Hi Stuart....I found a James Dunlap in an old book I have about Ruch, Oregon...I think he is the same as the one you are seeking...this is what it says:
~~"On Aug. 31, 1861, the 'Oregon Sentinel' carried a story headlined "murder Will Out'' to the effect that a party of miners assisted a man with a band of loose horses, which turned out to be stolen. By threatening to hang him they extracted a confession from him that, with the help of two men, Springer and Bullock, they had not only stolen the horses in Rogue River Valley, but also had set fire to Mrs. Hinkle's house, after murdering her and her daughters. This story is the sole evidence available that Mary Hinkle and her daughters were murdered.
There is no record of where Mary Hinkle and her daughters were buried. In Logtown Cemetery there are a number of very old graves with no markers that are listed on the cemetery maps as unknown. It is on record that Burpee and Linn provided the caskets and dug the graves, but the record does not give the location where the remains were buried.
On an erly map made by Elva Smith, who kept a record of burials, there is the grave of a Hinkle baby who died in the 1850's. A bill for $8.00 to Edwin Hinkle from J.S. Burpee for making a coffen and digging a grave was found in his probate records.
It is known that the Reverend James Dunlap, a minister who lived in the camp, conducted the funeral for the Hinkles in June of 1861. The next year Rev. Dunlap died and is one of the first recorded graves in Logtown cemetery."......
also....I'm not sure if this is the same Rhoda Dunlap, but a coincidence????....states:
~~"William T. Bostwick was married to Rhoda Dunlap in 1888. She died in childbirth the next year...she and the infant are buried together in Logtown cemetery....in 1890, William Bostwick married Augusta Schnieder''......
*this book has a lot of info on the McKee's as well, but odd, not the name you mentioned....
~~"Ruch and the Upper Applegate Valley," by John Black
__hope something of this helps ....
