Report of an interview with Mrs. Amsden by Allan Lincoln Truax:
"She corroborates the story of 'Yelles' skating across Franklin Pond, Vt. on his 100th birthday, says the 'young folks' let him beat them across just to please his vanity. Also told about bear he tamed. Says they would entertain him free of charge at the Farnham P.2 fair and the Franklin Co. Vt. fair just for the stories he would tell. Once while at the Farnham Fair he overstayed the limit of his ticket and his friends feared he couldn't get back. He said he would show them. When the conductor came around to collect tickets and told 'Yelles' his ticket was n.g., the latter began to jabber at him in Holland Dutch. Of course no one could understand him. They sent for a Frenchman and he could understand Yelles' jabberings no better, so finally the conductor said 'Oh well, let the old fool ride. He's crazy anyway', and so he gor back to Franklin."

Col. Abraham Caleb Truax died on 24 June 1844 at Detroit, Wayne Co., MI; in an explosion of the steamer 'Vance'.
He served under Gen. Hull in War of 1812 (U.S.).
In 1809, Abraham C. Truax came to Detroit. He operated a prosperous business on West Jefferson near Woodward. He was a member of the Territorial Militia and was in attendance when General Hull surrendered Detroit to the British in 1812. Truax made his escape and returned to his hometown of Schenectady, New York. He returned in a year to restart his business, and in 1834, Truax founded the village of Truaxton, later renamed Truago, and today is the downriver City of Trenton. Truax was killed in 1844 when the steamer Vance exploded at the dock in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The first county owned park in the State of Michigan is located in Trenton. The land was given to the Wayne County Road Commission by descendants of Truax and the park is named for Truaxís grand daughter, Elizabeth.
In 1848, there were only 6 framed houses in town, the rest were log cabins. The chief industry was a limestone quarry owned by an early Detroit businessman and judge named Soloman Sibley. Stone from this quarry was used for the fort and other buildings in Detroit. The quarry was later purchased by the Church family and the limestone was make into baking soda for the family business, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Later, Austin Church would venture into automotive manufacturing, when in 1912, he introduced the Church-Field Electric at the Detroit Auto Show. The car came in 2 models, a coupe and a roadster. The roadster sold for $2200.00, and the coupe $2800.00. It claimed a range of nearly 100 miles per charge, and a top speed of just over 20 miles per hour. The car was short-lived and the company was out of business by 1913.
The area had fine stands of timber in large forests, and soon became a shipbuilding center. The Alvin Clark is the first documented ship to be launched at Trenton in 1846. There is some evidence there were earlier ships constructed and launched. Shipbuilding reached its peak in the 1860ís, and continued until the 1880ís. Here were set forth some of the finest schooners, steamers and propellers to sail the Great Lakes. The Turner Shipyard and the Craig Shipyard were the principal shipbuilders. Many of the townspeople worked at the shipyards and many left town with John Craig when he moved his shipyard to Toledo, Ohio in the late 1880ís. The town was home to many Great Lake ship captains. Captain Arthur Edwards would found the Detroit and Cleveland Steamboat Company that lasted until the 1950ís. Captain Dana would perfect the davit that is used to raise and lower boats. For over 100 years there was some form of shipbuilding in town and ended when the Liggett Boat Works closed in the mid 1960ís. Many of the people connected to shipbuilding spent time during the Civil War building ships, docks, depots and warehouses for the Union at Bridgeport, Alabama. Company I of the Fort Michigan was named the "Trenton Volunteers".
Trentonís start was simply because of its location. It was the last high ground from Detroit to Monroe, and a dayís journey from Detroit, an overnight stop. It has fine stands of oak and other timber used in shipbuilding, and something not to be overlooked, a protected shoreline from the ravages of Lake Erie. It became a commerce center and with the commerce came a need for transportation. Shipbuilding and ships would be later replaced by railroads. Horse and buggies replaced by cars. The worldís first traffic lines appeared in Trenton in 1911, a result of many sideswiping accidents that occurred on narrow bridges that were located on River Road (West Jefferson) just south of town. In the early 1890ís, Trenton got electric lights, and also, a waterworks. Street signs went up in 1896. The fire department started in 1898. In 1900, Trenton built its first high school and started an emphasis on education that continues. Trenton was home to Don Dickinson, Postmaster General under President Cleveland. Dickinson County in the Upper Peninsula is named after him. Trentonís rural postal delivery began in 1906, with Alvin Knight, and door-to-door started in 1925, with Bill Rushlow. An automotive industry started in 1912 continues and Trenton oldest business/industry, the quarry, started in the early 1800ís continues as well. The first A & W Root Beer stand in Michigan started in 1935, and today operates on the same site. In 1927, Trenton annexed the Village of Sibley. In 1957, Trenton became a city. Trenton became part of the World Wide Web in 1997, when the city's first Internet Service Provider, I-Link International, created and hosted the City of Trenton Web Site.
