The KUBART family was among the early settlers of this community. Theodore was born in Chicago on March 30,1878 and came
here with his parents, the late Joseph and Anna KUBART, in about 1885, when he was 7 years of age. He grew up on the farm
in this vicinity and after his marriage to Miss Effie PACHA he and his family continued to live on the farm.
They moved to town 29 years ago, but Mr. KUBART never severed connections with farming interests. For many years he dealt
extensively in the hay business and was one of the principal shippers from this hay center.
Mr. KUBART took an active interest in many of the town's activities and organizations, among them the Atkinson Volunteer
Fire Department. He joined the department shortly after he moved to town and served continuously for 24 years. While on
the department he served in various offices, including that of fire chief.
A man of good nature, he enjoyed being with his friends and he had many of them in this community.
