Notes for ANNE MCKINNEY:
The David Musick Tragedy By Emory L. Hamilton
From the unpublished manuscript, Indian Atrocities Along the Clinch, Powell and Holston Rivers, pages 219-225.
The following narrative was prepared by the late Judge Elihu J. Sutherland of Clintwood, VA, for delivery at the dedication of the David Musick monument near Honaker, VA, August 19, 1956.
Judge Sutherland said: I am indebted to my long-time friend, Rev. Grover C. Musick, for this story of David Musick. Grover Musick is a great-great-grandson of the martyred David Musick. He secured this story from his great Aunt, great-granddaughter of David Musick.

The story as told by Mrs. Fletcher is as follows: My grandfather, David Musick, married Annie McKinney, of Russell County, Virginia, and at the time of his death in 1792, his family consisted of his wife, their children, Elijah, Electious, Abraham and Phoebe. They lived on a farm near the present town of Honaker. Two of the boys, Abraham and Elijah, went early one morning for firewood with which to prepare breakfast.

They were surprised by a party of Indians (not known how many), but were able to reach their home. The doors were barred, and the defense of the house began. David Musick had a flint-lock rifle. He found it would not fire, due to the fact his house had been burned previous to this, injuring the gun. Mrs. Musick touched fire to the gun, hoping to ignite the powder, but to no avail. Mr. Musick was shot through the thigh by an arrow from the bow of the Indians, and fainted from the loss of blood. The Indians broke into the home, killing and scalping him and making prisoners of his wife and children. They then plundered the house and ate what they found of prepared food, their hands gory with blood.

While the Indians were attacking the house, a neighbor, who had come to the Musick home to borrow a plow, on seeing the Indians became so excited he ran with all speed possible. On reaching the yard of his home he fell dead. He must have had a weak heart. The evening previous to the massacre of Mr. Musick the same band of Indians scalped a girl named Brumley, who lived in the same community. They came upon her late in the evening, while churning at a springhouse some distance from her house. Strange to say they scalped her alive, leaving her to die. The girl crawled some distance to an old stable and hid in some flax, which was stored in the building. She was found alive, and recovered.

But to resume my story of the Musick family and the Indians. Telling Mrs. Musick and the children to get ready, they started on the long journey back to the Ohio Valley. Before leaving the settlement as they went through a field, they killed a steer. After skinning it they encased part of it in the hide for a supply of meat. Then they found a young mare, and after securing her, they placed the meat on her and had young Abraham, the eldest son, mount her. This boy, Abraham, had red hair, and the Indians were fond of him and treated him very well. Not so, however, with Electious, the youngest son, who refused to eat the raw meat along the way, and cried a great deal. As a punishment they rubbed his face against an oak tree, cutting the flesh deeply. He carried the scars with him to his grave.
The course the Indians and their captives followed led over Big A Mountain into the present county of Buchanan, down a ridge which bears the name of Indian Ridge in memory of this event, following Indian Creek, which also takes its name from this event. They came to Russell Fork River, down which they went through the Sand Lick section of Dickenson County to the junction of Russell Fork River with Russell Prater Creek, where the present town of Haysi is now located.

Night coming on they decided to camp there. Crossing a knoll a few yards above where Russell Prater enters Russell Fork, they forded the river to what was at that time a small island. An Indian brave, who could speak a little English, said as they were crossing: ‘White man no come here.’ Little did they know about their peril, for close upon them was a possee of white settlers, who a little later in the night sighting their camp-fire, moved into hiding behind a knoll and anxiously awaited the coming of dawn to attack and release Mrs. Musick and her children. All the Indians undoubtably would have been killed had the orders of the Captain of the possee been obeyed. One of the possee became so excited he fired before the order to fire was given.

When Mrs. Musick heard the firing, she and the children rushed towards the whites, she carrying the baby, Phoebe, in her arms. One of the Indians threw his tomahawk at her, but missed, sticking it in an oak tree. Another Indian threw pieces of burning firewood at her. An overruling of Providence surely must have saved the family.

The result of the attack: One Indian killed, another seriously wounded, but who was able to escape with his companions with much pain, as was indicted by his screams. Some years ago a human skeleton was found under a cliff, near Haysi, supposedly that of the wounded Indian. Then began the long thirty mile trip back to the settlements of the Clinch Valley in Russell County.
The possee being very much worn out by the long and arduous trip, when they reached the foot of Sandy Ridge decided to camp for the night at a large spring. But Mrs. Musick insisted they cross the mountain to Clinch River side before camping. Later discovery proved her fear correct, for the party of Indians had turned back after the fight and pursued the whites, following them to the big spring and camping on the proposed camp site of the whites. They gave up the chase here and returned to the Ohio.
Not knowing that a possee had gone out from the New Garden section in pursuit of the Indians, Captain Andrew Lewis, who was then in charge of the militia on the frontier and stationed at Rye Cove in Scott County, got word of the event and went himself in pursuit of the same party, not knowing that the prisoners had already been recaptured. He tells of his pursuit in a letter to the Governor written from Ft. Lee on the 24th of August, 1792, (1) in the following words: On Monday night last I returned from pursuit of the Indians that did the mischief in New Garden on the 12th instant. I had started with 34 men to Kentucky to rout some Indians that I was informed was camped there, and supposed to be the ones that visited this county. I had not marched more than 7 or 8 miles, when an express came to me of the mischief done in the Garden, in the following words: ‘that 4 persons were killed, 12 or 14 prisoners taken; the number of Indians not known, but not less than 40′. I immediately changed my route, and I suppose such a chain of mountains was never crossed by any set of men before and 15 days provisions on our backs. The distance I had to march before I would strike their trail was 150 miles, unless I had fell in too far behind them. My intention was, if possible, to strike Sandy River low down, so as to be before them or shortly after. On the 17th in the evening, I struck the river, about four miles below the Station evacuated by our people last spring. We found there only the sign of some coming into the settlements, which we supposed to be the same. There was no person with me that had ever been to the Station. (2) and I expected if I could find it to see more sign, but unluckily took the wrong side of the river and thick cane brakes, and was at a loss to find it. I halted and sent two of the Scouts in search of it. They had not been gone but a few minutes before they returned and said from the noise and fire and smoke that the houses were then fired, but could not cross the river to be certain. I then found myself in a disagreeable situation, as I fully expected they were there, and I knew nothing of the recovery of the prisoners. As we had made considerable sign on both sides of the river, and were then on the contrary side from them, I knew delay would not do. I expected if the Station was afire that they were about to move off, and would of course, fall on our sign on which they would immediately murder the prisoners. To prevent this, as I had chosen men and my anxiety to save the prisoners, I divided my men, determined to risk a battle with half their number, as I had then no reason to believe their number to be under 40. I sent one half down the river to cross, and marched the other party up and crossed a small distance above them, so had they left the place we would meet. As soon as I got over we found the houses were not fired, but had encamped in the yard by the direction of the smoke, for the weeds, cane, and hemp was so tall that we could not tell their number, nor even see them until we were within fifteen steps of them, and just as we got sight of them, and our guns presented, they discovered us and run. Several guns were fired at them, but as they were in a few steps out of sight, cannot be certain that any were killed, except one.
We got every kind of arms and accoutrements they had and nine horses they had stolen from the Garden, which I restored to the owners. As they are gone naked and without either arms or ammunition. I doubt their ever seeing their own country. It may be thought this murder might have been prevented; the Garden was considered safe, for since the first settling of it there has been but one person killed, and that five or six years past…
Just to show how events in retelling can balloon out of proportion the following news item appeared in the Knoxville Gazette of August 25, 1792. Knoxville, August 25. On Saturday the 11th instant, a party of Indians attacked a house at New Garden, in Russell County, (Virginia) killed sixteen persons, and took a woman and four children prisoners. They were followed by a company of horse, who soon came up with them, and re-took the prisoners. (Page 23, The Gazette, part II, August 1792, American Museum).
R. M. Addington, History of Scott County, Virginia, page 335, in his biography of Charles Cromwell Addington, relates the story of the Musick family, thusly: …When Charles Addington first came to Russell County, that section was often visited by hostile Indians. His home was located near a fort to which the family often had occasion to flee for safety. He frequently related, in substance, the following story as having occured near his home: In the year 1790 (should be 1792) the Indians made several raids in the neighborhood of Hayter’s Gap. On one of these raids the house of a neighbor, named Musick, was attacked just at the break of day. Stealthily approaching the house, the Indians shot and killed Musick through a crack in the wall. They then forced an entrance and took his wife and nine children prisoners. It was three or four hours before the depredation became known in the neighborhood. Musick’s dead body was accidentally discovered by someone who called at his house on an errand. As soon as the murder became known, the riflemen of the neighborhood gathered at the Musick homestead, and women and children were rushed to the fort for protection. The trail of the Indians was soon found, and the riflemen went in hasty pursuit. But the enemy, by this time, were about nine hours travel ahead of their pursuers. Late the third evening the scouts came in sight of the Indians as they were kindling their first campfire. A council of war was held to determine the best manner of attack to rout the enemy and save the lives of the prisoners. It was decided an attack should not be made until dawn the next morning. The plan of attack was: All were to charge the camp at full speed, one third of the company were to discharge their guns into the air over the camp to make the Indians believe they were being shot at, the remaining two-thirds were to hold their fire in reserve, and shoot to kill if necessary. It was hoped in this way to so frighten the Indians that they would break camp and run without killing any of the captives. The plan succeeded admirably; the Indians fled headlong, leaving the prisoners unharmed, and much valuable plunder behind. Thus Mrs. Musick and her children were restored to their friends. (Note: children were put into the care of Mike Oxer, see pension record of James Oxer.)

Annie McKinney Musick Bundy Hatfield
David Musick Road Side Marker at Honaker, Virginia.
Why would anyone in Pike County be interested in a roadside marker in Honaker, Virginia? The story that goes with that marker is over 200 years old. Who in Pike County should be interested and why? The answer is the wife of David Musick. Annie McKinney Musick is the ancestor of thousands of Pike County folks. Her story is unbelievable. Yet it really happened, and I believe not many are aware that this remarkable lady lived and died in what is now Pike County, Kentucky. She is buried in Pike County but there is no marker on her grave. Yet two of her husbands have large markers on their graves and are well remembered. One grave marker is in Pike County.

