OF y^ .<J\*^-^^ 

THE EUBANK FAMILY / ^.vV^ -1^*^ 'c^'^ 

This typewritten book is an exact duplicate of 
the original manuscript that was produced by me, over 
a period of several years of research. 

My first letter, requesting information on the pro- 
ject, was written to the Osage County Clerk of Osage 
City, Kansas, on February 7, 1966, regarding the David 
Eubank family. 

It has been revised and corrected many times dur- 
ing more than 8 years lapse of time, and I have made 
every available effort to get the missing links in the 
chain of genealogy, however, there remains considerable 
needed data, and no doubt much of it can still be ob- 
tained, and corrected hereafter, and I hope and trust 
that it will be. 

My age will not permit me to continue on indefi- 
nitely, so I have decided to complete the materials 
that I have on hand at the present time. 

I shall then dedicate this book and it's contents 
to my son, Robert Oren Eubank, and any duplicates there- 
from, to the direct descendants of the original progen- 
itors as recorded herein, to be preserved by them for 
future posterity. 

August 1, 1974 

Oren E. Eubank 



The purpose of these forewords are to acquaint the 
reader with the principles involved in the recording of 
the genealogical history of the Eubank and associated 
families, beginning with Hezekiah Eubank, the great- 
grandfather of this writer. 

In the early sixties, while we were still holding 
the annual Eubank family reunion, sponsored by my family 
and held at my son, Robert's farm home near Dowagiac, 
Mich,, and while the Eubank and Ruble reunion, sponsored 
by the Eubank and Ruble families, near Lake City, Mich,, 
was still being held at Lake City (both of which my wife, 
Ethel and I attended religiously,) I conceived the idea 
of producing a genealogy history of the Eubank relatives, 

I think this was brought about by the fact that the 
only records available were those of my immediate family, 
which actually were very meager due to negligence in 
keeping them up, and many were the times that we ask our- 
selves the question, "I wonder how old uncle, or aunt, or 
cousin so and so, is and where they are living now, and 
if dead, where they passed away?" 

These same questions as to dates of births, marriages 
and dates of deaths, came up in our immediate families, 
many times, 

I usually mail out more than 100 Christmas cards each 
year at Christmas time, many of which contain also a letter, 
and on two different occasions I have written to relatives 
that had passed away and I did not know about it; but, now 
with my records and a supplimental record that I keep up 
continually, I can look up the records of any one of the 
relatives herein that come to mind and avoid such occur- 

At the time I began this project (which was in Jan- 
uary of 1966, I did not know where any of Uncle Aaron 
Eubank's or Uncle David Eubank's family relatives lived, 
and seemingly none of the associated relatives knew either. 

Referring to the records I had already compiled re- 
garding David Eubank, as now recorded on Page 41, I found 
that David and Amanda Eubank had moved to Kansas near 
Quenimo, in the year of 1868, where they had raised their 
family, so my first inquiry was a letter to the Clerk of 
Osage County, Kansas, asking if they could tell me of the 
whereabouts of any of Uncle David's family. 

The Clerk gave me the name and address of a lady 
that worked with the courthouse staff, that knew David's 

I then wrote her and she informed me that David and 
his family had moved to Oklahoma, and gave me the address 
of one of the granddaughters there, to whom I wrote and 
finally got the ball rolling. 


At this time all of the children of David Eubank 
had passed away, except, "Charles Leroy Eubank," who, 
with his wife, Hattie, lived at 1522 Valencia, Ocean 
Side, California, 

Charles had since passed away on July 5, 1970, 

Hattie is still living in a rest home as of this 
date, April 11, 1973, She will be 85 years of age this 
April 21st,, and is the only direct spouse now living. 

Up until 1970, I had not been able to contact any 
of Uncle Aaron Eubank 's family, although I had inquired 
of many of the relatives. Then, in early 1970 I wrote 
Floyd Ketner at Corcoran, California and he informed 
me that at one time, Clara (Eubank,) Crom t Aaron's 
daughter, lived at Nehawka, Nebraska, so I wrote a 
letter to the postmaster at Nehawka, inquiring if he 
knew any of the Crom family; and he informed me that 
Clara's daughter, Mildred, had married Elden C, Stimbert: 
that Mr, Stimbert had been principal of the Nehawka Schools 
for several years, but now lived in Memphis, Tennessee, and 
had been principal of the Memphis City Schools for ten years, 

Said he couldn't give me his address, but if I would 
write a letter addressed to the principal of the Memphis 
City Schools, at Memphis, Tennessee, that he was sure he 
would receive it, which I did, and to my surprise, after 
four years of unsuccessful effort, and immediately after 
receipt of my letter, Mildred, (who we did not know existed 
until a few days before,) called us on the telephone and 
contact was made. 

They gave me much information and a wonderful bio- 
graphy, which made me very proud to be able to record. 

During the several years since I began gathering 
the required information necessary to build a chain of 
genealogy, I have written many letters to many parts of 
the United States and some to Alaska, 

The larger portion of relatives seem to live in 
Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas, and California, but 
many of them are scattered through the entire United 
States . 

Whenever possible I have included the present add- 
resses of the heads of the families, however, some people 
do move from time to time, and not all addresses recorded 
can be relied upon to stay correct. 

Sometime during the past seven years I have written 
most of the heads of the families, and I want to thank 
everyone for their efforts in helping me to acquire the 
data that I have been able to record, 

I have found several different relatives that at 
some time or other, have undertaken to produce a genea- 
logy record, but not being able to procure enough of 
the necessary information; seemingly never completed 
the task. Each and every one of these have my sympathy, 
and I hope that each of them will acquire one of the 
books, and help to perpetuate the extention of the 


history in the future. 

Uncle David and his wife, Amanda, lived on their 
farm one mile south of Sickles, Oklahoma, until Amanda 
died in 1917, then David went to live with his daughter, 
Jennie Geoffrey, at 2350 West Park Place, Oklahoma City, 

In 1918 or 1919, David visited with us in our home 
at Marion, Indiana, and at that time he was traveling 
among the relatives and was gathering information for his 
genealogy book, and my brother, Everett and I drove him 
around to see some distant relatives of his (none of whom 
we really knew,) and he took notes on their families to be 
used in his book. 

This book was a loose-leaf standard typewriter size 
paper, that contained 71 pages of typewritten materials, 
31 pages of which was recorded names of relatives; be- 
longing in the generation's; enumerated in this history; 
and, the other 46 pages mentioned names of relatives be- 
longing to the brothers and sisters of Joseph Eubank. 

It was not the intention of this writer to pursue 
the family records of the children of Hezekiah and Chris- 
tena Eubank, except that of Joseph Eubank (who was the 
sixth) child and who, with his wife, Rosana, were the 
progenitors of the following recorded generations. 

I used the information mentioned in those 31 pages 
with much correction and addition, as a starting point. 

The last recordings in Uncle David's historical 
sketches in those 31 pages were made in about the year 
of 1920. 

It became necessary for me to go back to the year 
of 1867 to procure the names of the first born children 
of the sons and daughters of Joseph and Rosana Eubank, 
and record them and the dates of their births, and con- 
tinue on down with the marriages and births of the fol- 
lowing generations, which necessitated the searching 
through 105 years of family records in order to obtain. 

Some exact dates are missing and it is possible 
that they can still be secured, and there are blank 
spaces left where they can be inserted, but I feel that 
my advanced age will not permit me to wait longer, for 
fear that I will be unable to get it finished as I would 
like it to be, and have it printed in book form and dis- 

This book will contain 288 Indexed pages. 

It contains more than 1,200 names, all of which are 
either direct or indirect relatives of the more than six 
generations - of whom Joseph and Rosana Eubank, were the 


In all instances where possible, it gives the 
full name; date of birth; date of marriage; to whom 
married; and the names and birth dates of their chil- 
dren, beginning with the co-pro jenitors , who were the 
children of the original projenitors. 

Also, many of the records of relatives contain a 
partial biography or schoolastic, or other achievement. 

Where possible to obtain, I have recorded the dates 
of the deaths of each of the relatives that have passed 
away, and the addresses of the heads of the families 
(which were correct on the dates shown,) at the bottom 
of the recorded spaces. 

With one of these books in one's possession they 
are in a position to use it in writing letters to rela- 
tives, or to answer many questions that arise in the 
family conversation - almost daily. 

I had my first manuscript indexed: ready to use 
about four years ago, and while it was not nearly 
finished, I found it to be a source of information 
that I would feel lost without.

picture taken at the site of the big Cypress tree, on U.S. 
Highuay 92, near De Land, Florida, where ue stopped on our 
way from Orlando to Daytona Beach, where we visited with 
Alva and Belva Eubank, on our first trip to Fla. in 1955. 


Joseph and Rosana Eubank had eleven children, one 

of whom, Ellen, passed away at the age of 2 years, 2 

months and 29 days. 

The ten remaining children all lived to maturity 
and marriage. 

Following are the names of these children and 
their spouses, who constitute the progenitors of the 
following six generations, as enumerated in this Genea- 
logy History, 

Aaron and Lusadia (Swaim) Eubank, 
David and Amanda (Becker) Eubank. 
William and Hester (Ruble) Eubank. 
Henry James and Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank. 
Sarah Catherin (Eubank) and Thomas Allen Ruble.

John Franklin and Lydia (Ketner) Eubank, 
Mary Etta (Eubank) and Alexander Keith. 
Elizabeth Ann (Eubank) and Elam Perviance Mitchell. 
Ida Rosana (Eubank) and John Nelson Ketner. 

All of the children born to the six generations 
(except a very few, if any,) that the genealogist was un- 
able to procure, have been recorded herein, by giving their 
parentage, names, and dates of birth, beginning with Joseph 
and Rosana Eubank and continuing down to the present time, 
December 1, 1974, as recorded in pages 1 to 285, inclusive.

Hezekiah Senior's wife, available at this time. 

Joseph and Rosana Eubank and their granddaughter, Sarah 
Delphina, VJilliam Eubank's daughter, who was ten months 
old when her father and mother died. 

Her grandfather and grahdmother had already raised eleven 
children to maturity, three of whom were not as yet married, 
when they took her to raise. She was about nine years old 
when this picture was taken in about 1890. Her grandfather, 
Joseph died October 22, 18.91. 




Joseph Eubank was born to Hezekiah and Christena Eubank 
in Preble County, State of Ohio, on October 8, 1820. 

Rosana Rohrer was born to Aaron and Rachel (Deanor) 
Rohrer, in Washington County, State of Maryland, on November 22,

Joseph Eubank passed away on October 22, 1891 at 
the farm home in Warren, Indiana, at the age of 71 years 
and 14 days. 

Rosana passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs, 
Mary Etta Keith (known as Aunt Molly) on East Sherman Street, 
in Marion, Indiana, on October 4, 1911, at the age of 88 years, 
10 months and 12 days, 

Joseph was buried in Good Cemetery, Warren, Indiana; 

has stone monument with the following inscription: 

"Asleep in Jesus, Blessed Sleep 
In which none ever wake to weep", 

Rosana was laid to rest along side of Joseph, but no 

inscription of her appears. 

Sometime during the latter part of his life, Joseph was 
crowded by a high spirited horse in a stall of their barn in 
the farm and was injured, and the affects of that injury was 
thought to have shortened his life span. 

This was related to the writer by his brother, Charles 
Franklin Eubank, who was 16 years old when Joseph passed away 
and who was very closely affiliated with his grandfather during 
his late years. 



Aaron Eubank (the first son of Joseph and Rosana Eubank), 
and Martha (Dudley) Eubank, born September 30, 1347, were 
married in about the year of 1864. 

David Eubank 's record contains the following stanza . 

To the above union was born one child only, a male baby 
named Ellis Eubank. 

Martha passed away May 23, 1867, at the age of 19 years, 
8 months and 23 days. 

Aaron's second wife was Lusadia Swaim, who was born 
September 2, 1852 in Randolph County, North Carolina. 

They were married in about the year of 1868. 

To this union four children were born. 
Arthur L. Eubank, born Augus t 23, 1869; 
Clara Levanda Eubank, born October 16, 1871; 
Elmer Addison Eubank, born June 8, 1873; 
Walter Eubank, born August 17, 1875. 

Walter passed away on September 7, 1875, age 23 days. 

Lusadia was a sister to the writer's mother, Charlotte 
Swaim, and Aaron being my father's brother, made the children 
of the two families double cousins. 

Lusadia passed away March 23, 1877, at the age of 24 
years, 6 months and 21 days. 

Aaron's third wife was Catherin (Gebhart) (Good) of 
Fort Jefferson, Ohio, born February 12, 1838, and they were 
married in the year of 1879. 

She had a daughter by the name of Nora Conn at the time 

of their marriage. 


Gather in passed away in November of 1906 and Aaron 
on April 20, 1910, at the age of 67 years and 10 months. 

Aaron Eubank served four years and four months in the 
Thirty-Fourth Indiana Veteran Volunteer Infantry, 

My father, Henry James Eubank, was about 7 years younger 
than Aaron and had not yet been called for service when the 
war ended, and I remember him telling of this incident. 

Shortly before the war ended in the year of 1965, Aaron 
came home on a furlough, and the war was declared over while 
he was there, and when the news came, Aaron thought they 
should celebrate. 

He loaded up the old musket with a heavy charge of powder, 
using hornet '-s nest for wadding, elevated the muzzle of the gun 
into the air and squeezed the trigger. 

The explosion was terrific and Aaron was left standing 
with nothing but the stock of the gun in his hand, exclaiming 
in frenzy, "where is my gun?" 

This story was told by my father when I was small and has 

remained vivid in my mind, and I remember my father's humor 

as he used to relate the incident, „„. ,, .. ,. 

"The Writer" 

Aaron and his three wives are buried in the Good Cemetery 
in the southeast edge of Warren, Indiana, 

Stone bears his name and Twenty-Fourth Indiana Infantry 

David Eubank, on one of his visitations here from Oklahoma, 
after Aaron passed away, purchased and installed a grave marker 
for each of Aaron's wives, 



Arthur L, Eubank, the son of Aaron and Lusadia 
(Swaim) Eubank, left his father's home at the southeast 
corner of the intersection of Sherman Avenue and Ohio 
Street in Marion, Grant County, Indiana, in the year of 
about 1899, when he was about 30 years of age, going by 
horseback to the State of Colorado. 

He worked for a gold mining company near Telluride, 
in San Miguel County, Colorado, for several years as a 
tram man, after which he was employed by the Western Power 
Company at Illium, Colorado, and his job was to walk the 
Illium Flume. 

