It may bo that this was its origin, and that a member of the family removed to 
J)ovou and gave the same name to his seat in that county, and it is also quite 
pnssiblo that some individuals in later timos may have assumed the name of 
Trowbridge on account of a residence at Trowbriduro, but that an earlier claim 
may be made for its vise as a family name seems to l)e indicated by the history of 
the town of Trowbridge. 

''Trowbridget is a tiiriving market town situated on a rocky eminence rising 
from the valley of the river Biss, and in respect of population is the largest town 
in Wiltshire. It.s history has never yet been fully written, and yet few towns 
have fairer claims to our notice, both on account of the old and interesting asso- 
ciations that are connected with it. as well as from the important position it has 
now assumed for some years as one of the principal seats of the woolen manufac- 
tiirc in the west of England. 

"The parish of Trowbririge forms part of the hundred of Mcll<sham. On the 
south side it adjoins the hundred of Whcrwelsdown and on the west that of Brad- 
ford-on-Avon. It consists of a strip of land some three miles long and on an 
average one mile broad, and contains in all 2,44.T acres. It is divided into 
wn-eral tithings: on the north is that of ,Staverton; on the west that of Trowle; 
on the south that of Studley; and there is also the town liberty. The town 
itself is situated, as nearly as may be. in the center of the whole parish. 

"Writers on Trowbridge, especially those connected with it. have sought to 
rstj\blish for their town a greater antiquity than has generally been concoied to 
if, but imtil we come to tlie ei\d of the eleventii century we can find no trace of 
the history of this place and then we find it in Domesday Book, where it is called 
Rtrnburg; a strange form of the name, but nevt-rthek-ss pretty clearly to be 
identified with what we now call Trowbridge. It is as follows: — 

'Brlctrio holils Strnbur^. His father liek] it in the time of Kin? Kdwnrd and it 
pnid geld for 10 hidf.v:. Tlic Innd is rariiratps. In doinesiie nre - ranirntes and 7

18 TUOWBKIDGE GENEALOGY 

"In A. D. 1100, just thirteen j"e.Trs after the completion of the Domesday 
record, Trowbridge (.Trobregc) and Staverton are recorded as being in the pu^- 
se-^siun of Edward of Salisbury, a great Norman noble, who was Vice Comes, or 
sheriff of Wiltshire, and had no less than 3S manors in this county. In a docu- 
ment of the date A. D. 1120-1130 it is enumerated amongst those estates which 
were of his own acquisition in contra-distinction to those which he enjoyed liy 
inheritance, and this looks rather as though he had purchase*! it. The descent of 
the manor from that time to the present can be easily traced. 

"But though Trowbridge had its castle, in these early days it was but a small 
and unimportant place. That it was but an insigniticsmt town, even fifty years 
after this time, seems evident from the following facts. It is not mentioned 
among the towns in Wiltshire on which rates were levied in 1168 (14 Henry II) 
'to marry the king's daughter' to the Duke of Saxony, nor among tliose from 
which 'aid' was taken in 1187 (33 Henry II), by the king^s justices." 

It is staterl in the preceding sketch of Trowbridge that it was an insignificant 
town in 11G8, but in 1158 (4 Henry II) in the Devon Feet of Fines there is 
mention of John Troubnigge.* It would, therefore, scorn not unlikely that the 
name had an origin independent from the town of Trowbridge. 

The first syllable of the name Trowbridge is probably derivol from the Old 
English word trough, trogh or trou, and the Anglo-Saxon trog or Iroli, a natural 
trough or channel in a stream, and the second syllable from the Old English word 
brigge, bregge or brugge (unassibilated brig or brugg) and the Anglo-Saxon 
brycg or bricg.i 

It is reasonable to suppose that the first individual who bore the name of 
Trowbridge was one who lived near a stream running swiftly in a well-worn 
channel through the arches of a bridge.:): He may have got his name for some 
feat of daring at or near tlie bridge, or taken part in its defense. He may 
have received his coat of arms for valor while in command of the defense of 
the bridge in some engagement, and, if so, the color of the bridge in the arms 
would indicate that the conflict was a sanguinary one. 

The copies of documents and records relating to the Trowbridge family in 
England which are printed in this genealogy were selected from a large amount 
of data gathered by Mr. Lor,.rop Withingt<_in of London, whose services were 
engaged to conduct the researches in England which resulted in successfully 
establishing the parentage and immediate ancestrj' of Tiiomas Trowliridgo, the 
primitive settler in America. It will be shown that he bclonge<l to the Taunton, 
Somersetshire, branch of the family, and after tlie jiroof of his parentage was 
est<iblished the main effort of the researches in England was to prove the connec- 
tion between that branch and the other families of tlie name there and in the 
adjoining county of Devon. Investigations in that line are still progressing an<l 
the indications are that scvitmI generations more will be added to tlie peilicrci' of 
T'homas Trowbridge printed in tlii"; gi>ni'a!ogy. Sliurt as this is. comiian-il with 
the centuries that the name fiourished bc'forc his birth, his di'sccndant.^ will be 
gratified to know that of only a vi-ry few of the early New England settlers has so 
much authentic ancestral lineage been proven as is printed here. 

The rccord= show that the Trmvliridsre family were Imig seated in Devon, and 
it Is said^ that the barton of Trowbridge in the jiarish of Crediton was in tiie 
possession of t!ie family in tlio reign of Edward I.

TKOWBRID<iE GENEALOGY 19 

It is suppopoil that a younger branch of the Devonshire family of Trowbridge 
settled in Somersetshire,* and many documents relating to it have been found in 
tlie records of that county. 

It is, however, in the Trowbridge family that is found residing in Taunton, 
Somersetshire, about the middle of the sixteenth century, that most readers of 
this genealogy will feel the chief interest, for from this branch of the family, it 
will be shown, sprang Thomas Trowbridge, the primitive ancestor of a very large 
majority of the Trowbridges in America. 

Taunton stands on the great road leading from Land's End in Cornwall 
Ui the north of England, lying betwcM^n E.xeter and Bridgewater, thirty-three 
miles northeast of the former and eleven miles south of the latter — the situation 
rendering it the thoroughfare from Bristol and Bath to Exeter and Plymouth. 
It has been noted for ita manufacture of woolen, and its trade may be traced 
back to the reign of Efhvard III, wlio first brought woolen raanufactorio-s to 
England. It was with this trade that tlie Trowbridges of Taunton were so long 
identified. 

"Taunton has ever been a principal town in the county of Somerset. Before 
the modem improvements were introduced, it was deemed well built. Its streets 
are spacious, as it extends over a considerable extent of ground. The houses, 
even in the middle of it, are furnished with good outlets, which contribute much 
to the pleasantness and salubrity of the town, as well as to the convenience of 
its inhabitants. It is a mile long, from east to west, and its streets have a 
gradual descent to the river. It stands in a fertile and extensive vale, and is 
called by Camden one of the eyes of the county. The county all around is 
beautified with green meadows, abounds in delightful orchards and gardens; is 
enriched with wood, and peopled with numerous villages, so as to exhibit to the 
eye of the spectator, who approaches the town, a charming scene. The county 
in itself, though, in the winter, moist and marshy, is supposed, by some, to derive 
its name (Somersetshire) from the sunimerlike temperature of the air. The part 
of it in which Taunton is situated has, if not an exclusive, yet a jieculiar claim 
to the excellent qualities ascribed to the whole. On account of its fertility, tlie 
peasantry used to boast that it was so fruitful with the zun and zoil, alone, as 
to need no manuring. This country is called by the inhabitants, Taunton Dean, 
that is the vale of Taunton, and from the high conceit of its pre-eminence above 
other counties, hath arisen a beautiful proverb — 'miere should I he born, else, 
hid Taunton Dean,' — as if it were a disparagement to bo born in any other 
place; and none in England, nay, in the whole world, were to be compared 
with it."t The motto of the town of Taunton is: Defendamus, Let us defend. 

The description of Taunton in Domesday Book is as follows :t 

"The Bishop of Winchester holds Taunton. Archbishop Stigand held it in the time of 
King Edward, and it paid the geld for fifty-four hides and two yard-lands and a half, 
of which there was arable land enough for one hundred ploughs. Besides this the 
Bishop has in demense twenty carucatcs which never paid the geld and thirteen plough.s. 
There are eighty Villans. eighty-two bordars, seventy bondmen or slaves, sixteen coli- 
liorti anil -^nientofn swineherds, who render seven pounds, ten shillings, and amongst them 
nil they have si.'ity ploughs.'' 

"The hundri^l of Taunton-Dean is divided* into three districts, the hundred of 
'J'atmton market, the infaring divi-;i(m and the outfaring division. Taunton 
market eomprrjionds that part which is distinguished as the borough of Taunton. .

St, Mary Magdalen Church. Taunton, was originally only a chapel dependent on 
tiip conventual ciiuivh. In olden times there were seven chantries annexed to 
St. Mary Magdalen riuirch. and the priests who otticiatcd in them were pensioned 
ot the dissolution of the religious houses. The name of W. Trowbridge is given 
ns the last incumbent of the Holy Cross fraternity and his yearly pension in 
1.553 stood at £4. He may have been Sir William Trowbridge, curate of Ruish- 
ton, whose will was proved at Taunton July 4, 1562.

.lune 27, 1610. "Billof Complaint of Thomas Trowbridge of Taunton Somerset, mercer, 
that whereas being seized etc of one messuage and dwelling house situate in Taunton 
standinge in the Markett place and bodye of the same Towne nere unto a certen Crosse 
commonly called the High Crosse there unto which dwellinge house in the ffore part 
thereof there is a verie faire and spacious sboppe belonginge and standinge under the 
Uouffe of the said Messuage which shopp standeth and openly to that part of the streete 
of the said Towne where the chiefe part of the Markett place of the said Towne is and 
where the greatest Concurse of people (in the tyme of the marketts here) ys bcinge a 
Markett of greatest request and chiefest note in all the Country there aboutes By 
Reason of which convenient standinge of the said Sboppe your said Orator having had 
the use and possession of the said .Shoppe by the space of ueere Thirtie yeres .... 
and being far stricken in age desiring to let same .... John Trowbridge his 
natural and only son having the nexte shoppe adjoining .... for selling of 
woolle clothes .... Your orator being desirous to prefer one Thomas Chicke of 
the said Towne of Taunton .... some time your orator's servant .... to 
whom he granted about half a year ago a lease of the said .shoppe for your orators 
Chick's live, said Chick promising to keep the shop for the same trade which not doing 
he must surrender it up, etc. But now so it is said Chick having bought a dwelling 
house with a sboppe in another remote place in the said tonne to which he seeks to draw 
the custom and has shut up the orator's shopp and threatens to let it out for some other 
trade." Desires possession. ".Vnswer of Thomas Chick, defendant, June .30, 1610. Says 
that 3 or 4 years ago the complainant leased the said sboppe to Benjamin Cosyns of 
Taunton, mercer, for complainant's life at £7 yearly who entered in and traded for 2 or 
3 years but said Cosyns shortly after growing in decay was compelled to give said shopp 
over to one .Tames Proctor of London, mercer, the said defendant being his customer and 
chapman has wished him to take over the business which he did with Complainant's 
knowledge, but not being able to furnish it suitably would desire to lett it till he is 
more able." [Chancery Proceedings, Mitford, 115. no. 104.] 

