Hilary Tunstall-Behrens whose great uncle was John Tunstall has lunch with member of the Garrett family at La Plazuela in La Fonda on Thursday, July 29, 2010. These are the first members of the English family to visit the United States since John Tunstall was shot down in the 1870s, setting off the Lincoln County War. Billy the Kid worked for Tunstall. His "handshake from hell," agreeing to buy property in Lincoln County, took place at the Exchange Hotel which stood at the corner of the Plaza where La Fonda now stands.