He slipped on the wet flume and fell, injuring his 
spine, causing paralysis, which caused his death. 

There is no available record at this time, December 
12, 1967, of the date of his death. 

Little more is known about him other than a type- 
written paper that was written by someone at the time of 
his death; that was sent to Floyd Ketner, a cousin of 
his and mine, and mailed by Floyd to this writer in 
December of 1967, 36 years after the accident. 

The supposition is that he, Arthur, never married. 

A facsimile of the above-mentioned paper appears 


Through inquiry by the writer to the Montrose 
Funeral Home, at Montrose, Colorado, as of December 
29, 1967, I received the following information. 


"Funeral Services for Arthur L. Eubank, were held 
at the Montrose Funeral Home Chapel at 2:30 P. M,, 
Oct, 12th., 1931, with burial in Ceder Cemetery, at 
Montrose, Colorado, 

He passed away Oct., 8th,, 1931, at St, Lukes 
Hospital, Montrose, Colorado, 

In the Funeral Home Records, there is nothing 
to show that he was ever married, or had any children," 


By Montrose Funeral Home, 




A.L, Eubank, 56, who passed away Thursday noon 
after injuries received last Friday, amazed all who 
came in contact with him, by his heroic spirit. 

Everything was alright with him and he spent 
his last days without complaining or murmuring. 

When told he had little chance, without an opera- 
tion and little more with one, and asked his opinion, 

he said, "he would leave it to the doctors decision 
as to what to do," 

Even in his last hours when asked how he was, he 
would reply, "fine" with a smile, although his friends 
knew he was not feeling fine, however, due to the 
paralysis that seized him immediately after the fall 
he did not really suffer any pain. 

He had been walking the Illium flume for the Colo- 
rado Power Company for eleven years; previous to that 
he was engaged in mining at Telluride, being a tram man. 

Little is known about him. He is survived by a 
sister, Mrs, W, L, Crom of Nehawka, Nebraska, who arrived 
Friday to make arrangements for the burial. 

He spoke of a brother, but did not know the address. 

The power company did everything possible for him, 
even bringing in a noted Denver specialist, to operate 
on him, but without success. 

He slipped on the wet flume last Friday and fell; 
his companion was unable to carry him to aid, and had 
to leave him for an hour and a half, while he went 
for aid. 

During that time it rained very hard, and Mr, Eubank 
said he never had anything annoy him so much as the 
heavy rain beating down in his face during that time 
and being utterly unable to ward it off, otherwise, 
he uttered no other word of complaint, everything was 
alright. He said if he could not get well it was 
alright and whatever happened was for the best. 

He took everything stoically, just as the old miner 
pioneers do. 

The body is at the Montrose Funeral Home awaiting 
funeral arrangements, 


This is an exact facsimile of an original typewritten 
paper, that was written presumably by someone at the 
scene, in about the year of 1931, 

Copied by Oren E, Eubank 
Dowagiac, Michigan December 29, 1967, 


Here is a newspaper clipping that was mailed to me 
by Mildred (Crom) Stimbert of 4730 Lorence Avenue, Memphis, 
Tenn,, who was the daughter of Clara (Eubank) Crom, Arthur's 
sister, as of March 4, 1970, in answer to my letter of 
inquiry to her of recent date. 


A.L, Eubank, dies as result of broken back. A. L, 
Eubank, who for the past 15 years has been in the 
employment of the Western Colorado Power Company in 
this Section, in the capacity of flume patrolman, passed 
away at St, Lukes Hospital, Montrose, Colorado at the 
noon hour, Thursday, Oct., 8th. 

While walking the flume, three miles above Ames last 
Friday, Mr. Eubank slipped and fell, breaking his back. 

Every effort was made to save his life, but his spine 
was so badly injured, that nothing could save him, 

0, G. Cowan of Illium was with him at the time of 
the accident. 

Dr. C. S. Mollohan was immediately summoned and Mr. 
Eubank was rushed to the hospital at Montrose, the doc- 
tor and Alva Otto making the trip with him. 

He had been paralyzed in the lower part of his body 
since the accident and had not been relieved of this 
condition, although everything possible had been done 
to help him. 

An intricate operation was performed by Dr. Robert 
G. Packard, one of the best surgeons in Denver, who was 
brought to Montrose by the power company. 

Three vertebras were broken in the lower part of Mr. 
Eubank 's neck. 

He was 56 years of age at the time of his death. 

Funeral arrangements will be made as soon as his 
sister and brother-in-law arrive from Nebraska. 

Other survivors are a brother who address is unknown 
and two uncles, one residing in Michigan, and one in 

Added By Writer

Dayton, Ohio. 

The uncle living in Michigan was John Franklin Eubank 
of Lake City, and the uncle residing in Oklahoma was David 
Eubank, of Oklahoma City. 

Also, at that time, three of his aunts on his father's 
side, Jane Ketner, Elizabeth Mitchel and Ida Ketner, were 
still living in Michigan. 

Arthur was about 32 years of age when he left the farm 
where Uncle John Eubank lived about three miles west of 
Banquo, Indiana, by horseback, bound for Colorado. He 
worked for the mining company at Telluride and the power 
company at Illium for about thirty years. 

He was 55 years, 11 months, and 15 days of age when he

William Crom had two children by a previous marriage. 
Jay Leroy Crom, born May 19, 1894; 
Elda Bell Crom, born April 1, 1900. 

All four children were raised together as full brothers 
and sisters, and have the same respect for each other, as 
if they were. 

Following are the duplicates of the obituaries clipped 

from the newspapers at the time of the passing of William 

Lincoln Crom, and Clara Levanda Crom. 


William Lincoln Crom, son of Elijah and Jane Crom, 
was born August 9, 1869, He died near Moscow, Idaho, 
November 21, 1949, at the age of 80 years, 3 months, and 

11 days. 

Very early in his childhood he moved with his parents 
from his birthplace in Iowa to a homestead near Swanton, 


An interesting event in his life occured when the 
family started west in a covered wagon, driving a team 
of oxen, which followed the Oregon Trail, 

After many months enroute it was decided to turn 
back, and the family returned to Nebraska, 

A decision to dedicate his life to the Gospel minis- 
try was made at the age of 18, In 1895 he received his 
license to preach in the United Brethren Church and was 
ordained in that church in 1903, 

There followed additional years of study at the 
Indiana Central College, During 30 years of ministry he 
served charges in Indiana, Nebraska, and Kansas, 

His untiring efforts resulted in the building of 
larger memberships and general progress in each church. 

This was especially true in the church at Du Bois, 
which was a very successful work. 

He united with the First Presbyterian Church, Pawnee 
City, together with his wife, on December 29, 1946, 

Among his outstanding characteristics was his 
enthusiasm for anything he thought worthwhile. He had 
an unusual and vital concern for all the lost, and a 
deep interest in the Sunday school and in all Bible study. 

His last public talk was at the fellowship supper at 
the First Presbyterian Church, when he spoke of his future 
home in heaven and sang an old hymn, "I am Bound for the 
Promised Land," One song he loved to sing at the men's 
prayer meeting was "My Soul be on thy Guard," 

Surviving are his widow, Clara L, Crom; a son Jay 
L, Crom, of Pawnee City; three daughters, Mrs, Glen 
Miller, of Wellington, Kansas, Mrs, Morris Mann, of Omaha,

at the age of 81 years, 6 months and 12 days.

Indiana, where she lived for many years. 

As the wife of a minister. Rev, W, L, Crom, she served 
untiringly with him in his pastorates in Indiana, Kansas, 
and Nebraska,

home and family.

Partial Biography of Mildred (Crom) Stimbert, 

and family. 

I was born in Logansport, Indiana, January 19, 1907; 
my parents, William Lincoln Crom and Clara Levanda (Eubank) 
(Charles) Crom, have told me it was a night to remember. 
My father attempted to cross the flooding Wabash River on 
horseback to call a doctor. He had to turn back and they 
resorted to kindly neighbors for aid in the birth. When 
I was one year of age the family moved to Nebraska. Our 
first home was at Julian, where my father served as Min- 
ister at the United Brethern Church. Numerous moves were 
made during my childhood. During my high school days we 
lived near Plattsmouth, Nebraska and I completed all four 
years there, graduating in 1925. That fall we moved to 


Lincoln, Nebraska so that I could register and enter 
Nebraska Wesleyan University, I met my husband there; 
Elden Carl Stimbert of Inland, Nebraska. After graduating 
in 1929 we each taught one year and were married in June 
of 1930, Our first home was at Johnson, Nebraska where 
Elden was superintendent of schools. He remained in this 
position in Nehawka, Nebraska for ten years and Lyons, 
Nebraska for one year. At that time (during the war) 
he accepted a position with the Firestone Company in the 
labor and training division. We lived in Lincoln for two 
years and then moved to Memphis, Tennessee. After two 
years he was asked to become Director of Instruction for 
the Memphis Public School System, which he accepted and 
later became Assistant Superintendent, and for the last 
twelve years has been superintendent of the city schools. 
Our son and daughter were both born in Omaha, Nebraska 
while we were living in Nehawka, Nebraska. My sister, 
Gladys, who was an ostetrical nurse, was in attendance at 
both births. Our daughter, Phyllis, and son, Vaughn, both 
received their A. B. degrees from Memphis State University, 
Phyllis taught speech and english in Memphis and Culver City, 
California for seven years. She and her husband, Ronald 
Patterson, now live in Hollywood, California with their 
two sons, Kevin and Brian. Ronald is a graduate of the 
U.C.L.A, Art School. Our son, Vaughn, spent five years as 
a navigator with the Stragetic Air Command. He then came 
back to Memphis and got his M. A. degree in physiology. 
In 1962 he married Betty Mothershed, who was at that time 


the television science instructor for the Memphis City 

Schools. She has received her Ki. A, in Biology. They 

moved to Tallahassee, Florida for three years, where 

Betty continues to teach and Vaughn received his P.H.D. 

in physiology from Florida State University, They have 

now moved back to Memphis where Vaughn is with the Child 

Development Center of the University of Tennessee Medical 

School. They have two daughters, Cynthia and Susan. Over 

the years we have continued our education; I went back to 

Memphis State University and took the Library Science Course 

they offered; Elden got his M, A. from the University of 

Nebraska before we moved to Memphis. Since he has received 

honorary degrees and has been awarded many educational 

honors, both locally and nationally.

Hester Ann (Ruble) Eubank, died February 13, 1881, at the age 
of thirty-nine years, two months and twenty days. ' 

William passed away one week before Hester's death - and

both husband and wife was preached at Zion Church, near Warren, ^j

James Henry Eubank, (the son of William and Hester Ann 
(Ruble) Eubank,) - who was never married - 

passed away on October 25, 1891, at Banner Springs, Tennessee, 
at the age of twenty-one years eleven months and five days. 


James was nearly eleven years old when his father and mother 
passed away - within a week of each other - and his grandfather 
and grandmother, Joseph and Rosana Eubank, took him to live with 
them; we lived near his grandfather, who was also my grandfather; 
and he used to come to our home to see us occasionally. 

I remember on one of these visits when he was about twenty 
years old, and at a time when my brother, Everett, was about 
five years old and I was between two and three years old, and on 
this occasion, both of us were ailing with someone of the chil- 
dren's ailments, so prevalent in those times, and both were occupy- 
ing a double crib, which also was common item to see in those days. 

Jimmie, as the folks called him, approached the crib and 
regarded us closely and said, "I am going to go hunting and 
get you boys a rabbit to eat," 

He then disappeared and after awhile came in with a 
cottontail. The above happening has painted a picture in 
my mind that is as vivid today as it was at that time, more 
than eighty years ago. At that time we lived in a little house 
near the Clover Leaf Railroad, not far from Warren, Indiana, 
and shortly after this, Jimmie went with Uncle Joseph and Aunt 
Jane Ketner to Banner Springs, Tennessee. He was living with 
them when he took sick and was confined to his bed for five 
weeks when he passed away. 

He was buried in a cemetery near Spring Chappel. He 
had purchased property and was preparing to make his home 
there at the time of his illness.

On December 9, 1974, as I was trying to close the book, 
preparitory to having it published, I received the following 
which I am recording here, almost verbatim, without the permis- 
sion of the writers, 

Christmas, 1974, The Collvers, 1495 East Drive, Flint, 
Michigan, 48504, Remembering Friends, "What a Joy" , , . , 

The Gospel of Luke tells why Christ was born in a cattle 
stall, saying of Mary," And she brought forth her first born 
Son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a 
manger; because there was no room for them in the Inn," 

We know little about the Bethelem Innkeeper, and what we 
do know is sad. On that holy night his rooms were all taken. 
There was no more space. Royalty was coming. The infant King 
would be born at any hour. But the innkeeper could not receive 

As we make room for him in our hearts and lives, we are 
reminded of the past blessings, his love for us and giving us 
strength throughout the year. We have much to be thankful for! 
Burt and I will be celebrating our bOth, wedding anniversary on 
January 16, 1975! We have had much happiness together, many 
friends, many blessings, and God has given a wonderful family 
to us. We will have a Golden Anniversary Open House in April, 
Date due to Michigan weather conditions,, 

Burt's health is reasonably good. He has been able to 
get out more this past year. We recently attended the Tnanks- 
giving Banquet at our Church, which he very much enjoyed. 

We enjoy our home very much, 


We would like to share with you a few highlights from our 
family! Rose Marie is still working as a nurse at St. Joseph 
Hospital in Ann Arbor! Her third and youngest daughter, Joy, 
was married to Bill Evans in August. She will graduate with a 
nursing degree and he in Theology from Olivet in Illinois. 

Marilyn is kept busy helping to deliver babies at the 
Martin Place Hospital, Her daughter, Lori, villi be our only 
high school graduate in June. Marilyn and Cleo's grandson 
also keeps them busy and YOUNG. Wendell and Gail are still 
in the school system, and they top the list, as Terry and Jan 
presented them with a grandson, Scott LaMar, born November 1st., 
1974. Scott is our fourth great-grandchild. Wendell and Gail's 
second son, Jeff, was married to Melissa Miller in September. 

Bud's boys Dave and John, are growing up all to fast. It 
is a delight to have them visit us. John enjoys hockey and Dave 
fishing! Dave is with the American Cancer Society, now working 
in Oakland County. Mary Beth is full of sunshine and has her own 
vocabulary. Janice is again among the ranks of the working girls. 
Hollis is interested in music, and she enjoys piano and voice. 

