David Trine Photo
I was wondering where that picture came from. I assumed it was from a professional publication, but I was thinking perhaps Oregon State University. It looks somewhat like a faculty photo. Right now I am working with two different archives who have "rediscovered" his papers. While none of my Trine or Burgess people from Springport are "famous" some of them had interesting lives. Emanuel Trine and David Urias Trine, also buried in Springport, were with the first company of men who went over the breech, ending the long battle and siege at Petersburg. There is even a monument marking the occasion. David Winfield Trine started the Agricultural schools at Oregon, and the same has been rumored to be true at Michigan State (although the school will not confirm or deny this.) Now I just want to post what photos I have, along with biographies, just so things are not lost to history. Deb Hayes-Wolfe has helped me just post several biographies today.
Thanks for taking an interest.