From tlie above bill of complaint it appears that Thomas Trowbridge, tlie elder, 
was a mercer and a man of wealth. That he was a man of generous impuLses and 
public spirit the following account of the well-known Trowbridge Charity, 
established by him, bears witness: 

"On the 4th of December, 1614, Thomas Trowbridge, the elder, of Taunton, 
granted and assigned' unto ten trustees two closes or pieces of ground, called 
Tunaways, the one consisting of five acres, and the other one acre, and lying in 
West-Monkton, for the residue of a term of one thousand years, commencing on 
the 25th of September, 1613, upon trust, that out of the rents and profits of the 
said closes, then worth si.x poimds per annum clear to pasture, there siiould be 
p.TJd on St. Andrew's Day yearly, unto the churchwardens and overseers of 
St. ^lary ^Nlagd.ilen, six pounils, whereof they wore to pay on that <lay yearly, 
to the churchwardens and overseers of St. .James, in or near Taunton, forty 
shillings, to be hy them distributed amongst forty of the poorest, oldest, most 
honest, and impotent poor of that parish., hy a shilling a-piece; the same distribu- 
tion to be made on St. Thomas's Day, before Christuias; and within a month 
after such ilistriluition, the said overseers of St. .lames to give a note of the 
names of those that rcceivcfl the said benevolence to the churchwardens and 
over.scers of St. Mary Magdalen aforesaid. 

".Vnd that the residue, being fotir pounds, shniild be distributed by the said 
cluirchwardens and overseers of St. ^lary ilafrdalen, amongst eighty of the like 
poor of that parish, by one shilling a-piece, the same day; ;md a note kept of tlie 
names of the said poor, and such names delivereil in at Easter, before the con- 
stables of the borough of Taunton, two or more of the trustees being called in.

And if tlie profits amounted to more than six poiinrls, the rosiijue to be in like 
manner distributed amongst the poor of Taunton St. .Mary ^Magdalen, and to be 
nncounted for a3 aforesaid. And if the profits should not amount to six pounds, 
then a proportional abatement to be made on each parish, and the residue to be 
distributed as aforesaid. And when the number of trustees should corae to four, 
then n new deed to be made to some person or persons, who should assif^ tiieir 
interest back again to these four, and as many more as they should think exx>edi- 
ent, the major part to be the most efficient and honest inhabitants of the town of 
'I'nunton; so that the term might be preserved to the uses aforesaid. And that 
this gift should go on to the increase of the relief of the poor, and not to ease any 
rate or taxation. And the donor desired that the poor should bo assembled on 
St. Thomas's Day, at divine service, at their respective parish churches, except 
Buch as could not; and after the distribution made, the donors name to be men- 
tioned, and they put in mind to thank God for His mercy."* 

On the west wall of the south porch of St. ;\rary's Church is a tablet, about two 
foct six inches long by one foot three inches wide, painted black, with the 
following inscription in gilt letters:

In connection, with the foregoing account of the cliarity tlie following letter 
from Mr. Henry Trowbridge (No. 50) of New Haven, Conn., to his brother 
Thomas will be of interest to members of the family. 

London, January 20, ISOO. 

"I visited Taunton yesterday. Immediately on arrivinc there I went to St. JIary 
Macdalen. sent for the sexton, and inqnired for the eelebrafed tablet, the inscription of 
which ynu know. I asked him if he could tell me wliere our revered ancestor was buned. 
He could not; for in the restoration of the church all the vaults were fille<l u]) ami paved 
over. The original .slabs over the graves were, e.xcept as taken care of by desci'ndant.<?, 
all worked over and placed in the pavement of the side aisles, and nearly all so worn down 
by passing over them as to be entirely defaced. On one the letters TROW on one side 
w.as ilistinct, but nothing else could be deciphered. The slab appeared to have been cut in 
two, or reduced to conform in width to the rest of the pavement. I think this w.as our 
ancestor's slab, but there is nothing certain about it. .\fter speniling as long a time in 
and about the church as was desirable. I inquired about the wanleos, and whore the 
ai tive or leading one lived. I found he was the e.|itor of the Taunton paper, and not far 
off, and so w.'ut in seanh of him, and luckily found liim at home and sent up my card, 
lie soon made liis appearance. I immediately told him I was a direct desceiulant from 
Thomas Trowbridge, whose good deed was recorded in stone in St. Mary's, lie seemed 
much pleased to see me, and at once spoke of the charity as couferriug a blessing annually 
upon the poor. I, of course, was all an.tiety to know about it. so he brought out the 
book headed Tro" hri'lqc Charity, in which the annual receipt and ilistribution is rerorded 
and balanced. There has never, from the day of Thomas' death, been a failure to distrib- 
ute the annual income according to the spirit of the will, but not always to the letter. 
B'or a long time the shillings were given to the poor without calling them together in the 
church, as the will directs; but Mr. May, the present acting warden, and for many years 
past, a man of about your age and size, and with just your love and veneration for the 
past, iletermined to restore the former usage in exact conformity to the will, and ilid so; 
so that now, on St. Thomas' day, 'the poorest, oldest, most honest and impotent poor' 
of the parish of St. Mary Magdalen are a.ssembled at the church. e.xcept such as could 
not, when divine service is held and a sermon preached to them, previous to which each 
one receives a shilling ticket, and at the close receives from the rector a shilling on 
presenting the ticket, 'when the donor's name is mentioned an<l the poor put in mind to 
thank God for his mercy.' The day is wholly given up to this distribution. Mr. May 
says it is a most pleasing duty, and would have gratified me beyond measure to have 
witnessed the last distribution, 21st of December, and regretted exceedingly he did not 
know I was so near, so as to have invited me to it. He says there are always more 
applicants than the fund will supply. Many were eighty .years of age, hardly any below 
fifty, who participate. .Vny surplus remaining over is given in loaves of bread to the 
most deserving, in addition to the shilling piece. P.ut a still greater good results from the 
charity than the temporal relief. It is that these aged and impotent poor who are 
prevented from attending church, perhaps for the whole year, on this day hear the (jospel 
preached, expressly adapted to them, and under the most impressive circumstances, as it 
comes with the charity , which warms and feeds them. The charity is one of five of a 
similar character, but is the largest, and yielding now £20. Of course I was all an.xiety 
to see the land, which I learned was about a mile from town. .So Mr. May, leaving the 
rector with whom he was engaged, got into the carriage and drove with me to it. The 
day was beautiful, a bright sun shining, and as we halted in front of the lot, I thought I 
ni'ver saw so fair a field. The largest of the two fields contains five acres, and very 
similar to our laige lot ou the hill, cccept it rises gently from the highwav, instead of 
receding. It is surrounded with a hawthorn hedge, one half in grass and half in cultiva- 
tion. Eroni an old oak in the center of the lot, I gathered some dry le.ives which 
entwined it. one of which 1 send you. The oak is old enough to have sheltered our 
progenitor from the noon day sun. as he walked over his beautiful held. From the 
center I cut a small rod, which I have in a box, and will endeavor to carry safe to you. 
so iliat there mav be a marriage of Ihe lanrls of the 'L'liotnas of li'.H anil the Thomas of 
IM'.ii The other lot is separated from the one first visited by a strip of land, contains 
one acre, also lying on the highway. Koth arc precisely as they were when tie' will was 
made in 1'J14, in bounds and uieti's. 

"Is it not strange that a charily founded by will, more tlmn two hundred aiid forly-live 
vi'ars ago. at that tirue so insignificant. shouM have continueil. uuimipaired, and at this 
day shedding a fo\irfold blessing upon the p.ior. ami for that space of time the laml 
remained in the- same use as when the donor lived? I could not hut think, as the warden 
described the joy of the poor in listening to the n-lisious services, and afterwards, with 
tears, receiving their share of the good man's bestowment. that in him his rlescendants 
hail lii'cn blessed. .Mr. .May said he was glad to have a desceudant to render his account 
to. and made a copy of his last account, ISoS. (That of IS.'i'J was not closed in the 
parish book.) I send you a copy of it:

Satisfactory proof of the ancestry of Thomas Trowbridge has not been fouiul. 
He had a brother who had a son Thomas, for he mentions the latter in his will. 
He may have been a brother of William Trowbridge of Taunton, whose will, made 
in 1575, mentions his "brother Thomas Trowbridge," as if the latter were well 
known. John, son of Thomas, afterwards named a son William. Thomas or 
William was probably the father of William, Agnes and Thomasinc Trowbridge, 
baptized in St. Mary Magdalen. Tiuinton, in ]564, 1507 and 1509, respectively. 

The name of the^vife of Mr. Thomas Trowbridge was not found. As is stated 
in his will, she dic<i before him and was buried in St. Mary Magdalen Church. 
They had the following

Tnlin Trowbridge, only son of Thomas Trowbridge, scorns to have resided nU 
his life in Taunton, where from e.Trly youth he was in bu.siness as a wooleiiilrnpcr.

Taunton, and was a man of wc.tlth and.prominmico. In middle age he wn.* elected 
mayor of the town, and appears to have been conscientious in )>erfonning the

34: TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY 

"The Trowbridges named in the foregoing extracts were Mayor John, his 
father, the merchant Thomas, seemingly described as deceased, and his son 
Tliomas, the primitive settler in America. The record appears to be made some- 
where between 1620 and 1640, probably after Thomas Trowbridge had returned 
from New England or he is referred to without any notice of his being absent. 
It was all written at one period excepting the odd names at the bottom of tlie 
entries which are seemingly the tenants at some later period. The dates in the 
margin merely refer to the amount of the tines at some former period for the 
guidance of tho manorial orficials."* 

The following is of importance as proving the descent of Thomas Trowbridge 
through land ownership.

