Geocache Description:

Here on this ground, "Devil Anse Hatfield" lived during the most intense period of the Hatfield McCoy Feud. He acquired the land around 1872 from a legal dispute with Perry Cline.

Anse then moved into the Cline family cabin which was located across from where Peter Creek empties into the Tug River.

Hatfield and Cline were involved in a complicated series of legal disputes over this land and several other tracts. It is propbable that this contributed to the ill will between the two. During the later stages of the feud, Perry Cline was allegedly one of the driving forces behind efforts to arrest the Hatfields.

Anse left this land in 1888, not long after the nearby Battle of Grapevine Creek. That battle was the last skirmish in the feud.

Anse moved to Sarah Ann, WV where he and his wife are now buried on a mountainside.
