  • Notes 
    • From Sue Sullivan: I believe there is some confusion regarding the LAUGHLIN family of Camden County, MO. Charles and John LAUGHLIN are brothers and each named a son named Henry. John LAUGHLIN married Rebecca WALKUP in 1813 in Mercer County, KY. Their son Henry (c. 1817-1861+) married Americas Jane R. CHITWOOD.

      Take yourself back to the late 1860's or early 1870's. Civil War sentiments are still running strong. Henry Laughlin and his wife, Americus, are living in eastern Camden County. Henry, a 2nd Lieutenant in the Confederate Army during the War, is a strong Confederate sympathizer surrounded by Union supporters. Recognizing the danger of their situation they move to Arkansas to surround themselves with other Confederates. Henry is killed by bushwhackers anyway.
      Following Henry's death, Americus returns to Camden County with her 12 children, including James, the oldest, plus Henry Jr., Josh, George, and Richard. Their family farm was on the property that is now Lake Valley, with the farmhouse thought to be somewhere near the catalpa tree on what is now, tee #14 on the Lake Valley Golf course, and a barn at the top of the hill behind #17 tee. The Forest Grove School was located in the vicinity of what is now John Bearden's house, across Highway 54 behind #15 tee.
      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.

      Death after 1865.
