To give a little history:
Nancy Hatfield was the daughter of “Preacher” Anse and Polly Hatfield who lived in the cabin at the foot of Blackberry mountain. Fred’s grandfather Phillip was born in the cabin where the replica stands today. “Preacher” Anse Hatfield presided over the famous Pig Trial of 1878, he was also the first cousin to “Devil” Anse Hatfield. Asa McCoy and Nancy Hatfield my G Grandparents were married in 1875 just three years prior to the Pig Trial.
Asa McCoy was the son of Uriah and “Aunt” Betty McCoy, Uriah was the first cousin to Randall McCoy and the brother to Randall’s wife Sarah or (Sally) McCoy. So not only were Randall and Uriah first cousins they were also brother n laws. Randall and Uriah both served in the Confederate Army the VSL and the 45th, both served with “Devil” Anse Hatfield before he deserted and they were taken POW’s.
“Aunt” Betty (Rutherford) Uriah’s wife, was my GG Grandmother on the McCoy side, she is famous for being the one who took Roseanna McCoy in after she became pregnant. In fact, Roseanna named her baby after her mother Sarah and my gg Grandmother Elizabeth, (Sarah Elizabeth)
As for my gg Uncles, Sheriff Basil Hatfield, “Bad” Elias Hatfield & Constable Floyd Hatfield they were all very much involved with the Famous Feud. Probably best known would be “Bad” Elias Hatfield as he was the one involved in the first fight at the Blackberry election ground. He’s the one who owed money to Tolbert McCoy for a fiddle.
My Pedigree/DNA just goes and goes but this is the just of it. Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by the feud and those involved in it. Over the last one-half Century, I have collected anything I could for my collection. After marring Shelia over 33 years ago researching the Hatfield and McCoy Feud and collecting artifacts also became her hobby. Over the last few years’ people have encouraged us to share our collection, we hope you enjoy viewing it as much as we have collecting it.
Just a few of the items available at the Hatfield and McCoy Gift Shop below:
Shelia's Hatfield and McCoy Candles
Hatfield and McCoy Pickled Corn
made by Shelia McCoy using the famous Hatfield and McCoy secret recipe.
You can get candles and corn at cheaper prices, but they won't be Hatfield and McCoy
The first and "ONLY Hatfield and McCoy Feud book" to ever be written (Jointly) by direct Hatfield and McCoy descendants, sure to be a collector’s item after we're dead and gone of course.
Sometimes the TRUTH hurts!!!!!
The photos are the actual front and back covers of our book. Even though the book has many interesting stories and pictures we feel the most interesting Chapter is titled, "Dissecting other Stories and Books".
For those authors who have printed so many untruths and disseminated incorrect information about the feud, we have dissected their books and the stories they have told as well as challenged the false and fabricated information they have “Written into History” with the stroke of a pen.
With over half a century of combined Law Enforcement experience in our backgrounds we have critiqued many of the Hatfield and McCoy books of the past, especially those who have labeled their books as “The Truth”, “The Real Story” and even “Rescuing History”.
Our book is $26.99 plus $5.00 for taxes/S&H. You can mail checks or money orders to the address below:
Paul Hatfield or
7370 Danville Street-Pike
Hustonville, Ky. 40437
Just as a teaser, you will never look at some of the other Hatfield and McCoy Books the same after reading our book.
no doubt a collector’s item of any Hatfield and McCoy memorabilia collector.