Let me start at what was the beginning for me and tell you how I came to be aware of this lady.

Helen Owens of Lebanon, Virginia was referred to me to help her find the grave of Annie McKinney Musick Bundy Hatfield. I thought it best that I refer her to Hatfield researchers. I was not very knowledgeable in this area but I knew folks who are. I referred her to the children of Hazel Hatfield Blackburn. These siblings, Jack Blackburn at Food City in Goody, Aggie Hager, Peggy Tussey and Ronnie Blackburn, who lives in Florida, are all great historians and do genealogy. They also will share their notes and help others with their research. They are the folks who would be of great help to Mrs. Owens. They were raised on Blackberry on the very ground where Annie lived with her last husband. They are working with Mrs. Owens to develop and record the story of Annie. Their sharing of information will produce much more data on this remarkable lady. These folks have shared much research with me to help me tell the story of this wonderful lady.

I was surprised when Mrs. Owens called again to ask about William Roman who lived on Pond Creek in Pike County, Kentucky in 1830. Surprised because William Roman is my ancestor and I know nothing about him. Mrs. Owens asked about his wife, Nancy, and memories came flooding back. Over 20 years ago when I lived in Frankfort, Juanita Blackburn Ratliff and I came to Pike County to do genealogy. We spent a day and night on Pond Creek and visited folks gathering information on our ancestors. Libby Williamson told us that that Mrs. William Roman was a Bundy and related to the Hatfields. Alice Hunt also stated this to us. I did nothing with this information. I had it in pencil on a family group sheet and did not enter it into the computer when I starting using a computer just a few years ago. Mrs. Owens had certainly thrown me a curve and I needed a little time to see if I could piece together what Mrs. Owens was telling me and see where this story was going. What exactly was Mrs. Owens telling me and how was this ancestor of mine related to Annie McKinney Musick Bundy Hatfield?

Mrs. Owens and I spent a day in the Pike County Court Clerks office. She had many notes and Court Records on folks that were in Russell County, Virginia before 1800 and we tied them to folks who came into this area and were here about the time Pike County became a county.

Let’s start and tell the story in chorological order. I might advice you to save this story until I finish the story of Annie because she might be your ancestor.

David Musick lived on a farm in Russell County, Virginia. His family consisted of his wife Annie McKinney and five children. The oldest son, Abraham was born in 1777 and was 15 years old. The other sons were Elijah, age 12; Samuel, age 9 and Elexious, age 4. The baby girl, Phoebe was only 6 weeks old. The year was 1792.

Annie Musick had sent the older two boys outside to get firewood to cook breakfast when Indians appeared on the scene. All the family was able to get inside the house but the only gun; a flintlock rifle would not fire. Thus, the home basically was defenseless. David Musick had an arrow in his thigh. He lost blood and soon was unconscious. The Indians killed him and scalped him. Their hands were wet with his blood as they found the food Mrs. Musick was preparing and ate it. They also slaughtered a steer and packed the meat on a horse to take with them. One Indian could speak broken English and made Annie Musick understand that she and her children were going with them. Her oldest son Abraham was placed on the horse that was carrying the meat they had stolen. This child had red hair and the Indians seemed to favor him. Her son Elexious refused to eat raw meat and the Indians were very angry with him. They rubbed his face against an oak tree and severely cut his face. He carried scars on his face all his life from this injury.

The journey the Indians took is marked in Virginia as it is considered historically important. They passed thru what is now Buchanan and Dickinson County. Finally they made camp at night. The Indians tried to impress Mrs. Musick by telling her, “White man no come here.” They had traveled thru several mountain ranges. Their destination was what is now Ohio.

The Indians were in for a surprise. The men of the settlement had formed a posse and even though the Indians had several hours head start the settlers had closed the gap. They saw the Indians camp fires and closed in on them. They were told not to fire because at dawn it might be possible to kill all the Indians and rescue Annie and her children alive. It would appear that this was the second day the Musick family had been captives by the Indians. Of course someone did not follow orders and a shot was fired early. Mrs. Musick and her children made a dash for the settlers and all were rescued unharmed. One Indian was killed and another wounded. The rest of the Indians scattered.

The Musick family started back towards the Virginia settlement with the posse. They were tired and wanted to camp but Mrs. Musick feared the Indians would regroup and give chase. She encouraged the settlers to push on towards home. She encouraged them not to stop at the foot of Sandy Ridge but to press forward to Clinch Mountain before they stopped.

She was correct, the Indians did give chase and their first stop was the same spot that the settlers had proposed stopping. The Indians were not able to catch them and turned back.

Mrs. Musick and her family reached the safety of the settlement.

In August of 1956 the descendants of David and Annie McKinney Musick gathered to dedicate The David Musick Monument and Road Side Marker in Honaker, Virginia. The speaker at the dedication was Judge E.J. Sutherland who is recognized as historian for the area.

The Marker Reads:
THE HOME AND GRAVE OF DAVID MUSICK
PIONEER SETTLER AND VICTIM OF INDIAN ATROCITY
“Musick was killed by Shawnee Indians August 12, 1792. His wife Annie and five children were taken captives but were returned by White Settlers one day later. His grave marker is located about 100 yards south of here, and home site about 200 yards farther south.”

In 1964 Reverend Grover Cleveland Musick published a genealogy of the Musick family. Egbert Musick expanded this book and published another Musick Genealogy in 1978.
Mr. and Mrs. Dallas Musick had this reprinted in 2001 but all these books are out of print. There is a copy of Grover Musick’ book in Pikeville College Library.

Annie is a young widow with five children. She raises these children and adds more children to her family.

We will continue the story of Annie and her children in a later issue of the Medical Leader.

****
Annie McKinney Musick is in somewhat of a predicament. She is a widow alone on the frontier with no husband. How will she feed her children? At that time the Court protected fatherless children. A mother had no rights. The first person selected to be guardian of her children by the Court was a man named Oxter. This is probably a member of the Auxier family that came into the Big Sandy Valley and settled near Block House in Floyd County.

Annie Musick appears in Court again in September of 1792. Her father in law Elexious Musick appears with her and they are settling the estate of David Musick. Someone has to go bond or be “Security” for them and the man doing this is Henry Smith. He posts bond of 1000 pounds with conditions as the law allows.

Also in another entry Samuel Robinson and Henry Smith are mentioned as settling the estate of David Musick. The first Will Book in Russell County has been missing since the Civil War so we have no idea whether or not Annie was left with money to raise her children. Was she a lady with property and some money? We will never know.

It is interesting to note that Henry Smith and Samuel Robinson are names of men who later appear in Pike County.

In Sept of 1797 Annie throws researchers a curve. She appears in Russell County Court again but she has apparently remarried, as her name is no longer Musick but Bundy.
The Court records say, “On motion of Anna Bundy it is ordered that Thomas Ferguson be appointed guardian for the heirs of David Musick Deceased.”

The usual thing is for the stepfather of the children to be appointed guardian of his stepchildren. What happened to Mr. Bundy? Was he alive or was this an unsuccessful marriage. Who is this Bundy man? We do not know. Mrs. Owens searched the Russell County Records and the only Bundy she could find was a Nathaniel on the Court Tax list in 1803 and a Nathaniel involved in a lawsuit in 1820. It is not known if this man was the second husband of Annie. However, we are confident that this marriage to a Mr. Bundy did produce a daughter named Nancy Bundy. Nancy was born about 1797.

Let’s leave Annie for a short time and discuss the man who will become her third husband. Ephriam Hatfield was also living in Russell County. He was one of the settlers who rescued Annie from the Indians.

The Hatfield family calls Ephriam “Eph of All” because he is the ancestor of all the Hatfields that came into theTug Valley in Kentucky and West Virginia. He was married to Mary Smith. She was a sister to his stepmother. He was the son of Joseph Hatfield and Elizabeth Vance. Elizabeth Vance Hatfield died and Joseph, Ephraim father, remarried to Rachel Smith. The Smith sisters were the daughters of Ericus Smith and Brigetta Anderson.

Ephriam and Mary Smith had five children. Mary died about 1797. It is thought she died in childbirth with her youngest child. This baby Lydia Bridgett was the only girl born to Ephriam and Mary. The sons of Ephriam and Mary were Joseph born in 1785, Ali/Aly/ Eli/ Ely born in 1787, Valentine, the grandfather of Devil Anse Hatfield born in 1789, Ericus, born in 1790 and finally the baby girl born when her mother died.

Ephriam Hatfield is a man with a real problem. How was he going to feed this baby girl? He did not have the option of going to the family drug store and buying formula such as Similac for this baby. Ever hear the term wet-nurse? A wet nurse is a nursing mother who will allow a baby other than her own to nurse to give nourishment to a child not her own.

Did Annie, whose child Nancy was born at about the same time as Ephriam’s daughter Lydia Bridgett, become a wet nurse for Lydia Bridgett?

Was this the need that brought Ephriam and Annie together? They did form a relationship and they had a daughter Mary Emzy, born in 1800, George, the father of Preacher Anse Hatfield, born about 1804, Margaret born about 1805 and Jeremiah born about 1807.

Ephriam and Annie certainly had a house full of children. They had her six, his five and their four. Over the next few years the children marry but they remain in a neighborhood close to their parents. Court records sometimes show a disagreement with others but not with each other. These folks lived together in harmony.

In 1820 Ephriam and Annie still in Russell County Virginia. Several of their married children are in the neighborhood. Ephriam and Annie are close to 55 years old in 1820. Someone in the family makes a decision that seems rather daring and it concerns almost all the family. They decide to leave Russell County and go to the Tug Valley. Nearly all the family members make the move. Grandsons Ephriam and Eli appear in the 1830 Logan County Census.

In Pike County in 1830 are several family members. They include George Hatfield with a wife and two small children. This is Eph and Annie’s son. Their daughter Margaret has married Andrew Canada and they have four children. Eph’s son Joseph from his first marriage has a wife and nine children. Eph son Valentine, from his first marriage, has a wife and nine children. One of Valentine’s sons is the father of Devil Anse Hatfield. Another Hatfield, Joseph is also in the same community with a wife and child.

