Effacas "Eff" Bunch and Sara L. Porter Family

Effacas "Eff" Bunch born about 1862 in Arkansas. When Eff was a young boy, he was traveling with his parents who were moving from Arkansas into Missouri, probably around or just before 1870. The story has it that they heard some noises in the woods they were passing through and they thought it might be some bushwhackers, so they hid young Eff in the bushes. His parents were killed by these people and left Eff in the bushes. Later, along came some more travelers that heard Eff and picked him up to take him with them. Their names were Blufford and Mary Booker. To this date, nothing is known about Eff's parents. The 1880 census of Clay, Greene County Missouri shows a Blufford and Mary Booker living alone. Living on either side of them, though, were John R. Porter and his wife Lucy Spivey Porter. Living with them was John's sister Sarah Porter...who Eff married that year...1880. On the other side of the Bookers was Stanton Patterson and his family. Living with them was Effacas Bunch, who the census shows that he was 18 and born in Arkansas and his parents were also born in Arkansas. Eff died 1935 in Christian County, Missouri. He married Sarah L. Porter 1880 in Galloway, Missouri Eoff Bunch
