Comments re article 87437 100 Years Ago Judge Baker writes of Col Daniel Trabue by JIM
By Tine Reynolds
Also very interesting is the question of what sources Judge Baker used for his information about Trabue.
Trabue himself wrote his autobiography at the time but evidently the first publication was not until 1981 as "Westward into KY."
So Baker must have had access to the original notes stored in Wisconsin. Latest edition of Trabue's book was published in 2004 with this exact or similar information.
Note: Trabue tried to lease land to dig a salt well in what is now Russell Co., etc., etc.; also referred to the road to Cumberland River.
All very insightful. Trabue evidently tried to get a soldier's pension but never qualified; he was only a sutler in the Revolutionary War and did not participate in the fighting.
Thanks to Jim.