My greatest loss was the passing of my brother, Floyd Mathias 
in November, 1974. 

God gives us Peace and contentment , "most of all," his Love. 
The very best to each of you in 1975. We would love to have a 
visit from you anytime.

I could not do without him, Jesus - he is more to me than 
all the richest, fairest gifts of earth could ever be. But, 
the more I find him precious, and the more I find him true, 
the more I long for you to find what he can do for you. What 
will you do without him? Is he not kind indeed? Did he not 
die to save you? Is he not all you need? Do you not want a 
saviour? Do you not want a friend? One who. will love you 
faithfully and love you to the end? What will you do without 
him, when death is drawing near, without his love - the only 
love that casts out every fear? When the Shadow-Valley opens, 
unlight and unknown, and the terrors of its darkness must all 
be passed alone! What will you do without him when he has shut 
the door and you are left outside because you could not come 
before? When it is no use knocking - no use to stand and wait; 
for the word of doom tolls through your heart, that terrible too 
late. You cannot do without him - there is no other name by 
which you ever can be saved - no way - no hope - no claim, 
without him, everlasting loss of love and life and light! 
Without him - everlasting woe, and everlasting night. Why 
should you do without him? It is not yet to late; he has not 
closed the day of grace and he has not shut the gate. He calls 
you! Hush! He calls you! He would not have you go another 
step without him because he loves you so. What will you do 
without him when the great white throne is set and the Judge 
who never can mistake, and never can forget - the Judge whom 
you have never here, as friend and saviour sought, shall 
summon you to give account of deed, word and thought? You 
need not do without him, for he is passing by. He is waiting 
to be gracious, only waiting for your cry. He is waiting to 
receive you - to make you all his own! Why will you do without 
him and wonder on alone. 

The above Tract, was mailed to the writer by Edna Cleo 
Robinson, a second cousin, 

Edna has been ailing for sometime with what is thought to

to the end of her suffering, is my Prayer.

The following editorial was clipped from a Benton Harbor, 
Michigan paper in the year of 1969 and was copied by this 
writer verbatim, 


Misfortune started Lake City Flea Market, 

Three years ago Mrs. Eileen Eubank of Lake City, Michigan, 
was a busy housewife with two teenage daughters at home. Then, 
at age 34 she was completely paralyzed from the waist down! 
Observation at University Hospital in Ann Arbor, and at Mayo 
Clinic in Rochester, Minn,, indicated her case was hopeless - 
she would be paralyzed for life. Returning hime, she was 
determined to do her housework unaided. 

She started cleaning house and decided to have a yard 
sale. She and her husband owned an abandoned farm house a 
few miles south of Lake City, and they held the sale there. 


That sale was so successful that Mrs. Eubank has gone on to 
build a big business. 

It's called The Lake City Flea F.arket - now in its third 
year and if you're ever in the vicinity of Lake City, between 
Cadillac and Houghton, you'll have a chance to take it in. 
Eileen's husband, John, refurbished the old farm house - trans- I . 
formed it into a kitchen and dining room. They now serve meals 
to hundreds of tourists who stop each Saturday during the summer 
months to browse through goods offered for sale in the one acre 
plot. Space is rented by rummage sellers. 

With the aid of her eighteen year old daughter. Sheila, 
her mother, Mrs. Oren Chalker, and her husband, John, Mrs. 
Eubank has made the Lake City Flea Market a flourishing business 
that soon is going to be open two days a week instead of just one. 

Mrs. Eubank works all week preparing for Saturday at the 
restaurant. At three A.M. Saturday morning she arrives in the 
kitchen and starts baking pies, bread and pastry. She bakes 
forth pies before noon each Saturday and also bakes buns for 
supper and sandwiches and makes the sauce for sloppy joes. 
Daughter Sheila serves at the cafeteria style counter and dad 
works between kitchen and dining room, clearing tables and keeping 
the line moving, 

Mrs. Chalker tallies the stall rentals out in the yard. 
It's quite a deal for a gal, confined to a wheelchair.

Henry James Eubank, (the son of Joseph and Rosana 
(Rohrer) Eubank,) and Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank, born in 
Randolph County, North Carolina, on August 5, 1857, were 
married on May 19, 1874. 

To this union were born five children, 

Charles Franklin Eubank, born February 28, 1875 

Ida Viola Bell Eubank, born July 1, 1877; 

Ernest Everett Eubank, born September 21, 1884; 

Oren Emmett Eubank, born June 24, 1886; 

Clarence Lessel Addison Eubank, born February 28, 1893. 

Henry J, Eubank was born on his father's farm near 
Warren, Huntington County, Indiana, and passed away at Lessel 's 
home on Coit Avenue, Grand Rapids, Michigan, on February 10, 

Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank was born in North Carolina near 
the City of Charlotte, and came to Indiana with her parents, 
"overland" when she was about two years old. She passed away at 
Oren Emmett's home in South Bend, Indiana, on March 11, 1933, 

They were laid to rest, side by side in Fairplane Cemetery, 

Napp Street, N, E,, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 

Henry James, like many of his ancestors , while growing up, 
learned the building trades. 

After marriage he lived much of his life on farms. He 
didn't own a farm for many years and after his son, Charles, 
got old enough to help with the farming, they farmed and worked 
at the trade also. 


Of course, the renting of farms isn't entirely a matter of 
permanence and occasionally they were unable to procure a 
satisfactory agreement and they would move perhaps into some 
close town and work at their trade until some satisfactory 
arrangement could be had. 

Consequently, they did considerable moving. In 1B95, when 
Grover Cleveland was President of the U, S. A., and times were 
very hard, father quit farming and moved to Van Buren, Indiana, 
and lived on a rented property for a while - then purchased a 
small tract of land at the west end of town that laid on the 
south side of the main road, running east through Van Buren, 
which was a part of the Chopson farm, containing (I think,) 
one and three-tenths acres that was covered with Virgin Oak 

Father took enough timber from that parcel of land to 
supply enough rough lumber to build a six room house, a 24 
foot by 36 foot barn and other outbuildings. He hued all 
of the sills for the house and barn out by hand with a broad 
ax, and split enough 1" X 6" X 24" Oak wood shingles for the 
barn roof and enough 1" X 2^?" - four foot Oak wood pickets to 
weave 900 linear feet of picket fence, and wove the fence into 
place with a fence machine and three double strands of wire, all 
pickets and shingles were hand split, using a fro, and what we 
called a mule clamp. 

Brother Charles kept a team of horses and the farming 
impliments when they left the farm and he rented and farmed 
the Chopson land. 

We continued to live in Van Buren until about 1902 or 1903, 
when father purchased a fifty acre farm with fair buildings, 
about six miles west of Columbia City, Indiana, in Whitley 
County and we moved there. By this time Charles and Sister 
Vi'Ola were married and gone to themselves, and Everett and 
I were both old enough to take care of the farm work, which 
we did for a while, but father's health wasn't very good and 
Everett and I were away from home much of the time, doing con- 
struction work, and father decided to sell the farm and move 
into Columbia City, Indiana, Later, in 1912, they and Lessel, 
who was now about 19 years old, went to Hoxeyville, Michigan to 
live, but didn't like it there and returned to Marion, Indiana, 

until in 1920 when they went to Rockford, Michigan, where Lessel 
and Bessie were married on March 11, 1922, and later to Grand 

By this time father's health was very poor, so Lessel 
purchased a home on Coit Avenue, in Grand Rapids and converted 
it into two apartments, where they and father and mother lived 
until his death on February 10, 1923, 

Lessel later moved to South Bend and worked with me, and 
mother lived with us first at 1825 Brookfield Street, then at 
2013 Freemont Street, until she passed away on March 11, 1933, 
Father and mother were members of the United Brethren Church 
for many years, probably had their faults, as all human beings 
do, but they were good people that tried hard to live a Christian 
life, and after fifty and forty years respectively, since they 
passed away, their image stands out very vividly in my mind, and 
I shall honor and love their memory, as long as I am permitted 
to live. 




Charles Franklin Eubank, (the son of Henry James and 
Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank,) and Myrtle L, (Berringer) Eubank, 
born April 16, 1877, were united in marriage January 11, 1896 
at Van Buren, Indiana. 

To this union were born four children. 
Viva Eubank, born December 22, 1896; 
Clarence Ellsworth Eubank, born November 15, 1897; 
Roy Franklin Eubank, born March 11, 1901; 
Twylah E. Eubank, born December 16, 1906. 

Viva passed away in infancy. 

Myrtle passed away at their country home near Rockford, 
Michigan, on February 16, 1962, 

Charles passed away one month and three days later on 
March 9, 1962, at the same home. They were laid to rest side 
by side in Idlewise Cemetery, near Kent City, Michigan. 

The life of Charles Franklin Eubank as related by his son, 
Clarence, and recorded by the writer. 

Charles Franklin Eubank, the first child born to Henry James 
and Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank, like his father, was a farmer and a 
construction mechanic and he usually managed to carry on both 
facets of his trades at the same time, and after he was married 
to his wife. Myrtle, on January 11, 1896 at Van Buren, Indiana, he 
rented a farm a few miles distant, from Van Buren, and moved tnere, 
and on December 22 nd, their first child, a daughter, named Viva, 
was born, who died in infancy. They next rented a farm in St. 
Joseph County, Indiana, near Walkerton and moved there and on 
November 15, 1887, their first son, Clarence, was born, then in 
early 1899 they moved to a farm a short distance west of Banquo, 
Indiana, where they lived until the fall of 1900, when Charles 
built a house just west of where his father lived, which was 
across the street from the United Brethren Church on West Main 
Street in Van Buren, Indiana. They moved there and on March 11, 
1901 their second son, Roy, was born. They continued to live 
there and Charles worked for the Van Buren Lumber Company, 
stocking the material bins, and delivering materials to customers, 
with a lumber wagon, and a large team of gray horses, 


During this time he built another house alongside of where 
they lived. In 1902 he sold these houses and purchased a forty 
acre farm about two miles south and east of Taylor Station, 
southwest of Columbia City, Indiana. This farm had a nice tract 
of timber, and he logged off most of the saw timber, hauling it 
to the mill in Columbia City, also hauled land tax gravel on the 
roads for many of the local farmers and did considerable carpen- 
tering, and returned to Van Buren and plastered a big new house 
on what was known as the McGee farm, on the Grant and Huntington 
County lines north of Van Buren, Indiana. 

The next year, in 1903, there was a building boom in Van 
Buren, and he sold this farm and returned there, built a new 
house for his family, and did a big building business there 
that year. 

In 1904 he sold out again in Van Buren and purchased an 
eighty acre farm in Whitley County, Indiana, about five miles 
west and south of Columbia City, This was in what was known as 
the Oak Grove Community, and it had a goodly piece of timber 
on it, and in the winter months Father cleared off part of it, 
selling the saw timber and buzzing the remainder of the trees 
and the small timber into firewood and again hauling the surplus 
wood to Columbia City families for fire wood. He farmed his fields, 
and some additional land, for a neighbor, and did considerable 
building work in the vicinity. There was a road that ran north 
and south through the center of the eighty acres; the house stood 
on the east forty, and the barn on the west forty. This he didn't 
like, so he eventually moved the barn, which was quite large, across 
the road next to the house. 

In 1906, after living here for about three years, he sold the 
farm, and on November 6th he had an auction sale, selling every- 
thing except what they wanted to take with them, which was a team 
of horses, wagon, plow, drag, and a few other things. This they 
loaded into a boxcar with their furniture and moved to Cadillac, 
Michigan, where he had purchased a farm, about three miles west 
of the west end of Lake Cadillac, They just nicely got settled 
when on December 15, 1905, their daughter, Twylah was born. That 
was fine and okay, but the land was just no good, "sand" that dad 
didn't like, so one month later, in January of 1907, they traded 
that place for a nice little place of fifteen acres with a good 
house and barn, a horse, cow, sow, and chickens. This was near 
Warsaw, Indiana, about a mile across the field from Winona Lake, 
so there we had made another landing but, just for a few days, 
because father had traded this place for two hundred acres of 
timber land three miles from Harrisburg, Arkansas, So out we go 
again on the same snow we came in on, and when we arrived there 
we couldn't get the house for a month, so we rented a house in 
Harrisburg for a month, and when that time was up, we moved to 
the farm. 

Part of the land had been cleared and there was ten acres 
of Peach trees that bloomed and had peaches on them, but the sun 
was so hot that it just cooked the top sides of the peaches and 
they all fell to the ground, and there was about ten acres that 
we planted to corn, and that was good, but when the ears started 
to develope with corn the coons came in from the timber and cleaned 
off every ear, 


We didn't get even one ear! In the meantime, father had sold 
a lot of the timber to a company and they had moved a sawmill 
into the woods and dad got busy and traded the land for a 
hundred acres near V/ashington Court Court House, Ohio, so 
heads up again, here we go to Ohio. This land was rough hills, 
covered with good railroad tie timber. He hired some help and !• 
cut this off and delivered it to the railroad. He sold the land 
to the man that owned the land next to us; now it is time for us 
to go again, and we did just that, and we landed in South Whitley, 
Indiana on March 8, 1908. 

We moved the things out to John Smith's house near his store 
at Luther, six miles south of South Whitley, across the road from 
the Tile Kills. Dad and I worked there for a Kr. Zent that owned 
the tile factory, until fall, when we moved to the Nickey farm, 
about one and a half miles north of Columbia City, Indiana. While! 
living there, dad purchased a city lot on the north edge of the 
city, and during the winter months of 1908 and 1909 we built a 
house there, (that father afterwards sold,) while new - and in 
the fall of 1910 we moved over to the Clugiston farm, that joined 
up to the city limits on the north edge of Columbia City, and 
west of North Chauncey Street Road. 

We farmed this place until the fall of 1912, presidential 
election year, when we sold out to father's brother, Everett 
Eubank, and they loaded their household goods and other things 
that they wanted to take along in a box railroad car and billed 
it out for Cadillac, Michigan on September 19, 1912; we started 
out with a covered wagon and horses, for Hoxeyville, Wexford 
County, Michigan, where father's brother, Emmett and he had 
purchased three-fourths of a section of land a year before, 
some of which was original timber and we went there for the 
purpose of cutting the timber and disposing of it. 