Remember the little girl Phoebe Musick who was only six weeks old when captured by the Indians? Her mother, Annie and stepfather, Ephriam Hatfield raised her. She is married to Ferrell Evans and makes the move to Pike County with her mother and Ephriam, and in 1830 she has 6 children. The little girl Nancy Bundy, the daughter from Annie’s second marriage raised completely by Ephriam is married to William Roman and has 9 children by 1830.

Ephriam is now between 60 and 70 years old by 1830. He has a male in his home between the age of 20 and 30 and a female in his home the same age. Where is Annie? She does not appear in the 1830 Pike County census.

The reason she is not in the census may have been told by the author of the Hatfield Genealogy in the third edition of the G. Elliott Hatfield book, “The Hatfields”. Ephriam and Annie were not married. Why they did not marry we do not know but would like to take a guess. Mrs. Owens and I think that perhaps her second husband Mr. Bundy was alive and she was not free to marry. Not being married must have been on her conscience as well as Ephriam’s. They did not want to admit this relationship to the government census worker. So they did not list her in his household even though their oldest child was 30 years old. Thus they had been together over 30 years.

In 1830 in a Pike County marriage record is something I have only seen one time in all the marriage records I have read. Someone secures a marriage license for someone else and the clerk issues it. Let me quote from the official record. It is File Number 263 in the Pike County Court Clerk’s Office. “License issued November 22, 1830 by James Honaker, Clerk of the Pike County Court for the marriage of Ephriam Hatfield and Anna Bundy. Clerk certifies that the application was made by George Hatfield, their son sufficient to issue this License. The bond signed by George Hatfield and Ferrell Evans. They were married by Ferrell Evans, a Pike County Justice of the Peace on November 29, 1830.” Ferrell Evans was married to Phoebe Musick and was the son in law of Annie. Thus their children arranged this marriage. It was important to them. Why now, why not years before? Perhaps Mr. Bundy had died and Annie was now free to marry
.
By 1840 this family had many more family members that were heads of households in Logan, County, West Virginia and Pike County, Kentucky. Ephriam and Annie are living on property in Pike County that will become famous in the Hatfield and McCoy Feud. It is their property with many descendants living on the property very close to them.

Annie’s Musick sons did not come to Pike County but the little girl captured by the Indians, Phoebe, Musick, did make the trip with her husband, Ferrell Evans. Ferrell Evans was a Pike County Justice of the Peace in 1826 and he performed many marriages. These marriages were often witnessed by William Roman, his brother in law and George Hatfield another brother in law. I certainly do not believe I have found all the children of Ferrell Evans and Phoebe Musick but here are the ones I have found:

1. Nancy Evans, born in 1809 married Joseph Hatfield, a son of Valentine and Martha Weddington Hatfield. A granddaughter of Annie marries a grandson of Ephriam.
2. Anna Evans, born in 1810 marries Aly Hatfield, a brother to Joseph above. This is the second time a granddaughter of Annie marries a grandson of Ephriam.
3. Martha Evans, born in 1812 marries Gabe Riffe.
4. Sarah Evans, born in 1815 marries Thomas Hatfield. A brother to Joseph and Aly. This is the third time that a grandchild of Annie married a grandchild of Ephriam.
5. Elexious Evans, born in 1819, marries Catherine Ferrell.
6. Mary Evans, born about 1820, marries Daniel Coleman.
7. Elizabeth Evans, born about 1822, marries Fleming Stafford, a son of John and Nancy Runyon Stafford. Fleming Stafford was a Union Soldier during the Civil War. He was almost 50 years old when he joined the Kentucky Infantry. 39th Regiment Company “H”. He was at Turmans Ferry where the 39th really met with disaster. He suffered frostbite there and was discharged due to disability.
8. Hammond Evans, born about 1825, married Phoebe Kelley.
9. Phoebe Evans, born about 1831, married August Wring.

The little girl Nancy Bundy, the daughter of Annie and Mr. Bundy, came into Pike County with her husband William Roman. Nancy and her husband came with her stepfather that raised her, Ephriam Hatfield, and her mother Annie. Mrs. Owens had found court records on the Roman family in Russell County also. William Roman was a son of William Roman and Margaret Thompson. The father William Roman died young and the mother Margaret Thompson remarried and this apparently was a real problem for her young Roman children. The brother of Margaret Thompson, Richard Thompson, took his nieces and nephews into his home and helped these children legally in Court. On one occasion young William Roman became a threat to his stepfather who put him under a peace bond for two years. His brother and sister’s husband sign the bond for him. The mother, Margaret Thompson, died before her second husband and her Roman children stay in Court against the stepfather for a few more years before they can settle the estate of their father. It is a shame that that the book that shows estate settlements is missing in Russell County.

Nancy Bundy and William Roman had several children and I have found thirteen of them. There may be more. Birthdays are not exact. The ones I have found are:

1. James Roman, born 1813, married Mary Smith 1835 in Pike County.
2. His brother William Roman, born 1815, married Nancy Smith, a sister to Mary above. The Smith sisters were the children of Henry Smith, JR. and grandchildren of Henry Smith and his wife Mary Honaker. Henry Smith came to Pike County about 1823. Wonder if he was the Henry that helped to settle David Musick’s estate?
3. Levi Roman, born 1820, married Nancy Adkins.
4. Annie Roman born about 1816 married John Varney, a son of Alexander Varney and Susannah Runyon. These folks had 16 children and most descendants are in the Pond Creek area. They filled the area with grandchildren of Annie McKinney Musick Bundy Hatfield.
5. Isham Roman, born 1816, married first Charlotte Coleman in Pike County in 1834. By 1850 he is in Logan County with a wife named Sally and seven children.
6. Mary Catherine Roman, born 1819, called Cathie, married Hudson Blackburn in 1834 in Pike County. They had 11 children. I have 67 grandchildren for them and do not have them all.
7. Margaret Roman, born 1823, married James Blackburn in 1839 in Pike County. He is a brother to Hudson Blackburn above. Margaret and James have only five children but I have listed 53 grandchildren for them.
8. Nancy Roman, born 1827, married John McCoy, a son of Daniel and Margaret Taylor McCoy and a brother to Randolph McCoy in 1845 in Pike County. She and John had six children. I believe she may have died because John remarried in Logan County in1853.
9. Jeremiah Roman, born 1829. No data
10. Elizabeth or Eliza Roman, born 1832, married Moses Runyon. A son of Henry and Hannah Collins Runyon.
11. Alexander Roman, born 1836, married three times to Phoebe Crum, Charlotte Kazee and Dorcas Farley.
12. Asa H. Roman. Born 1839. No data
13. John Roman. Born 1846 married Matilda Steele.

Ephriam, “Eph Of All.” Hatfield dies before the 1850 census. He lived a long life. He is buried in the Anderson Hatfield Cemetery on property where he lived. His descendants placed a large marker on his grave. This marker shows his death date as 1855 but researchers believe it was before then. Eph, the ancestor of all the Hatfields in the Tug Valley is buried in Pike County, Kentucky. Many, many heads of household in 1850 Pike and Logan County are descendants of Eph and his two wives and Annie Hatfield and her three husbands.

Annie was still alive in 1850. She was listed as 95 years old. This may be stretching it a bit but she was somewhere between 85 and 90 years old. She has a Musick grandson living very close to her. She was living in the home of her son Jeremiah on property that will become famous in a few years as Hatfield and McCoy feud sites. Hatfield researchers say she is buried next to Ephriam. There is no marker on her grave. I feel remorse about that.

Many thanks to Ron Blackburn for sharing data with me for over 20 years. Thanks to his sisters and brother. Thanks to Tom Adkins for all his research in Logan County. Jonah & Elene May also share their records. Without Helen Owens and her research in Russell County I could never have told this story. Thank you, Helen.

It should be noted that a book has just been published based on the life of Annie McKinney Musick Bundy Hatfield. The book, “The Starched Apron” is by Doris Musick and is just now reaching bookstores.

West Virginia Wins
The Writ of Habeas Corpus Granted in the Hatfield Case
Our Own Gibson Lays the Blue Grass Attorneys out Cold
Proceedings in the Case before Judge Barr
The Hatfields Unlawfully Confined
Louisville, KY, February 10 – Argument was heard today in the United States District Court, on the motion for a writ of habeas corpus in the case of Valentine Hatfield and eight others, citizens of West Virginia, now confined in the jail of Pike County. Hon. Estace Gibson appeared for West Virginia. He said that he believed that the Commonwealth of Kentucky had been the first in the history of this country to seize and enjoy an opportunity for the invasion of a sister State and the seizure of her citizens by a band of outlaws. The petition sets forth that the State of affairs had been brought to the notice of the Governor of Kentucky, who, while admitting that the citizens of West Virginia had been violently and wrongfully captured, yet refused to right the wrong. The right to settle the Inter-State questions was distinctly conferred upon the Federal Government. Gov. Knott said: “If this was a controversy between States, as the argument of his learned brother had indicated then this proceeding should be before the Supreme Court of the United States which alone had jurisdiction in controversies between States. From the fact that the attorney for West Virginia had seen fit to connect the chief magistrate of Kentucky with this ridiculous proceeding and to assail his character in connection with it, he would read a little from Gov. Buckner, defending himself. Mr. Knott then read the letter, which refutes the position taken by the Governor of West Virginia. He said he had complied with every condition which Governor Wilson thought necessary and therefore supposed that steps had been taken to give up the fugitives from justice. He knew nothing to the contrary until early in January. After ex-Gov. Knott, Attorney General Hardin addressed the court, among other things he stated that the United States statute on the issuing of a writ of habeas corpus explicitly requires that the person confined must make and sign the petition for his own release. In this case, the petition was not so made and signed. Further, the petitions are not good because the conditions and facts of confinement are not set forth as the law requires. Judge Barr, in rendering his decision, stated that he felt great hesitancy in the matter. The case was without precedent and he was doubtful, the petitions being obscure. Such being the case, however, and the attorneys for the State of Kentucky having failed to show that the prisoners confined in the Pike County jail had been placed there through due process of law, he inclined to the side claiming relief for the persons unjustly confined and would grant the writ of habeas corpus, returnable next Monday a week.

