James Davis Eubank

James Davis Eubank was born in Clarke County, Kentucky, February 21, 1867, and lived on the parental farm until twelve years old, when the family moved to Pleasant Hill, Mo.  He went to the district school in Kentucky and later to the public schools in Pleasant Hill, and at the age of seventeen accepted a position with the Citizens' National Bank.  He remained there for two years and was then appointed assistant postmaster of Pleasant Hill, but resigned at the end of a year to accept a position as bookkeeper with the First National Bank in Independence, Mo.

     He remained there about three years and a half, at the end of which time he was appointed a deputy in the office of County Collector E. W. Hayes, and so fine a record did he make that he was retained under the administration of Collector McCurdy.

     Retiring from the County Collector's office, Mr. Eubank went with the land department of the Kansas City Southern Railroad as tax commissioner, the position he now holds. 

     An enthusiastic Democrat, Mr. Eubank has served as secretary of the County Committee and was treasurer in the last campaign.  He is a Mason and a Woodman.

     Mr. Eubank married Miss Brent Forbis May 26, 1896, and they have one boy.
