Inscription.  With roots extending back years, this famous family feud erupted fully after an 1882 election day brawl in Pike County, Kentucky, between 3 sons of Randolph McCoy and Ellison Hatfield, brother of "Devil Anse.” After Ellison died, the McCoys were tied to bushes and killed. The feud continued for 6 years across the Tug River and brought untold deaths.
