From "The Family History of Carl Leroy EUBANK": "On 1 Apr 1790 Hubbard TAYLOR led a party which included James EUBANK and Family to KY. arriving 13 May 1790. Their route was from Caroline Co. VA. to the Shenandoah Valley thence up the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road (the best road in America at the time, paved with crushed limestone) today's I-81 to Chambersburg, PA. where they took the road to Bedford, PA. Here, they took FORBES Road later called the "Pennsylvania Road", close to today's PA. Tunrpike). It was built in 1758 to enable the British and American forces to capture Fort Duquesne. It ran west from Bedford to Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, it was fit for pack animals only and when they came to Brownsville on the Monongahela River, they took rafts. They floated down the Monongahela to where it joined the Allegheny to form the Ohio. They continued on down the Ohio to Maysville, KY. where they went ashore and took to horse, proceeding to Springhill in Fayette Co. which later became Clark Co. In his words : "We set out on the first day of April 1790, came by way of Brownsville on the Monongahela, down that river and the Ohio to Limestone, now Maysville, in company with Mr. James EUBANK and family, who married my eldest sister, Lucy. At this time, I had three children living, Mildred, Lucy ad Hubbard. We arrived at our new home the 13th of May 1790, found about 6 acres of land opened, some cabins and the whole of a house without a chimney, floor or door." So far, no record has been found to indicate that James or Lucy owned any land in KY. or property of any sort. It is quite possible that James acted as Hubbard's plantation manager at Springhill, near present day Winchester, as Hubbard was often away on family business. There is no record of any pension applied for by either James or Lucy for his service in the Revlutionary War. There is, however, ample evidence that he served in the Virginia Militia through DAR records which mention his rank as Lt. It is possible that his time in the militia was not sufficient to earn a pension, or they did not feel the need for one. Some indication of James' wealth is that he is listed as a bondsman in a will in Fayette Co. KY. In the Will of Capt. William ELLIS dated 28 Apr 1804 in Fayette Co. KY. James T. EUBANK, is entered into as bond with James PARRISH as their securities in the penal sum of 3,000 pounds. With this in mind, it can be reasonably assumed that James and Lucy were well off, if not rich. The date of death of James and Lucy is unknown. However, James T. EUBANK, the son of James and Lucy, was frequently traveling to Clark Co. throughout 1812 and 1813 from Newport, KY. presumably to visit his parents, as his wife's family were from the Newport area and he resided in Newport up to his death in 1814. James Taylor EUBANK was born in VA. in 1787/88 and he died in Newport, KY. 7 Dec 1814. He was a prefessional soldier, receiving his first commission in the KY. Militia as a Lieutenant in 1809. He also received another commission in 1811 from the state of KY.
Sometime between 22 Aug 1812 and 27 Nov 1812, when James T. EUBANK was appointed Deputy Quartermaster, he joined President William Henry HARRISON's Army."
In 1816, The infant J.M.T.EUBANK was assigned as his guardian, his grandmother, Nancy MOSS_BROWN_MONTAGUE who was the recipient of money from her agent, Gen. James TAYLOR for services performed in the War of 1812 by James T. EUBANK
