|SYLVANUS TROW, of Oregon, was born in Brooklyn, Green County, October 20, 1852. His parents, Edward and Sarah (Evans) Trow, natives of Wales, came to America in 1845 and settled in Brooklyn where he and his wife spent the remainder of their lives, and where both died. Of their family, five sons and one daughter survive them.
The subject of this sketch received his education in the district schools of Brooklyn and followed his father’s occupation of farming.
He remained on his father’s farm, assisting in its management until he was thirty years of age; then he married Miss Catherine Darkin, January 28, 1882, and removed to Albany where he lived twelve years.
In 1869 he moved to the town of Oregon and in 1901 settled on the farm on one hundred and ten acres, which he now owns. This he runs for dairying, stock raising and general farming.
Mrs. Trow was born December 10, 1853, in England, and is the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Candler) Darkin, both of whom lived and died in England, where Mrs. Trow still has two sisters living. She came to this country in 1880 and two years later married Mr. Trow. They have six children, Edward, Jr., born in Brooklyn; Nina Laura, Nora Edna, Nellie May and Maud Amy all born in Albany, and Orville Earl, born in Oregon township.
Mr. Trow is a Republican, a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of Oregon village and belongs to the fraternal society, Knights of the Globe. His children have all received their education in the schools of Oregon Village, and one son is taking the short course in agriculture in the city of Madison.
