DAVID TROWBRIDGE

From" The History of Morris County New Jersey, Volume II", Lewis Publishing Co., 1914

"...David Trowbridge, who was born in Morris county, New Jersey, of ancient and honorable New Jersey pioneer  stock, who helped subdue the Indians, conquer the wilderness, erect homes, cultivate farms, establish cities and  bring about law and order, making the State one of the most advanced in the union. He was a prosperous  farmer and at the time of his death had a large estate. He was one of the public spirited men of his day, being  the first to advocate and support all measures for the advancement of his town, county, and State. He lived and  died in Morris Plains, at the age of sixty-four, his death being universally regretted. In his young manhood he  married Nancy Lindsley,in Morris county, who, like himself, was an old, long established and highly respected  family of New Jersey. She outlived him by many years, and died at the age of seventy-two, in Boonton."
