But they lived pretty close to each other....
A border stream called the Tug Fork separated the two families; the McCoys lived on the Kentucky side of the stream and the Hatfields on the West Virginia side.
There is some disagreement over what started the whole thing; some accounts trace the families' troubles to the American Civil War and other accounts tell of a stolen pig. Whatever the reason, the feud escalated when Johnse Hatfield impregnated Roseanna McCoy and refused to marry her.
The feud was a bloody one with both clans suffering losses during the 1880's and 1890's.