The point is reached where it is proper to present a copy of the most important 
document found by ilr. Withington in his researches in England, namely the will 
of John Trowbridge, former mayor of Taunton. The following letter from Mr. 
Withington, in which he describes the finding of the proof of the parentage of 
Thomas Trowbridge, tlie primitive settler in America, shows the value of this 
remarkable discovery from a genealogical standpoint and serves as the best 
introduction to the will. 

London, >8 July, 1908. 
Dear Mr. Trowbridge, 

I cabled you last evening: "Victory. Withington." 

The roasoQ for this was the discovery .-xt the last minute at Taunton two or three 
hours before of the enclosed abstract ot all now legible in a rotten and faded paper at 
Taunton which is all now left of the much desired will of John Trowbridge the elder, 
unidentified by the officials and of course not in the Calendar. This is the greatest coup 
ever made in this Knglish work on American origins, beating in dramatic completeness 
and overcoming of obstacles work at Somerset House with the magnificent engraved 
parchment books of the I'rero^ative Co\irt of Canterbury, .\fter all these years your 
theory is triumphant. The mention of that precious second wife Alice settles the whole 
question of the missing name of the testator, of which the "nper" (all left of "woollen 
draper") is nearly evidence enough, knowing as we do all the Trowbridges in Taunton at 
that time, Thomas and his son John. 

Three of us have had most unseasonable weather, at Wells, Taunton and Exeter: but 
we so organised our work as to give every possible chance of immediate result. At Wells 
we went through every existing transcript of the over five hundred parishes of Somerset, 
largely repulsive, rotten and faded fragments, to find if possible the marriage of John and 
the b.nptism of Thomas. .\t lOxoter we not only u.sed tlio diocesan :ind probate registries 
for the avail;il)le points, but also the old registri^-s of St. I'etrock and St. Kerian, to some 
purpose. Omt main attack w.i.s however at T.iunton where things sei-med absolutely 
linpeless after the partial failure of the hopeless muddle in the Castle and the exhaustion 
of every likely name of the probate registry. We s.aw there was nothing for it but to go 
through the files for .a hundred yenrs and look at every Taunton will and also any oild- 
ments. Hence our triumph. We could only do this, however, with exc'-ptional friendly 
ofBcial relations at Taunton, and doing at a moderate estimate three months' work for one 
or one month's work for throe in les.s than a w.^ck. .My two colleagues were M.'ssrs. 
Noble and Steele. I doubt if any other workers in Knglaud would have a<cnin[>lishcd the 
result uniler such apparently absobilely hopeless circumstances. 1 enclose the John 
Trowbridge will. 

Yours most sincerely, 

LOTHROP WiTHINCTOrf.

It is quite i>rohable that Tliomas was the iildest son of John, for there seems 
no gap in the register of John's children, and that assumption wottld make him 
the correct age to he tliu husband of his wife, who was horn in 1003, and the 
lawyer, who drew the hill of complaint of John (see p. 29) which calls .Tolin, 
Jr., his "eldest" son, may not have known of the absent Thomas. If Thomas 
is regarded as tlie eldest t>on of John, there is at once i)resentcd the coincidence 
between the names of their sons. Jolui's four sous were, in order, Thonuis, 
juimixl after his father, Joliii, after himself, William and James. Thomas's 
four sons were, in order, John, after Iris father, Thomas, after jiimself, William 
luid James; and these names, it must be borne in mind, were given liis first three 
sons while he was living in Exeter.

THOAIAS TROWBRIDGE 

TiiK Primitive Settler in Asikkica and uis Fajiily 



1'honias Trowbridfjc, tlie first of liis family to niiiiio to Aiiiorica, was the son, 
ns Jicrctoforo shown, of Jolin Trowhridgo, a wealthy incrchnnt anrl prominent 
citizen of 'I'annton, SomcrauUhire. llis father lind lon(? l)cen iilcntilicJ with the 
woolen trade in Taunton, which was noted for its manufacture of that staple, 
mill it was natural that the son when ho grew up should Unix his attention to 
somo branch of that indiistrj', and lie is found in early manhood established in 
business ns a uicrcer in tlie neighboring city of ]']xctcr iii Devonshire. At the 
tinu< when he took up his resilience there he found that the name U'rowhridge was 
a well-known and respected one in I'^xeter, with which members of the family liad 
liceu long identified through business and residence, and there also his sisti^r 
I'nulenee wont to live after her marriage in lC2i to William Mace, a leading 
iiiercliant of the city.* 

In the jicdigreo of tin; ifarshall family of Exeter was found the name of 
"'J'bouias Trobridge of Taunton." This reference was th<r clue that led to the 
finding of the record of the marriage of Thomas Trowbridge. 

In the list of marriage licenses issued for the diocese of Exeter it is recorded 
tliat on March 24, 1C27, Thomas Trowbridge of the parish of St. I'ctrock was 
licensed to marry Elizabeth ^Marshall of the parish of St.. Mai-y Arches. 

In the ))nrish register of St. JIary Arches a]>i)ears the following entry: 

"iiCi Kareh 1C27 Jfr. Thomas Trobrige and Elizabeth daughter of Mrs. Alee 
MarHliall widoe married, Jeremy Short parson."

William Mnrslinll, who had issue Robert Marshall, who married Joan, daughter 
and heir of Owsley of Chilliiigtoii, county Roiin'rset. Ilis will, dated Aug-ust 7, 
157C, was proved hy her October 9 following. [Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 
Carew, 29.] In it he is described as of Ashewille in the parish of Ilminster, 
and desires to bo buried in the churchyard of Ilminster. He gives to his son 
Edmund Marshall his rynes ajid bark and half his tanne vatos with a mill to 
grind bark (from this bwiucst it seems that he was by trade a tanner) ; mentions 
his sons, John, Nicholas, William, John (the younger) and 'Thomas (all under 
age); and appoints his wife Joan (who appears to have brought him some prop- 
erly) sole execiilri.v and residuary legnlcit. lln oppearB to have had two otlier 
children, Koger and Anno, who may have been twins, born posthumous. His 
wife, as "Joane ^Marshall," had been named as sister in the will of William 
Owselcy of Chillington, near Hminster, in Somerset, dated October 8, 1558. 
[Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Wells, 22.] 

John Marsliall (the younger) probably settled in Exeter in early life. He 
was "the worshij)ful Mr. John Marshall." He was bailiff of Exeter in 1001, 
sheriff in 1009 and mayor in 1015, retaining afterwards the position of alder- 
man. He married at St. Mary Arches August 'M, 1595, Alice Bcvys [Bcvis or 
]3oavis], daugliter of Pilchard and Ktizabcth (I'rouz) lievys. 

Tho Bcvys family* is traced in Devonshire to the reign of Henry IV. Richanl 
Bevys liecamo sheriff nf Exeler in 1591, governor of the Guild of Merchant 
Adventurers in IS'.tl and mayor in 10O2, dying August 20 of the latter year. He 
made a deed of tru.^t Juno 10, 1002, to Williaui Ticklo and John Marshall, gent., 
for a benefaction to provide marriage portions during future years to worthy 
young women of several parishes. His wife, Elizabeth Prouz (Prouzc, Prowse, 
Prowze), was probably a relative of Riclianl Prowse, mayor of Exeter in 1578. 
According to the pedigree of Prouz of Chagford, near Exeter, a very old family, 
Ilichard the mayor was seconil son of Lawrence I'rouz of, Exeter and Chagford, 
the estate of Chagford going to Lawrence's eldest son, John, who liad a daughter 
Elizabeth, ajiparcntly of about the ago of the Elizabeth married to Richard 
Bevys. Tho will of Nicholas Bcvys, son of Richard, a merchant of Exeter, dated 
November 8, 1012, and proved June 2, 1013, named as one of the executors 
''my brother John Marshall." Of the other sons of Richard Bevys, Peter anil 
Richard, the former was the more prominent and became lord of the manor 
of Bishop's Clist, near Exeter. The family is traced in Devonshire to the reign 
of Henry IV.

New Haven, 104.3, where his estate was valued at £1.000, his family of five hea<ls.

4:i TKOWBUIDGE GENEALOGY 

In the list of members of the Ancient and IlonornWe Artiilcry Company of 
Boston in 1038 appears the name ''Thomas Strawbriiifre." It seems quite rcason- 
;ihle to suppose that this was an incorrect entry for Thomas Trowbridge, as his 
social position and business relations would have made membership in such an 
organization attractive to him. 

The land records of the town of Dorchester contain the following references 
to Thomas Trowbridge. The parcels of land described seem of trilling value in 
comparison with his known means and business interests, and these extracts are of 
importance only in so far as thoy indicate the approximate time of his arrival 
at and removal from Dorchester. 

"The 2(1 of .lamiary 1G.'!7[-S]. It is ordored that the p'tj'es vnderwrittoQ shall Uaue

101-t about 4 akers and half of land on Capt'" neck which was belonging to M''- .fames 
Marshall of ICxetcr in old England and was late in the possession of Thomas Trowbridge." 

Thomas Trowbridge and his wife must have found it .i considerable hardship 
to live in the newly settled town of Dorchester, accustomed as they were to the 
comforts of a home in a city like Exeter. Their residence in the Massachusetts 
village, however, was not of long duration. 

Thomas Trowbriilge probably removed his househobl to the plantation of Now 
Haven in 10-38, but his name is not found among t^hose subscribed to the articles 
of agreement at the organization of the church or body politic there in June. 
1039. He may have been absent from Xew Haven at that time, or, ns this 
Fundamental Agreement, as it was afterwards eallcil, required that, '•cliurch 
members only shall be free burgesses,"' he may not have been eligible to sign it, 
for there is no evidence tliat he ever .severed his connection with the Church of 
England and became a member of the Puritan Clutrch. 