It took nine days to make the overland trip by wagon, and 
we arrived there at midnight on September 8th, This land was 
about four miles northwest of Hoxeyville, Michigan, and about 
twenty-five miles West of Cadillac. We drove off the road on 
the west side, going north into the timber, which was the south- 
west quarter of the section, as the north and south road going 
north from Hoxeyville ran through the center of the section, and 
there we camped until morning. 

It was on a Saturday night and as I said, midnight, so mother 
dad and Twylah slept in the wagon and Roy and I slept under the 
wagon on the ground. In the morning we looked at our shoes and 
socks that we had left out and they were white with frost. Not 
so happy about this we pulled them on, hoping they would soon 
warm up and dry off, then, after mother fixed our breakfast we 
figured out and drove four stakes where we would build a little 
house, size 18' by 24', for a place to get into as soon as 
possible. Clarence says, "now, Uncle Emmett this is when and 
where you come in," meaning that I worked in the timber with 
them that winter, all of which I hope to be able to explain 
in a separate item, I being the writer. 


The next spring we moved over onto the Peterson farm and 
worked it in 1913. A part of that spring and summer dad drove a 
big ox team, equipped with ox yoke, chains and logging tongs, 
pulling logs out of the wet low lands along the south branch 
of the Manistee River. 

Later on, in 1913 father contracted a big house and a big 
stock barn to build, over by Luther, Michigan. He hired some 
men to help him and it took them all of that summer up until 
late fall to finish them. 

On October 15, 1913 we moved over to a big house one-half 
mile west of Hoxeyville, just for the winter, and on March 20, 
1914 father started out with the team and wagon, and the rest of 
us went down on the train to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where father 
met us, and we went out to the farm that he had rented, near 
Galesburg, and our goods came, and we were all in the business 
again. Among the crops we had about twenty acres of potatoes 
for a cash crop. The crop was all good, but the price wasn't 
any good. No. 1. Potatoes delivered in Kalamazoo only .IVc per 
bushel. That, we would not do, so two days before Thanksgiving 
in 1914, we loaded two refrigerator cars with potatoes and on 
Thanksgiving day we loaded a boxcar with our horses, tools and 
furniture, billed them out that evening for Rison, Arkansas, where 
we got a $1.00 per bushel for them. 

Father did carpenter work and when he had spare time, we 
worked in the woods cutting timber for the Cotton Belt Railroad, 
bridge timbers and spiles, with which bridges were constructed. 

Then, in April of 1915 we moved back north to Marion, 
Indiana, This summer father and I worked for Pasco Peal building 
houses and carpentering on a big building for the Box Board Com- 
pany, on which Mr. Peal was the construction foreman. Then, that 
fall, on October 5, 1915, father and his brother, Lessel Eubank, 
went up to Kent City, Michigan on Lessel 's motorcycle, each looking 
for a place to buy, and Lessel purchased a nice twenty acre tract, 
with good buildings, and father bought a forty acre farm five miles 
north and three miles east of Kent City, Michigan. Then, they 
returned to Marion on Uncle Lessel 's motorcycle; then father and 
his family. Uncle Lessel, grandma and grandpa Eubank, all packed 
their goods and furniture and loaded them into a boxcar, and 
shipped them to Kent City, in the fall of 1915. 

In 1917 father purchased another sixty acres, which made 
enough land to keep the family busy as we grew. 

Alot of crops for the Kent City Canning Factory, 

Father was busy all the time, building several new farm 
homes, all around Kent City, 

By this time we had found out that our land was too low and 
frosty for us, so father sold it, and took in city property in 
Grand Rapids, but that he didn't want either, so within a week, 
he traded the city property for an eighty acre farm about four 
miles east of Rockford, Michigan, where we moved to on March 25, 
1920, farming it that season, and the following season. Then, 
in the early winter of 1921, father traded this farm for a large 
duplex property in Grand Rapids, on Plainfield Avenue, where they 
lived in a part of the house and rented the balance. 





to the 

Father contracted carpenter work here until in March, 
1923, when he traded this duplex for a one hundred sixty acre 
farm near Nashville, Michigan, where he moved to on April 
1, 1923. One year on that farm was enough. It was so stony 
with large ones coming to the surface, that father sold the 
farm in the fall of 1923, and had an auction sale. We then 
moved back to Grand Rapids, purchasing a lot on South Division 
Street in the Home Acre Division and built a home, where we 
lived until in the fall of 1924, when he got a chance to 
it for a good price, and take in a house on Coit Avenue, 
he did, then we moved to the Coit Avenue house. 

I, Clarence, bought the vacant lot just north of it 
built my house, where Vinnie and I lived until we moved 
farm, where I still live. 

In the spring of 1926, father traded his Coit Avenue 
property for an eighty acre farm on the north edge of Sparta, 
Michigan, and they moved out there. Then, in February of 1927 
he traded the Sparta farm for that one hundred sixty acre farm 
on Shaner Avenue, northeast of Rockford, Michigan, which turned 
out to be his last farm. It had a good barn but the house was 
old so they tore it down, and in 1922 they built a new one and 
moved into it. 

This farm had a large woods, with a lot of saw timber and 
father had a man to move his sawmill back in the woods, where he 
cut the trees, sawed the timber and delivered it to Grand Rapids 
for a set price. He kept enough lumber for his own building 
work, and built two five room houses down on the southwest 
corner of the farm, on the paved highway. State Road No. 57, 
v;here it crosses Shaner Avenue Road, running east from U.S. 
Highway No. 131, north of Rockford, Michigan to Greenville, 
Michigan. They sold this farm in the spring of 1950 and had 
an auction. Then, they moved into the corner house next to 
Shaner Avenue Road, where they lived until both of them passed 

He was 75 and 76 years old when he built the two houses, 
and he did most of the work himself. He didn't do much work 
other than to take care of the two properties, after that. 

Charles was 87 years and 13 days old when he died. 

Myrtle was 88 years, 10 months old when she died. 

Signed, Clarence E, Eubank. 

I requested Clarence E. Eubank, Charles' son, to give me 
a historical panorama of his father's married life, which he 
did, and I have recorded it almost verbatim, as told by him 
in his own words. 

I think that I can honestly say without question, that 
Charles F. Eubank was the hardest working man throughout his 
entire life, that I ever knew. 

When he died he v/as quite comfortably well-fixed, finan- 
cially, most of which he obtained after he moved to the Shaner 
Avenue farm, from 1926 until he retired, after selling the farm 
in 1950.

A partial biography of a nice family that really made 
good, by successful planning, hard work and honesty. Stick- 
to-itivity is the key word, which really eliminates the process 
of the so-called rolling stone, 

I requested Clarence to write up something about his life 
activity, and here it is in his own words, "The Writer." 


Starting back in the fall of the year 1918, after the 
end of the World War, I was 21 years old. on November 15th, and 
I had met La Vinnie Curtis, who eventually became my wife, and 
we started planning our lives together. 

At this time I was doing carpenter work with my father, 
Charles F. Eubank, contracting and building houses. 

In 1921 and 1922, when Vinnie was going to college in 
Kalamazoo, Michigan, I took a job there also, as receiving 
clerk for the Cornwell Wholesale Grocery Company. 

It was a good job and I liked the work, but later on I 
decided to go back to Grand Rapids and build some houses 
for myself. 

I bought a lot and built a very nice house on it and sold 
it, taking in three lots as part payment and the balance in cash; 
then I was in business for myself. 

I built on all three of the lots, sold one and traded one 
for this farm on Four Mile Road Northwest and on July 11, 1925 
Vinnie and I were married. We lived in the fourth house at 
745 Coit Avenue. 

At this time Vinnie was teaching at Coit Avenue School, 
Then, in May of 1927 I started to work as a salesman for the 
Mathews Sales Company, General Motors Sales And Service, 

This I liked and I did well until in the fall of 1929 
when they went out of business. 

However, they recommended me to A. L, Donaldson, the 
Packard distributors for Western Michigan, who wanted me to 
take over their used car division, which had about ninety cars 
in stock, 

I took the job, selling and preparing ads for both of the 
Grand Rapids papers, everyday. 

In the spring of 1932 they decided to quit the business, 
which they did. 

At this time Vinnie and I decided to move out on the farm. 
We were very happy out there, so I traded the Coit Avenue house 
for the farm adjoining this one on the west. 

La Vinnie then quit teaching and helped me out there; then 
on April 1, 1936, Curtis came to live with us - he was a nice big 
8h pounder. We had a boy growing up to help us! On November 24,

and much happiness, Curtis and Ellen Clayton were married. They 
built a new home a short distance west of the farm home and live 
there with their two darling girls, ages six and two years 
respectively, which grandpa loves so much.

Roy Franklin Eubank, (the son of Charles F, and Myrtle L, 
(Berringer) Eubank, and Edna M, (Dingman) Eubank, born January 
3, 1904, were united in marriage February 28, 1923, at Rockford, 

To this union were born two children. 
Edward Leroy Eubank, born October 17, 1925; 
Doris M, Eubank, born December 21, 1927. 

Both were born in Rockford, Michigan. 

Roy and Edna owned several farms in Michigan during their 
early life span, most of which were in the White Tail deer 
habitat, and in the year of 1942 my wife, Ethel and I spent 
the deer hunting season with them on their farm, near Paris, 
Michigan, The second week Roger and Gladys Pope and daughter, 
Patricia, came and Roy and his son, Edward, Roger and I made the 
second trip to near Irons, Michigan with our tent and equipment. 

We spent Thanksgiving in the woods and we had a very enjoy- 
able time. We spent the hunting season of 1944 there also, and 
no one could avoid having an enjoyable time when associated with 
Roy and Edna Eubank 's superb hospitality, 

Roy, like his father, was a farmer and builder. When I 
retired from my work with the Belleville Lumber And Supply 
Company at South Bend, Indiana, in 1955 and sold the farm, I 
moved to Kissimmee, Florida, and worked for some time with the 
Kissimmee Lumber Company of that city, in the capacity of sales 
and service, and did contracting for the company. Construction 
men were scarce there at that time, and I wrote Roy and Edna to 
come down there and work for me, which they did, and he and my 
brother, Lessel, who had moved to Kissimmee in 1954, built a new 
home for one of my customers, and also remodelled a house for 
me that I had purchased for a home; then in 1956 they returned 
home to Michigan, 

In the year 1962, his father, Charles and mother, Myrtle, 
both passed away, and he obtained his father's home place and 
lived there until 1974, when they purchased a mobile home and 
placed it on their son-in-law and daughter, Lawrence and Dorris 
Teeter's farm, near Paris, Michigan, where they plan to spend 
the remainder of their declining years.

A biographical sketch of their married life as told 
by Twylah Hazelton in her own v/ords. 

We were married July 20, 1936, The next year we started 
farming for ourselves, April 3, 1956. A devasting tornado des- 
troyed our buildings, except house and tool shed. We had a lot 
of debris to clean"off our fields, rebuild our buildings, along 
with the farming. We were in the milk house when it was des- 
troyed; a miracle we were not hurt. None of our cattle were 
hurt, as large timbers came through the upper floor between them 
as they were in their stanchions. After so much work and v;orry 
from his mother's stroke and death, Andrew had a heart attack 
and wasn't able to work for some time- then not hard work. We 
changed from dairy cattle to beef and hired help for the heavy 
v;ork. In 1960 we decided to take a short vacation and took 
Clarence and Vinnie with us - toured all of the U, P. of 
Michigan, also the northern part of Lower Michigan, visiting all 
places of interest and had a wonderful time. 

By 1962 we decided to sell the farm, to the son and family 
of friends of ours, except a tract of ten acres along Highway 
57 where we moved into a house there and retired. 

We purchased a travel trailer and Clarence and Vinnie, with 

us, travelled to Sarnia, Canada, on to Niagra Falls - through 

beautiful farming country - on around through the Province of 

Ontario, took a boat ride through the thousand islands and many 

other interesting sights, over to Sault Sainte Marie, took the 

ferry back to Michigan, and on home, 
^ 143, 


The fall of 1962, Clarence and Vinnie left with us for 
Florida, stopping along the way at Mammoth Cave, Rock City, 
Licons birthplace, all other interesting places, travelling 
all over Florida, visiting the tourist attractions, out to 
Key West, through the Naval Station there, across the Ever- 
glades to Flamingo, on the southwest tip of Florida, came 
back through Mississippi, Louisana, Arkansas, on north to 

The summer of 1964 we bought a nice cottage on Thunder 
Lake near r-lanistique, U, P., Michigan, After Labor Day we 
took Clarence with us from the cottage, went to Sault Sainte 
Marie, crossed over the new international bridge into Canada, 
travelled all the way around Lake Superior, with a few side 
trips, one to Kenora, Canada, a great summer vacation place, 
back into Minnesota, over to Charles City, Iowa, and Lansing, 
Minnesota, to visit our cousins, across through Illinois into 
Michigan, and home. That winter we went to Florida again, 
having Clarence with us for more sightseeing, going through 
Ohio on a different highway, came back last of March, through 
the Smokey Moutains, (this was beautiful.) 

The fall of 1965, we asked Clarence to go with us to travel 
the southwest all over Texas, saw President Johnson's home ranch, 
through the oil well territory, into New Mexico, through the 
Carlsbad Caverns, Salt Flats and other interesting places, into 
Arizona to Tombstone, Tuscon, Phoenix, GrandCanyon, beautiful 
Painted Desert, petrified forest, etc. Then to California past 
Art Linkletter's large motel to San Diego, to see the world's 
largest zoo, was very interesting - then back north past Lawrence 
VJelk's beautiful mobile home village, where he lives in a gorgeous 
large mobile home, back to Tuscon, Arizona, down into Old Mexico v 
at Nogales, had a lot of fun and bought some souvenir's at bar- | 
gain prices. 

It was too cold in Arizona to suit us, so we left for 
Zephyrhills, Florida, and bought a new mobile home. We had it 
set up on a lot in Tropical Park, all ready to come back to the 
next fall; since then we have spent the winters there. 

In the spring of 1971, we went home through the eastern state 
going through the New Chesapeake Bay Tunnel and bridges, from 
Norfolk to Cape Charles, past the island where the small wild 
horses propagate; from which our Vice-President, Jerry Ford, 
got one for the zoo in his home city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, 
and from there over to Washington, D. C., and then on home. 

In 1972 we decided to sell our cottage at Thunder Lake in 
the U. P., Michigan, and the extra lot we had there. 

In 1973 we sold off some for building sights; then we had 
a nev/ house built on our land facing on Shaner Avenue around the 
corner from where we did live. 

