During the War of 1812 he offered his professional services to the government. He was appointed by Col. Salem Towne surgeon's mate in the 2nd Regiment of Light Troops, Massachusetts militia, and served in that capacity at South Boston from September 20 to November 1, 1814.
    Note: US Pension Office Records: Under the Act of March 3, 1855, his son Edwin, then a minor, received at the age of 21 a warrant for 160 acres of land for his father's services in the war.

About 1839 he moved with his family to Girard, Erie county, PA, and then to Ohio, where he lived for a short time in Kingsville, Ashtabula county, and then in Perry, Lake county. In 1842 he removed with his family to Spring Prairie, Walworth county, Wisconsin where he died four years later. After the death of Doctor Trowbridge, his widow returned with her children to her old home in the state of New York, where she subsequently remarried.
