Geocache Description:

Pharmer McCoy (1863 - 1882)

Pharmer McCoy, 19, was found dead in Buskirk, Kentucky across the river from Matewan West Virginia. Pharmer McCoy was the son of Randolph McCoy who is leader of the McCoy clan in what has come to be known as the Hatfield McCoy Feud.

Pharmer was killed in retribution for the murder of Hatfield clan leader Devil Anse Hatfield’s brother Ellison. Pharmer and his brothers Tolbert and Bud were tied to a stand of Paw Paw trees and executed by a group of Hatfield loyalists. One witness said Pharmer had one bullet wound in the head and ten in his body.

Pharmer is survived by his parents Randolph McCoy and Sarah Elizabeth McCoy and his brothers and sisters – Roseanna, Calvin, Alifair, James, Samuel,William,Trinvilla, Adlade, Fannie and Floyd.

A small graveside ceremony will be held on the family’s land across from his parent’s home.
