1219. Edwin Guy Trowbridge (Edwin G.1107, James1049, William1022, James1010, William1004, James1000, Thomas1), born October 19, 1873, in Hancock, Mich.; resides in Medford, Ore.; married July 17, 1894, in Sheboygan Falls, Wis., Emily Marguerite Hertzberg, daughter of Otto and Emily (Hartman) Hertzberg, born August 24, 1876, in Sheboygan Falls.
Edwin G. Trowbridge remained at home and attended the schools in his native town until he was sixteen years old, when he began to serve his apprenticeship at the machinist's trade. During this latter period his parents removed to Sheboygan Falls, Wis., and after serving his time he went to his parents' home there and attended the Sheboygan Business College. After receiving his diploma he
went in 1893 to Camas Valley, Ore., where ho and his brother Benjamin opened a general merchandise store. Four months later he returned to Wisconsin to be married and then began housekeeping in Camas Valley.
Not being suited with the country, at the end of fourteen months he sold out his interest in the business to his brother and returned to Sheboygan Falls. Six months later he removed to Hancock, Mich., where he became foreman of the machine shop of the Atlantic mine. He held that position two years and then went to Marinette, Wis., and worked there for the Marinette Gas Engine Company, until that firm moved to Chicago Heights, Ill., when he went with them as foreman in their machine shop, remaining in that position until March, 1905. He then came to Medford, Ore., his present residence, and bought the Medford Iron Works, which he has since conducted with success.
