Hatfield-McCoy Love Match
This feud wouldn’t be complete without a tragic love story. Randall McCoy’s daughter, Roseanna, fell in love with Devil Anse Hatfield’s son, Johnse, at an Election Day event in 1881. Soon after, Roseanna became pregnant with Johnse’s child. But Johnse didn’t stick around for long. Roseanna’s baby died of measles at 8 months; 6 months later Johnse married Roseanna’s first cousin. Roseanna died several years later -- no one knows of what -- but some say she died of a broken heart. Here, a shot of the baby's gravesite in Pike County, KY.