Nov/, in 1974 vie just sold our mobile home in Florida and 
will return to our new home in Michigan, and see how the energy 
crisis develops before planning any more trips. 



Ida Viola Bell (Eubank) Pulley, (the daughter of Henry 
J. and Charlotte (Swaim) Eubank,) and Jessie Arnie Pulley, born 
September 28, 1857, on his father's farm near Landess, Indiana, 
were united in marriage August 27, 1895. 

To this union were born three children, 
Urshell Ellsworth Pulley, born August 9, 1897; 
Edith Echoe Pulley, born April 21, 1901; 
Grace Gladys Pulley, born December 17, 1908, 

Jesse Arnie, known as Jess Arn, passed away October 5, 
1962, at the age of 95 years, and S days, and was laid to rest 
in Garden Of Memories Cemetery, about 9lf miles northeast of 
Marion, Indiana, on State Road No. 9, 

Viola Bell Pulley, known as Ola, continued to live at 
their farm home 1H miles north of Landess, Indiana, in Grant 
County, until in the fall of 1969, v;hen she went to spend the 
winter with her daughter, Gladys Pope, at their farm home near 
Warren, Indiana. 

On November 21 st she fell and fractured a hip bone and was 
taken to the Marion General Hospital for surgery, and it turned 
out to be a very bad break. 

Her condition improved slowly, and after about tv;o weeks 
they moved her to River View Manor, a convalescent center, where 
they had the facilities to give her proper therapy. 

However, in less than three weeks, she grew worse and 
developed a massive congestion, and passed away on Christmas 
day, December 25, 1969. 



Her body was moved to A Van Buren Funeral Home where 
it laid in state until on Monday, December 29, 1969, when 
it was moved to the Landess Christian Church at Landess, 
Indiana, preparatory to holding the funeral services at 
two o'clock P. H. 

Ola and Arnie had been members of this church for many 
years, and it was only about 1-? miles from their home place, 
where they had resided since the year of 1895, more than 74 years, 
except for a short period of time when they lived in Whitley 
County, Indiana. She was laid to rest along side of Arnie in 
the Garden Of ['Memory Cemetery, at the age of 91 years, 6 months 
and 20 days.

(Eubank) Pulley, and Jesse Arnie Pulley,) and Bertha (Smith) 
Pulley, born August 12, 1898, near Van Buren, Indiana, were 
married February 23, 1918. 

To this union were born two daughters, 
Berneta Harcia Pulley, born April 18, 1920; 
Wanetta Marie Pulley, born October 19, 1924. 

Bertha became afflicted with an incurable malady when 
Wanetta was as yet a small child, and was taken to a sanitarium 
for treatment; her condition grew worse and she was never 
removed from the institution. Urshell did not remarry until 
long after the time limit required for separation in such 
circumstances had passed. 


Urshell E, Pulley, and Margaret (Shepard,) (David), who was 
born August 13, 1901, were united in marriage October 13, 1953. 
To this union no children were born 


Urshell 's mother, Viola Bell (Eubank) Pulley was this 
writer's only sister, and Urshell was born when I was eleven 
years old, and I spent much of my teenage years in their home. 
I loved to hunt rabbit, fox, squirrel and quail, and they were 
plentiful in those days, and we had a lot of territory to hunt 
over, consequently, with "Ursh," as we called him, at my side, 
we learned to love and respect each other - a respect that was 
to continue throughout our entire span of life. Urshell was a 
"good" hunting dog enthusiast, and at one time had some of the 
best fox and coon dogs in that part of the country, and competed 
in many fox runs and roved the wooded lands of Grand County, 
Indiana many nights in search of racoon, however, later on after 
he had remarried, he obtained a couple different strains of 
rabbit hounds and settled down to farming and as a pass time, 
trained his dogs for hunting. 

He also was a gun fancier, and owned a case of fine 
hunting guns. 

He worked for the Aniconda Insultaed Wire Works in Marion, 
Indiana for many years, and when he retired from their service 
(in 1962) the employeer's of the company gave him a 30 - 30 
Calibre Deer Rifle for a going away present. That year I hunted 
deer near Harrison, Michigan and Ethel and I stayed with some 
friends, Clare and Harriot Heater, who owned a nice home about 
six miles out of Harrison, and I invited him to come there and 
hunt with me, which he did. 

I think the second day out he got a running shot at a buck- 
about an eight point, and broke of its hind legs, but it went 
on a short distance where it was finished off by another hunter, 
who claimed the deer. He said, "Unk, I would rather hunt 
rabbits when I can hear my dogs bark." That was his only 

deer hunting trip. 

In the year of 1959, while preparing ground for crops on 
his mother's farm, his father having passed away, he had a severe 
heart attack. His mother had him taken to Memorial Hospital in 
Marion, Indiana, where he was revived. He lived about a year but 
never regained his health, and passed away on June 18, 1970. 

He was laid to rest in Garden Of Memories Cemetery where 
his father and mother were buried. 

His wife, Margaret, is still living in the farm home about 
seven miles north of Marion and Ih miles west of State Road 
No. 9, known as the Huntington Pike.

Their present address as of July 24, 1974: RFD# 1,

The following article was written by request for publi- 
cation in the Eubank Genealogy History, by Orpha Foster, the 
wife and very able assistant of The Rev, Bryce H, Foster: 


Bryce and I rededicated our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ 
in the spring of 1954 in Florida at theFirst Baptist Church at 
Wabasso, where we were spending the winter. 

We were both baptised on Easter Sunday, 

We came home and started looking for a place to work, and 
after a few disappointments we ended up at the Barbee Illistrated 
Sunday School, helping an old gentleman, F, B, Miller, who had 
started this some ten or twelve years before. 

In December of 1955, we organized the present church, 
incorporating it with the State, under the name of the Barbee 
Community Church, which is non-denominational, 

Bryce started studying as soon as we rededicated and 
got some material from correspondence schools and was soon 
filling in, teaching at our very informal meetings. 


After a while we got a retired minister in for a year 
and then a seminary student for another year, and then Bryce 
took over the Sunday services. 

On May 17, 1970, the church had him ordained. When he was 
ordained he laid aside his contracting tools and took up the 
Bible entirely. Only when we decided to build this church 
building did he ever use those tools. 

He used his knowledge of building, with a very able 
architect, Oren E. Eubank, to finish a very nice $68,000.00 
church building. 

We are thrilled with our church building, but even more 
important is the church that God is building through Christ and 
his people. 

This church is composed of living stones, with Christ 
the chief cornerstone. Peter 2; 5. 

We can all be a part of this church as living stones. 

The Bible tells us, for all have sinned and come short of 
the glory of God. Romans 3; 23, and that the wages of sin 
is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus 
Christ our Lord; Romand 6* 23. 

God wants all to be a member of the church, and he provided 
the way. If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, 
and shall believe in thine heart, that God hath raised him 
from the dead, thou shalt be saved, Romans, 10; 9,

My father, Henry James Eubank, like many of his ancestors, 
was a plaster mason and builder by trade. He was raised on a 
farm and during his life time his love for the country drew 
him back to the farm many times. Therefore, I also grew up to 
be a farmer and builder. 

In those days very few school children had the opportunity 
to complete their education, and none of our family advanced 
their public schooling beyond the 8th grade, 

I worked an apprenticeship in the carpentry field with a 
very able builder, while still single, 

I married my first wife, Hattie Elizabeth Heinley, on 
April 5, 1906, and our son Austin was born January 7, 1907, and 
on September 24, 1907 Hattie passed away. 

When Austin was two years old he developed a very serious 
condition in his neck, and his doctor advised me to take him to 
the University Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, for examination, 
which I did. 

He was confined there for 13 weeks and they were successful 
in diagnosing and curing the ailment. 

While there, I worked on the university engineering building 
that was being built at that time, and became closely acquainted 
with Edward E, Sharrer from Detroit, who was the construction 
superintendent on the job for the Koch Construction Company, 
who were the builders. Over some of the weekends that followed 
Ed took me home with him. He had a lovely family and I appre- 
ciated visiting with them, and I think this was responsible for 
my trip to Detroit later on, 

IVhen Austin was released from the hospital I returned with 
him to my father's home on the farm near South Whitley, Indiana, 
where I had met Ethel Naomi Sickafoose, who later became my wife. 

In the spring of 1910, I purchased a building lot in the 
newly laid out Lee Addition, in South VJhitley, and digging a 
basement by hand, I started building a residence, with which to 
house us when we were married, and on July 12th Ethel and I were 

At this time, I was doing mostly plastering and cement work 
for a livelihood, and was desirous of expanding my knowledge in 
the construction field, so, in the summer of 1911 I packed my 
tools and leaving Ethel to look after the home I went to Detroit. 
Upon arriving I made my way to my friend's home, the Sharrer's, 

Ed informed me that Jackson and Maurice, General Building 
Contractors, had started a manufacturing building for the Metal 
Products Corporation, who manufactured rear axles for the Hudson 
automobiles, I immediately contacted then on the ground's where 
they were staking out the building, and was told that they already 
had their organization formed, but that I could go to work with 
my tools until something better turned up, I did just that, and 
it turned out just that way. The construction foreman went on a 
binge and I was asked to take over his duties while he was away. 
I stayed in that position until the job was completed. 


I also had charge of the shipping dock buildings, 
and just as we were finishing, I had the misfortune of 
falling from a slipping ladder and landed with my shin bones 
under me on the top of a 6" concrete driveway curb, which kept 
me from working for several weeks. 

I wrote my wife and had her come up and stay a while with 
me at Sharrer's, and we took a sightseeing trip by boat to Put 
In Bay, in Lake Erie. Then, as I was unable to work as yet, I 
returned home with her. 

In the late fall of 1911 my brother, Charles and I went to 
Kianistee, Michiaan, by train to look for some timber land, and 
Hammel Kahn And Company of Manistee took us to see several 
places. We first made a trip to Bear Lake,' in a Packard seven 
passenger car. That day it snowed and drifted and turned very 
cold, and we had to abandon the Packard when it stalled with a 
bursted wheel housing, and they picked us up in a two horse sleigh 
and returned us to Bear Lake. 

The next day we used the sleighs, but we didn't find anything 
we wanted those two days. 

The same company had a three-quarter section of land near 
Hoxeyville that was partially covered with saw timber, but the 
weather was rough and many roads blocked. However, we could get 
within one mile of this land by the R. G. Peters narrow gage 
logging railroad that ran from East Lake at Manistee, to Hoxey- 
ville; then on to their farthest logging camp. Old Camp S., 
about nine miles north and east of Hoxeyville. 

On the third morning we went across East Lake to Peters 
Saw Mill and boarded the Caboose of the early train to Camp S. 
They stopped the train at Ferguson Crossing about one mile south 
of the south line of the land and we walked the remainder of the 
trip and looked the timber over. 

This land laid in Wexford County, about three or four miles 
north and a little west of Hoxeyville, and the narrow gage ran 
across the northeast corner of the northeast quarter of the 
section, where the bulk of the saw timber lay on its way from 
Hoxeyville to Camp S., and afforded a place to deck timber, 
accessible to the railroad where the R, G. Peters Company could 
load it on cars and cart it to their mill at East Lake. 

There was a good gravel road running North from Hoxeyville, 
and just north of town a good gravel road running east and west, 
intersected, and about a mile west of this intersection near 
Ferguson Crossing, the road went north - then ended at the south 
line of the section in which the land in question was located. 

The road department had just let a contract to grade and 
gravel a new section of road from the end of this road north to 
the center of the section; thence west 'H mile to the west line 
of the section; thence north on the west section line to the northj 
section line where it connected with a road running east and west, 
which later became State Road No, 55. This new road gave us access 
to the southwest and southeast quarters, on the center line of the | 
section and cornered with the southwest corner of the northeast 
quarter, which was okay. 


We decided to buy this land, so we returned that evening on 
the same train loaded with logs for the mill. 

After making arrangements to purchase we went by train to 
Mesick - then to Cadillac - then caught the night train on the 
G, R, & I, Spur to Lake City, where we called our Uncle John 
Franklin Eubank by phone, who operated a general store at 
Morey about eight or nine miles north of Lake City, and he sent 
his son, Ralph, in with a sleigh to pick us up. The road was 
very rough and icy and we had to travel in the fields a big part 
of the way, Ralph had just arrived home with his buck deer that 
evening and Aunt Lydia prepared us a venison meal; that was quite 
a rare experience for us from Indiana at that time, as I had not 
as yet started to hunt deer. After a much appreciated visit we 
returned to our homes. 

The next summer I went up to Hoxeyville and stayed at the 
Carlson's, who lived just south of our land, and made arrange- 
ments to sell the timber, to the R. G, Peters Lumber Company - 
to be delivered at the aforesaid rail tracks, and made partial 
arrangements with Alf Scarbrough, to swamp out and skid, haul and 
deck the logs and bolts, which he later did. 

On September 19, 1912, Charles and his family shipped their 
goods by railroad boxcar to Cadillac, Michigan, and the family 
travelled over land by covered wagon, (see the life of Charles 
Franklin Eubank for details of this trip. Page 134,) 

Father and Mother, and Brother Lessel also had gone there, 
presumably at the same time, and in late October Ethel and I loaded 
our household goods into a railroad boxcar and billed them to 
Cadillac, and we and Austin went by passenger train to Cadillac, 
where Lessel and Clarence met us with two wagons and teams, and 
hauled our belongings to the land where we were assembling for 
the purpose of cutting the timber. 

When we arrived there we found Charles had built a small 
house on the southwest quarter of the section and Father, Mother 
and Lessel were starting a house on the southeast quarter, so I 
built a two room shack on the same quarter, about forty rods 
north of their place, 

I just got it finished and our goods moved in at night, 
and when I opened the door the next morning the snow fell in 
across the floor. The snow as I remember now, was about thirty 
inches deep on the level; there were many logs near, but we 
had to hunt and uncover them so as to get fire wood, as we had not 
as yet had time to prepare for the winter that was upon us, 

I hired a swamper and a skidder and father, Charles, Lessel 
and I cut logs all winter; as I remember, Clarence and Roy, 
Charles' boys, and my son, Austin, went to school, to a little 
country school that stood on the east side of the road just 
before the old road entered the newly made road at the south edge 
of our land, and just west of the Carlson farm buildings. Of 
course, they took their place in helping with the timber cutting 
(when they weren't in school), I remember that I was elected on 
the school board, just about as soon as we arrived there, and had 
to hire the teacher and manage the school business, for which at 
that time our work was donated, 


We cut about 300,000 board feet of saw logs, and 300 cords 
of bolts, with crosscut saws and had then hauled and decked or 
corded, near the railroad as previously mentioned, where they 
were loaded on bunk cars, and hauled to the R. G, Peters Saw 
Hill at East Lake, Manistee. 