In the New Haven records his name again api>ears nearly always with the 
prefbc of respect, "!Mr." In the list of proprietors of the plantation in 1041 he 
is credited with five heads in his family. These are supposed to have been him- 
-df and wife and three sons, Thomas, William and James. His estate is given 
as £500, a large sum for tliat place and time, and it was among the larger of the 
123 estates mentioned in tlie si'hedule. His lioiise lot was on the west side of what 
is now lower St,ate strr-ot, just south of George street, "Mr. Henry ltutherford,t a

"The schcilule, though prepared before April, 1C41, is found in the record book

the record book in 1643, after some clianges had been made corresponding with 
changes of title, or was recorded when iirst prepared, the secretary reserving for 
his report of the court's proceedings the thirty pages which precede it. There is

between England, the West Indies and the Colonies. No record was found 
jirnving the exact date of his return to England, but it was prior to the fall of 
1041. He probably was recalled to England on account of business or some 
cvout of importance, and it may have been business in connection with the sottle- 
luont of the estate of his wife. The exact date of her ileath was not found, § but 
it is to be inferred that she did not long survive her arrival in New Haven, for 
it is not reasonable to suppose, from what is Icnown of her character, that if she 
hiiJ been living she could have returned to England with her husband and left 
hor three little sons in the care of strangers, and the records show that before 
li-nving New Haven Thomas Trowbridge placed his lands, houses, chattels and 
oatntc in New Haven in trust with his servant or steward, Henry Gibbons, 
for the benefit of his three sons, whom ho also left in Gibbons' care. It does not 
npp^'nr that he ever returned to America. 

(ubbons gave so little attention to his master's affairs at New Haven and the 
euro of his sons, that as early as November, 1641, the colony court ordered an 
iillnchnicnt to be placed on Jlr. Trowbridge's property "to pay tho town's rates 
mill satisfy the demands of those persons to whom he is indebted." The court 
plnccd tlie children under the care of Sergeant Thomas Jeffrey and his wife, who 
wiTO to keep them in their home until such time as "their father shall come over 
or wnd to take order co7\cerning them," wlien the court should determine "what 
i* I'qiiul for him to have for the keeping of them and in the meantime he will 
tnkp cnrc that they be well educated and nurtured in the fear of God." ilr. 
.Iclin Evnnce took the house, which Gibbons had allowed to fall into need of 
iinnirdinte repairs, at £100, and settled the claim-; of the creditors. 

The references to Thomas Trowbridge in the Now Ha\en records for the next 
fi-\v yeni-s consist of accounts of the legal complications arising from hi- 
•tiMvord's malfeasance. They are merely technical and are not of sufficient 
iiit<'rt><t or importance to demand reprinting hcre.|| 'i'liat he did nor return to 
Ni'w Huvcn and personally take charge .-f bis affairs there was probably because 
laulters of greater importance kept him in ICngland. '

4,j TROWBIUDGE GIONEALOGY 

It must be remembered that the Civil War iii England bo^an soon after 
Thomas Trowbridge left America. Ta\inton was t;iken by tlie Parliament 
forces in AugTist, IG-t'i, • ami the principal g<>ntry of the neighborhood, tiie 
trained biinds, the mayor and principal inhabitants of the town, ai<Ied with 
horse and foot the intention of securing tiiis place for the Parlianient. The 
attpni|>t to secure and fortify Taunton in the interest of the Parliament soon 
met with a temporary impe<linK'nt and defeat, for in the next year the marquess 
of ITi.'rtfonl tlrovc out the Parliament forces and took possession, of it in favor 
■ if the king. But tho fruits of this victory were not lasting, for on .Inly S, 
1G44, soon aft«?r the battle of ^larston lloor. Colonel Blake and .Sir Kohort Pye 
again toolc Taimton for tho Parliament. For some months things remained in a 
quiet st.ito at Taunton, but early in tlie spring of 104.') an anny of ten thousand 
i.f the king's forces under Lord Goring marched to the attack of the town and 
began wliat is known as the si(>ge of 'I'aunton. The liistoi-y of the siege, ending 
with tho final relief of the town, is well known.* 

Thomas Trowbridge aft<^r the death of liis father came into his inherit.inee, 
being tho only surviving son. lie succi.vded his father as the chief Trowbridge in 
Taunton, just as the latter had .succeeiled his father, and" that he was a man of 
ronseqiience there is shown by the prominence given him in the pedigree of his 
wife's family which has been previously i[uote(l. lie wrote often to the authori- 
ties at New Haven to bring (iibbons to an account for his breach of trust, but 
Gibbons kept possession of the Trowbridge estates in New Haven for many 
years, and affairs remained thus until the sons came of age. 

They liad continued in the meantime to pass their boyhood under the care of 
.Sergeant Jeffrey, their father evidently being satisfied with that arrangement, 
i'hey had received a good education under the instruction of Mr. Ezekiel 
Cheever, tho famous colonial schoolmaster.+ who taught the first school in New 
Haven. In the colony records it is noted tiuit at a court held February S, 1C4.3-4, 
•'Mr. Cheever desired 4-;i-G out of the estate of Jlr. Trowbridge w'^h is justly 
due to him for teaching y'' children." Tlie course of instruction to be pursued 
by the schoolmaster for his scholars at tliat time was '"after they are entered 
and can read in the Testament; to perfect them in English; and teach them 
their Latin tongiie as they are capable; and to write.'' 

Soon after ho came of age William Trowbridge endeavored to have an account- 
ing made of his fatlier's estate that was left in New Haven, and for this end 
presented to the court two letters from his fatiier. one dated ilarch O, 1G55, aivl 
the other March 4, l(i.">S, whcriMn his father wrote that he "marvells that there 
is not an account of it given." This attempt to recover from (iibbons w;us a 
failure, but finally, on January 19, lG0.'i-4, Mr. Trowbridge executed and sent to 
his three sons a power of attorney, making over to them jointly and severally liis 
property in New England wjierover found, to be retained and equally divided 
hetween them, and bring the said Gibbons t'> account and punishment.

CHARLEY TROWBRIDGE 

Uncle Charley Trowbridge was the last one of our direct line of the 
Trowbridge family, who carried the Trowbridge name. He was my mother's 
only brother. 

She used to tell me of his childhood days - the time at age 3 yrs . , 
when he wandered away from their home on the farm, and was found trudging 
along down a small ravine carrying his trousers in his arms. 

Another time at 7 yrs. of age, he decided that he did not want to walk 
to school, a mile away. So each day he would say "My boots hurt my feet, 
I can't walk." So she, only 12 yrs. old herself, would have to carry the 
husky little fellow on her back, to school. 

I was 10 yrs. old when I first knew him. He was 29 at that time. He 
lived that year (1900) with us and helped my mother and her four children, 
operate the farm where we lived in the Cleveland Community 7 miles south 
of Santa Anna, Texas. 

I remember that in those days, all men on farms carried pocket knives 
in their pockets. My small brothers, Willie and Roscoe , were always asking 
to borrow Uncle Charley's pocket knife. So one day he bought each boy a 
knife equipped with a 20 inch chain which hooked on to a shirt button to 
keep it from being lost. They enjoyed their knives very much. Willie still 
had his little knife when he passed away in 1971, at age 80 yrs. 

Uncle Charley was a good man, calm, and quiet and very devoted to his 
mother. 

Soon after her death in the Cleveland Community he built himself a -'■ 
small boat in which he rowed down the Texas' Colorado River to near 
Austin where the boat capsized. He returned home. A year or two later 
he drifted West. No one heard from him again for 32 years. He was then 
living in Olympia , Washington. 

A few months later he became seriously ill and his two sisters were 
notified. 

Roscoe sent them, (Clara Kilmer and Lena Cupps) to Olympia immediately 
(Ruby drove them) . When they arrived at the hospital there, Uncle Charley 
had passed away one hour before. 

Funeral services were arranged and he was buried the next day in 
Olympia.

•TAD" "GRANPAr" 

Didn't anyone enjoy those early picnic, anymore than 
Grandad. What-ever games, that were being played, dominoes 
baseball, croquet, what-ever. Grandad was right In the middle 
of It. 

As the Grandkids came along, they found out that Grandad like 
white Easter eggs. A lot of the Grandkids can remember pick- 
ing out their white Easter eggs for Grandaid . 

As time went along Grandad didn't make all of the picnic, but 
he did make most of the later picnic and enjoyed hls-self . 
Grandad had a big time at the 1970 picnic, with all nine children 
present . 

Grandad never missed a Easter Sunday or any Sunday at Church. 

With the passing of Grandad, the first generation of the picnic 
comes to a end . 

If all of Grandad family should show up for the 1979 picnic, 
there would be 102. What a wonderful hereditary to pass on. 
Grandad was very proud of his family.

Sherril Carlson twisted her ankle in one of the 
balloon games. Jeff Herring got into stickers 
and had a time pulling them out. Kellie broke 
out in a rash. 

The 1981 Picnic was jolly and a -.Tiice gathering. 
I enjoyed seeing the new babys because we seem 
to be decreasing each year. The more the merrier 
for the Easter Egg and Treasure hunts. They are 
really fun. Charlie sure is imaginative with the 
clues.- Rene Elder 

The association was impeccable Craig Schulle 

I enjoyed the 1981 picnic very much, I was a grand- 
mother for the first time. Mellie Wilson was 2 mts. 
old. She has to be the cutest, sweetest little baby 
I've ever seen. I had sad feelings in my heart this 
year. I knew we would never have another picnic with 
Harrell. I love all my uncles but Harrell had a special 
place in my heart. I can remember when I was very 
little and my Daddy had to leave us to serve our 
country. I was too young to understand what it 
was all about but I can remember I just "had to have 
a Daddy" and it didn't take me long to decide Preacher 
would do just fine. ITe ate his dessert before meals 
like I i/^ould do, saved my toes from being stuck with 
a fork (because I put my feet on the table). Carried 
me home and washed me up after I was black as a negro 
from lightening striking our stove pipe. He did give 
me a spanking once, but it really didn't hurt. I loved 
him and will miss his smile. In Memory of Harrell Roscoe

I have enjoyed writing these memos for the 
Treasure Book. It has been fun and also sad, 
ironic as it may be this is the 40th picnic and 
I will be 40 this Year. I like the sound of twice 
twenty better. I want to thank Brown for helping 
me get this together and everyone who contributed

1982 "Cupps" Easter Picnic y^ p^^^^ /y^^ 



\0 rjj \ r\ 

Easter '82 blew in like a norther & felt like one too.' Jean s Frank 
rolled in with their trailer s Russell Williams, Frank Williams, & James 
Hartman pitched their tent for the stay. The coal shoveling began around 10:30 
Friday night after wood from all around had been hauled s piled high. Those 
shoveling coals were David Morgan & Jimmy Schulle. Rocky Cox rolled in that 
night in his 18 wheeler s Billy Don came by later to put the meat on to cook. 
Without the sleepless nights of the above mentioned guys, our tummies would not 
witness the pleasure of the delious B-BQ. 

Charlie & Thelma had the grounds manicured. They must have started on them 
about Monday morning after the 81 Easter picnic. I think I can speak for the 98 
peaple in attenance — that without their long hard work we would all have an empty 
spot in our hearts. We all love you all for your dedication to the picnic. 

