Both Families lost so many loved ones that I think it is fair to say neither side actually won. Legally Devil Anse got more legal judgements awarded in his favor than Randall did but since so many Hatfields & McCoys both died, I wouldnt say either won.
Johnse Hatfield loved women. He once orderd a new yellow suit to wear. He was a player and right up until the day he died he was a cheater.
Before Bad Frank died he lost his leg. He would soon after pass away but before he died they amputated his leg and it was said to be buried in a shallow grave below where they put his body a week or so later. When you visit the grave of Bad Frank Phillips you can see the small grave near his that is unmarked and contains his leg.
Many of her family have always said that she died of a broken heart. She not only lost her Johnse, watched him marry her cousin and saw her brothers and other family members killed, she birthed the child of her lover and then before the baby was six months old she died. Her heart was broken and she never recovered and is said to have morned until it killed her.
The Hatfield McCoy Feud took place around 1863 and went on for years after that. The actual fighting was long over but the officially called it over in 1891 and the two families shook hands in 1976 and marked an official end to the Hatfields and McCoys fighting. The Hatfield McCoy Feud was officially over on June 14, 2003.
The Hatfield-McCoy Feud, Hatfields & McCoys feud, war between the Hatfields and McCoys, was between two rural families, led by Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield and their kin who lived along the Tug Fork River around the years 1863-1891.
His nickname was "Devil Anse" and most people say it was given him by his mother but I believe that nobody called him Devil to his face. I think he was labelled that but it wasnt a name people called him when talking to him. Some people say it is a name that Randal McCoy gave him because of his bravery during the Civil War when they fought along side each other. And some believe it was given him in contrast to his good-tempered cousin who was called Preacher Anse Hatfield. This sounds the most likely, right ?
Devil Anse Hatifeld died of pneumonia.
Randall McCoy died many years after the feud. He fell into a fire and died of the burn.
The Hatfield McCoy Feud took place in the hills between the edge of Eastern Kentucky and Southern West Virginia. The mini-series was filmed in Romania.
Three of the McCoy sons died in one day when Devil Anse Hatfield tied them to a tree and shot them dead in 1882. Randall nearly died in 1888 when they attacked his home on the New Years day raid but he lived. Randall McCoy lost five of his children in the feud. Six if you count Roseanna McCoy who I believe died from her misery and heartache from the feud and the loss of her child.
The Tug River Valley was home to the families of the Hatfield McCoy Feud. Devil Anse Hatfield was from the West Virginia side and Randall McCoy was from the Pike County Kentucky side.
Asa Harmon McCoy was the first person to die in the Hatfield McCoy feud.
the Pig is only part of the Hatfield McCoy Feud story. Yes, they fought over the ownership of a hog that the McCoys believed the Hatfields stole, But they had many other battles between them. Who owned 5000 acres of land was one question. You can see the deed to this at the Hatfield McCoy Country Museum and decide for yourself.
Roseanna died at the age of 29. She never married. Her child was born out of wedlock to her and Johnse Hatfield, who married Roseanna's cousin Nancy.
Cap Hatfield was the second oldest son of Devil Anse Hatfield. His name came from his fathers other name which was "Captian". He had been given that name while fighting in the Civil War.
The McCoy Family made famous in the Hatfield McCoy Feud are buried for the most part in the Dils Cemetery in Pikeville Kentucky.
To this day, both families believe that there were good people in the feud. Both were driven to protect their own side and both were loyal to their names. However, both sides had murdered the other. I would say that neither side was without responsiblily for the feud and the blood of thier enemy was on both Hatfield and McCoy hands.
