Geocache Description:

Alifair McCoy (1857 - 1888)

The body of Alifair McCoy was discovered frozen in the snow beside the family well today. She was murdered during a raid by several Hatfield men on New Year’s Day.

The Hatfields set the McCoy cabin on fire and Alifair went to get water to put it out. She was shot in the attempt.

Miss McCoy was the daughter of Feud leader Randolph McCoy.

Also killed during the raid was her brother Calvin.

Alifair was preceded in death by her brothers Tolbert, Pharmer and Bud who were also killed as a result of the feud between the Hatfield and McCoy families.

Surviving Alifair are her parents Randolph McCoy and Sarah McCoy and her siblings Roseanna, James, Samuel, William, Trinvilla, Adlade, Fannie and Floyd.

She will be buried beside her three brothers on a small family plot near the now destroyed home.
