- When the Barrack in Churchtown 1822 was burned by the White Boys one policeman named Dunlap happened to be out on patrol and he ran into the White Boys in the Cow Field just outside the village.
They captured him and as he knew most of them they saw it was not safe to let him off so they tried him and shot him.
