Our first stop was to visit Middle Creek Battlefield just west of
(Just a side note to those out there who enjoy ghost hunting: With any investigation, you need to show a considerable amount of reverence of certain locations when investigating. A battlefield, a church, historically significant site or a cemetery would be a place that deserves added respect while investigating. Any location deserves respect, but when on such sacred ground, the amount of respect toward these areas should be top priority to help protect and preserve the history of these sites.)
After leaving the battlefield we headed on to Pikeville. I have never been in Pikeville long enough to explore much, and although we didn’t stay too long we decided to explore two of Kentucky and West Virginia’s most famous families: The Hatfield’s & McCoy’s.
The areas in which both families are from, my ancestors are from also. I have no direct ties to the Hatfield’s or McCoy’s, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the name Hatfield in particular from my older family members who grew up in Pike County Kentucky and surrounding areas.
One awesome trip and a number of potentially haunted places were abundant in South Eastern Kentucky and
