V. Kolbenschlag: Other D. Boon tree said from Todd's Cave area
Thanks Richard Phelps for the information about the Fairplay area D. Boon tree. She happy for renewed interest in the collection at the Trabue-Russell House, and reminds others of the constant needs for care, adding, "Every community, I think, needs a protected and kept up place for historical displays. Not everyone needs to have been born in Adair County to know and care about preserving history and getting people interested in it." Click on headline for complete article
Comments re article 86927 Letter More on the Daniel Boone Tree
By Vonnie Kolbenschlag
Thanks to Richard Phelps for information about one of the D. Boon tree parts now located in the Trabue House. There are two tree parts and the location where the other tree part is said to have been is at the mouth of Todd's Cave. Boone is said to have stayed in caves which would have provided shelter.
I am glad people are getting interested in history and what the Trabue/ Russell House can offer. Chris is so right about having a secure place to preserve things there. We have oil paintings by a prominent portrait artist and Janice Holt Giles first collection books. The fact the house itself has a connection to one of the founders of Columbia, I think, is interesting.
Mold has attacked these last named items plus the hanging photos. I have been cleaning, retyping, not destroying or revising, the information that has been posted over the years. It had become discolored with mold. I have added photos of persons involved in Adair County history with a laminated one page biography. I have no clue where some of the items have come from or who put them there.
My husband, George, has scanned the photos and I have added one page laminated biographical information for each photo. This is being saved on flash drive or CD. I am also saving much printed material in a notebook.
Every community, I think, needs a protected and kept-up place for historical displays. Not everyone needs to have been born in Adair County to know and care about preserving history and getting people interested in it. - Vonnie Kolbenschlag