Saturday morning more & more folks came in-in ones, twos, bunches. I be- 
lieve this year proved to be the largest reunion recorded. But it still can be 

increased as of April 12th, 1982 we have 113 Cupps family members. I be- 

it was stated at this picnic we will have three new members to the "Cupps" clan; 
Regina (Cupps) Walker, Susan (Brooks) Wilson, & Johna Fay (Herring) Gibson are all 
expecting additions to their families. By noon it was cold but we all still 
enjoyed the great B-BQ & all the trimings that the ladies are so good at fixin. 
After the lunch the tables were cleared s the Easter Bunnies began their egg hidin. 
Easter Bunnies this day were: Margie golden, Peggy Sikes, Delores Vaughn, Joan 

Lunsford, s Pam Morgan. Oh there were sooo many eggs. The children had gone 

to Billy Don's to j\mip on the tram-o-line & to play basketball. All really en- 
joyed that. Trey Lunsford said he went to jump on the " jump-o-line" . Well, 
when the pickups came back they ran over a few of the eggs that the bunnies left. 
Those hunting eggs were: Trey Lunsford, John Morgan, Peter & Jeff Herring, James 
Hitchcock ( the youngest I think), Kellie & Sandy Molden, Kasha Cupps, Frank 
Williams, Russell Williams, James Hartman, Justin, Bobbie Jo, s Ricky Burleson, & 
Maria & Terry Carlson. Terry found the prise egg & got a chocolate bunny for it. 
Some were trying to talk him out of it but he was holding on to it pretty tight. 
Craig Schulle made dinosaur eggs for the smaller ones to find during the egg 
hunt. I wonder if the cave children hunted dino eggs? 

After the egg hunt the games were started. The water ballon toss was the 

first game well with the temperature around 40^ some were kind of leary to 

have the ballons thrown at theiji. Doug & Iris were the chmapions of the ballon 
toss. The neat game was the ballon popping contest. Team 2 won the game 2 times 

in a row.' \ \ I think it was rigged cause a lot of the chairs fell over with 

the other teams? Charlene had a game of pin the tail on the "rabbit". There 
was a lot of swinging, see-sawing, & baseball playing. The 42 tables were set up 
for some serious playing. Never did find out who the champion was. 

We had a new thing brought to picnic this year; that being the display of 
pictures. We had pictures from way back up to the present. It was interesting 
to see how & what changes in people had been over the years. A lot of memories 
were brought back to reality with those phots. Hope everyone got their pictures 
back. 

The Saturday evening weiner & marshmellow roast was held around the big fire. 
The temperature had dropped so the fires sure did feel good. Staying over to 
help with keeping the fires going for the B-BQ were Billy Don, Rocky, Ricky, Jimmy, 
& David. I think these guys might have gotten a little damp during the night. 



115 



At the Church Services Siinday morning were 54 family & friends, 2 rabbits 
of Kasha's & Thelma's dog. Those attending to hear Jack Bryant's sermon (Cindy 
Terry's husband) ot "Prayer" were: Bill & Eppie Lowery, Bea Cupps, Steve Ingram, 
Rhonda, Jean, Frank, Emmitt, Eunice, Tawana, Cindy, Rand, Sherrill, Maria, Terry, 
Darrel, Lucille, James Hartman, Frank Williams, J.E., Ovella, Russell, Billy Don, 
Kasha, Browne, Patsy, Shala, Jeffery, Jolinda Covey, Vickie Cummings, Rachel, Clara 
Pam, John, Charlene, Jimmy, Gene, James, Joan, Trey, Casey, Evaline, Marlina 
Pearce, Rodney, Bo Sikes, Glen Cook, Kenneth, Peggy, Iris, Margie, Sandy, Kellie, 
Doug, Charlie, & Thelma. The song service was conducted by Emmitt, & Browne. 
It was a great Easter Service. Thanks to all who took part in it. 

After the Church Service, everyone began setting up the tables, moving the 
chairs, s preparing the food tables. We had a bountiful B-BQ lunch with all the 
trimmimgs possible. Shortly after lunch a baseball game was started. Some of 
the guys & gals were dragged away from the table to play. No tiem to let the 
food settle at the "Cupps" Picnicsli: Those playing ball were Craig Schulle, 
Gene Schulle, Russell Williams, Frank Williams, James Hartman, Rand Carlson, 
Rodneys Bo Sikes, Roger, David, Jolinda Covey, Vickie Cummings, Shala Brooks, 
Jeffery Brooks, & Rocky Cox. An egg hunt was held & a walk to the big tree. 
It took seven people holding hands to go around the big oak tree. One of the 
groups going got lost but soon all was back together at the picnic grounds. 

After the trip to the tree, the business meeting was held. A suggestion box 
had been placed on the table on Saturday rooming & the suggestions were read at 
the meeting & discussed. Here was one of the suggestions: "I feel that the 
yotinger men that live around here should help prepare the picnic area. The 
younger people ought to help out more during the picnic, itie Cupps' Easter picnic 
gets its originality from the out in-the- pasture atmosphere & all the great 
homemade food, I hope that this will always remain the same. If anyone has 
ideas of taking the picnic from the pasture, just wipe it away. If it is re- 
moved it will loose all its character & originality." 

The nominations for President were: Charlie - 9 votes; Peggy - 1 vote; Charlene 
9 votes; Ovella - 4 ; Frank Cox - 4; Rhonda 1; Pam - 6. Charlie & Charlene had 
a run off with Charlene being nominated for President 1982. Nominations for 
Secretary were: Margie -17 votes; Sydney- 9 votes; Exinice - 1; Joan - 9; & 
Rhonda-1. Margie being the secretary for 1982. It was voted to have the picnic 
at Charlie's place & in case of bad weather to have it at the Church. B-BQ will be 
the main course for 2 days but to cut it down a little was suggested. Nobody is 
to bring plates, silverware, napkins, coffee cups, or sugar. There were 2 teas 
left. Sydney, Cindy, & Rhonda will be in charge of the games.

Craig made some dinosaur eggs for the small eggs. They were precious s it 
worked out real well as there were 4 of them & the Lunsfords, Moldens, Carlesons, 
& Morgans got one. 

James Hitchcock couldn't decide who was his mother Pam, Iris, or Ivy. 

This year's picnic was great. We brought Marlina Pierce down here from 
Breckenridge & she only enjoyed half as much as Bo & Rodney did. Rodney. 

Rachel & Clara enjoyed the picnic. Billy & Kasha did also. 

I love everyone & want to thank everyone for coming & working for a great 
year. Love the visit every year but not enought time to talk. Charlene. 

I think this has been one of the best & biggest picnics. I hope we can 
continue to have the love for one another to always get together as was started 
many years ago about 1940. Pam 

Peter & Jeffrey Herring were ready for the picnic s are already ready for 
the next one. Sure gonna miss all their kin folks til next year. 

John is always ready for Easter just a blowing & going. 

There were 72 immediate family members present throughout the weekend. There 
were about 41 family members no present. Maybe see them next year? 

I would like to thank Charlie, Thelma, & their family for the wonderful 
picnic area; all the cooks, & everyone who came to share tiem vi^ith one another. 
We also give ottTi thanks to Jack, Emmitt, s Browne for the Church Services.

Excerpts from Thelma 's 
letter. "We had a big 
good picnic 109 registered 
and guess what Pete & Jr. 
came Sun. about noon & told 
me they were here to see 
Lawson . 

All 9 children were represented 
this year. Red didn't come, 
but 4 of kids did. Louise, 
Jimmy, Judy and Don, and 
Betty Joyce came for Barrel. 
God surely blessed us: sure 
missed Lucille." 



The following names 
were oniitted from the list 
of people who attended the 
Cupps Family Picnic April 
2 and 3: Kenneth Sikes, 
Renee Covey, Emmett and 
Eunice Terry, Rodney

I hope everyone is enjoy- 
ing the spring weather, and 
have a nice weekend.

THE LEMES ARE 
WHOLE FAMILY 
OF SERVICEMEN 

Ralph T. Lemes of Lakeport 
is currently a member of the 
recently formed "Giants Pla- 
toon" of the U.S. Marine 
Corps, at their San Diego 
base. 

He is the son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Ralph Lemes, who ac- 
companied him to induction 
ceremonies recently in San 
Francisco which were held at 
the home plate of the Giants 
Stadium prior to a major 
league game which the induc- 
tees and their parents wit- 
nessed. 

Young Lemes' platoon dur- 
ing his training period will be 
in direct competition to a sim- 
ilar unit, the Dodgers, which 
was formed in Southern Cal- 
ifornia. The two training 
eroups will strive to outdo 
each other in all phases of 
their recruit training, a Mar- 
ine Corps spokesman stated. [ 

Two older brothers are also 
in the armed services. Ronald 
Lemes, who is the oldest, is 
an Air Force sergeant and in- 
structor at Biloxi, Miss. Jey 
R. Lemes is a staff sergeant 
in the Army, and is also an 
instructor at the Huntsville, 
Ala., base. 

Father of the boys is also a 
serviceman — Ralph Lemes, 
who retired from the Air 
Force in 1964 as a full col- 
onel, is now the owner of the 
Phillips 66 station on South 
Main Street. He was last sta- 
tioned at New Bedford, Mass., 
where he was in charge of el- 
ectronics programs.

SHE WAS A LADY 

BY WANDA 

Though Gramma has been dead twenty years, the glow of her memory is undi- 

mlshed. She touched us lightly, but the impact was terrific. She never lived 

in the past; her Interests lay in the present and the future. Were she here, 

she would be pinching pennies just in case a small space be made available 

on a moonship. 

If being a lady connotes worldly possessions, then Gramma wasn't one, 
but if one is measured by inner attributes, then she was indeed a lady of 
quality. In her own limited way, she even did that which was right. For her, 
a wrong just couldn't be twisted to look good. No amount of persuasion could 
change her. Her sole income was old age assistance, yet she would report each 
meager amount of money she received as gifts. To refrain from doing so, re- 
gardless of the consequences to her pitiable monthly check, would have smacked 
of rank dishonesty. She wasn't about to lose the innate pleasure of a gift to 
a thrashing, troubled conscience. 

Her total hours toiling in the hot, dusty fields would be considerable, 
yet to her the night was made for much needed rest. On hot, summer evenings 
she sat with her children on the front porch, telling them marvelous things 
about the stars, the Bible and history. Because of this, her children, though 
not highly educated, read extensively and had considerable reasoning power. 

