|McCoy House - Pikeville, Ky.|
During the New Year's Night Massacre in 1888, the Hatfields rode to and torched the McCoy home on Blackberry Creek. Two of the McCoy children were injured, but the McCoy patriarch (Randolph, aka Randall) and his wife Sarah (aka Sally) escaped.

Sally died first, date unknown. Randall lived until 1914 and both are buried in Pikeville's Dils Cemetery along with other members of the McCoy family.
Pikeville's and Pike County's Hatfield-McCoy history lives with a number of other sites and markers; it is well worth the trek into history.