The Hatfields Safe
The Nine Hatfields Lodged in Louisville Jail
Whence to Appear Before Judge Barr on Monday
Old Man Hatfield Tells the Story of the Feud a Long List of Outrages
Louisville, KY, February 17 – The nine West Virginians known as the “Hatfields” arrived here last night. The Deputy United States Marshal and jailer of Pike County were their only guards during the journey. They will appear before Judge Barr, of the United States District Court, Monday, when the habeas corpus application of the Governor of West Virginia will be further heard. Valentine Hatfield, the “old man” of the gang, after stating that they had been well treated while in the Pike County jail, gave the following account of the celebrated feud: “The whole trouble, so far as I know, began about six or eight years ago. I had five brothers, Ellison, Elias, Anderson, Smith and Patterson. Ellison was the first one killed. Three of the McCoy boys shot and cut him on Blackberry Creek, on the Kentucky side, and he died the next day. The trouble, I believe, was started by one of the McCoy boys attempting to arrest Anderson Hatfield’s son, Johnson about eight years ago. There was a row then, but I do not remember exactly what it was.” “After Ellison Hatfield was killed, Talbert, Richard and Farmer McCoy, all young men, were killed by a crowd supposed to have come from West Virginia. The killing was done on the bridge between Blackberry and Mates Creeks. The next Pike County grand jury indicted a lot of people in West Virginia. No one was arrested, however, and after that Jeff McCoy, who is Bill Daniels’ brother-in-law heard Daniels and Tom Wallace abusing the Hatfields and a quarrel ensued. McCoy attempted to arrest Wallace and a fight took place. This resulted in Captain Hatfield arresting McCoy, and when McCoy tried to get away he was killed by the men who were guarding him. It was said that Captain Hatfield and Tom Wallace killed him. Some time after this a squad of men went to Randolph McCoy’s house and killed one of his sons and a daughter and beat up his old woman. This was charged to the Hatfields, but I never knew anything about it till sometime after the murders were committed. Shortly after this a company of Pike County men was formed to follow the Hatfields and kill them. They came into West Virginia and found Jim Vance and Captain Hatfield on a bridge near Thacker’s Creek. They shot Vance to death and wounded Captain Hatfield. After that the Kentuckians came in and captured us while we were at work on our farms. None of us resisted and no injury was done us, but if there was any authority for confining us in jail I never heard of it. County Attorney J. Lee Ferguson, of Pike, was questioned concerning the claim of the prisoners that they were innocent. He laughed at the idea, and said that while the worst of the Hatfield crowd had not been captured, the men who are now in the Louisville jail are undoubtedly a part of the gang. He declared that the prisoners had not been unlawfully imprisoned, that after having crossed the border line between West Virginia and Kentucky had been legally arrested and taken to jail by the proper officers. He did not deny that the West Virginians had been forcibly taken from their houses, but held that the Kentuckians were justified by the dangers threatening them in taking the matter into their hands, when the West Virginia authorities refused to assist in restraining and punishing the outlaws, who had only to cross a narrow stream to commit the most serious crimes and then came back again to secure safely from the law.

Sentenced for Life
Wall Hatfield Convicted of Murdering the Three Mccoys
New York, September 5 – a Pikeville, KY special says: The trial of Wall Hatfield has been concluded. The jury found him guilty of being an accessory to the act of murdering the three McCoys – Tolbert, aged 38 years; Randall, 19 years, and Farmer, 14 years. Alexander Messer confessed to the murder of Farmer, the youngest, and both were sentenced to the penitentiary for life. These trials are a result of the Hatfield-McCoy feud, which has caused so much terror on the line of Kentucky and West Virginia during the two or three years. It would be difficult to ascertain just how many lives have been sacrificed in this famous vendetta.

He will recount some of his feud experiences, which embrace some of the most desperate encounters in West Virginia’s history. Hatfield was here with his son, Dr. George Hatfield, calling on Gov. H D. Hatfield, a relative, when a tempting offer to go on the vaudeville stage was made to him, and he accepted.

“Devil” Anse Converted
Feudist Hatfield Tired of Gun Work; Embraces Religion
Logan, WV: October 16 – Anse Hatfield, known throughout Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee as “Devil Anse” Hatfield of Hatfield-McCoy feud fame, as embraced religion. At a revival meeting near his home, at the head of Island Creek, Hatfield made public confession and was baptized by Rev. W. D. Garrett, better known as “Uncle Detse.” Hatfield says he is tired of feuds, of which he has done his share of the gun work. It’s the simple and quite life for him from now on.

Pneumonia Ends Career of Devil Anse Hatfield
Noted Feud Leader Had Always Predicted He Would Live to Die Natural Death
Had None of Attributes Bad Man in Character
Spent Last Fifteen Years of His Life Quietly and Peacefully on Small Farm He Owned in Logan County
Will be Buried There Sunday
Huntington, WV, Jan. 7 – Funeral services for “Devil Anse” Hatfield, noted feud leader, who died at his home on Island Creek, Logan county, Thursday night of pneumonia, will be held at three o’clock Sunday afternoon.
Williamson, WV, Jan. 7 – Reports reaching Williamson tonight were that Devil Anse Hatfield, leader of the clan in the Hatfield-McCoy feud in the 80’s and 90’s, had died at his home on Island Creek, Logan county, of pneumonia last night. Relatives here were without word of the death.

Anderson (“Devil Anse”) Hatfield was one of the leaders of the historic feud between the Hatfield and McCoy families in the mountains of West Virginia and northern Kentucky. Shot at from ambush and in hand-to-hand combat scores of times with the McCoys, he had always predicted he would live to die a natural death, as he now has at the age of eighty, without bearing any marks of battle.

“Devil Anse” had a reputation as a crack shot, that was known throughout the mountainous region of the two states, and at the age of seventy he could shoot a squirrel out of the tallest timber. He often turned the trick for admirers, with the old rifle that he carried ready for action at all hours, and with which during the early eighties, he would shoot on sight any member of the McCoy family.

The celebrated feud of the Hatfield family with the McCoys was started over some hogs, one of the Hatfields winning a lawsuit that was brought to determine their ownership. Soon after that a brother of “Devil Anse” was shot and wounded in more than fifteen places by one of the McCoys. The feud then started and did not end until the few remaining McCoys went over into Kentucky, where they now reside.

“Devil Anse” had none of the attributes of the “bad men” in his character. He always was recognized as a loyal friend of the many with whom he was acquainted. Numbered among those who believed he had been right in the position he took during the feud days, were the late Judge John J. Jackson, known as the “Iron Judge,” who was appointed to the federal bench by President Lincoln, and former Governor E. W. Wilson, the former protecting Hatfield form [sic] capture when he had been called into court, and the latter refusing to honor a requisition of the governor of Kentucky, for the arrest of “Devil Anse” on a charge of killing some particular member of the McCoy family.

Detectives, real and alleged, had arranged for the capture of Hatfield, spurred by a reward, after they had seen to it that he was indicted on a charge of whiskey selling, in 1888. Judge Jackson was on the bench at the time and was informed of the danger that awaited the accused man. Judge Jackson sent word to Hatfield that if he would appear in court with out an officer being sent for him, the court would see that he had ample protection until he returned to his home in Logan County.

Hatfield appeared and was acquitted of the charge against him. Some of the detectives pounced upon him soon after he left the court room, but Judge Jackson summoned all of them before him, and threatened to send them all to jail, directing special officers to see that Hatfield was permitted to reach his home. After Hatfield was well on his way, Judge Jackson told the detectives that if they wanted their man they would have to get him, just like the McCoys had been trying to do for a number of years. They never went.

“Anse” Hatfield spent the last fifteen years of his life quietly and peaceably on a small farm he owned in Logan County. He raised a good many hogs and but seldom left his community. Once he was prevailed upon by some enterprising amusement manager to go on the vaudeville stage. He made all preparations to do so but abandoned the idea when an old indictment was produced, which had been quashed on condition that the old mountaineer agree to remain at home the rest of his days.

Hatfield was born in Logan county, West Virginia, but then in the domain of the Old Dominion, in 1841, a short distance from the old cabin in which he died.

Charleston Gazette, January 10, 1921
“In the Beginning…Saying Goodbye to a Legend.
The funeral of William Anderson ‘Devil Anse’ Hatfield
At the funeral of Devil Anse Hatfield, there were many stories in local papers about what happened but this from the Charleston Gazette of January 10, 1921, is an excerpt about a special baptism that day.

At the grave “Cap” Hatfield told “Uncle Dike” Garrett that he had made his peace with God and was ready to be baptized whenever the minister said “I will baptize you boy,” said the old preacher, “in the very hole where I baptized your pappy.” “Cap” Hatfield raised his hands above his head and declared that he was done with malice and with fighting and that if any man wanted his life or his blood he would not resist.

The casket, covered with flowers, was borne around the mountainside by twelve strong men. Rev. Green McNeely companion preacher to “Uncle Dike” Garrett who calls him his son in the gospel, spoke a few simple words, not of the dead man, but of the lesson of death, and loosing flowers upon the coffin, now incased in a steel vault, pronounced the words “Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” Present at this scene were the eleven surviving children of “Devil Anse,” almost all of his forty grandchildren and several great grandchildren. There are about seventy-five direct descendants.

The farewell of the widow was taken at the home. At seventy-five she was unable to follow around the mountain after the body of the man with whom she had lived for sixty-one years. Prayer at the grave was offered by W.A. Robinson, who was a Confederate soldier in the company commanded by Captain Anderson Hatfield.

The Island Creek train which bore the funeral contingent from Logan waited at Stirrat, the nearest point to the Hatfield home, until its passengers returned. The word had gone forth that a patriot had fallen, and in response there was a gathering of the clans. From all directions came men, women and children until thousands were assembled in a spot chosen originally because of inaccessibility in an accessible land. The day was raw and ugly, rain and snow falling alternately while the damp air pierced to the bone. The crowd followed and stood in the rain during the services.

Like those of the house they were unusual as compared with such services outside the mountains.
Sid Thompson and his young choir sang song after song, old time chants that fell strongly upon the ear of lowlanders. The old preacher exhorted those about him that they too must shortly go and there was a scene when the family and near relatives gathered to say goodbye to the dead. The casket was opened and an umbrella was held up to keep the rain out of the casket while they said farewell. The body was laid to rest in the family graveyard beside those of Troy and Elias, the two sons whose tragic deaths in Fayette County a few years before occasioned the only break in the family circle before the passing of the patriarch.