We ceased cutting timber when the snow left in the spring, 
and Charles moved over on the Peterson farm, where there were 
good buildings, and ample open land to farm. Father, mother and 
Lessel decided to return to Marion, Indiana and I cleared up some 
rather open land on the quarter near the buildings that father 
and Lessel had erected and moved into their place, as they had 
a barn, 

I purchased a cow, so as to have our own milk and butter, 
bought back their horse, which I had previously owned, and a spare 
horse that Charles had, and started farming, with the idea to 
continue with the timber cutting come winter, and snow to work 

I raised Navy beans and potatoes and had a fair crop; then 
late in the summer a timber fire started somewhere not far from 
Manistee, and travelled all the way to near Hoxeyville, and in 
spite of our fighting, along with help from the land owners, it 
completely destroyed our timber. 

We managed to keep it from burning our buildings, but it 
did destroy our cabin that we had built over in the timber terri- 
tory, in which was stored most of our timber cutting tools, 

I felt that there was nothing left here to look forward to 
at the time, so in the fall of 1913 I disposed of the livestock, 
buggy and what farming tools I had, and Ethel took me to Harrietts 
to catch the train for Detroit, with the understanding that as soot 
as I got settled, she would follow, 

I got a job as carpenter boss on the 1200 foot manufacturing 
building that was just starting for theDodge Brothers Manufacturing 
Company at their plant sight, A strike soon developed among the 
construction workers, which tied up the job, I talked to the 
employment agent for the Dodge Company, and he gave me a bench i 
job in the factory, I could not stand breathing the metal dust 
in that department, so soon went looking for another job. 

My friend, Edward Sharrer, heard about the tieup on the Dodge 
job. and knowing that I had gone to work there, called me, saying 
that he had talked to the general superintendant for the Larou j 
Construction Company, who had the contract for the Mack Printing 
Company to be built on the corner of John R, and Elizabeth Streets, 
which had already begun construction and they were in need of a 
man in my capacity, I went to the job, and talked to the super- 
intendant and he gave me a job as assistant foreman, which developel 
into construction superintendant, which lasted until the nine storyj 
steel reinforced concrete building was finished. When I landed i 
this job I v;rote for my wife, Ethel, and she had Charles load and J 
ship the household goods, to Detroit, and she came on the train j 
and we started housekeeping again, in an apartment above Alva 
Eubank 's and John Bowman's Grocery Store and Meat Market, on 
Hamilton Boulevard, Detroit, 


From the mack job I went to the bakery job on Grand River, 
for the same contractors, until the job was ready to pour the 
first floor above the subbasement. At that time I decided to qo 
to Marion, Indiana, where my father, mother and brother, Lessel 
had gone, when they left Wexford County, Michigan, I had succe- 
eded this far in acquiring much knowledge and experience in 
structural steel and steel reinforced concrete construction, and 
was very much interested in architectural designing and drawing, 
so when we arrived in Marion, I set about to prepare myself for 
the occasion, I signed up with the international correspondence 
school for a course in architectural drawinq and engineering, 
and while I was studying this I did contracting of residences 
and farm buildings, and general construction, in and ' around 

Eventually I had prepared myself to design and draw plans 
for buildings, and had drawn a fevi house jobs for a contractor 
that I knew in Detroit. 

While the war with Germany was in progress and construction 
work was slow, I operated a real estate and insurance business, 
but as soon as business picked up again I went back into the 
building business. 

In 1924 I, with my wife and mother, visited an aunt in 
South Bend, and while there a cousin of mine who worked for the 
Indiana and Michigan Electric, mentioned that the company was 
getting ready to build a substation east of Notre Dame and was 
looking for a man to supervise the construction; said if I was 
interested he would take me out to see them, I was, and we called 
on the engineer at the sight, which resulted in me accepting the 

During the time this was under construction we moved to South 
Bend. We completed the job late in the fall of 1924; then I did 
some drafting. My first job here was to draw the plans for a 
church at Bertrand, Michigan, just north of the Indiana and 
Michigan State line. 

The following year, 1925, I built a new residence at 1S25 
Brookfield Street in Marquette Park Addition, where we lived for 
a few years. At the time, I had taken a job doing the drawing 
for residences in Marquette Park, Woodlawn and South Studebaker 
Additions to South Bend, and the supervision of construction 
for same, for the Home Grafters of South Bend, 

By about 1928 we had sold the Brookfield residence and 
built another at 2013 Freemont Street, in the same addition and 
I had gone to work for the Belleville Lumber & Supply Company, 
who owned and operated 11 lumber yards within a radius of 25 
miles of South Bend, and at that time were qettinq ready to 
build the 12th yard in South Bend, 

These yards belonged to William H, Mass and they already had 
a yard at Mishawaka, Indiana, and his first owned home yard was 
at North Liberty, Indiana. 

This yard was to have a modern up to date mill, electrically 
operated, and a dry kill, in which to dry lumber. 

My job was to draw plans and specifications for prospective 
home builders or owners, sell materials, and supervise construct- 
ion. I also wrote the contracts for all construction, where I 
drew the plans, between the owner and the Belleville Lumber & 
Supply Company, 


I started in by helping to construct the buildings for 
the new yard and mill, I worked in the aforesaid capacity for 
many years. In about 1936, due to the war, and when the depres- 
sion was at its lowest ebb, only two or three houses were built 
in both South Bend and Mishawaka, and Belleville's management 
and sales group had diminished from a healthy number of more 
than twenty employees to a meager eight or nine, including the 
truck drivers, and every employee was forced to take a two weeks 
vacation without pay, and my salary had diminished to $15.00 a 
week, for 5-9 hour days. I decided to try something else, so 
I joined partnership with an old grocery man and we rented a two 
room store building, on Portage near downtown; cut out a part 
of the partition and stocked a meat and vegetable room on one 
side and a grocery on the other side, and started in business. 
This was during the time when the W, P. A, was in force, and 
the U. S. Government gave the workers a meager check of a few 
dollars, payable every two weeks, and distributed surplus foods 
to the needy. 

We did a reasonably large business, but at a very small 
profit. I have a picture taken of the front of the store building, 
from the sidewalk, showing some advertisements, which, in those 
days were painted on the glass of the display windows. One of 
these adds said hamburger (3 lbs., 250:), and many other meat and 
grocery items at comparable prices. 

This business was out of my scope of experience, so as soon 
as the worst part of this terrible depression had ceased, and the 
Belleville Lumber Company's business had begun to climb, I went 
back to my old job. 

While operating the store we lived in an apartment near the 
store, and rented our 2013 Fremont Street home furnished; then, 
after selling the store business we vacated the renters and 
returned there for a while; then, purchased a four apartment 
house at 2507 Linden Avenue and moved there. 

We lived in the ground floor apartment, and rented the 
three others, and sold the Fremont Street property. < 

During this time, in about 1942, I purchased a farm of 
eighty acres, three miles North, and one mile east of Dowagiac, 
Michigan, on the Attwood Road, and in the year of 1943 we did 
considerable remodelling of the house and farm buildings, and 
rented the farm to a rather old couple that thought they could 
still farm, but really they were too old to even try farming, so I , 
discontinued my services with the Belleville Lumber Company in 1944 
and moved to the farm, I purchased some farming machinery, brood 
dows, milch cows, chickens, and a span of three and four year old 
horses, and started farming. 

This was at a time when, unless you had priorities, you could 
not purchase a tractor, so I was compelled to farm with horses; ' 
then, eventually, I got an opportunity to purchase a John Deere | 
tractor from a neighbor and sold the horses. At that time we did • 
general farming, milked cows, separated the milk, and sold the ' 
cream to the creamery. j 

We raised some wheat to sell, but mostly raised corn and 
oats, alfalfa and brohm hay and fed most of the crops to chickens, 
hogs and beef cattle. We specialized on white rock chickens, 
thoroughbred duroc hogs and beef cattle, 


raising our own chickens and hogs, and buying young western beef 
cattle to feed for market. We rented extra ground for corn and 
purchased only minerals and supplements to balance our feeds. 
This experience we found to be profitable, and we all loved the 
farm very much. However, there came a time in 1953, when my 
wife was seventy years old, and I was following close behind, so 
we decided to quit farming. 

I had the opportunity of returning to the Belleville Lumber & 
Supply Company and take up where I had left off in 1944. 

By this time our son, Robert, had completed his time with the 
U. S. Service, and education at Michigan State College, and had 
married, so they took over the farm work and Ethel and I returned 
to South Bend; rented a furnished apartment, and in February of 
1953 I began once more to work for the Belleville Lumber Company, 
who by this time had turned the yard over to the W. H. Mass 
Wholesale Department of the company, and moved the retail lumber 
and building materials department to East Jefferson Street, down- 
town South Bend, Indiana. 

I did real well financially the last hitch; was there from 
February, 1953 until January, 1955, when I retired from Belleville. 
During this last period I drew the plans for several new homes 
and commercial buildings, and much remodelling, and when I let the 
jobs to contractors I usually supervised the construction for the 
owners and Belleville Lumber Company. 

My last two jobs that I did before retiring I contracted 
through Belleville Lumber Company. One, a country residence near 
the Indiana State Road No, 55, west of Mishawaka, and the other, 
the Gold Star Bakery on Western Avenue, South Bend, Indiana, which 
detained me somewhat in getting started on our vacation in Florida. 

We went to Florida in January or February of 1955, going first 
to Kissimmee to see my brother, Lessel and family, who had gone 
there in the fall of 1954 to make Kissimmee their home. 

We visited them there; then went over to Daytona to see 
my cousin, Alva Eubank and family; then on to Wabasso and the 
Atlantic Coast where we visited two of my cousins and their 
families, the Swaims and Clocks, on my mother's side of the house. 
Here we stayed a month and did some Indian River and Atlantic surf 
fishing. We then toured other portions of Florida sightseeing and 
returned home in March. 

We had the farm up for sale, and after selling it, we had a 
public auction, selling the livestock, farming equipment, household 
furniture and all but a medium sized U haul load of personal belong- 
ings, attached to the trailer hitch, we boarded our auto for Florida, 

We arrived at Kissimmee, Florida about the first of May, 1955, 
and rented a furnished apartment for three months, and during this 
time we purchased a one story house with a 100 foot square corner 
lot on Ingram Street, which we remodelled and added to, making an 
extra three room apartment with bath and front porch, to rent. 
Afterwards, I used the apartment as an office and drawing room. 
We then purchased a mobile home and set it in the Brockway Court, 
one mile south of VJabasso. This was about 2^5 miles from Wabasso 
Beach and about nine miles from the Sebastian Inlet, from the 
ocean to the Indian River, which took in most of our river and surf 


fishing territory, and was 85 miles from our home in Kissimmee, 

The Metzqers from South Bend, who were general contractors, 
and whom I had serviced, from theBel levil le Lumber Company, for 
several years, had purchased the Kissimmee Lumber Company, and 
requested my assistance, and as soon as we were settled I went 
to work part time for them, drawing plans and assisting them 
in sales. 

I was 69 years old at this time, and it was my intention to 
retire when I decided to go to Florida. However, between the 
lumber company's work, which included much F, H, A, drawing, 
and demands by the general public, it seemed to have changed 
my mind somewhat, and I was forced to lock up at times and 
retreat to our hide-out at VVabasso, in order to get some 
recreation and rest. 

I loved my work very much, and in 1957 I drew the plans for 
the Elks Temple Building, Kissimmee Elks Lodge No, 1873, and 
supervised the construction for the Elks. 

I continued with my work here until May 1, 1960, when I 
decided that it was time for me to retire in reality. 

During this time my wife, Ethel's eyesight had failed - 
having had an operation on the right eye for glaucoma, the left 
eye being completely blind. We decided to return to our residence 
in Indiana. 

We sold our place in Kissimmee, lock, stock and barrel, rented 
a U haul, and loaded it with our personal items, and returned to 
our son, Bobs, v;ho lived near to our old farm neighborhood, until 
we could locate a place to live in that vicinity. 

We purchased our present location at Twin Lakes, about a mile 
across the fields east from our old farm home, and installed a 
mobile home there, and for the next five years we spent from nay 
1st, to November 1st here, and from November 1st to May 1st, in 
our mobile home in Florida, and this to me was the ideal arrange- 
ment for us. 

In 1966 my wife had to have a serious operation, and because 
of this, and not being able to see we have never returned to 
Florida since. I have discontinued doing any more work for the 
public. I am now 8S years old, and my last job of any importance 
was desianing and drawina the plans for a non denominational 
church, known as the Barbee Communitv overlooking little Barbee 
Lake, in Kosciusko County, Indiana. The minister, a former buildin 
contractor, and now an ordained minister, who is my sister's 
daughter's son, the Rev. Bryce H. Foster, (see paaes 150 and 152). 

All of my life, since 1900, I have been an ardent lover of 
hunting and fishing, and have spent much of my spare time doing 
just that. Since 1940 I have participated in many deer hunting 
trips, both the Michigan U. P., and the L. P. in search of the 
wily v/hite tail. For the past few years I have confined my deer 
hunting to Cass County territory, where I have killed three deer, 
the last of which I killed in 1972, when I was 86 years old, and 
I am planning on hunting again in November, 1974, I had a shot 
at a big rack last November, but he was a little to far away for 
the shot gun, and I can't use my 300 savaae in this territory. 
So long for now, 

Oren E, Eubank.

As I look back on the life of my father, Alva Alfred Ruble, 
it seems that it was rather legendary. His move to Michigan by 
covered wagon - leaving loved ones and acquaintances and the 
"good land," to dwell among strangers, and on rather poor land. 
Then there were many subsequent moves - all the way to southern 
Tennessee and back. To us now as we look back, he was something 
of the type of Abraham, as he to was a friend of God, and had 
daily communion with God; family wise, his was somewhat on the 
order of the Patriarch Jacob's, except eight sons and one daughter, 
instead of twelve sons and one daughter, 

God moves in mysterious ways - his wonders to perform, v;hy 
did Alva Ruble leave loved ones to go into a strange land - then 
to other strange lands in subsequent moves? This has often been 
the topic of conversation among his sons: Exposed to all kinds 
of communities and living conditions as the family grew up and 
gave each child a wide range of experience. The family became 
tradesmen, businessmen, church workers and ministers. Like 
Abraham, Alva Ruble was zealous for God's cause; a Prophet in 
his own right; a farmer - preacher. It is worthy to note that 
although he was never a full time pastor except for two years, 
his three youngest sons have served 33 years each for a total of 
99 years in the active ministry, at the end of the present year; 
and yes, our mother, Ida Peal, was indeed a "Mother in Israel," 
and stood by our father all the way.

