Some local Hatfield & McCoy History


Last year I talked a bit about the Matewan Massacre and some local history, and a lot of you seemed to like it. Over the weekend I went by one of the old McCoy family’s little plots. I’m sure most of you are familiar with famous Hatfield and McCoy feud that took place all along the Tug valley here in Ky and over in Wv. The below pictures are about 3 miles from where I live.

The History Channel made a great mini series about the feud several years ago. Starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton RIP.

Brady is good friends with Devil Anse’s Great Grandson who I’ve met a couple of times. He has some good stories, I will try to get some more details on in a few weeks


  1. Looks like a lovely place. I’m a mountain man…some might call me a hillbilly… and I need wooded hills and valleys around me to be happy. I’ve spent a lot of time in the Texas Panhandle, and the Great Plains always make me feel weird.
