      Elihu Trowbridge was a soldier in the Revolution. He enlisted April 20,
      1775, from Hatfield, MA, as a private in Capt. Israel Chapin's
      company, Col. John Fellow's regiment, and was discharged October 8, 1775.
      He re-enlisted January 1, 1776, in Cambridge, MA, in Capt.
      Samuel Hunt's company, Colonel Ward's regiment, MA Line. He
      was chosen in February, 1776, as one of General Washington's Life Guard,
      as sergeant under Captain Gibbs, and continued in that service about nine
      months. He was appointed a second lieutenant in Samuel Granger's company,
      2nd Connecticut Regiment, Col. Charles Webb, January 1, 1777. He resigned
      December 4, 1777. In January, 1778, he was appointed a captain of marines
      on board of the frigate Warren, commanded by John Hopkins, where he
      served until she was destroyed at Penobscot some time in March, 1779. He
      then was on leave of absence from the Marine Committee, of which Samuel
      Adams was president, until peace was declared. After leaving the army he
      followed the trade of pump making. He lived in Earl, Lancaster county,
      Pa., Derby Landing, Conn., and Washington, Conn., returning in his old
      age to his native place, where he died. He drew a pension for a few years
      prior to his death.