She never ceased to be excited by knowledge. Newspaper clippings and 
magazine articles concerning new discoveries about space, archeology and the 
world in general were thoughtfully brought to her. As her black eyes excitedly 
devoured the information, she would murmur softly, "Oh my, oh my!" The space- 
age was in its infancy during her lifetime, but she truly believed men of 
vision would someday reach the moon. Now we watch men bolt into space on our 
television screens. We wish she were here to share this wondrous accomplishment 
of man-kind with us. 

When Gramma moved into town and had electricity, six relatives, unbeknownest 



245 



to each other, sent her an assortment of radios. She marvelled that sound could 
be carried on the a1r waves. She got carried away with one soap ooera in oarti- 
cular. It was about a ridiculous, silly man with a long suffering wife. She 
listened faithfully with irritable patience. With her silver, close-cropped 
head almost touching the softly-tuned radio, she would sit in motionless suspense. 
One afternoon we heard her muttering, "Damn fool!" Imagine our consternation and 
delight from one so strait-laced and proper! 

She was never Idle. When she grew tired, she didn't wait until a task was 
finished to relax. She would stop for fifteen minutes and be ready to resume 
her work, full steam ahead. She always had a small garden plot, a quilt on a 
quilt frame, cross-word puzzles to mull over and cast off magazines to read in 
odd moments. She read and took food to shut-in neighbors then obliging rubbed 
their tired, old backs If they were bed-fast. Before church, she walked the half 
mile to the small -town post office because she knew a newsy letter from her 
faithful daughter would be waiting. As her eyesight failed miserably, she used 
her donated quilt scraps to make tiny dresses for little doll -loving girls in 
children's homes. 

At eighty years of age, she began to grow frail. Two years later she died 
as she had lived -- quietly and with dignity. 

V/e went quietly to her rented room to gather her meager possessions. As we 
passed her tiny garden by the back door, we saw the turnips were crisp and 
green. We gathered them because we knew the waste would hurt if she knew. Inside 
the door, we saw a clean but happy clutter. V/e sadly began the final task of 
sorting her fist-full of possessions. There were seventy-six finished doll dresses 
by her open sewing machine. She had indeed been doing for others to the end. 

Knowing her Intent, we slowly oacked them as we unashamedly wept, and sent 
them where little g,irls without loving grammas live and olay.

Mrs. C. A. Kilmer ' 
Dies After 
Long Illness 

By MRS. A. L. ODER 

God's trumpets sounded at 
7:40 a. m. on Friday, December 
10, for Mrs. C. A. Kilmer, who

She had .been seriously 111 for 
about seven v/eeks and In failing 
health for a long time previous- 
ly. 

Much of her Illness was passed 
In the Santa Anna Hospital, 
where death claimed her. 

She also spent a part of the 
time In her apartment in my 
'home, where she had lived for 
,more than ISVz years. 
t Members of her family, old 
'neighbors and friends gave her 
every attention in her apart- 
ment, and assisted in her care at 
tTe'lAspltal. - 

Funeral services were held at 
2:00 p. m. on Saturday in the 
Hosch Funeral Chapel, with Ol- 
lle Cantwell, Church of Christ 
minister of Brownwood, of flclat- 

Mrs. Kilmer had been a mem- 
ber of the Church of Christ most 
of her life. . ' . ' 

Clara Ann " .Trowbridge was 
born M^ay 19, 1886 in Illinois, to 
Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Trowbridge. 
•They lived later. In Missouri and 
moved to Bosque County, Texas, 
when she was about 14 years old. 
She and her family came to

ber of years.

her. ... ( 

She could do almost any kind

considered, a man's or a wo- 
man's, -y 

— When heavier work was not

quilts or crochet. Her energy 
boundless. : » ;,, 
Of late years her hobby has 

ibaen to mjtke doll dresses in 
good style, for orphan's homes 
and other, organizations and for 
little girls, whose mothers do 
not like to majke doll dresses. 
She- had made about the usual 
number -the past faU, and they 
have been sent out. 

Life was not all work with Mrs. 
Kilmer. During her long life she 
had been a great reader and was 
much better informed than most

Dallas, Texas 
Fathers Day 1978 



Dear Loleeta and Ralph, 



It was such a pleasant surprise that you called me by 
telephone. I was surprised you had gotten my letter so soon 
after I mailed it. Thanks for your nice letter, I've enjoyed 
so much reading it. AJ ..o thanks for the picture copy. I suppose 
you meant for me to keep it. If so I will /rive it to our 
Daughter because her Brother has the original. We also enjoyed 
looking at the Sun City Activities Calendar. Rita liked it, but 
then she is getting old and more Civic minded J You two must live 
in a real retirement City. Anyway it seems there is never a dull 
moment. It's nice that everyone can stay busy. 

As you will find enclosed, I have mailed the original Uncle 
Charley letters to you. The first one (with the envelope) which 
was addressed to my late Grandmother, the other one was the 
answer to Grandads reply to the first one. NOW, before you get 
after me for taking a chance of getting them lost, let me explain. 
I haven't had any luck trying to copy them on a regular x-erox 
machine. Being so old and written in pencil they just will not 
copy. My only other choice was the off-set photo copier. The 
Printer won't set it up for less than fifty copies of each page 
plus fifty copies of the envelope, and the envelope is a story in 
itself. That seemed so expensive and I'm not sure they would be 
good copies. I sent the same origionals to Thelma to have copied. 
i didn't see her copies but I suppose she was happy with them. 
Anyhow I'm sending them to you so you can see about copies. If 
you don't mind I'm sending back your three georges because I 
didn't use them. OK? You are welcome to take the old letters and 
see if you can have successful copies made of them, then send 
them back or send me a copy of them. I inherited them from my 
Mother some years ago, and I have kept them only for posterity 
sake. They have now been around for forty years and I know they 
will do noone any good laying around in some ones chest of drawers 
waiting to be lost forever. My only desire is for them, along with 
their strange story, to become a part of the W. A. Trowbridge 
history. So do as you like about them, OK? 

If you don't mind hearing it, I may be able to add a little 
to the story of that first letter from Uncle Charley T. 
At the time Grandad Allison received the letter he was carrying the 
mail on the Trickham and Whon Rural Route. He had bid on, and was 
awarded tliat particular rur-al route contract previously on two 
consecutive one year terms, but was at that time delivering the 
mail on a three year contract for the Post Office Dept. Because of 
the way Uncle Charley had written Santa Anna, the letter had first 
gone to San Antonio. (Post mark on back of envelope) Then evidently 
some alert postal clerk had written in red ink, and I might add, in 
beautiful handwriting, Santa Anna, Texas. The Postmaster in Santa- 
Anna asked Grandad if the letter might be for him. He said he had 
a Brother-in-law named Charley Trowbridge but none of the family 
had any word about him in thirty years. Grandad took the letter but 
was reluctant to open and read it so carried it with him all day 
on his mail route. When he got back to Santa Anna that after noon 



2 94 



the Postmaster, an old friend of his Mr. Lee Woodward I believe, 
asked him about the letter. Grandad said he would let him know'the 
next morning. He took the letter home and asked his wife Lillie 
to open and read it, for somehow he just couldn't open and read 
it himself. We (our family) had left the farm in '36' and at that 
time (for a year) lived in Wichita Falls about a hundred and fifty 
miles from Santa Anna. Grandad wrote to Mother sending the letter 
and asking her what he should do. Mother helped him to write a 
reply to Uncle Charley, and of coarse the rest is history. He 
answered letters from other members of his family including the 
enclosed second letter he wrote to Grandad. I know of no other 
letters he may have written to Grandad Allison. If there were 
others Mother didn't get them or never mentioned them. 

My Mother had always clearly remembered her Mother Permelia 
giving Uncle Charley some folded pages from a writing tablet, as 
he was leaving Niwot, asking him to write to her. When my Mother 
saw that first letter she noticed the paper looked so o] d and 
yellowed around the edges that she always believed they were some 
of the same pages his Sister had given him thirty years before. 
Of coarse no one knows, but it could have been some of the same 
paper. The thing I have often thought of is the miracle that my 
Grandad got the letter at all. By the way it was addressed we 
surely have to give credit to some persistent postal clerks for 
helping get it to where it was intended. If it had of gotten lost 
or even sent back to Olympia, chances are that none of us would 
have ever known about Uncle Charley. What really happened to him 
could have always remained a mystery to his people. 1 say this 
because when your Grandmother and Aunt Clara went to see him, he 
had already passed away and the State was arranging to bury his 
body with State funds and had made no effort to notify any of his 
relatives. I understand his Sisters were told he only had about 
twenty dollars cash when he died. The authorities may have been 
truthful or, there may have been more money. They also found that 
he owned about forty acres of land with the shack he had lived in. 
They discovered there were considerable deliquent back taxes owed 
on the property, so not having the time and funds to try and keep 
it they let it revert back to the State. Who knows, that 40 acres 
might be worth a million dollars todayi Anyhow it all makes for 
an interesting true story. The truth is indeed stranger than fiction, 

You asked about the original pictures of the Reed Cupps _ fami ly . 
There were no dates on them, only the names my Mother had written 
on the backs. On the front, at the bottom, including the one of 
the copy you sent to me, was: CHAMBERS STUDIOS, SANTA ANNA, TEXAS. 
I know that was before my time. 

