My family is from Pikeville. Ky.   Nancy Caroline Reynolds is my Great-Great Grandmother born in 1862;    She is the spitting image of Nancy McCoy. She died in 1925, 30 yrs. before my birth. I really believe she could be a McCoy. We are cousins I was told.  I am trying to track down my family.

She had 5 daughters and lived at one time in Williamson, W.VA. then Bluefield, VA. where she is buried.
We are related to the McCoys according to my elders. How are the Reynolds related to the McCoys and Hatfields?  I have photos of Nancy Caroline and the huge one on my wall is 95 yrs. old. She is holding my Maternal Grandmother, Edith Burress. Compared to Nancy McCoy's younger photos...she looks very much identical to her. I  need to find the truth.  Can you help me?  Thank you,  Belinda (Morgan) Rohrer

My mom was just telling me today that we are somehow related to the McCoy family through our grandfather, who was a Reynolds. I am just getting started in my research, but I found your post. Perhaps, we are related?

There is a genealogical chart on both the hatfields and mccoys on wikipedia.  I reviewed them, and there is a Mary Burress and an Eleanor Burress that married Asa and William McCoy on the wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatfield%E2%80%93McCoy_feud

If there is a relationship, I bet your Edith Burress is related to either Mary or Eleanor - that married Asa and William McCoy in the early 1800s.
