The Eubank-Stewart handmade hatchet: where is it now?
The following article appeared on the front page of the November 24, 1920 edition of the Adair County News under the headline "An Old Relic" -
Miss Sallie Stewart, of this place, a few days ago, presented to Mr. Albia Eubank a handmade hatchet which was made my Mr. Eubank's great-grandfather, Mr. Jo Eubank, in 1835. It had been in the Stewart family since Mr. William Stewart was five years old, it having been given him by his father, Mr. John Stewart, who doubtless had it made. Miss Stewart takes a pride in keeping relics, but she concluded that it would be proper to turn this one over to the maker's great-grandson, who prizes it very highly.(In 1920, Miss Stewart, then 77, resided in the suburbs of Columbia, out Greensburg Road. Mr. Albia Eubank was 26 and resided on Bomar Heights with his parents and his wife, the former Miss Charlotte Bardenhoff. He passed in 1971. Mr. William Stewart, Miss Eubank's brother to whom the hatchet had belonged, was born in the fall of 1830 and died in the summer of 1904.) - JIM
