Death: Apr. 13, 1884

Humphrey Bunch was the son of George and Elizabeth "Phoebe" (Wild) Bunch. He married Julia Ann Frances Wooden on March 25, 1872, in Carroll County, Missouri, and to this union were born four boys:

Wyona L. Bunch 1870 1939
Jackson Bunch 1872 1920
Henry Watson Bunch 1877 1935
Humphrey Nelson Bunch, Jr. 1878 1942

Cause of Death
April 14, 1885, Post-Dispatch, Carrollton, MO: "Sunday morning Humphrey Bunch and Jesse Glover, farmers residing in the northwestern part of the county, quarreled because Bunch, who was an uncle of Glover, refused to allow the latter's cattle to feed on his pasture. Glover went away, but returned shortly and shot the top of his uncle's head off. The murderer fled, but is hotly pursued." According to a later Carrollton newspaper article, Glover was arrested for his crime. According to a descendant of Jesse C. Glover, Jesse turned himself in after two years in the West. He stood trial and was acquitted on the grounds of self-defense.

Bunch Hollow Conservation Area Named After the Bunch Brothers
The Bunch Hollow Conservation Area in Carroll County, Missouri, was named after Humphrey Bunch and his brother, Hamilton, who purchased that land in the 1800s. They created a drainage ditch to drain off the swampy land, and it is thought that this ditch became Bunch Hollow Creek which runs through the middle of the area. Today the conservation area is enjoyed as a recreation area for camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting. It contains 1300 acres of forest, plus more acreage of old fields, grassland, savannah, and cropland. It is home to many deer, turkey, and quail, and native flora.