Statue of Noted Feudist Erected
Life Size Figure of “Devil Anse” Hatfield Placed in Family Cemetery
Huntington, WV: April 12 – “Devil Anse” Hatfield, West Virginia’s most noted feudist, has been memorialized by a life-sized statue shipped here from Carrara, Italy, where it was carved by a world-famous sculptor. The statue shows Hatfield standing erect in the typical garb of the mountains. It is cut from Italian marble from a design furnished by F. C. McColm, of this city. The statue is thirteen feet high. It has been erected in the Hatfield family cemetery, on Main Island Creek, Logan County, near the old feudist’s home. The statue was made at the request of the widow and children of “Devil Anse.” On the front of it is inscribed:

Captain Anderson Hatfield, 1839-1921.” On the opposite side is engraved the names of his thirteen children.

Hatfield family cemetery being threatened by brush
Sarah Ann, WV (AP) – Long ago the Hatfield family had a famous feud with the McCoys of Kentucky. Now the Hatfields are battling nature. The family cemetery on a remote Logan County mountaintop is being threatened by brush and weeds. Jean Hatfield is the granddaughter-in-law of family patriarch Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield. She’s tended the cemetery for the past seven years. But she says she can no longer afford to pay someone to mow and cut back the brush at the end of a steep dirt trail. The cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places but has no government money for upkeep. Recently the cemetery was tidied up by Logan County government workers. But Jean Hatfield would like for the cemetery to be under constant care. She says the cemetery needs a new bridge and access road so that family members can continue to lay relatives to rest there.

Newspaper Article – The Thompson Killing
The killing of James Thompson by John T. Vance is one of those unfortunate affairs which has grown out of the prevalent disregard of private rights and the habit of carrying the deadly Winchester. Whether Vance is justifiable or not is for a jury of his peers to say, and we would in no wise assume a duty which is entirely theirs, but the fact still remains that one man is dead, leaving a large family to the mercies of the world, and the other is forced to an expense which at best is hard to meet in the present depression. This might have been prevented had mutual friends interfered in time. Both were good citizens and useful to the community, and had earnest effort been made to settle the dispute between them, Jim Thompson would have been alive and John Vance a free man. We have too few men who are peace-makers and too many ready to encourage trouble.

Charleston Daily Mail, February 15, 1952
Hatfield Brothers Killed in Shootout
Recalls Slaying Of Hatfield Boys
By Charles Connor Those of you who read Don Seagle’s interesting story on “Devil Anse” Hatfield in last Sunday’s Daily Mail probably remember the statement that not one of his 11 children died in the blazing Hatfield – McCoy feud of the late 1800’s.

Going further than that, only two of the famed chieftain’s 11 children have died anything other than natural deaths thus far. Those two – Elias and Troy – met death violently some 30 miles upriver from Charleston outside a little house at Harewood. The man who supplies this information is 79-year-old Enoch Shamblin of Pocataligo, who was tending bar for the Hatfield boys at Boomer in 1911 when they were shot and killed by an immigrant Italian laborer.

“I closed the bar, which was the longest in the state at that time,” said Shamblin the other day while sunning himself outside Goff’s grocery. “Within 10 minutes, I was at the side of Troy who told me, ‘Enoch, I won’t be here long.’ The shooting occurred at 11 o’clock that morning. Troy died at 4 p. m. His brother lay dead in the yard, as did the Italian who shot them.

“The Italian was a big man, 240 pounds I reckon, and he had been hauling beer into Boomer from Kanawha County. The Hatfield boys considered this an infringement on their territory and took him out and whipped him one time. He told them that wouldn’t stop him, and it didn’t.

“He fetched up another load of beer a few days later to sell to all the Italians living up Boomer hollow. The Hatfield boys heard about it and tracked him up there. He made it to this house at Harewood, though. They followed him there, and he shot both of them.

“He must have figured he had killed them, because he left the house and was going out the gate when Troy, who was laying beside the house, raised up and shot him in the back of the head. He dropped and filled up the gate – he was that big.”

Enoch, a Kanawha farm boy who went to Smithers to become stable boss for a mining company, took a job as bartender when he found he could make $100 a month. He had been making only $65 at the stable.
“They paid well because they could hardly get anyone to tend bar,” he said. “In the six years I worked there, I had 57 fights. I weighed about 190 pounds then, was 6-1 in height, and strong as a bull because of the farm work I had done before going there.

The Sims boys owned the bar when I started work, but Troy and Elias bought into it later and came over from Logan County. Joe and Tennis, two of Devil Anse’s other sons, helped run it from time to time, too.
“Even then, the Hatfield boys didn’t want to talk about the feud in which their father had been a leader. I remember a lot of the men who came into our place asked them about it, but they shrugged it off and went about their business. “Both Troy and Elias were the best fellows you’d want to meet, mister. Good as I ever saw. They respected me and I respected them.”

In those rip-roaring days before the state adopted its prohibition amendment in 1912, Enoch recalls it was nothing for the bar to take in $3,000 on a pay day. Business through the week never fell below $300 a day either.
“I guess there were some of the meanest fellows alive living around there in those days,” he said, “and a lot of them came there to whip me. They used to take bets on who could whip the bartender. I soon learned them, though. I never fought any of them more than once.

“One big 200-pound fellow standing 6-4 came down from Gauley Bridge one Saturday night. I remember the showboat was tied up at the river bank and Elias told me to stay and tend bar and that I could go see the show Monday night. This big man came in and tried to chase people out of the bar, just aiming for a fight. It was about 8 o’clock. We squared off and I hauled back and hit him so hard he was killed for five hours. Yessir, Elias Hatfield came back from the showboat to find him lying in the floor. He finally came to about 1 a. m. when we tossed a bucket of beer over him.”

Shamblin says he also had to whip a man named “Fighting Bill” from Montgomery who had whipped everyone in that town and was looking for new fields to conquer.
“The boys warned me he was coming and I told them that ‘I ain’t gonna bother anyone but I ain’t gonna be bothered, either.’ Sure enough, he stormed through the door, turned over some tables, and I had to come around the bar and kill him for an hour or two.” When the state went dry, Enoch came back to Kanawha with his hard-earned cash and bought a 100- acre farm near Pocataligo where he still lives.

Strange, though is the fact that “Devil Anse” and all his sons successfully dodged the hail of bullets which erupted periodically on the West Virginia-Kentucky border during their feuding with the McCoys, and then, in “peaceful” Kanawha valley, two of them met violent death at the business end of a blazing pistol.
“I saw them ship the bodies of Troy and Elias back to Logan county,” said Shamblin. “It was a sad day at Boomer and we closed the bar out of respect. The Hatfield boys were well-liked.”

“Devil Anse,” who said he always felt he would die a natural death, passed away Jan. 8, 1921. To the right of his grave are those of his sons, Troy and Elias.

Ft. Wayne Gazette, December 7, 1895
A Fourteen-Year Old Murderer

Hatfield Brothers Killed in Shootout
Montgomery News
October 20, 1911
A Triangular Shooting
Results in the Death of All Participants at Harewood, Near Montgomery, Tuesday, Shortly Before Noon
Elias And Troy Hatfield Dead
Octtavio Jerome, Italian Who Fired the Fatal Shots Into the Bodies of the Hatfield Brothers is Also Dead as a Result of Troy Hatfield’s Effective Return Fire

