Okay, so growing up I heard studies of how my grandmother and grandfather fell in love and due to the feud ran off and married. I never was able to ask my grandparents however, nor am I sure which was Hatfield and which was mccoy. They do come from the general area of the famous families. I am hoping someone here may be able to aid me in my research. My grandmothers name was Eva May ?? and my grandfathers was Arnold Blankenship. . I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Might be one of those fun free-space pages which needs to be created.  Lots of external sites.  Good info on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatfield%E2%80%93McCoy_feud

In my own family search  , I too ran across a Blankenship relation  to a Hatfield . Thomas Wesley Blankenship (1855-1930 ) married Nacy Jane Collins (1866-1918). Nancy Jeans father was William Collins (1806-1896) from Russel County , Va. In his second marriage he married Mary Ann " Molly " Hatfield of , and in , Logan County , West Virginia in 11/25/1860. She was the daughter of Joseph and Nancy (Evans) Hatfield . Reason I posted information , is I've found in my W.V. research , due to physical terrain , family's staied in general area's and you find where pair's of sibling's married other Sibling pairs. ....or the cousin of . I doubt this is a lead or help but you never know . Good luck in your search . Regards , Robert.
