James Rowland Eubank (December 8, 1914 – November 9, 1952) was a lawyer from Alexandria, Louisiana, who served for six months during 1952 in the Louisiana House of Representatives for Rapides Parish.[1] He died in office at the age of thirty-seven from a heart attack.[2]

Eubank was a floor leader for Governor Robert F. Kennon.[2] He was succeeded in the House by Lloyd George Teekell, another Alexandria lawyer who won a special election in 1953 to fill the remaining three years of Eubank's term.[1]

Eubank was the only child of Maude Lee Eubank (1885-1958)[3] and Benjamin Franklin Eubank (1882-1962), a former official of the Louisiana State Police and the state hospital system.[4] Eubank and his wife, the former Katherine Bringhurst, had two children, Robert Benjamin Eubank (born 1942) and Elizabeth Tracy Eubank (born August 1943).[2] Eubank was a maternal grandson of Swords Lee, a timber businessman in Pollock and Alexandria, who represented Grant Parish in the Louisiana House from 1904 to 1908. He was a descendant of the Lee family of Virginia. His middle name is derived from his great-grandmother, Martha Roland Lee, spelled without the "w".[5]

Eubank served in the United States Army during World War II. He is interred alongside his parents at Greenwood Memorial Park in Pineville, Louisiana.[2]