The first break, or death in a family of thirteen children, sons and daughters of Anderson and Levisa Hatfield, occurred Tuesday shortly after the noon hour when Elias and Troy Hatfield succumbed to bullet wounds inflicted upon them by Octavio Jerome, an Italian who resides here in Montgomery with his family and who was also killed by Troy Hatfield, after he had received his death wounds.
The shooting occurred at Harewood a short distance below Boomer, and about three miles from Montgomery on the Kanawha & Michigan railroad, in the house of another Italian by the name of Angeline with whom Jerome was transacting business matters when the Hatfields arrived.
The killing is the outcome, it is said, of the violation by Jerome of an agreement that existed between Carl Hanson, who conducts a saloon at Boomer. It is said that at the time the Cannelton saloon was established, an agreement was made between Hatfield and Hanson that neither would encroach upon the others territory in the sale of beers and liquors and that a certain boundary was defined which was mutually satisfactory. Jerome was employed by Hanson to solicit orders from Italians and others along the K. & M., for liquors and beer and that he made regular deliveries of the goods sold in this manner. On several occasions, it is said Jerome violated the agreement and on these occasions, he was warned by Hatfield not to repeat them. The warnings had no effect and recently Jerome was taken severely to task, and it is alleged was given a thrashing. Still Jerome continued to solicit orders at will where-ever he pleased and on Tuesday he boarded the 11:10 train at Cannelton and went to Boomer, it being his intention to meet a wagon at Boomer that he had started in that direction from Cannelton loaded with beers and liquors. It is further stated, that Elias Hatfield learned of this, and in company with his brother, Troy, started down the railroad track to see Jerome about the matter. On the road they met the wagon and caused the driver to turn and go back, toward Cannelton and then they proceeded to the house of Angeline where Jerome was.
The two brothers walked upon the front porch of the house and knocked on the door, and the door was opened to them by Angeline, who occupied the house with his wife and children. Elias knew Angeline well and shaking hands with him, asked if Jerome was there. Angeline responded in the affirmative, stating that he was in one of the back rooms. Elias, started into the house while Angeline stepped out on the porch, and just as he stepped within the room a pistol shot rang out. Turning slightly he stepped farther into the room and two more shots were fired and the elder of the two brothers fell to the floor, with three bullets in his body, Troy stepped over his brother’s body and in quick succession three more shots were fired by the Italian all of them striking Troy. Troy ran out of the house in pursuit of the Italian who had jumped out of the back door into the back yard, and with his life blood took deadly aim and in a flash flowing freely from the wounds, had sent four bullets into Jerome. The first bullet fired by Troy struck the Italian in the right side of the head and came out through the left eye causing instant death. Upon being hit by the first bullet the Italian turned fell front to Troy, who was supporting himself by leaning against the house and as the foreigner was falling forward three more bullets pierced his body. These bulletts [sic] entered the breast, one below each nipple and the other midway between these two.
Another story of the affair is to the effect that the entire trouble arose because of the objection of Hatfield to Jerome supplying trade formerly supplied by him, and that recently an argument with reference to the matter ensued between Elias Hatfield and Jerome in which the latter came out pretty badly used. It is said by persons at Boomer that Jerome had been warned, that the Hatfields were on their way to Harewood on the day of the shooting, and he was prepared to meet them. It was stated that Jerome was on the porch of the house and he saw the Hatfields coming, and remarked that he had better be going, and went into the house leaving his friend sitting on the porch. The brother then arrived at the house and following incidents were about as stated in the beginning of the account of this affair.
Elias Hatfield lived but a minute or two, and managed before life left his body to crawl to the back yard. He said something to his brother and indicated on his body the location of the wounded Troy, lived forty-seven minutes and was conscious up to the last.
Another brother of the Hatfields, Joseph, who was at Boomer arrived at the scene of the trouble within a few minutes and conversed with his brother, Troy. The dying man told his brother that no one but Jerome, Elias and himself were mixed up in the affaira [sic], and that it was his desire that no further trouble be raised about it. His exact words are said to have been “Let no further trouble come of this, as only we three are concerned, and we will all be dead.”
News of the affair was received in Montgomery within a few minutes after it occurred and caused no little excitement, as details were lacking.
Constable Parry, policeman Warren and other officers went immediately to Harewood in Judge Simms automobile but their services were not needed. When they arrived Angeline had been placed under arrest by an officer, but was released when Troy Hatfield told the officer that he had nothing to do with the shooting or the trouble that led up to it.
While the account of the affair as given above is generally thought to be as nearly true as it will be possible to ascertain, many other reports have been circulated differing somewhat as to just how the shooting was done, and as to the causes leading up to it, but all of these stories have as a basis alleged encroachment of Jerome, upon territory that he should not have gone on. It is also said that Elias Hatfield fired at least one of the shots that struck Jerome, but this is not thought to be true. His pistols were found lying on the floor of the room in which the shooting started, but the authorities or others have been unable to find the persons who picked up the revolvers, neither have they been able to locate the weapons. Troy Hatfield’s pistol contained four empty shells, and those who are familiar with his ability to shoot, are reasonably certain that only he and Jerome did any shooting. Jerome used a 32 Colt’s Special, and fired the six bullets, dividing them evenly, three at Elias and three at Troy, all of them taking effect. The bullet which caused the almost instant death of Elias entered the back just below the right shoulder and passed through the body coming out at the left breast. One other bullet struck him in the left side and one in the right side. Troy was shot through the left wrist, the muscle of the right arm and in the stomach. The fact that one of the bullets passed through the muscle of his right arm renders his shooting remarkable in no small degree for every shot he fired found lodgement in Jerome[‘]s body at a point where either would have caused his death.
Troy Hatfield was considered, one of the best marksmen with a revolver in the country. Stories of his wonderful marksmanship have been related often in this city, and many persons here have been witnesses to feats of marksmanship performed by him that would hardly be believed by other than an eye witness. One of his favorite stunts with the revolver was to shoot half dollar coins pitched in the air by friends who were willing to sacrifice the value of the coin just to witness the marksmanship of young Hatfield. Many donated their coins not fearing they would be hit, but in all such cases these “Doubting Thomasses,” came up short fifty cents.
Troy Hatfield and his brother, Elias were both well known here in Montgomery and those who knew them can not say that they ever met more pleasant gentlemen than they. Elias Hatfield had been engaged in the saloon business at Boomer for a number of years and his business affairs brought him to Montgomery almost daily. Upon these frequent visits he was met by a large number of Montgomery people, as was his brother who also visited the city frequently. They were always pleasant in manner and because of their pleasant attitude toward all with whom they came in contact, they became extremely popular here, and the news of their untimely end caused much regret among their friends in this city. They were quiet and unassuming men, who had the reputation for tending to their own business.
They were both married, Elias, having married the daughter of J. Holland, a well known coal man of Keeney’s Creek. To this union one child was born, and Mrs. Hatfield with this child are among the surviving relatives.
Troy Hatfield was also married, but no children were born to the union. He had been at Boomer in the employ of his brother for several months.
Octavio Jerome the Italian has been a resident of Montgomery for about two years, during a greater part of which time he was employed in the restaurant which is conducted in the Mammoth Cave saloon. Four months ago when the saloon at Cannelton was opened, his services were transferred from the local saloon to that at Cannelton. He continued his residence in this city, however, having rooms in the old hotel Montgomery building. His daughter was recently married to Mr. Sam Nicastro, one of the best known young men of Montgomery, who is engaged with his father in the grocery business.
He was extremely popular among his countrymen and Americans who had become acquainted with him, in this city liked him very much. He was unusually well informed on American customs, and by close application had gained an excellent knowledge of our language, being called upon often as interpreter in the local courts and in business transactions between Americans and Italians.
The funeral of Jerome was held Thursday afternoon at two o’clock from the Catholic church, of this city, Rev. Father T. H. Collins, officiating. Interment was in the Montgomery cemetery.
Troy and Elias Hatfield were sons of Anderson and Louvisa Hatfield, who have been life long residents of Logan County. Elias was born in Logan County, near Williamson now in Mingo county November 4th, 1877, and lacked but eighteen days of being 34 years of age when he met his death. Troy was born in the year 1879, at the same place as his brother, and where both of them resided with their parents until they had grown to be sturdy youths, when the family moved to a point near Logan Court House.
To Anderson and Lovisa Hatfield who are now 71 and 60 years old, respectively, thirteen children were born, nine boys and four grils [sic]. The family has been bound together, as it were, by cords impossible to sever, and at no time were any of the brothers separated by such distance as to render it impossible for them to get together within a few hours. Such love and devotion as existed between the members of this family is probably unparalelled [sic] in the history of time, and the death of Elias and Troy, is the first break that has ever occurred in the family. All of the surviving brothers arrived in this city within a few hours after the death of their brothers and remained here until Wednesday noon when they left to accompany the remains to Logan County.
The remains of the two Hatfields were brought to this city and placed in charge of the Davis Undertaking company Tuesday afternoon and the bodies were viewed at the undertaking establishment Wednesday morning by hundreds of friends and acquaintances and ma[n]y who went out of curiosity.
Likewise the body of Jerome, was viewed at the J. W. Montgomery Undertaking establishment, where it was taken Tuesday afaternoon [sic] to be prepared for burial.
Elias and Troy Hatfield are survived by their parents, now residing on the old Hatfield home place twelve miles out of Logan, the county seat of Logan county, and seven brothers and four sisters, as follows: Johnson and Robert, of Warren Cliff; W. A., of War Eagle, Joseph D., of Boomer; Dr. E. R., of Eventon; Willis, of Herberton and Tennyson, also of Herberton, he being the youngest of the seven surviving brothers. The sisters surviving are Mrs. Nancy Vance, Mrs. Mary House, Mrs. Bettie Caldwell and Mrs. Rosie Browning, all residing near Oilville, Logan County.
Two caskets, laden with many floral designs, were placed on train No. 3 at noon Wednesday and taken to Huntington and from there to the old home place at Oilville, and today, Friday, will be interred in one grave.

Notes for JOHNSE HATFIELD:
Virginia Murdered Caught
Publishers Press Dispatch
Williamson, WV, July 20, Deputy United States Marshall Dan Cunningham, with two detective aids, late on Monday night, on Poplar Creek, in this county, captured the notorious Johnson Hatfield. Hatfield was taken by surprise and surrendered. He was hurried to Kentucky. Hatfield was wanted for the part played by him at the time the McCoy home was burned and a defenseless woman, Alafair McCoy, and a male member of the McCoy function (sic faction) were killed by the Hatfields in the time of the vendetta on News Year’s night, nine years ago. Since then a charge of murder has stood against him, and a large reward has been offered for his arrest. He had outwitted the constables time and again. It was reported here this morning that deputies were after Hatfield’s father, Devil Anse, and others of the clan, and that serious trouble seemed imminent.

Hatfield Must Go To Prison
Murderer of a Woman in a Feud to Serve Life Sentence
Special to the New York Times
Frankfort, KY, March 11 – After ten years Johnson Hatfield must go to prison for life for the murder of Alifair McCoy. This marks another step in the Hatfield-McCoy feud, which created a reign of terror in Kentucky until ten years ago, and has broken out at intervals since, but only in the way of individual killings. Most of the leaders have either been convicted or have been shot to death. The case of Johnson Hatfield was affirmed by the Court of Appeals yesterday. His victim was a woman. He was convicted in Pike County, and given a life sentence and has fought the case desperately to the end. Hatfield was indicted in Pike County for the murder of Alifair McCoy in August 1888 and also was indicted for having previously conspired with others to kill her. Hatfield had ten years of freedom before he was finally apprehended. He was arraigned for trail the first time in September, 1898, when he obtained a change of venue to Floyd County on the ground of prejudice. Hatfield then appealed from the life sentence of the Floyd Circuit court on the ground of errors in instruction. The Court of Appeals in a decision by Judge Burnam sustains the verdict. The case is notable as being one of the few successful convictions in the feud, yet of all the men accused of murder not one has ever been hanged.

Note: Ellison Mounts was hung for the murder of Alifair February 18, 1889.

Notes for ROSEANNA MCCOY:
The Love of Rosanna McCoy

Come and listen to my story, Of fair Rosanna McCoy.
She loved Johnse Hatfield, Old Devil Anse’s boy.
But the McCoys and Hatfields, Had long engaged in strife.
And never the son of a Hatfield, Should take a McCoy to wife.
But when they met each other, On Blackberry Creek, they say.
She was riding behind her brother, When Johnse rode along that way.
“Who is that handsome fellow?” She asked young Tolbert McCoy.
Said he, “Turn your head sister,” “That’s Devil Anse’s boy.”
But somehow they met each other, And it grieved the Hatfields sore.
While, Randall, the young girl’s father Turned his daughter from his door.
It was down at old Aunt Betty’s, They were courting one night they say
When down came Rosanna’s brothers, And took young Johnse away.
And Rosanna’s heart was heavy, For she hoped to be his wife,
And well she knew her brothers, Would take his precious life.
Straight to the Hatfield’s stronghold, She rode, so fearless and brave,
To tell them that Johnse was in danger And beg them his life to save.
And the Hatfields rode in a body, And saved young Johnse’s life.
But never, they said, a Hatfield, Should take a McCoy to wife.
But the feud is long forgotten, And time has healed the sting,
As little Bud and Melissy, This song of their kinsmen sing.
No longer is it forbidden, That a fair-haired young McCoy,
Shall love her fair-haired neighbor, Or marry a Hatfield boy.
And the people still remember, Though she never became his bride,
The love of those two young people, And Rosanna’s midnight ride.

