Ralph and Stella Mae Eubank were married in Kinsley on February 21, 1935. They lived in Chase five years then moved to their farm south of Protection where Ralph became established as a hardworking successful farmer. He was a member of the Protection Baptist Church.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Myrtle and Allen, brother, Paul, infant daughter, Joan Myrtle, and grandson Cletis Glen.