You mentioned about Uncle Silas and Aunt Myrtle Wagner being 
related on your Grandmother Spencer's side of the family. As I'm 
sure you know, my Daddy's elder Sister, Aunt Viola Perry married 
Hillard Thornton, Grandmother Wagner's eldest Son. So the two lerry 
Sisters married half Brothersl Uncle Hillard and Aunt Viola left 
Coleman County many years ago, before I can remember, and went to 
Rrawlev Calif Uncle Hillard was a Mortician so they established 
a'aier^l home business in Brawley which they operated many years 



295 



until they retired a few years apo . Aunt Viola made a few trips 
back to Texas to visit her people here but Uncle Hillard, as far 
as I know, only came back once and that was in the 20' s - 25 or 
26 1 believe it was. I was too younp; to remember about it. 
I had the p-ood fortune t.. ^et to visit with them at their home 
one time in 1943« As you know I was in the Navy, 19^3-^6. I was 
in the Navy Air Dept. so spent most of my service time flying. 
I had f fine through basic training at N.A.S. Astoria, Oregon with 
U.S. Naval Air Squadron VC 60. From there we (the squadron) were 
transfered to NAS Holtville, Calif, for four weeks of night flying 
(training). You can imagine griping and groaning we did from being 
cool rain-forest climate of the North-West corner of 




the squadron jeeps - you know, T sort of checked it out under 
•official business* to go the Marine Air Station at El Centre. 
But the ,]eep turned the wrong way and I wound up going north to 
Brawley to visit my Uncle and Aunt. I enjoyed a most pleasant visit 
with them all that afternoon, (ha, I never did locate that ficticous 
Marine Colonel at El Centre). I remember one of uncle Millard's 
favorite jokes was that in his profession he didn't have to worry 
much about do-it-yourself kits hurting his business. I also remem- 
ber that when T told them where I was stationed they both chuckled, 
then went on to explain they had a contract with the Navy to pick 
up and take care of any fatal casualties from Holtville NASI I 
laughed and said I hoped they didn't get my remains in their morgue, 
but Aunt Viola assured me that their contract had a clause stating 
they would not work on any relatives. Some consolation huh. 
They could tell many strange and weird stories of their undertaking 
career. She worked along with him in the business. They are still 
living there in Southern Calif. I know that Uncle Hillard has been 
in bad health for a long time and they must be around 90 years old 
by now. Aunt Viola was older than my Dad. After they retired they 
often thought of moving back to Texas. I suppose it was through 
Aunt Myrtles persistence, but at one time they even arranged to 
buy a place in Santa Anna but something happened that it never 
materialized. I'm sure if they ever really wanted to move back to 
Texas that they just waited till it was too late. Aunt Viola wasn't 
able to make the trip when Aunt Myrtle died and I often wander about 
them because they have no living children. My Cousin Nila, Uncle 
Gordon Perry's oldest Daughter, used to look in on them when she 
and her Husband Jeff lived in southern Calif, but they now live near 
her Mother, Aunt Gladys Perry, in Doublin, Texas. It seems so sad 
for people to grow old without children around to care for their 
well being. 

I just thought of another little true story about our Grandpa 
W.A. and my Grandad Allison. I remember it pretty much in detail 
because I've heard my Grandad tell it many times. I'll tell it as 
best I can remember. Back somewhere around the turn of the century, 
I can't recall what year, perhaps Bertha Spence would know. Aunt 
Clara Kilmer and family lived in Oklahoma (Indian Territory).

those days must have taken months. Anyhow on the way back to Niwil 
It seems they had encountered bad weather between ?ortSorth and 
Stephenville. plus I'm sure his team was weary and they were all 
travel weary, so Grandpa wrote a letter to Grandad Allison (hi ^ 

^h^'r r ^^k'"^ ^^'" "^^ "■^^'^^ °"^ i" ^'^ ^^^°" and come to meet 
them to help them get home. Tellie prompl y hitched his best team 
to the best wagon and took off alone toward StephenvHle. He went 
thru Brownwood then Comanche and a few miles north of Comanche? 
where the Leon River crosses highway US67 , he spotted them stranded 
and camped because of high flood waters from the recent rains 
There was a bridge across the river channel but about a half mile 
north of the river is a depression whore over flowing water was 
running wide and swift. Grandad, being the young 'showoff that he 
was, decided to try going across with the team and wagon. He later 
would say he didn't stop to realize tha : Grandpa W.A. would not 
have risked the crossing with all those Children and belongings ' 
until the water had receded to a safe level, and he was iust as 
well off on the other side, so off into the water he drove! He 
reached the middle where the water was so swift, up to the wagon 
bed, that the team could barely manage the situation. At that 
moment a long drifting log came down stream and lodged squarely on 
the end of the wagon tongue just in front of the horses! For a 
long anxious moment while everyone held their breath they waited 
to see if the log would swing toward the wagon, which surely meant 
everything would be swept down the gorge, or would it swing and 
drift free in front of them. Finally it slowly swung out in front 
of the horses and drifted free, but it had been a close call. 
Grandad often said that when he pulled up to their wagon if the 
old man had said, "well, lets get started", he would have declined 
by Eayinj5, go ahead, I'll wait untill the water goes down a bit. 
A few hours later they all went on toward Niwot and made the rema- 
inder of the trip withuot further incident. 

I have driven down highway 6? by that spot many times and I 
never pass by there without thinking of that true story. What 
always fascinated me most about the story was that Grandpa wrote 
a letter in Stephenville which is only about 80 miles from Santa 
Anna. Now days one can easily drive it in an hour and a half. 
Most of it is divided four lane highway. The Santa Fe railroad 
runs between Sthephenville and Santa Anna and in those days that 
was the only mode of travel which made any good time. The mail 
always traveled quickly. 

As I'm sure you know. Grandpa Trowbridge founded the town 
of Niwot, Texas. There was a general store, a Post office and a 
barber shop. Grandpa T. was the Postmaster, other members of the 
family operated the store and Grandad Tellie operated the barber 
shop for several years. The records in the Texas archives in 
Austin tells of it. 1 looked it all up one time when I was there. 
We often wandered where Grandpa got the name Niwot. I suppose no 
one knows for sure, but from what I could lenrn, the general con- 
sensus of opinion is that it came from an old Indian word meaning, 
•near water' . 



297 



I roamed around the grounds, where Niwot once stood, many 
times when I was growing up. The only things left there that I 
recall, were; the rock and mortar round top of an old under 
ground water sistern, which is gone now, and a couple of old oak 
trees. To me it always seemed a little sad that a little town- 
ship could flourish, then suddenly die. How.ver we all know that 
in the early pioneer days towns usually lived or died dependir^g 
on where the railroads were built. Thats what happened to 
Trickham, the oldest town in Coleman County. The railroad was 
built through San La Anna J 

The old W.B.Allison place (of which Niwot was once at the 
north-east corner) still belongs to a descendant of the Allison's. 
My Great Grandfather W.B. Allison bought the 32o acres in I879 for 
$1.50 per acre. When he and Great Grandmother died in 1935. just 
nine days apart, half of the place (south 160 aci-es) was deeded 
to Dr. T.Richard Sealy who had cared for them during their long 
illness. This v/as done to pay the Dr. and hospital, bills plus 
the burial expences. The north 160 acres was inherited by the 
eight Allison heirs, twenty undivided acres each. The State would 
not allow it to be officially divided. Through the years my Great 
Aunt Mollie Allison Nabcurs-Hnyr -Cochran gradualy, through hook 
and crook, acquired all the I60 acres. When she died a few years 
ago it went to her only living Son, Wilber Nabours who is a retired 
rancher in Oklahoma. 

The old Allison place hasn't been worked in 30 years so the 
once little cultivated fields have grown up in mesquite brush. 
I used to love to go there just to roam around in the fresh 
country air by retracing my many footsteps I made there since I 
can remember, and also reminisce the many fond memories I have of 
those days gone by. I suppose those were signs of getting old. 

You said something in your letter about Bertha Spence. By 
coincidence she was here just last week! She flew from Calif, to 
visit with Rodney, Joyce and family. Rodney and I see each other 
often, and he had told me his Mother was comming out for a weeks 
visit. So last Saturday, the day before your Birthday, I drove to 
Grand Prairie where they live, just a few miles from here, and 
had a most delightful visit with Bertha and all of them. Bertha 
read the Uncle Charley letters and told little interesting stories 
of him and Grandpa T. I enjoyed it so much. Now I wish I had 
thought to ask Bertha if she knew what year it was when Grandpa T 
went to Oklahoma to fetch her Mother and family back to Texas. 
Bertha is 87 years old. 

You spoke of my old wartime wounds. Well that has been Jk 
years ago and they won't be any better, but I long ago learned 
that a person can make the best of most anything. When I first 
left the Service 1 had a bit of that, feel sorry for myself atti- 
tude, and often thought; now why did this have to happen to me? 
Why me have to be a cripple for life? Then in 19^7 I had an opper- 
tunity to go overseas while working for the Government. I worked 
overseas for three years 19^t)f-^9-50. Most of that time 1 was on 
Guam and in the Philippine Islands. While I was over there I had 



2 98 



opportunity to, and did, make working tours all over the far 
East. I went to .Japan, China, India, Pakastan, Siam, many of the 
Islands and even 'down under' to Australia and New Zealand. 
I saw all that part of our world as a civilian traveling on a 
passport, and I learned many things. I was once and for all 
convinced of how much our dear ole U.S. of America means to me. 
When we stopped in Hawaii on the way home I remember how beauti- 
ful it looked to me again. When I arrived back home 1 made a 
promise to myself I would never again grpie about my little mis- 
fortunes because I was so fortunate to have been born in the 
greatest coi^intry on earth. My whole outlook on this short life 
was changed and I have been able to do pretty good by thanking 
my maker for, and counting, my many blessings through the years. 
Real life has it's disappointments and heartaches but I simply 
have no room to gripe about misfortune. 

Rita and I are not wealthy by any standards, we just meet 
our obligations and manage to live comfortable, but in many ways 
we feel we are some of the i-ichest people in the world. We have 
so many things to be thankful for. Health, happiness, good 
Children, good relatives, good friends and to live in a country 
with the freedom to go and to do whatever whenever we desire. 
Many of our friends had told us that when our Children grew up 
and 'flew the coop', so to speak, we would be lonely in this big 
ole house alone. I'm happy to say that in our case nothing has 
been furthekr from the truth. We have enjoyed being alone again. 
We have been free to pursue our interests and hobbies and to 
roam around some in our later years. Our Children live within 
about four blocks of one another which is about a mile from us. 
They all have good jobs and they are healthy and happy, so what 
more could we ask? This is the old nest to them, so they pop in 
and out now and then during each week. They all seem to have that 
sense of seeing about Mom and Dad, so Rita and I are living it up. 
We have taken advantage of a freedom that many people dream about. 
When we decide to go to the Coast (Texascoast) for a few days, or 
maybe to Ohio and Michigan or wherever, we call the Kids and say, 
"feed the old cat now and then for us, we will be gone for a few 
days". Thats all there is to it. We are now known to our Kids and 
friends as, 'gad abouts'.We like itl 

I,o]eeta I'm sorry that I have probably bored you with this 
long letter (book) I have written. 1 rarely write a personal 
letter any more, but this morning I arose with the urge to write 
a letter to some one. Besides I am trying to prove to you that I 
can answer a letter sooner than two years like the first one you 
wrote to me. I'm just glad that some one has undertaken the time 
and patience to carry on with the tradition of the Trowbridge 
family history. I thank you fo.r working at at, for I have always 
been proud that I am a descendant of the Trowbridge tamily. 
I know it has been rewarding to yoii as you uncover more and more 
about long lost relatives, even ones in your and my generation. 
Keep up the good work and when some day you compile, in book form, 
any so?t of I recent history, let me in on it if I may. flow me 
?o'pe?haps purchase some copies of ^-^^^f ' "f .^J^^^know 
me but for my Children. At least I can tell them I dont know 



?qq 



where they are g^oing but I can show them where they came from. 

