ELIPHALET AUGUSTUS TROWBRIDGE

Native of Morris Co., New Jersey. Emigrated to Licking Co., Ohio and settled in Fallsbury Township, where he cleared up a quarter-section of land. The township was at this time a dense forest and filled with wild beasts and Indians. He was a man of unusually strong will, and pushed through any project once begun with a resolute determination. He was very industrious and frugal; very systematic in his business, and provided well for the wants of his home. His family was a well ordered one, the members of which were very warmly attached to each other.
