From the Rutland Daily Herald, March 11, 1895:
Alpheus S. Trowbridge, Mrs. W.P. Cady's father, died at Mrs. Cady's home on Morse place yesterday. Mr. Trowbridge was 73 years old and had lived in Rutland for about a year. He came from Florida here. The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock.


Alpheus Smith Trowbridge, born September 4, 1821, in Newark, N. Y.; died March 10, 1895, in Rutland, Vt.; married January 15, 1846, in Sodus, N.Y., Ann Isabella Fellows, daughter of John Nicholas and Mariah (Coleman) Fellows, born November 5, 1825, in Livingston Manor, N.Y. She resides in Chicago, Ill.

Alpheus S. Trowbridge followed the occupation of farming all his life. He settled after his marriage near the village of Newark in his native town, Arcadia, N.Y. In 1855 he moved to Clinton Junction, Wis., and in 1860 to Janesville, Wis. He enlisted in the Civil War September 14, 1861, for three years or during the war, in Company A, 13th Wisconsin Infantry. He acted in the capacity of hospital nurse the greater part of his time of service, and was greatly beloved by the sick and dying, ministering not only to their bodily needs, but also to their spiritual welfare. He was promoted August 24, 1864, to be second lieutenant of Company L, 1st Wisconsin Heavy Artillery, but, on account of failing health, he only served with that command for three months and was discharged January 30, 1865.

Mr. Trowbridge removed in 1868 to St. James, Minn., which was then the frontier, and took a homestead near that town. While living there he held the office of justice of the peace. He was unable to endure the hardships of frontier life and, therefore, in 1881 he left his farm and went to Minneapolis, where two of his daughters resided at that time. In 1888 he decided to try the South for the sake of his health, and he located in Lawtey, Fla. He died while on a visit at the home of his youngest daughter in Rutland, Vt. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and served as class leader, trustee and Sunday school superintendent. He was loyal to his church and led the life of a Christian.
