I really didn't get into the mini series, but when I was watching it for a few minutes last night they were showing them going to church and I think it said on the front of the church... church of Christ.

Were the Hatfield and McCoys members of "The Church"

would make sense as much as they were fighting and killing each other.

I had it on but wasn't really watching it, just half way listening. I heard them singing Are You Washed in the Blood

a quick internet search shows Hatfield to have been baptized by a CofC preacher. The preacher name is D y k e, but our site here thinks that is nasty so I have tweaked the text below with a double yy (pun intended)

...Devil Anse Hatfield lived many years after the feud. He was baptized by his old friend, preacher ‘‘Uncle Dyyke’’ Garrett,

Quote:
Clergyman William Dyyke ‘‘Uncle Dyyke’’ Garrett (December 10, 1841-May 29, 1938) was Logan County’s most famous preacher for the Church of Christ. He was born on Big Creek, the son of John and Eliza Godby Garrett. He enlisted on the side of the Confederacy in the Logan Wildcats (Company D 36th Virginia Infantry) at the start of the Civil War but was made the company’s informal chaplain when it was found he was deaf in one ear. He deplored the war, denouncing it as against God’s will, having evidently come to that conclusion after witnessing the execution of Southern deserters. Previously unordained, Garrett began thinking seriously about Christianity after the war and was converted by Alexander M. Lunsford, who preached in Mingo and Logan counties. Garrett became a circuit rider, preaching throughout Logan County the rest of his life. He was the inspiration for the construction of the Crooked Creek Church of Christ and helped establish a sister church in Logan Courthouse, now Logan.

Garrett married Sallie Smith in 1867, and he and ‘‘Aunt Sallie’’ remained married for 71 years. He was a friend of feudist Anderson ‘‘Devil Anse’’ Hatfield from at least the late 1860s onward, and his greatest fame was for converting Hatfield and baptizing him in Main Island Creek in October 1911. Devil Anse and d**e Garrett were members of Camp Straton United Confederate Veterans, the social organization that controlled Logan County politics between 1870 and 1915, with Garrett serving as the group’s spiritual leader. Beloved as the ‘‘Good Shepherd of the Hills,’’ Garrett was a fiddler who danced to his own music, and he had a fine tenor voice.

I watched Part 1 last night. I *think* the sign on the church (which showed up within the first ten minutes) was Tug Creek Church of Christ. My husband looked at me and said "well, THAT explains a lot". Embarassed

this may help explain why campbell's vision became so distorted.....the hillbilly* clans took the cofc dogma and made it their own.....resulting in what it we have today. Laughing

maybe this should be our new ex-cofc site avatar:



* not that there's anything wrong with hillbillies. just sayin.

In honor of Richard Dawson.

Sorry BH I find it humorous that the poster edited out Carter's speech to the nation concerning the hostages. In 1979 those blank VHS tapes were not cheap.

This is so randomly weird I looked at this post but I'm from WV so I'm obsessed with anything about my little state. My current pastor is ex COC too and his great uncle is the Garrett who baptized Devil Anse Hatfield.

Yes, the whole feud was about what brand of grape juice to use for the Lord's supper.
