                        Staffordshire Bowl Presented to Duncan Tavern

                        A Staffordshire bowl which may have been a piece of Duncan Tavem's early 19th century
                        chinaware has been presented to the Tavern after many years in Midwestern and
                        Southwestern states.

                        The white bowl, decorated in blue with floral themes on its outside and inside surfaces
                        and also with a garden scene suggesting a Southeast Asian influence, is described by
                        Barry Greenlaw as being a Gothic Revival design made in England, circa 1835. Greenlaw
                        is the former director of Bayou Bend, a 28-room home containing the Houston (Texas)
                        Museum of Fine Arts' collection of American decorative arts.

                        The bowl was donated in memory of Edith Louise Myall (Daniel) Keller and her
                        daughter, Elizabeth ("Ibby") Myall Daniel Bryant, both former residents of Paris, and also
                        her son-in-law, Vaughn M. Bryant.

                        Edith Keller was a descendant of Asa Bell Eades and Cynthia West Eades.

                        Cynthia Eades was a niece of Thomas West, who in 1788 established Paris' first tavern; a
                        plaque marks the site at 330 Main Street. Asa Eades' father was Thomas Eades, whose log
                        building on High Street was the site of Paris' second tavern; here also was the town's first
                        post office, opened in 1794.

                        Construction of Major Joseph Duncan's three-story stone tavern began in 1788. How a
                        piece of his tavern's china passed into the hands of his competitors is unclear. A member
                        of the West or Eades families may have purchased the bowl when Duncan Tavern
                        furnishings were sold in the late 19'h century.

                        Placed in a box marked "Grandpa West's bowl," it was handed down with family folklore
                        about its original home being Duncan Tavern. At one time, the base of the bowl cracked;
                        someone repaired it with glue reinforced by stout twine, which is still in place.

                        Mrs. Keller's mother was Mary Elizabeth Knapp Myall of Paris, Asa Bell Eades'
                        granddaughter and a first cousin of Elizabeth ("Lizzie") Jasper, a longtime employee of
                        the Peoples Deposit Bank. Her father was William Myall of Bourbon County, whose
                        travel book, The Scenic West, was published in 1929.

                        Mrs. Keller inherited the bowl while living in Chicago, and years later expressed her
                        desire to send it to the Tavern. She took the bowl along when she moved to the Bryants'
                        home in Houston, Texas.

                                                    Page 6
                     Register Report

Through Miss Jasper, the Bryants met Alfred Shire, a native of Paris, and his wife Nora in
Houston in 1969. The two families remained in close contact after the Bryants and Mrs.
Keller moved to Hot Springs, Ark., where Mrs. Keller died in 1984. Her daughter planned
to fulfill her mother's desire "to return the bowl to Paris," but had not done so when she
died in 1995.

Mr. Bryant gave the bowl to the Shires in 1996, nine months before his death. Aware of
Mrs. Keller's wishes, they sent photos to Mrs. Clay Roseberry, regent of the Jemima
Johnson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and offered to donate it to
the Tavern. The Tavern board accepted, and the bowl was presented to the chairman,
Mrs. Dorothea Douglas of Cynthiana, on May 11.

On October 6, 1956 when Elizabeth Myall was 41, she married Vaughn M. BRYANT.
Born on February 28, 1916 in Austin, Texas. Vaughn M. died in Pearcy, Arkansas on
October 20, 1996; he was 80.
