"Life Visits the Hatfields and McCoys," May 22, 1944 - Photos of Hatfields and McCoys at the time of WWII. There are a number of debatable statements in the text associated with these photos but the overall article still has merit. The photos are well worth a "look-see."
  • Per the Reverend Shirley Donnelly, William Anderson Hatfield was a first lieutenant in the 45th Virginia Infantry Regiment of the Confederate Army. The title of "Captain" which frequently accompanies his name is as a result of being the leader of a company of guerrilla warriors, something like "Partisan Rangers", which he formed in West Virginia in 1863. This was after he resigned his commission in the Confederate Army. Some say this guerrilla band was the "Logan's Wildcats." Others say "Logan's Wildcats" was the nickname for his group while he was still in the Confederate Army.
  • Per Paul Curry Steele, the Carrara marble statue which marks "Devil Anse's" grave was ordered by his sons, Joe and Tennis Hatfield, carved in Italy, and commissioned through a monument company in Huntington, WV for $3500.
  • It is said that "Devil Anse" killed Harmon McCoy. This has never been proved. There is a story that "Devil Anse" was confined to his bed at the time that this killing occurred. It is possible that Jim Vance or "Wheeler" Wilson did the actual killing although I do not have proof of that either.
  • Evidence supports a birthdate of 9 Sep 1839 for "Devil Anse" and supports Paul Curry Steele's contention that he was 81 at the time of his death not 83 as is frequently reported.

- Norma Lugar's page [A story of the events of the feud. Two items of relevance to this story: 1) Norma Lugar says that it was Johnse McCoy who was pardoned from prison. This should be Johnse Hatfield. There was no Johnse McCoy that I am aware of. 2) The Reverend Shirley Donnelly said that it was the prison warden who's life Johnse saved while in prison, whereas Norma Lugar says that it was the Lt. Governor. I do not know which is correct. - gh_at_]

- Lyrics to "The Love of Rosanna McCoy" - This is an anonymous ballad that I found in the 1960's concerning the romance between Rosanna McCoy and Johnse Hatfield.



I am frequently haunted by the closing lines from the "Anse on Island Creek" poem by Paul Curry Steele where he talks about the Hatfield cemetery by saying:
"...Vandals or souvenir hunters have hacked a chunk From the statue's backside, have unscrewed and stolen The draped classical urns that formerly topped The pillarlike twin monuments of Troy and Elias, The sons killed in a gunfight at Boomer in 1911. Once in a great while the statue is sandblasted To remove dark stains brought about by weather And secretions from the indigenous trees around. A State historical marker by the highway below Prompts tourists to climb the steep, rock road Up to the cemetery. They photograph Anse's monument And leave behind on the path in front of the graves Paper and plastic waste from their camera film. Dog mess quickly decays and disappears, But their plastic droppings remain indefinitely. It is probably better to rest in unvisited tombs. "

Even though the feud is of historical significance, it is only a ripple in the bigger picture of the lives of the local Hatfield and McCoy families.

By all means, enjoy the flavor and beauty of the country but please be very respectful of these people, their privacy, and their property. - Jerry Hatfield

Heredity: A Genealogy Poem by Grandpa Tucker
I saw a duck the other day.
It had the feet of my Aunt Faye.
Then it walked, was heading South.
It waddled like my Uncle Ralph.
And when it turned, I must propose,
Its bill was formed like Aunt Jane's nose.
I thought, "Oh, no! It's just my luck,
Someday I'll look just like a duck!"
I sobbed to Mom about my fears,
And she said, "Honey, dry your tears.
You look like me, so walk with pride.
Those folks are all from Daddy's side."
Thanks to Carma M. Brown
