Veterans’ memories and memorabilia of the Civil War and World War II from members of the same family will be the highlights of the Jack Eubanks Auction scheduled for September 25 in Brevard, NC. The sale will feature items belonging to Civil War soldier George Sharp (1844-1930) and his grandson, China-Burma Theater World War II field artillery veteran Col. Paul Sharp Brown (1912-1984) as well as other items from the estate of Liesel Brown, Col. Brown’s wife.

Several pieces of antique furniture passed down through the estate of Dr. John Peters will also cross the block. Dr. Peters was a Professor of Medicine at Yale University and chief of the Metabolism Section of the Internal Medicine Department from 1922 to his death in 1955. He was considered to be the originator of the specialty of nephrology. The John P. Peters Award is awarded annually by the American Society of Nephrology, to an individual for outstanding work in the field of nephrology. Items from his family include a walnut Pennsylvania Chippendale tall chest circa 1750-1780, a Federal butler desk circa 1800, a mahogany Empire drop leaf table and a mahogany Empire chair. These were used by Dr. John Peters as his workstation where he wrote "Body Water" and "Quantitative Clinical Chemistry". He also wrote the first half of Volume II of the revised edition of “Quantitative Clinical Chemistry” at this station and was writing the last half when he died.

George Sharp enlisted in the 155th Volunteer Pennsylvania Infantry in 1862 serving at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg (Little Round Top), Wilderness, Cold Harbor and Spottsylvania where he was wounded. Upon recovery he was assigned to the 9th Regiment Veteran Reserve Corp in Washington D.C. where he served as one of Lincoln’s last bodyguards. Included in the sale will be his photo, his U.S. belt buckle, a Pennsylvania 155th medal, his discharge papers and his service history as certified by the Soldiers and Sailors Historical and Benevolent Society.

Items from his grandson Col. Paul Sharp Brown will include his campaign hat, photos, documents, medals, patches, Japanese soldier armbands and a Japanese flag called a hinomaru yosegaki. This is an autographed Japanese good luck flag given to a soldier by his family and friends to be carried into battle. A coin collection belonging to Brown’s wife Liesel Brown, which includes two 1909s VDB Lincoln cents, gold coins and foreign silver will be included in the sale as will a Ransom & Randolph Co. Model #40 quartersawn oak dental cabinet, circa 1900, from her estate. The net proceeds of the sale of items from the Brown estate will be divided equally and donated to the National Parkinson Foundation, the City of Hope Medical Center in Los Angeles and the Shriner’s Hospital for Children Burn Unit.

Other items in the sale include a custom made cherry sofa with buffalo hide upholstery made circa 1860-1870 by Severin & Andreas Jensen of Denmark and shipped to this country in the 1970s, an unusual mahogany and yellow pine desk with a slanted top, foot rail and cockbeaded drawers, late 19th/20th century, found in New Orleans and a 300+ piece collection of carnival glass from a Tennessee collector who worked on it for over 40 years.

Preview for the 650+ lot sale is scheduled for Friday September 24 from 11:00AM – 6:00PM and Saturday September 25 beginning at 8:00AM, earlier by appointment. The sale is Saturday September 25 beginning at 9:00AM in the Eubanks Auction facility at 210 S. Broad St, Brevard, NC, 28712. Reserved seating for 160 is available by phone or email.