Son of Noted Feudist Kills Young Physician in West Virginia
Charleston, WV, Jan. 1 – Dr. Edwin O. Thornhill, aged 35, a well-known physician and business man of the southern section of West Virginia, was shot and killed today by Willie Hatfield, son of the noted feudist “Devil Anse” Hatfield, in a drug store in Mullins. The physician was attending an injured person when the shooting occurred.

Hatfield, it is said, asked Dr. Thornton to issue a prescription for a pint of whiskey. The doctor refused and when Hatfield used abusive language, the physician slapped him. Hatfield, it is alleged, drew a revolver and fired two bullets into Dr. Thornhill’s body. Stepping closer, Hatfield again fired two more shots, each taking effect, in the head of the prostrate man. Hatfield ran from the drug store but was captured within a few minutes by people who had witnessed the shooting.

Fearing lynching, Hatfield pleaded with the officers to protect him and he was taken to Pineville [sic Pikeville], county seat, where deputies tonight are guarding the prisoner in the jail, which is frail.

Wayne County News – February 24, 1891 a letter from Cap Hatfield was printed that read: “I ask your valuable paper for these few lines. A general amnesty has been declared in the famous Hatfield & McCoy feud, and I wish to say something of the old and the new. I do not wish to keep the old feud alive and I suppose that everybody, like myself, is tired of the names of Hatfield and McCoy, and the “Border Warfare” in time of peace. The war spirit in me has abated and I sincerely rejoice at the prospect of peace. I have devoted my life to arms. We have undergone a fearful loss of noble lives and valuable property in the struggle. We being, like adam, not the first transgressors. Now I propose to rest in a spirit of peace.”

Feudist’s Illness Is Giving Concern
“Cap” Hatfield is Seriously Ill at Family Home on Island Creek
Logan, Aug. 1 – Concern is felt for William Anderson “Cap” Hatfield, most famous living figure in the famed Hatfield-McCoy feud of the last century, who is ill at his home on Main Island Creek. He is suffering stomach malady and complications, according to physicians. Among those visiting his bedside during the week were Senator Henry D. Hatfield, of Huntington, United States senator and cousin of the sick man. He will likely visit here again during the week-end. “Cap” Hatfield is the oldest son of “Devil Anse” Hatfield, outstanding figure in the feud. He is an elder brother of Sheriff Joe Hatfield of this county and Tennis S. Hatfield, former Logan sheriff, and the father of Police Judge Coleman Hatfield, Magistrate L. W. Hatfield and Deputy Sheriff Bob Hatfield, all of this county.

“Cap” Hatfield Dies; Famed as Feudist
Was Leader in Kentucky – West Virginia Clan Fights That Lasted Half Century
More Than 100 Lives Lost
Central Figure in Mountain Wars
Spent Last Years In Peace – Succumbs in Baltimore
Baltimore, MD, Aug. 22 – “Cap” William Anderson Hatfield of Loan, WV, who with others of the Hatfield family figured in the notorious Hatfield – McCoy mountaineers’ feud which raged in Southwestern West Virginia for half a century, died today at the age of 68 at the Johns Hopkins Hospital from a brain ailment. Accompanied by his wife, a son and a daughter, the mountaineer arrived in Baltimore Sunday and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, for he had been ill for two months at home. In more recent years the younger members of the family came out of the mountains, forgot their interfamily troubles and attended Southern schools. “Cap Hatfield was called the most dangerous of his clan.” Born in 1862, the year after the famous McCoy-Hatfield vendetta commenced, he was the eldest of the thirteen children of Anderson (Devil Anse) Hatfield, chief of the clan and its leader throughout the forty-eight years of the feud. More than 100 men, women and children of the two families were slain in the battles, which raged in Logan and Mingo Counties, West Virginia, and Pike County, Kentucky. It was said in those days that whenever a McCoy head showed out of a window a Hatfield gun would bark; whenever a Hatfield gazed from his home at the surrounding hill country a McCoy gun would bark. Before the Civil War the two families, large landowners – the McCoys in Kentucky and the Hatfields in West Virginia – were friendly. They had been brought together by business and intermarriage. The sons of both families joined the home guards and took part in raids into the bordering States. Thus their relations became strained.

Trouble Began Over Stolen Hogs.
In 1863, the year of the Battle of Gettysburg, according to the McCoy story, the McCoys turned loose some hogs which were stolen by the Hatfields. The Hatfields indignantly denied the allegation and a trial followed. Whatever its outcome, it was unsatisfactory to both sides. The first bloodshed occurred soon after, when Devil Anse killed Harmon McCoy. Occasional killings followed, and in 1882 began a romance which fanned the quiescent embers of the feudists’ hates. Jonce Hatfield and Rosanna McCoy fell in love! She was a daughter of Randolph McCoy; the chieftain of the McCoy clan, and Jonce had already been married. They lived together and their families became increasingly embittered, so that killings recurred with new vigor. Rosanna returned to her family in Pike County during the height of the fray, but Jonce, like a true lover, continued to visit her. He was finally captured by the men of her family, who turned him over to Sheriff’s men to be arrested for carrying a concealed gun, although they themselves were always armed. Fearing her relatives would murder Jonce, Rosanna hastened to the Hatfields and aroused them.

Three Brothers Killed at Once
“Devil Anse” and his son “Cap” headed a band which rescued Jonce and renewed warfare which followed resulted in the stabbing of Ellison Hatfield, one of “Devil Anse’s” sons, by four McCoys. As Ellison lay dying Elias and Val Hatfield arrived and, finding what had happened, headed a troop of kinsmen who seized Tolbert, Pharmer and Randolph McCoy. The Hatfields took the McCoys back to Logan County and there decided that if Ellison died their prisoners must. Ellison died and the Hatfields killed the three brothers. A Hatfield, sitting as coroner, pronounced the murders to have been committed by unidentified persons and the Pike County grand jury indicted twenty-three Hatfields. No one, however would serve the warrants. The enmity that followed resulted in an expedition to the McCoy homestead led by “Cap” Hatfield. The home was set afire. As Mrs. McCoy, wife of Randolph, ran out, she was knocked senseless. Her 16-year-old daughter was shot dead and Randolph shot his way to freedom. Calvin McCoy also was killed and victory belonged to the Hatfields. Reprisals followed, with more deaths on both sides, and at last “Cap” and his step-son were lodged in the Mingo County jail. “Devil Anse” tried to effect a jail delivery but failed. Soon afterward “Cat,” with the aid of a smuggled hatchet, chopped his way out.

The Fight of “Devil’s Backbone.”
There was fight left in the Hatfields. A dozen of the clan, herded together, were pursued by a posse headed by Randolph McCoy and the battle which followed ended the lives of half dozen on each side, but the Hatfields, led by the valiant “Cap,” fled into the heart of their own country, where they took refuge in the “Devil’s Backbone,” a hugh crag. The deputies closed in and opened fire, finally bringing up dynamite to blast the crag. The blast went off and the handful of Hatfields charged their greatly outnumbered enemy. Down toppled the “Devil’s Backbone” with a second blast but “Cap” and a few of his followers escaped. After 1887 the feud died down. In 1898 many of the youths of both sides went to the Spanish-American War and returned with the knowledge that the world was a larger place than they had thought.

“Cap” Hatfield Becomes Peaceful.
“Cap,” once described as “six feet of devil and 180 pounds of hell,” became peaceful, later serving as a deputy she5riff of Logan County under J. D. Hatfield, present sheriff, his brother, and Tennis Hatfield, another brother. “Cap,” who studied law by correspondence in his middle age, and had been an indefatigable reader, even in the early fighting days, was admitted to the bar. He did not practice, however. He never indulged much in reminiscence and could not be persuaded to recount his early experiences. He once did confide to friends that many of his old-time foes believed he had a charmed life. He said he “guessed” he was shot at about 300 times during the mountain warfare and was wounded but once.

NOTE: It wasn’t Cap Hatfield that was called “six feet of devil and 180 pounds of hell”, it was his father, Devil Anse.

Young Hatfield stated that he is not interested in the old feud between members of his family and the McCoys. “I just want to do my part now that this country needs men to build its national defense. The army is great and I recommend it to any boy who is looking for a good job at good pay,” he said. Pictured above are Private Hatfield and his father, T S.

Notes for HENRY DRURY HATFIELD:
Compiled by the West Virginia State Archives
September 15, 1875 – October 23, 1962
(R) McDowell County
Elected governor in 1912
Henry Drury Hatfield was born on Mate Creek in present Mingo County, the son of a Confederate soldier and nephew of Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. He graduated from Franklin College at age fifteen and received his medical degree from the University of Louisville at age nineteen. In 1904, Hatfield received a second medical degree, with a specialization in surgery, from New York University. He worked as a railroad division surgeon, mine physician, and as Mingo County health commissioner. Due to the lack of proper health facilities in southwestern West Virginia, Hatfield appealed to the legislature, which appropriated funds for the Miners Hospital No. 1 in Welch, McDowell County. After serving briefly on the McDowell County Court, he was elected to the state senate and was chosen as its president in 1911. As governor, Hatfield’s first act was to dictate a settlement to the coal miners on strike in the Paint Creek-Cabin Creek area of Kanawha County. His term in office was marked by progressive legislation regulating health conditions. A state department of health was created to enforce the existing public health laws. He proposed one of the first workers’ compensation laws in the nation and regarded the passage of this law as one of his foremost achievements. Other accomplishments included the establishment of a state bureau of labor, state road bureau, election reform, and the improvement of the mine safety program. He also supported tax increases on industry which helped offset the cost of new services and the loss in revenue from the state prohibition of alcohol, which went into effect in 1914. During World War I, Hatfield entered the Medical Corps of the Army and attained the rank of chief surgeon at an Army hospital in Detroit. From 1929 to 1935, he served in the United States Senate. He then returned to his medical practice in Huntington and in later years maintained several farms in the area. Hatfield died in Huntington in 1962.

