Benjamin Thompson was my Great-Great Grandfather whose photo I have here. He died fighting for the Confederacy. I don't know much other than that. I queried my Elders while they lived for as much info. on our family as I could get. I am the Great-Great Grandaughter of Nancy Caroline Reynolds born in 1862. She is the Spitting image of Nancy McCoy who married Johnse Hatfield. So many questions that I want anwsers to as well. I want to know how the Reynolds fit in with The McCoys. We are Cousins I was told.  I hope that I can solve this enigma and pass on the info. to my family here.   Belinda Rohrer, PA.

I know I have Thompson ancestors who shot at each other so it is entirely possible.

Mary McCoy and John Baker Jr had a daughter named Rachel Thompson Baker so I would think there is a link between McCoy and Thompson. I too am searching for this relationship.

Here is a link to Devil Anse Hatfield who was the leader of the Hatfield clan during the Hatfield and McCoy feud. If you use the Connection to me feature under Hatfield-260, you will see the current list of connections that lead back to you.  In my case, I am 16 connections away via his brother, Ellison.
