Hatfield–McCoy feud site along the Tug Fork

The Hatfield and McCoy feud involved two families of the West Virginia – Kentucky area along the Tug Fork of the Big Sandy River, between 1863 and 1891. The Hatfields of West Virginia were led by William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield while the McCoys of Kentucky were led by Randolph "Ole Ran'l" McCoy.



The Appalachia Project can assist with actions requiring a project leader, such as profiles that need project protection or project management. (The Hatfield and McCoy Project was a subproject of the now-dissolved Black Sheep Project.)

Mission: The purpose of this project is to highlight the profiles, prevent duplicates, write accurate biographies of those people who were involved in the Hatfield and McCoy family feud.


  1. Add profiles for members of the Hatfield and McCoy families by checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
  3. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
  4. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  6. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.


Contact the Appalachia Project if you have a profile that needs to be protected or managed by a project.

A sticker is being developed (need an appropriate image - contact Liz if you have a suggestion).
