James A. Trumbell, a general farmer of Avery township, Hancock county, living on section 29, was born in Pennsylvania on the 28th of January 1867, a son of Cornelius and Adeline (Smith) Trumbell, natives of Pennsylvania, who became early residents of Belmond, Iowa. Both are still living, the father having reached the age of seventy-four years, while the mother is now eighty-one years of age.

James A. Trumbell acquired his early education in the district schools of Pennsylvania, which he attended until he reached the age of seventeen years, and then accompanied his parents on their removal westward to this state. He assisted his father in the development and further improvement of the home farm for five years and when twenty-two years of age started out on his own.
