  • Notes 
    • James Bunch and his family, including son Emanuel, lived across the river in the area that is now Normac Estates. The Bunch's were strong Union supporters. Bad blood boiled between Richard Laughlin and Emanuel Bunch as a result of the two families divergent war sentiments, and on November 21, 1873, while on his way to the Forest Grove School, Richard was attacked by Emanuel Bunch and hit in the head with a rock that resulted in his death. The attack would have taken place somewhere in the area around #15 tee. Emanuel Bunch was ultimately convicted of 2nd degree manslaughter and served 2 years in the penitentiary. His father, James, was also charged but was found not guilty. About a year before the murder, Richard's sister Narcissa Laughlin had married Emanuel Bunch's brother, Isaac, which surely made for a case of strange bedfellows following the murder.