Eliza Jane (Eubank) Ketner, (the daughter of Joseph and

Charles Elmer Ketner, born September 1, 1883; 
John Floyd Ketner, born July 1, 1893; 
Daisy Pearl Ketner, born July 19, 1895. 


Joseph B, Ketner was a blacksmith by trade, and at one time 
prior to moving to Michigan, they lived in Van Buren, Grant County, 
Indiana, and he owned and operated a shop, about a block or two 
north of the main street crossing there, and at the same time we 
lived on the main east and v/est street, a few city blocks west 
of the main street crossing. Our families were very closely 
associated. William Henry Ketner, "Bill we called him," was 
away from home, out west much of the time. Charles v;as a little 
older than I, but he and I spent much of our idle time together. 
Floyd was seven years younger than I, and Pearl five years younger, 
and of course, the difference in our ages kept us apart generally. 
My family missed them very much when they moved to Michigan, which 
was July 1, 1905, and I never saw Uncle Joseph again after that. 

They eventually moved to Battle Creek, Michigan, and lived 
there until Uncle Joe's death. 

He was buried in Rees Cemetery at Battle Creek. 

Eliza Jane (Eubank) Ketner, and Ida Rosana (Eubank) (Miller) 
(Shaffer, were sisters and both married brothers, Joseph B, and 
John Nelson Ketner, respectively, who by this time, had been dead 
many years. 

Aunt Jane lived with her sister, Ida for sometime previous 
to her death, and I remember on one occasion not long before she 
passed away, my wife, Ethel, and I, were visiting with Marcella 
and Jay Jones, and other relatives around Lake City, Michigan, 
and we called at Aunt Ida's home to see she and Aunt Jane, and 
when we entered the house. Aunt Jane was sitting on a chair near 
the door. I v/alked past her and when I turned to look at her, 
she exclaimed, "well, if it isn't Emmett." 



I was amazed at her aptness of mind and memory at her 
advanced age. She passed away April 13, 1950, in Lake 
City, Michigan, at the ripe old age of 95 years, 7 months, 
and 19 days^ the longest span of life of any one person 
recorded in this book, at the present time, January 1, 1974, 

She was laid to rest in the Lake City, Michigan cemetery,

As I don't have a biology sketch of John Franklin Eubank's 
life, I will just write of him and his family from memory, which 
goes back to when Uncle John lived on a farm west, perhaps a 
couple of miles from Banquo, Indiana, 

This was in about 1900, and I shall hereafter refer to him 
as "Uncle," He was about 42 years young and I was a lad of about 
14 years. Along about that time he and my father did some car- 
pentry and masonry construction work together; sort of a 
partnership affair. It v/as about this time that Arthur Eubank, 
Uncle Aaron Eubank's son, left his father's home in Marion, 
Indiana on horseback bound for Colorado, He had stopped at 
Uncle Johns to say goodby to them, and when he left there he 
rode his horse along the side of the road to keep him off of 
the gravel. 

To us boys he was a cowboy, and the next day when we stopped 
there to call on them, we followed the horse's hoof prints for 
some distance westward along the road, and when I think of it 
now, I sometimes wonder just what was going through our minds at 
that time. 

Sometime later on Uncle moved to the Green farm, northeast 
of Lafountain, Indiana, and I remember that my brother, Everett 
and I, visited them there over a weekend. They were having 
Uncle John and Aunt Ida Ketner, and a cousin of ours, Delia 
(Eubank) Schofield and her husband, Joseph, and others there, 
and on Saturday we took a tent and camping equipment to the 
Missinewa River, and pitched the tent near a flowing well not 


far from the Conner's mill, and Uncle John Eubank, Uncle John 
Ketner, and Joe Schofield, and us boys, camped and fished that 
niqht and the next morning. 

Then, on Sunday, they served a big dinner and frozen ice 
cream and we had a real outing. 

Uncle eventually quit farming and purchased a general 
store at what was known as Troy City, just a few buildings, 
located in the oil field on State Road 218 about four miles east 
from State Road 9 and 37, in Huntington .County, Indiana, He 
operated this store, I think, until Marcella was born, which 
was in 1904, I was 17 years plus then, and I visited them 
there and went with Uncle in a tv/o horse wagon to Warren, Indiana, 
to pick up a shipment of groceries for the store. Not long after 
that, because of Aunt Lydia's health condition, they sold out and 
moved to Morey, Michigan, a little place north of Lake City, on 
State Road No, 66, where Uncle owned and operated a general store 
and cream testing station. 

In 1911 my brother, Charles and I purchased a three quarter 
section of timber land near Hoxeyville, about forty miles west of 
Uncle's store, and while there we went over to Cadillac and boarded 
a train on the G,R,&I, Branch Road to Lake City. We arrived about 
dark and called Uncle that we were there, and he sent Ralph in with 
horse and sleigh and picked us up. The snow was very deep and we 
drove most of the six or seven miles through the fields. Upon 
arrival we found that Ralph had just returned that evening with 
a buck deer, so we had venison to eat and a very nice visit with 
them and Ralph and Marcella, who were at home yet, Marcella being 
only seven years old. 

Uncle eventually sold the store and retired to a cottage at 
Missaukee Lake at the edge of Lake City, and in about 1934, when 
Ethel and I were operating the Porgage Grocery and Market at 
South Bend, Indiana, Ethel, Bob and I took a fishing trip to Bear 
Lake, Michigan - camped in the tent at Bear Lake there for a couple, 
of days; then drove east across country to Lake City, and camped 
in the Lake Missaukee Park near Uncle John's cottage for several 
days, and Uncle John and us had a lot of fun fishina and a v^onder- 
fui visit with them. At this time several of the Eubank relatives 
were living there, namely Aunt Jane Ketner and her son, VJilliam; 
Aunt Lib Mitchell; Aunt Ida (Ketner) (Miller) Shaffer, and Edith 
Moon, Lena, (Eubank) (Miller), Travis's dauqhter, Lena and Frank 
Travis had purchased property there and did move there later j ^^^ 
were there visiting at the time. In 1919 Uncle David Eubank came 
east on a visit, and he and Uncle John came to Marion, Indiana 
and visited us for a few days, and from that time on, as long as 
Aunt Lydia lived, we made periodical trips to Lake City to visit i 
them. Uncle's last visit with us was in about 1942 at our apart- 
ment house at 2507 Linden Avenue, South Bend, Indiana; early in 
the morning, I took him to Elkhart to catch the Big Four Train 
to go to his son, Alva's, at Lafountain, Indiana, He had remarked 
at the breakfast table that this would probably be his last trip 
to visit us, and as he spoke, the big tear drops rolled down over , 
his cheeks. He loved to live, and I think he got more pleasure 
out of life than anyone else I ever knew, 



Alva Eubank, (the son of John F, and Lydia (Ketner) 
Eubank,) and Belva (Bowman) Eubank, born November 11, 1884, 
were united in marriage November 25, 1903. 

To this anion were born two sons and one daughter. 
Glen Eubank, born November 4, 1904; 
Claud Eubank, born March 17, 1913; 
Opal Eubank, born October 15, 1919. 

Opal passed away August 3, 1922 on the Bois farm. 

After Alva and Belva were married, on November 25, 1903 he 
worked for Spauldings Grocery in Banquo, Indiana. His job was 
to equip and drive a Huxter wagon over several different routes 
that extended from the store in separate directions throughout 
the farming territory, a different route each day and on the same 
day each week. 

He carried a complete line of groceries, cured meats and 
other supplies, used by the farmers, and he would drive in close 
to the farmhouse and the housewife could select the things she 
needed. Pretty much like trading at the grocery store in those 
days. He purchased a home in Banquo and lived there until in 
the fall of 1914, when he and his brother-in-law, John Bowman, 
started a partnership grocery and meat market on Hamilton Boule- 
vard in Detroit, Michigan. After two years they sold out and 
Alva, with his family, Belva, Glen and Claud, moved to Morey, 
Michigan, where his father, John F. Eubank operated a grocery 
and cream testing station, and worked with him. After two years, 
in 1918, he moved his family back to Indiana to the Bois farm near 
Lafountain, and began a farming career. They stayed on this farm 
for about 22 or 23 years. In 1942 he quit farming and moved to 
Marion, Indiana, v/here they operated a food market on North Wash- 
ington Street, until about 1953, when he retired and went to Day- 
tona Beach, Florida, to live near where his youngest son, Claud 
lived at that time, 

Belva's health had begun to fail and in 1957 they returned 
to Gas City, Indiana, where their son. Glen, and family lived, 
and purchased a home at 231 South C. Street, 46933, in order to 
be near them. They still reside there as of this date, January

Ralph and Sue lived in Lansing, Michigan for many years 
and Ralph worked for the Olds Automobile Manufacturing Company, 
from which he had been retired, in about the year of 1953. At 
that time they lived at 315 Barns Avenue. They purchased a 
home at Daytona Beach, Florida shortly afterv/ards and moved 
there to live. 

My wife, Ethel and I visited them there in 1955, at their 
home across the river, and the last time we visited them at 
Daytona, they had purchased an apartment uptown, near U.S. Road 
No. 1, and built a new garage with an apartment on the second 
floor where they lived, separate from the apartment. Ralph had 
just had a cerebral stroke and was convalescing from the affects. 
I believe this was in May of 1964. Ralph's brother, Alva and 
his son, Claud, and their families, were still living there, in 
Daytona, and we visited them also, Ralph and Sue, because of 
his physical condition, shortly afterwards, moved back to their 
place on Barns Avenue, Lansing, Michigan, where they remained until 
Ralph passed away on September 10, 1964. 

Sue is at present (February 3, 1973,) approaching 84 years 
of age, and recently gave up caring for their home at 815 Barns 
Avenue, and moved to an apartment at 3031 South Washington Avenue, 
Apartment N. I., Lansing, Michigan, 48910.

Marcella (Eubank) Jones, (the daughter of John F, and

Jay passed away Wednesday, June 19, 1968 at their country

Services were held at Youngs Parlors, and internment was 

in the Lake City Cemetery, 

Present address as of December 25, 1974: RFD# 2, 
Lake City, Michigan, 49651, 

This recording reproduced by the writer from an editorial ■" 

published by the Lake City, Michigan newspaper. The Waterfront, 
on October 23, 1974, 


Marcella Jones was two years old when her family came from 
Wabash County, Indiana in 1906, John and Lydia Eubank chartered 
a railroad boxcar where they lived in LaFountain, Indiana, and 
loaded one end with their household goods, and the other with 
their team of horses and impliments. The car was then shipped 
to Manton, Michigan, where John moved the contents to the Morey 
Store about six miles north of Lake City, on what is now State 
Road 66. 

This was a general store which also housed the local post 
office, cream and pickle stations, Marcella's brother, Alva 
and her brother-in-law. Homer Arnold, ran the creamery and 
pickle departments. When Marcella was 14 years old she also 
helped in the business and did the paper work. for the company. 
Life was hard for the Eubank *s at the store and Marcella learned 
young how to work. She recalled, in 1971: I would take the 
team and stone boat, and pick up camp # 4's laundry from the 
train and take it to Mrs. Stewarts. She would wash it and I 
would take it back to the train, to go to camp. 

I got $2.00 for this and thought it was a gold mine. The 
logging train ran past the Morey Store on its way to Jennings. 
My daddy and I would get on the caboose and deliver cases of 
eggs to town. I was what they termed a tomboy, herding cows 
to pasture and chopping wood to burn. We made it the hard way. 




She also chauffeured for her father, who never drove a car, 
delivering supplies to the lumber camps. John also hauled freiqht 
with horse conveyances, the six miles to Lake City. fiarcella 
"stressed" things were hard, but we v/ere a loving family. Dad 
lost money in the store. Good natured, he couldn't say "no," 
when people needed credit, but he still had to pay for his 
supplies, however, we had a lot of fun, f^iother was quiet, and 
I guess I take after dad who had the gift to gab, 

Marcella still flushes with the happiness she knew when she 
met Jay Jones at 16, She said he caught up v/ith me. Jay walked 
eight miles to see me; didn't have a car or a buggy. He was from 
Luther; spent four years in the U, S, Service, VJhen the couple 
decided to get married, Marcel la's parents told her she would have 
to work and earn her own clothes, so she went to Grand Rapids, 
where she worked in a cigar factory, and a dime store. She 
remembered, "I made $12, a week and paid $4. for board, room and 
washing to r-lrs. Minnie Smith. 

Jay had been working at Boyne City in a foundry. On February 
12, 1923 he and Marcella were married. 

They stayed in Grand Rapids until April when they came back 
to Lake City, due to the illness of Jay's father, who was farming. 
Marcella asked, "can you imagine a bride moving into a two room 
bachelor's quarters. He was a dear old man though and we got 
along so good. 

Jay and Marcella were happy and had a good life, even though 
times were hard. 

She said we milked cows and raised beans. Cream was .12(£ a 
pound and eggs .10(t a dozen. I used to walk a couple of miles 
after the cows. Nights we went horseback riding. I used to start 
after the cows about four o'clock and had to hunt them and get them 
back in time to fix supper. 

Marcella and Jay had one child, a son, James, in 1926, who 
married the former Wanda Everett, also of Lake City. 

James had three children, a son who is a school teacher, a 
daughter who works at Dow Chemical in Midland, and a son still 
in high school. 

Marcella lost Jay five years ago. She said he was a wonderful 
husband, and she missed his companionship very much as we got along 
so well together. 

Today life is still rough for Marcella, who has a hard time 
making ends meet on $200. a month, even though she has built up 
her social security by doing housework. She hauls slab wood from 
the sawmill with her 1940 Ford tractor and small trailer. After 
unloading it, she bucks it up with a sweede saw to use in her 
combination wood and gas stove, to save fuel. 

She also uses the tractor to disk her garden, where she 
raises and cans much of her food; runs a roto tiller and lawn 
and raises rabbits and chickens. 

