JOHN BOND TREVOR, banker, b. 27 Mar 1822, in Philadelphia, PA, died 22 Dec 1890 in New York City. His father was John B Trevor, a life long resident of Philadelphia, a member of the legislature for several terms and a man of high character. The son attended private schools and gained a knowledge of business methods during five years as clerk in a wholesale dry goods house in Philadelphia. He came to New York in 1849, and 15 Jan 1850, obtained a seat in the Stock Exchange, where he soon gained prominence for his brilliant abilities. In 1852, James B Colgate and he associated themselves as Trevor & Colgate, stock brokers and bankers. Five years later, the house engaged in bullion dealings also and carried on business for nearly thirty years at No. 47 Wall Street, upon the site now occupied by the US Trust Co. Mr. Trevor was an adviser of many prominent capitalists, and, while adverse to acting in boards of directors, his influence was felt in the moulding of policies and the promotion of financial schemes. He was charitable in disposition and several institutions enjoyed his especial benevolence, the principal ones being the University and the Theological Seminary of Rochester. The Madison University also received gifts from him, and in conjunction with his partner, Mr. Colgate, he contributed the funds for building the Warburton Avenue Baptist Church in Yonkers, of which he was a member, one of the most handsome places of worship in the country. His benefactions amounted to several hundred thousand dollars. In early life, he was a member of the Sansom Street Baptist Church of Philadelphia. He was fond of Literature and of travel, modest, sagacious, a charming companion and a Christian gentleman. Mr. Trevor married twice, his first wife being a daughter of Lispenard Stewart. His second was Emily, daughter of A G Norwood of the firm of Norwood & Lockwood. His wife and their four children survived him, the latter being Henry G Trevor; Mary T, now Mrs. Grenville L Winthrop; Emily H and John B Trevor. The family home was "Glenview," Yonkers on the Hudson, which he built in 1878.