Son of Noted Feudist Kills Young Physician in West Virginia
Charleston, WV, Jan. 1 – Dr. Edwin O. Thornhill, aged 35, a well-known physician and business man of the southern section of West Virginia, was shot and killed today by Willie Hatfield, son of the noted feudist “Devil Anse” Hatfield, in a drug store in Mullins.

Fearing lynching, Hatfield pleaded with the officers to protect him and he was taken to Pineville [sic Pikeville], county seat, where deputies tonight are guarding the prisoner in the jail, which is frail.

Wayne County News – February 24, 1891 a letter from Cap Hatfield was printed that read: “I ask your valuable paper for these few lines. A general amnesty has been declared in the famous Hatfield & McCoy feud, and I wish to say something of the old and the new. I do not wish to keep the old feud alive and I suppose that everybody, like myself, is tired of the names of Hatfield and McCoy, and the “Border Warfare” in time of peace. The war spirit in me has abated and I sincerely rejoice at the prospect of peace. I have devoted my life to arms. We have undergone a fearful loss of noble lives and valuable property in the struggle. We being, like adam, not the first transgressors. Now I propose to rest in a spirit of peace.”

Feudist’s Illness Is Giving Concern
“Cap” Hatfield is Seriously Ill at Family Home on Island Creek
Logan, Aug. 1 – Concern is felt for William Anderson “Cap” Hatfield, most famous living figure in the famed Hatfield-McCoy feud of the last century, who is ill at his home on Main Island Creek. He is suffering stomach malady and complications, according to physicians. Among those visiting his bedside during the week were Senator Henry D. Hatfield, of Huntington, United States senator and cousin of the sick man. He will likely visit here again during the week-end. “Cap” Hatfield is the oldest son of “Devil Anse” Hatfield, outstanding figure in the feud. He is an elder brother of Sheriff Joe Hatfield of this county and Tennis S. Hatfield, former Logan sheriff, and the father of Police Judge Coleman Hatfield, Magistrate L. W. Hatfield and Deputy Sheriff Bob Hatfield, all of this county.

“Cap” Hatfield Dies; Famed as Feudist
Was Leader in Kentucky – West Virginia Clan Fights That Lasted Half Century
More Than 100 Lives Lost
Central Figure in Mountain Wars
Spent Last Years In Peace – Succumbs in Baltimore
Baltimore, MD, Aug. 22 – “Cap” William Anderson Hatfield of Loan, WV, who with others of the Hatfield family figured in the notorious Hatfield – McCoy mountaineers’ feud which raged in Southwestern West Virginia for half a century, died today at the age of 68 at the Johns Hopkins Hospital from a brain ailment. Accompanied by his wife, a son and a daughter, the mountaineer arrived in Baltimore Sunday and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, for he had been ill for two months at home. In more recent years the younger members of the family came out of the mountains, forgot their interfamily troubles and attended Southern schools. “Cap Hatfield was called the most dangerous of his clan.” Born in 1862, the year after the famous McCoy-Hatfield vendetta commenced, he was the eldest of the thirteen children of Anderson (Devil Anse) Hatfield, chief of the clan and its leader throughout the forty-eight years of the feud. More than 100 men, women and children of the two families were slain in the battles, which raged in Logan and Mingo Counties, West Virginia, and Pike County, Kentucky. It was said in those days that whenever a McCoy head showed out of a window a Hatfield gun would bark; whenever a Hatfield gazed from his home at the surrounding hill country a McCoy gun would bark. Before the Civil War the two families, large landowners – the McCoys in Kentucky and the Hatfields in West Virginia – were friendly. They had been brought together by business and intermarriage. The sons of both families joined the home guards and took part in raids into the bordering States. Thus their relations became strained.

Trouble Began Over Stolen Hogs.
In 1863, the year of the Battle of Gettysburg, according to the McCoy story, the McCoys turned loose some hogs which were stolen by the Hatfields. The Hatfields indignantly denied the allegation and a trial followed. Whatever its outcome, it was unsatisfactory to both sides. The first bloodshed occurred soon after, when Devil Anse killed Harmon McCoy. Occasional killings followed, and in 1882 began a romance which fanned the quiescent embers of the feudists’ hates. Jonce Hatfield and Rosanna McCoy fell in love! She was a daughter of Randolph McCoy; the chieftain of the McCoy clan, and Jonce had already been married. They lived together and their families became increasingly embittered, so that killings recurred with new vigor. Rosanna returned to her family in Pike County during the height of the fray, but Jonce, like a true lover, continued to visit her. He was finally captured by the men of her family, who turned him over to Sheriff’s men to be arrested for carrying a concealed gun, although they themselves were always armed. Fearing her relatives would murder Jonce, Rosanna hastened to the Hatfields and aroused them.

Three Brothers Killed at Once
“Devil Anse” and his son “Cap” headed a band which rescued Jonce and renewed warfare which followed resulted in the stabbing of Ellison Hatfield, one of “Devil Anse’s” sons, by four McCoys. As Ellison lay dying Elias and Val Hatfield arrived and, finding what had happened, headed a troop of kinsmen who seized Tolbert, Pharmer and Randolph McCoy. The Hatfields took the McCoys back to Logan County and there decided that if Ellison died their prisoners must. Ellison died and the Hatfields killed the three brothers. A Hatfield, sitting as coroner, pronounced the murders to have been committed by unidentified persons and the Pike County grand jury indicted twenty-three Hatfields. No one, however would serve the warrants. The enmity that followed resulted in an expedition to the McCoy homestead led by “Cap” Hatfield. The home was set afire. As Mrs. McCoy, wife of Randolph, ran out, she was knocked senseless. Her 16-year-old daughter was shot dead and Randolph shot his way to freedom. Calvin McCoy also was killed and victory belonged to the Hatfields. Reprisals followed, with more deaths on both sides, and at last “Cap” and his step-son were lodged in the Mingo County jail. “Devil Anse” tried to effect a jail delivery but failed. Soon afterward “Cat,” with the aid of a smuggled hatchet, chopped his way out.

The Fight of “Devil’s Backbone.”
There was fight left in the Hatfields. A dozen of the clan, herded together, were pursued by a posse headed by Randolph McCoy and the battle which followed ended the lives of half dozen on each side, but the Hatfields, led by the valiant “Cap,” fled into the heart of their own country, where they took refuge in the “Devil’s Backbone,” a hugh crag. The deputies closed in and opened fire, finally bringing up dynamite to blast the crag. The blast went off and the handful of Hatfields charged their greatly outnumbered enemy. Down toppled the “Devil’s Backbone” with a second blast but “Cap” and a few of his followers escaped. After 1887 the feud died down. In 1898 many of the youths of both sides went to the Spanish-American War and returned with the knowledge that the world was a larger place than they had thought.

“Cap” Hatfield Becomes Peaceful.
“Cap,” once described as “six feet of devil and 180 pounds of hell,” became peaceful, later serving as a deputy she5riff of Logan County under J. D. Hatfield, present sheriff, his brother, and Tennis Hatfield, another brother. “Cap,” who studied law by correspondence in his middle age, and had been an indefatigable reader, even in the early fighting days, was admitted to the bar. He did not practice, however. He never indulged much in reminiscence and could not be persuaded to recount his early experiences. He once did confide to friends that many of his old-time foes believed he had a charmed life. He said he “guessed” he was shot at about 300 times during the mountain warfare and was wounded but once.

NOTE: It wasn’t Cap Hatfield that was called “six feet of devil and 180 pounds of hell”, it was his father, Devil Anse.

Seven years after disappearing – Ruvil Hale declared ‘legally dead’
By Diane Smith, Mountain Citizen Staff
Inez, Ruvil Hale has been missing seven years from his family, but the official search has ended as a member of his immediate family has declared him “legally dead.” Hale, who now would be 50, was declared dead last by a family member who wishes to remain anonymous. We don’t want a lot said, other than to abide by that family member’s wishes…”It’s for the best” another family member said. Hale disappeared July 3, 1990 from a nursing home in Paintsville. He reportedly disappeared about 10:25 a.m., 6th exact same time a Ford Tempo was stolen from the center’s parking lot. He was the prime suspect in the auto theft, but medical personnel at the center said Hale would not have been physically capable of driving very far, especially without his medication. Kentucky State Police officials searched the Jenny Wiley area, flying a helicopter over a 30-40 mile radius for two days, trying to locate Hale. But to date, police officials are baffled as no one has seen or heard from Hale since his disappearance. The car and Hale are still listed on the NCIC computer file, a nationwide computer service. While his case is not currently active, it will remain open. According to the Office of Vital Statistics in Frankfort, there is no set number of years for a missing person to be declared legally dead, without some kind of proof. “Even though this is true, you can declare someone dead after the seven years are up,” a family member said.

Pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statutes 213.086: “If a death is presumed to have occurred in the Commonwealth but the body cannot be located or recovered, a death certificate may be prepared by the state registrar upon receipt of an order of a court of competent jurisdiction, which shall include finding of facts required to complete the death certificate. Such a death certificate shall be marked ‘presumptive’ and shall show on the certificate the date of registration and shall identify the court and the date of decree.”

Hale’s family members said they would not get into the legalities of the “presumptive” death, but said they followed the lawful procedure in having Hale declared dead. Since Hale’s disappearance from the Paintsville Health Care Center, each year on his Jan. 3 birthday and again in July, his parents place a photo in the newspaper hoping it will prompt information as to what happened to him. Hale’s parents, Florence and Ernest Hale, of Pigeon Roost, continue to hope for their son’s return. “I didn’t think he could be pronounced dead until they found proof. But I guess if those family members feel it best, then so be it,” said Florence. “All I know is that I will never stop searching. We will never give up hope of finding some shred of evidence as to whether or not he is dead.”
