Ionia Daily Sentinel-Standard, Fri., January 14, 1921

Carrie L. Trowbridge nee Dodson was born in Wayne County, Ohio March 11, 1847. Departed this life January 4, 1921 at the age of 74 years, 9 months and 23 days.

Her parents moved to Indiana when she was about eight years of age, then to Michigan when she was about seventeen. She was married to George E. Trowbridge when she was twenty two and most of the time since has resided in Ronald Township, Ionia County, Mich., on a farm. Mr. and Mrs. Trowbridge were the parents of 12 children; two of whom died in infancy. the rest are living. Six boys Forest, Edwin, George, Floyd, Clyde, and Ross. Four girls, Mrs. Fremont Blystone, Mrs. D. J. Heath, Mrs. Archy Howard and Mrs. S.J Marrs.

She was converted when about 20 years of age and entered the United Brethren church near her home at that time about __ years ago. Through struggles and trials has been faithful to Christ and the church of her choice ever since.

Ross, the youngest son as soon as he was discarged from the U.S. Service in France, came home and immediately started in to help his father and mother on the farm. His father was killed by being thrown from a load of grain, in the bundle in the first week of Sept., 1919. Since then he has lived with his mother and has done what he could to lighten her load and care for her.

Her last sickness was lingering and others of her children came and did all that loving human hands could do to relieve her suffering. Near the close of her sickness she sang over and over again, the hymn, "Oh that Will be Glory to Me." Truly a noble woman has gone from our midst. A loving mother , a kind neighbor and good citizen.

The funeral was held at the Baptist Church in Palo. Rev. J. Potter of Carson City officiating and the body was laid to rest in the Palo Cemetery beside her husband.
