I am pretty sure I am related. My great grandmothers name is in several of the family trees I have found online. She was a Hatfield. They were from the area I am from and my great grandmother was born. Can't wait to watch the History Channel show about them Memorial Day.

I just watched the trailer for that..ehh..it looks entertaining but I can already tell it's not going to be the accurate story. Just as the movie that came out in the 1940's was not exactly right. They add/change things to make it more interesting. Being closely related, I know the true story and there is a lot of false info out there, stories change over time you know?

Why did they hate each other so much?

Oh yes, of course. It probably wouldn't be AS interesting, lol. My husband was working in Pikeville for a while and at that time (this was several years ago) I didn't realize that was where alot of the history actually was. My moms side of the family is from Ewing VA and all around Lee County. Then my dads family is all from Perry, Harlan, and Pike county. Didn't realize how much history of this was in all these areas. Pretty neat.

Started as land and property disputes (some say it started over a pig being stolen, who knows). It snowballed from there. After a few killings things got pretty bad.

It comes on History channel over 3 nights this weekend. It is about the bitter feud between the Hatfield and McCoy families.
