Grof is an abandoned farm in County Eidathingha.  In 1729, a man murdered his neighbour there by almost cutting off his head in a jelous rage.  He was beheaded and his hand was cut off.  Both parts were displayed on poles as a warning to the public.  According to annals from 1692, five people were found dead, their bodies swollen and the abdomens had exploded.  A reverse finned trout was discovered on a plate, and the conclusion was death by poisoning from that fish.
