1. Sally McCoy Side of Marker
Inscription.  Sarah Elizabeth (Sally) McCoy was the daughter of Rosanna McCoy and Johnse Hatfield. Her parents’ love affair played a role in the infamous Hatfield-McCoy feud. Although circumstances prohibited the two from marrying, the child was born in 1881 and lived with her mother and Aunt Betty McCoy.

Sally McCoy contracted measles and pneumonia, and died a few months after her birth. The death of Rosanna McCoy’s only child, Sally, was a contributing factor in the grief and sorrow that led to the untimely death of Roseanna. Sally was laid to rest in the cemetery at top of hill. Grave is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