It was mentioned that Ralph was into Lapidary work and 
Silvercraft. I just happen to think that Rita has an Uncle, a 
retired school teacher, who lives in Ohio near her Daddy that 
does some T;apidary work as a hobby. He has made a lot of pretty 
jewelry most of which he cut from his own stone collection of 
which some are quiet rare and valuable. Rita has a few pieces 
of jewelry he has made and given tvO her. Lapidary along with 
Silver smithing, which T would suppose go hand in hand, are 
surely fascinating hobbies. 

A few days ago I was rummaging through some of my Mother's 
old things and I ran across a couple of old poems I wrote and 
sent to her many years ago. I thought I would send a copy of one 
of them to you since it is along the line of these family hist- 
ories we have been talking about. You can read it and toss it 
out if you like. I don't, it has any real meaning to anyone 
anymore. .<a*-]>y'^'«^ 

Write to us any time you like and can find time. Tell us 
more about yourselves and your family. 

By the way, "Happy Birthday y belated, but none the less 
Sincere. 



Our best regards to all of you. 



Love ,

ty located south and east of Santa 
Anna. 

First comers were U. S. Army 
personnel, Texas Rangers and 
:attlemen, for the story of Cole- 
nan County is closely associated 
with the cattle industry. 
Created in 1858. 
The county v, as created by the 
Legislature in 1858 from Brown 
»nd Travis Counties and named 
for Robert M. Coleman, who 
lught in the battle of San Ja- 
to. 

lom in Kentucky, Coleman

§cr coaipont. Lntrf he *as 

pide to Gen. 6am Houston. 

signed the Texas Declaration 

ndependence and was a mem- 

of the Texas constitutional 

JCnvention. 

The county was laid out in 
1856 by a party of surveyors led 
by J. E. McCord. 

In 1855 and 1856 a few families 
bad settled in the southeastern 
edge of Coleman County and 
from 1856 until 1861 enjoyed the 
protection of the frontier fort of 
Camp Colorado. The Army post 
first was located six miles south 
of the Colorado River, on the 
road from Fort Belknap to Fort 
Mason; but later was re-estab- 
lished, within the county limits 
on -Jim Ned Creek. 

Rtplica of its administration 
buildirig was erected in Coleman 
City Park in 1936 by the Federal 
and Texas Centennial Commis- 



sions, the Works Progress Ad- 
ministiation.flnd the City of Cole- 
man. 

Maj. Earl Van Dorn command- 
ed the camp, which once was in- 
spected by Robert E. Lee, when 
the future commander in chief 
of the Confederate Army was a 
U. S. colonel stationed at Fort 
Sam Houston. 

Practical J«ker. 

The county's first white settle- 
ment became the town now 
known as Trickham. It was a 
stopover on John Chisum's cattle 
trail to New Mexico, and Chisum 
caUbUshad a £tqr$ there for his 
trail drivers. 

This store was operated by 
E mnry PeiATt. G«orge Teague 
and Bill Franks. 

Franks was a practical joker 
and because of his pranks the 
community was known to cow- 
hands as "Trick 'Em." One of 
Franks' favorite trijcks was to 
sell bottles of water to the cow- 
boys for whisky. 

Franks, who liked the name, 
spelled it "Trickum" and Bsed 
it in applying for a postoffice. 
But postal authorities decided it 
ought to be Trickham. 

Chisum sold the store to L. L. 
Shield, who operated it until it 
was destroyed by fire in 1892. 

Other early settlers around 
Trickham were John, Enoch and 
Dick Fiveash, Charlie Shield. Bud 
Boles, Martin and Jim McElreath 
and Mr. and Mrs. H. R. Bingnam. 

Bingham is said to have rid- 
den the first train from Missi-

rodeo queen, adjusts bon- 
net of Mrs. Eula Cox Nor- 
wood of ColBhian, named 
queen of the Coleman 
County centennial j 

sippi to Fort Worth in 1876. His 
daughter, Mrs. Beulah Kings- 
ton. 78. still lives in Trickham. 
A pioneer business man there 
was M. R. Cheatham, a miller, 
reputed to be the first to sell 
flour in sacks, rather than bar- 
rels. His sacks were labeled 
"Trickham's Best." 

Known for Chief. 

Santa Anna, then known as 
"The Gap," because of its loca- 
tion between the two Santa Anna 
mountains, may have been Cole- 
man County's second trading post 
Among its early settlers were 
Duke Jackson, Lewis Taylor, 
Henry H. Brown. W. J. and Tom 
Crosby. Bill Brannan. Frank and 
Miles Wofford and the Atterbury 
and McGonagill families. 

Oldtimers claim the mountains 
were named for the Kiowa chief, 
Sfltanta. c.-xi Ih-at the town wni 
named for the peaks but the Post- 
office Department, which seem- 
ed always to pioneer orthography, 
edited the name into its present

form before granting it the privi- 
lege of a postoffice. 

Santa Anna went on a boom 
early in 1886, when the Santa Fe 
Railway reached that poinL 
Many Trickhani settlers and busi- 
ness men moved to Santa Anna 
and the town moved out of the 
gap south of the west mountain. 
The Santa Anna News was es- 
tablished by Con Rowland in 1886. 
Successive o w n e r b included 
Charlie Spann. Will Hubert, Aus- 
tin CaDan and George Faulkner. 
Faulkner sold it in 1920 to J. J. 
Greggs, father of John C. Gregg, 
its present publisher. 

Coleman County was not or- 
I ganized until 1876, but a tenta- 
tive organization, with Camp 
Colorado as county seat, was at- 
tempted in 1867. First regular 
county officers were: Judee J. F. 
Miles, Clerk L. C. Williams, 
Sheriff L. D. Greaves, Treasurer 
S. S. Golson, Hide and Animal 
Inspector W. B. grown. Tax As- 
sessor Ed Lodge, Jusuce oi me 
Peace M. M. Callan, who als« 
was Coleman's first postmaster, 
handling the mail at his home; 
Surveyor R. S. Bowen and Com- 
missioners Rich Coffej-, G. K. 
Elkins, L. L. Shield and R. M. 
JRucker. , , .. .

'the county, with E. A. Lindsay, 
J. F. Gordon and F. M. and Dick 
Boyen. laid out the Coleman cit?

tin's street plan. . ' 

McCord, who came here from 
Austin, later setUed on Home

I Oldest Business. 

' Part of the Coleman townsite 
I was donated by R. J. Clow, a 
veteran of the Texas revolution. 
The courthouse and high school 
were built on land he donated. 

Coleman's first newspaper, the 
Telegraph, was founded by W. 
L Gibbs in 1877. but it did not 
last long. The Voice was esUb- 
lished by J- J- Callan in 1881 and 
the Democrat by WiU'Hubert m 
1887 They were merged in 1907 
into' the Democrat-Voice, now 
published by R. A. Autry and his 
sons, Milton and Roy Jr. . 
Possibly the city's oldest busi- 
uess, sST is -'is cri!)Tial Joca- 
uon7 is the saddle shop establish- 
ed by W. P. Rascoe in 18T7. It 
was bought by J. H. Nance in 
1902 and is now owned and oper- 
ated by his son, B. A. Nance. 

The oldest natives of Coleman 
County include Mrs. Zona Stacy, 
80 of Trickham, and J. M. Elk- 
ins. 79, and Press McCord of 
Coleman. , , 

Thousands of cattle moved 
through Coleman County in the 
trail days. 

In addition to its place on the 
old John Chisum trail, "Coleman 



County lay astride the "new 
western" or "Dodge trail." which 
was blazed in the 1870s from 
Brownsville via San Antonio and 
Fort Mason to Dodge City, Kan. 
It often was confused later with 
the Jesse Chisholm Trail from 
the Rio Grande to Abilene, Kan. 
It has been claimed the west- 
ern trail carried more cattle 
north than the Chisholm trail did. 
There's a marker on its on the 
Coleman courthouse lawn, set up 
in 1925 by the Daughters of the 
American Revolution. 

Driven Returned. 

Two of the trail drivers return- 
ed to Coleman County to estab- 
lish ranches. J. P. Morris, after 
four successful drives to Canada, 
eventually acquired 60,000 or 
more acres, still owned by his 
family. .A daughter, Mrs. J. A. 
B. Miller, 84, of Coleman, is a 
business, civic and social lead- 
er. Two other daughters are 
Mrs. E. L. Knox of Burkett and 
Mrs. Mary Dunman of Novice. 

Day, a native of Missouri, was 
the first to buy land in the coun- 
ty, although it was then open 
range. Leaday is located on land 
for which he paid 45 perils an 
acre. He is credited with build- 
ing the first fence and starting 
the first herd of Hereford cattle 
in the county. .^^ 

He fenced 7.500 acres in 1881 
and called it the Red Wire Pas- 
ture, because the fence was paint- 
ed red. He was killed in a stam- 
pede in 18S1 and his widow oper- 
ated the ranch for many years. 

Other pioneers were H R. 
Starkweather, who fenced 40.000 
acres: C. -M. Grady, Noah Arm- 
strong, John Banister, W. B. Bev- 
ins, CoL R. H. Overall, who set- 
tled on a 30,000-acre spread 
south of Coleman; C. E. Jones, 
Henry Sackett, the Coffeys, Per- 
kinses, Closes, Coulsons and John 
Watts. 

Bit of Coleman history is con- 
tributed by the town of Whon, 
south of Trickham. It was 
named for a Mexican named 
Juan who worked on the farm of 
John McCain. When a postof- 
fice was applied for by Mrs. Sam 
McCain in 1903, she spelled Juan's 
narpe Whon, because that -was 
the wav it sounded to her. For 
once, postal authorities let the 
name stand.- 

As a part of the centennial pro- 
gram, the Coleman County Rodeo 
issociation, of which Rob Hair 
I» president, scheduled its 21 st 
annual show here for July 9-12. 
There will be a paraoe at S p m.

ernor Daniel, the centennial

rodeo queen. Kay K^gsben;. 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. b. 



KingsDery of Santa Anna.

ton, M. B. Casey, Robert Jame- 
son. Lee Craig, Doyle Glasson,
