Ensign John James Trabue, for whom Trabue Chapter was named, was an ancestor of Miss Carrie Knight, Trabue's first regent. Mrs. Anna Mead Letcher was instrumental in organizing the chapter, but as her ancestors were Tories, she and her family could not be members. Mrs. Letcher attended all the meetings as long as she lived.
