First headmast of Parsonsfield Academy, Maine.

TRUFANT, GROSS, MARSH (Oxford Twp., pp. 549-550) Professor Isaiah TRUFANT, of Oxford,
OH, was born in Harpeswell, ME, the 18th of Dec, 1831. His father, William C. TRUFANT, was a descendant of an English family of that name, the earliest American history of whom locates them at Hingham, MA, in 1635 or 1636. The elder TRUFANT died in 1879. The mother, Lucy Rich TRUFANT, who had also an English ancestry, was born in 1813, & is still living as a hale & well-preserved woman at Harpeswell, ME. In boyhood Mr. TRUFANT enjoyed the privileges of the common schools of the town, after which he entered the Maine State Seminary at Lewiston. After leaving this school he was engaged in teaching occasionally until he was 25 years old, when he entered Bowdoin College. Here he remained the next four years, pursuing the full prescribed curriculum of the college, & graduating with the full honors of his class. It had been the expectation & intention of Mr. TRUFANT to have entered the profession of law, but circumstances drew him into engagements as a teacher soon after leaving college, & the Fall of 1863 found him in care of Somerset Academy, in Athens, ME. In the following Spring he was prostrated with a severe attack of typhoid fever, & was obliged to relinquish teaching for a time. Jan 17, 1865, he was united by marriage to Miss Sarah R. GROSS, whose home was in Brunswick, ME. The following Summer he accepted the charge of the high school in Castine, ME, for one year, leaving this position in the Fall of 1866 to accept the position of principal in Nichols Academy in Dudley, MA. In this school Professor TRUFANT was very successful, but the health of Mrs. TRUFANT becoming delicate, & her physicians advising a change of location & climate, he removed with his family to Hackettstown, NJ, & took charge of the schools of that place, himself taking the position of teacher of the college
preparatory class. Such was the success of Professor TRUFANT in this relation & through his instrumentality, that the students sent forth from under his hand were enabled to take their positions in the freshman classes of Lafayette College, to which institution the city schools graduated a class of six young men at one time. The professor remained at Hackettstown for 10 years, coming to Oxford in the Summer of 1877. At this time the buildings of Miami University were unused, the college having
been suspended in 1873 for want of the requisite funds. Professor TRUFANT associated with himself his brother-in-law, Professor B. F. MARSH, an experienced and zealous educator, who had for years been connected with some of the finest schools of the East, the last being Pelham Institute at Poughkeepsie, NY, on the Hudson, & in the Fall of 1877 the two undertook the experiment of opening & conducting a boys' collegiate preparatory school in the university buildings, engaging such other assistants in their work as the demands of the school seemed to warrant from time to time. At the commencement of
the undertaking, the two earnest projectors of the enterprise, while having the sympathy of the Oxford people, found the effort to start & establish their school a work demanding great patience & perseverance. The opening was made with a class of sixteen or eighteen boys, which number has steadily increased in the five academic years during which the work has been progressing, until the attendance upon the last closing term was 75 or 80 pupils, & the class graduated thirteen. Professor &
Mrs. TRUFANT have had six children born to them, of whom two daughters and a son are now living. With his family he occupies the south end of the university building, known as Washington Hall, & his colleague, Professor MARSH, with his family, resides in Franklin Hall, which building has been pleasantly fitted up & furnished as a boarding department for the school, the study & recitation rooms being in the main building of the university. The school takes the name of the Miami Classical & Preparatory School, & the curriculum & high standard of graduation have sent their pupils into junior classes into junior classes in neighboring colleges.

Miami Student began publication on May 8, 1867. Years later, tracing its origin through a broken sequence of periodicals to the Literary Focus of 1827, it came to consider itself "the oldest college newspaper in the United States."

In 1877 the University grounds and buildings were leased to two educational entrepreneurs, Messrs. Trufant and Marsh, who opened the Miami Classical and Scientific Training School. They renamed the two dorms Washington Hall and Franklin Hall, and lived there with their students. They used only the classrooms on the first floor of the main building.
Isaiah F. Trufant was a short, stout, bearded man, called "Potty" by the schoolboys. Byron B. Marsh was a younger man, still in his thirties, with a boyish face hidden by a full beard. An expert marksman, he astonished the boys by shattering targets in the air with a .22 caliber rifle.
Trufant and Marsh offered a thorough college preparatory course, including music lessons by a member of the Oxford College faculty and a "Telegraphic department" taught by Sam Allen, the Oxford station agent. The school attracted a gratifying enrollment of boys from Ohio and from a distance. Among them were "Kid" Tweed, son of the notorious political boss of New York City, and three Wilder brothers from Honolulu; their father was a leading sugar planter in the Sandwich Islands.
In 1885 the trustees reclaimed the Miami buildings and advertised the reopening of the University. The Main Building, empty for a dozen years, was renovated--rotting sills replaced, glass fitted into scarred window frames, walls and ceilings plastered, floors repaired, slate blackboards hung in classrooms, and verandahs added at the three doorways. Then Miami was ready for a new beginning. "The university was reopened in 1885," wrote historian Henry Howe a few years later, "and whether it will regain the position it once held among Ohio's colleges is not easily answered."
Meanwhile Isaiah Trufant then went West to buy land in the Kansas land boom, taking some Oxford money to invest for his friends in the village. He lost it all.

Notes for EMERY BIGELOW TRUFANT:
Trufant is in Montcalm Co, not Macomb Co. It was named after
Emery Trufant who entered the first land entry in Maple Valley Township
and built a sawmill in 1871 (Romig's Michigan Place Names).
However, the 1870 census index of Macomb Co lists an Emory
Truefant in Clinton Twp, p.366. This might have been the same man as
he is not listed in our 1880 census index.

I keep a Macomb Co database and found the following: Emory T Trufant b
5 May 1811 MA d 25 Apr 1875 & buried Clinton Grove Cemetery, Mt.
Clemens. There is not a death record for him here. His wife was
Charlotte Gibbs who d 1894 Mt Clemens leaving 3 children. I do have
information on the children. Is this the same Emory that you were
talking about. I tried to import a file on Emory & his descendants
but the formating was lost & it was a mess. If you send me your
address, I will print it out and put it in the mail. I would be
interested in a family group sheet or information that you might have on
his parents for our files.
