Daniel Trabue, a founder of Columbia, KY, is buried in Green Co.
Mary & Dan Trabue's, Presley, also buried there. He had contacted cholera in Columbia in 1835, and, knowing it would be fatal, rode on his horse to his sister's house in Coburg/Haskinsville area, where he died and is buried
By Vonnie Kolbenschlag
Somewhere in the vicinity of the "Anderson" house is an old grave yard, maybe now completely grown over. Dan Trabue, one of the founders of Columbia and his wife and few other family members are buried in that small grave yard.
One of the Trabue daughters, Sally, had married in 1823 Garland Anderson, a prosperous land owner. In 1835, Daniel, age 75 and ill, moved from Columbia to stay with his daughter, then a widow. Dan's wife, Mary had died in 1830; Daniel died in 1840.
Their youngest son, Presley a lawyer, contacted cholera in Columbia in 1835. Knowing it would be fatal, he rode on his horse to his sister's house. His grave was dug quickly and he was also buried in that grave yard (early name for cemetery)
Dan Trabue was quite active in establishing Columbia, but he is buried in Green County. Vonnie Kolbenschlag
