P>John Eubank is o?­ne of the legendary figures in Dickson County of the past 200 years. He was a farmer and part-time tailor and served as a member of the Dickson County Quarterly Court for more than 30 years. He served as chairman for at least 13 years, a period longer than any other individual during the County’¡Çs first 100 years and prior to the creation of the office of County Judge in 1902.
John Eubank served as State Representative from 1839 until 1849 and again during the War Between the States, from 1861-63 and was present to cast a vote for secession from the Union, authorizing Tennessee to join the Confederate States of America.
On May 30, 1830, a fierce tornado destroyed much of the Town of Charlotte. Several people were killed by the tornado, including Eubank’¡Çs first wife. In 1838 Eubank was appointed by the General Assembly as a commissioner to oversee the building of a road from Charlotte to Reynoldsburg in Humphreys County. In 1839 he married his second wife Eliza Crumpler.
In 1843, it was Rep. John Eubank who proposed Charlotte to become Tennessee’¡Çs state capitol. The measure lost by o?­nly two votes to Nashville.
