Thanks, Elmer

One of the knowledgeable guys in the hills, up Mate Creek, is Elmer Hatfield. And I’m sure glad THE FEUDmeets his approval. I will be seeing Elmer again soon as I am heading to the West Virginia-Kentucky borderland this weekend.

Here’s what he says:

“Being the great grandson of Hogfloyd Hatfield, and having read most of Dean’s Book, I must say that I am impressed at it’s accuracy. Many events are described exactly the way my Dad and Grandpa told me as a youth.”

This plate will look a little grittier
when I get there!

  1. I am fairly certain I know where Mary McCoy is buried. I am 79 and grew up seeing her grave and the story of how she ran away from all the fighting at the age of 16 and married one of my ancestors. I can tell you where the grave is in Kentucky. The info on her headstone, her age and all seems to match up. If you want to contact me email at above email address or call me at 512-398-3857. Thank You, Betty Williams
