RE: Hatfields' & McCoys
My husband is descended from William McCoy who was a brother of Randall who was the head of the McCoy clan at the time "Devil Anse" was head of the Hatfields. I would like to make a trip back to Pike County during the reunion sometime, but don't know if it will ever happen.

RE: Hope you're doing well, Allison
Hi Sharon, you beat me by minutes! I went into hospital on 9/27 and was admitted into sub acute rehab on 10/2. It has been a horrible few months but now I am in a great center getting 3hrs a day of OT PT. it's very hard work but for the first time In years I feel hopeful. They asked my goal my first day and I said,"to walk out the door unassisted." It will be a long road but I am blessed to have the opportunity and I'm up for the fight. I made a patrial round of visits today for the first time in months. Monday I have my first progress meeting. I'll keep you informed. Love, Allison

RE: Cemetery relocation
I'd be happy to send it to you if you provide your email.

My last name is Frederick. The "McClung" cemetery was also known as the Old O'Haver/Frederick cemetery or it was immediately adjacent to it (difficult to tell from the document). On the Indiana SHAARD site and the document it lists it as McClung but notes the family names are O'Haver and Frederick.

Supposedly, my GGGG grandfather and family were buried there as the property belonged to him (Andrew Frederick Sr). I also have that document from the 1830's. It is the exact same plat survey. The Frederick's., Purcell's and O'Haver's, (and possibly Bedwell's), intermarried and are all immediate neighbors on various census. I also have family ties to the Bogard's and Pesch's in the area. My grandfather (Robert), g-grandfather (Rayford), and gg-grandfather (Bert) are buried in the IOOF cemetery just down the road. My grandmother lives in Merom Station.

Apparently the Mt. Moriah cemetery is still somewhat active and maintained but there is zero contact info that I can find. I'd love to have an email address for whoever runs that cemetery.

Cemetery relocation
I don't know where to begin on this (possibly) odd request. I noticed you are a contributor to the Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Dugger. Perhaps you (or someone you know) can help me. There was a cemetery just down the road (O'Haver/Frederick/McClung) that had burials and stones relocated to this cemetery in 1992, at the request of Peabody Coal Co..

According to the court document I have, they agreed to reinter the bodies, relocate any found headstones and erect an additional marker commemorating the "McClung Cemetery" reinterment and containing the names of those reintered. Has anyone seen this? I wondering how well it was carried out and could use the information (and pictures if possible) as I am a direct descendant of many of the people buried in the original cemetery.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

Dear Sharon, as with Traci, it's hard to believe but Alex is gone 17 yrs. We both know it never gets any easier. My son John will be 25 on the 20th. My boys were best friends and though John was only 7 when Alex died, he still misses him and all that could have been. I'll spare you details of my ex husband. He was never there during Alex's ordeal or after. Suffice to say before the show ever came out, I always said I am happily divorced. I wait for the day no other child has to endure what they did and no other Moms are us. With love, Allison

RE: Your health
Hi Sharon, Thankyou for thinking of me. CRPS is a disorder where the pain signal of the brain (meant to protect you from continuing an action that is harmful),doesn't turn off and spreads. It doesn't respond to even opiates. Drs know little about it. (What else is new.) I've had a very rough few months. After what I saw on the ped cancer ward and knowing what Traci and Alex endured, it's hard to feel sorry for myself. I cope. I'm on site the days I can and ofcourse I will always visit Traci. I'm 5yrs older than she and I remember the era we grew up in well. She should be here now, so should Alex (he'd be 22). Oh how I wish they were! Bless you. Hugs, Allison

RE: Your request of pictures for mems
Thank you,
If at any point you do wont pictures just let me know.
I have other people in here taking my stuff as they can find time to replace it.
P.R.T is working very hard on trying to fix some of Laurel County's mess as well as others.
My first batch of picture's in here are going to the 3 Historical Buildings here in Laurel County by the end of May.
I am in hopes that this will correct some of the undone Cemetery lists floating around out there
You have very nice day and if you see any thing I need to fix or look please let me know.

Henry Smith Cemetery
Hi Sharon,

Thanks for your reply! Okay, I will just leave it. I know what happened one was named Clifford C and it was his military tombstone. The other was under Charles his middle name no Clifford and it was the tombstone with he and his wife.

So I will just leave as is because to delete one the new rule is I would have to transfer back to you and you have to delete. Find a grave started this because people were deleting the orginals and starting over taking the full credit.

I don't understand why their always has to be a few cheaters to ruin and make things harder for everyone else.

Thanks, Sharon