Selling avon cosmetics and keeping deer hunters in season 
are also ways Marcella adds to her income. 

She has a 1967 Ford car she drives to Midland once a month 
to see her family, and expects to drive it another ten years. 

Marcella's sister, Daisy, past "1, is still living and she 
has her son and family and many nieces, nephews and cousins. 


She enjoys visiting. 

Even though Marcella's life hasn't been on easy street, 
she still bubbles over with her love of life and oeople. She 
remarked "life" is doing for others, going places and mingling 
with people. The kids are good to me, and I've always said it 
pays to be nice to everybody - you get it in return. 

Probably the oldest settler in the Morey area, Marcella will 
be 70 years old on November 8, 1974, which makes her even more of 
an amazing woman. 

The Water Front is also proud that Marcella Jones has been 
a correspondent for ten years, faithfully reporting her neighbor- 
hood news. She also belongs to the Senior Citizens Club, two 
ladies aids, and the Auxiliary of the American Legion. 



I am also proud to have the opportunity to record the fore- 
going editorial, and having enjoyed many visits with Marcella and 
Jay over the past several years, I am including the following 
hunting experience. 

As previously arranged, during the open season of 1949, I 
drove from the farm here near where we now live, to Jay and 
Marcella Jone's farm home, eight miles north of Lake City on 
State Road 66, and where Marcella still lives at this time, and 
hunted the illusive white tail, in company with Jay, Ralph Eubankj 
Marcella's brother and her son, James, 

I stayed a week - had a private double bed to sleep in and 
had good food prepared by Marcella herself. 

The four of us rode with Ralph in his Olds Sedan and we 
hunted pretty much together, 

James got a spike the first day - over in the hills, east 
of where they lived, and one day James ran into a black bear 
as he topped one of the hills east of the big swamp, I was over 
on the next ridge north and could see the bear, but wasn't close 
enough to get a shot. There was about four inches of snow on 
the ground, and looking from one knob over to another snow covered 
knob, even if it was quite a distance, it wasn't hard to see what 
was going on. 

As James approached the top of the ridgej which slanted down- 
ward very quickly to the east and away from him, a black bear 
that was quite large, came up the slope toward him. As soon as 
the bear topped the ridge, James stopped, but the bear not seeing 
James, kept on moving toward him at a very fast pace, James 
brought the 30/30 carbine to bear on the animal's chest at a 
range of less than a hundred feet and fired. The bullet struck 
the bear in the left shoulder, but failed to penetrate a vital 
spot, and he increased his speed and ran almost into a second 
hunter, and both were surprised by the other's sudden appearance, 
I don't know if the second hunter shot at the bear, but he told 
me he was so scared that he couldn't think what to do, and appar- 
ently the bear was scared even worse, and in avoiding the hunter, 
he ran into a large rather decayed stump that was as large as he 
and knocked about half of it out of the ground, 


I picked up the tracks at this point, and followed them down to 
a small swamp, I had a rule with me and I measured the length 
of his jumps, and until he entered the swamp they would have 
averaged about 19 feet each, 

I picked up three of the boys at the little swamp, and we 
followed the tracks across the small swamp to the big swamp. 
Night was nearing - I had a whistle with me, so I stayed at 
the edge of the swamp and blew the whistle occasionally to guide 
them out in the event they became lost, 

Ralph Eubank, who had considerable experience hunting bear, 
and James Jones, the one that shot the bear in the shoulder and 
his father. Jay, followed the tracks into the swamp. They tracked 
him to a small stream where he had bathed his wound and the snow 
and ice there was red with blood. His track then led into the 
more dense part of the swamp, and they came to a spot where they 
could no longer walk upright, so they stooped down and looked 
under the brush, but saw nithing but what they thought was a big 
black stump. 

By this time it was getting quite dark, so they decided to 
give up the hunt until morning, when they could see and would 
return and proceed with the tracking. 

About that time they heard a noise in the brush, and they 
took another look, and the black stump was gone. They came 
out of the swamp and we went home, and that night it came a 
big v;et snow that hung on the bushes, so we had to give up the 
chase, Ralph said that he might have known that there weren't 
any black stumps of that dimension in that swamp and things 
could have been different. The hunter that was behind James, 
and had the experience with the bear, and another hunter, a friend 
of his, were staying where I did and were hunting with us that day, 
and they were from Lansing, Michigan, 

Marcella is my first cousin, and while I didn't get my buck, 
I did have a nice visit with them and "enjoy every minute of ray" 
time, just having the opportunity of being there with them,

Elem P, Mitchell was a school teacher, a carpenter and a 
farmer. He taught school near Warren, Indiana, and in Jasper 
County, Indiana, They moved to Tennessee in about the year of 
1889, and he taught school there also, about 9 years altogether. 
In Banner Springs he had a newspaper, The Banner Star, They 
lived in Morgan and Fentress Counties, in Tennessee; they moved 
to Indiana in 18S3, (VJorld Fair time in Chicago,) and moved to a 
farm near Marion, Indiana, in about 1906; later moved to North 
Dakota and purchased a farm there when the ground was covered 
with snow. Later found the land to be gravelly, and let it go 



They moved farther south, and took a claim, and proved 
it, after which they moved from the farm to Tappen, North 
Dakota - worked some in Bismark, North Dakota; then in 1925, 
they left there and went to Danville, Illinois, where their 
son, Harry and family lived, and spent the winter; then in 
the spring, they went to Battle Creek, Michigan and purchased 
a small farm west of Battle Creek, near the Frank Travis farm, 
where they raised rabbits and did gardening, Mrs, Mitchell 
worked in Battle Creek, in a dressmaking shop for a while; 
Elem became unable to work, and they gave up the farm and 
went to Battle Creek to live. He was placed in the county 
hospital for care and treatment, where he passed away on July 
15, 1934, 

Later on Elizabeth went to Lake City, Michigan, where she 
made her home with her sister, Eliza Jame Ketner and her son, 
William Ketner, at beautiful Missaukee Lake, A few years 
later Elizabeth became ill, and her son, Harry Verlin, went up 
to see her and took her to the hospital at Cadillac, Michigan, 
where the doctor found her to be afflicted with cancer of the 

Harry took her back to Lake City and placed her in a 
nursing home and she had to be fed intravenously with glucose, 

Harry was obliged to return home, so he kissed his mother 
goodby and left for Danville, Illinois, after which Harry's wife, 
I^^arie left Danville to go to Lake City, to be with his mother, 
but soon after she left, a long distance call came from someone 
saying that his mother was sinking fast. 


Reuben Eubank met Marie at Cadillac and took her to 
Lake City, to the convalescent home, but Elizabeth was in 
a coma, and passed away in about an hour after Marie arrived 

Harry then returned for the funeral, and after the 
service was over at Lake City, the cortege started for Battle 
Creek, where the burial was to take place in the Reese Cemetery, 
alongside of her husband, Elem Perviance Mitchell. 

The cortege stopped a short ways south of Cadillac for 
lunch. It was a bitter cold day and a blizzard was in full 
force, and the funeral director questioned if or not they 
should turn back, however, they did decide to take another road 
away from the main storm, and finally found a direct road south 
to Battle Creek that was passable, and finally arrived at the 
cemetery some hours late and found a number of relatives bundled 
up in their cars and in the tent, awaiting their arrival. Among 
whom were Oren Emmett Eubank and his wife, Ethel, and Lessel 
Addison Eubank, and his wife, Bessie, who had driven up from 
South Bend, Indiana,

at the age of 84 years, 11 months and 13 days. 


I went a short time to high school and dropped out. 
Went to Indiana Business College at Marion, Indiana, two 
winters, and took shorthand and typewriting. 

Worked a short while on books in a lumber yard and in my 
Uncle John Ketner*s planning mill. 

In 1906 I went to Chicago and worked in Western Electric 
Plant on assembling telephone equipment. Took review course in 
shorthand at the Gregg School in Chicago, at night. . 

Got job as stenographer n an office at Woodstock, Illinois. 

Then came the business slump of 1907, and my boss closed 
his office and left for Oregon, where he had a fruit farm. 


I returned to Chicago and got a job with a boxboard sales 
office and worked till the summer of 1908, when I quit and went 
I home to North Dakota to spend a summer there. 

Since I was at home with my parents and they were invited 
to the wedding of a daughter of our good neighbor, the John J. 
Lohrs , I was invited too, to the wedding of r-lrs, Beulah Lohr, 
to Mr. Claud R, Rowley. There I met the sister of Beulah, f-iiss 
M, Marie Lohr, 

Later I returned to Chicago - got my old job back and 
worked until the next spring, I then quit and went to Indiana 
to work with my cousin Ellis Ruble at Warren, Indiana, This 
was in March of 1908, 

We did concrete and carpenter work through the next 

winter, which at times was below zero; also did some ice 


Ellis used to take large log and frame barns, with siding 

and roof pretty well gone, to repair, by putting in a concrete 

foundation, and if barn frame was to be moved to another location, 

would put rollers under the frame and move it over onto the new 

The second winter we talked about going to Oklahoma or to 
Florida, to work in concrete where it wasn't freezing cold, but 
time came and Ellis decided not to go, but I had a little extra 
money and started out for Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 

On the way I got acquainted with a young fellow 


who was going to the same place and we roomed together a while 
after we got there. 

I didn't find a job there so I went to Chandler, Oklahoma 
to see Uncle Joe Ketner's family. While there, I got a letter 
from the brother of a friend in Muscogee, who thought he had a 
job in the bank for me, but didn't get the job (when they found 
I was from out of town.) I went to work bookkeeping for a 
piano store. Another fellow got the job as he could play the 



I went into a lumber yard and saw they were rebuilding | 
their sheds - man in office said their yard man was busy 
supervising the work and they needed someone for the office, 

so I worked there for about two weeks until they got the . 


sheds done. j 


They had 29 line lumber yards. 

I then went to the typewriter repair office and asked 
them if they knew of any jobs open. They said they had just 
fixed a typewriter for a party of engineers, so I went to see 
them. I started working for them, typing up rough copy and J 
making tracings for their building and electrical inspector. 

One engineer got scarlet fever and they took him to the 
pest house. The chief engineer in the N, Y. office said I i 
could go with a party assigned to Shreveport, La., and Little 
Rock, Arkansas, and after that project was finished, they went 
back east for vacation and new assignments. These engineers were 








from the National Board of Fire Underwriters of New York 
City. I wanted to look into something up at Coffeville, 
Kansas, so I went up there and then later back to Indiana and 
worked for Ellis again, about two weeks. Then, I got a letter 
from the chief of the party of engineers saying if I wanted to 
come with them again to meet them in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 
which I did on July 11, 1911, 

Altogether I was with them on the inspection of 57 cities, 
and typed up all the rough copy and final copy, to be sent in 
to the New York office for printing, 

I went in to the New York office to make the maps for the 
reports and was there about a year. 

It was about this time that Marie Lohr and I were married, 
which took place on February 15, 1916, at the home of Mrs, C. R, 
Rowley, Marie's sister at Edgely, North Dakota, Then went to 
Newark, New Jersey, and worked for State Rating Bureau about a 
year and a half; then back to New York to work for an insurance 
broker a few months, 

I then went to work for the National Automobile Insurance 
Underwriters Conference and was with them about five years, when 
we moved west to Danville, Illinois to work for an insurance 
printing firm, 

I was there 19 years, about a year of which I was acting 

During World War Two, Betty (that is Elizabeth) came to 
Michigan to visit a cousin at Lake City, and stopped at Lansing 
on her way home and got a job with the Home Defense outfit and 
stayed on there, 


Margaret was just graduating from high school in 
Danville and took a Civil Service exam and passed it. 
They wanted her to take a job there, but she decided to go 
to Lansing to be with Betty. 

About that time we said to ourselves, "we might as 
well go to Lansing too," and so we did, 

Marie went on ahead of me, and I arrived in Lansing in 
May of 1943, I helped to unload some freight and aot back 
trouble, and didn't get to go to work until about August 3rd, 
when I took a job with the Abrams Instrument Corporation - was 
with them twenty months until they got their war contracts done 
and then I was laid off, I then went to night school that the 
Government was sponsoring, and took a course on drafting, I ^ 
met a man from lands department and he took me down to personnel, 
and they got me a job with engineering and architect section, 
conservation department, doing drafting work of bridges over 
small streams, I worked with them about 12 years and retired 
on January 19, 1957. 

A Mr. Albert Sargent was with us as architect and retired 
before I did. I worked for him about two years drawing house 
plans. He was our very best friend. He went to the hospital 
January 12th - had two operations and passed away February 9, 

It was a rather long road that brought us to the wonderful 
State of iiichigan.

Sarah Catherin, known by me as Aunt Kate, didn't

and this letter v;as very well preserved, after more than 57 
years lapse of time, since it was written, 

Alfred had mailed it to me about a week ago, on April 5, 
1973, asking me to return it. After reading it I thought its 
recordina would be appreciated by all that knew her, I did 
not knov; of its existence, until it came to me in the mail. 

By the writer . 


As I draw this genealogy research work to a close, 
I regret that I haven't been able to record something 
pertaining to the many more of the accomplishments of 
each and every one of the relatives recorded herein, but 
without the necessary information I could not do so. 

My first request for subscriptions was made to Floyd 
Mathias in person, on Narch 22, 1973, and he was my first 
subscriber, with a $20,00 bill. 

On June 3, 1974, I received my last subscription, col- 
lected for, or paid for in advance, making 54 H books sold. 

I had originally planned to start publishing when 80 books 
were sold, as my contract with the publishers was for 100 books, 
at a cost not to exceed S20,00 each, delivered to the purchaser. 

At that time I had the promise of at least 70 subscriptions, 
however, as time went on and neared the publishing date things 
began to tighten up and I fell short of my required goal by 
more than 25%, 

I talked to my son, Robert about it, and he said to go 
ahead with the publishing and he would make up the deficit, 
until there can be enough more books sold to pay the cost. 

This is the fourth manuscript that I have typed during 
the almost eight years of research, and because of numerous 
corrections and additions during the last year it has became 
more or less soiled. 

It is now finished, except that I am retyping it and 
should have it done soon, 

I have designated the relatives that have purchased 
books, up until it goes to press, by using a prefix thus, 
*, in front of their name on their recorded page, and I 
personally thank each and every one that in any way assisted 

I have several subscribers that have said they wanted 
a book v/hen they have been made available. 

They v/ill be notified when books are ready to deliver, 
after which the remaining unsold books will be available to 
any relative by writing to:
