Devil_Anse_Hatfield’s Biography

Hatfield was born in Logan, Virginia (now West Virginia). His parents were Ephraim Hatfield, of English descent, and Nancy Vance, of Irish descent, who was baptized on September 23, 1911 on Island Creek. He joined a congregation of the Church of Christ in West Virginia, and dedicated himself to the lumber industry with which he earned significant income for his extended family.

There are several versions of the origin of his pseudonym “Devil Anse”. Some attribute it to his mother or to Randolph McCoy, others to that he won for his bravery during the Civil War or the contrast with the calmer personality of his cousin Anderson «Preacher Anse» Hatfield.

He married Levisa «Levicy» Chafin (December 20, 1842 – March 15, 1929), daughter of Nathaniel Chafin and Matilda Varney, on April 18, 1861 in Logan County. His thirteen children were:

  • Johnson «Johnse» Hatfield (1862 – 1939)
  • William Anderson «Cap» Hatfield (1864 – 1930)
  • Robert E. Lee Hatfield (1866 – 1931)
  • Nancy Hatfield (1869 -?)
  • Elliott Rutherford Hatfield (1872 – 1932)
  • Mary Hatfield Hensley Simpkins Howes (1874 – 1963)
  • Elizabeth «Betty» Hatfield Caldwell (1876 – 1962)
  • Elias M. Hatfield (1878 – 1911)
  • Detroit W. «Troy» Hatfield (1881 – 1911)
  • Joseph Davis Hatfield (1883 – 1963)
  • Rose Lee «Rosie» Hatfield Browning (1885 – 1965)
  • Emmanuel Wilson «Willis» Hatfield (1888 – 1978)
  • Tennyson Samuel «Tennis» Hatfield (1890 – 1953)

As a sympathizer of the southern cause, Hatfield Nahson formed a Confederate guerrilla unit during the civil war that was known as the “Logan Wildcats.” In 1865 he was considered suspected of being involved in the murder of his rival Asa Harmon McCoy, who fought in the Union Army and was ambushed by the Wildcats on his return home. Hatfield was convalescing due to illness at the time of the crime, which would have been committed by his uncle Jim Vance, although he was never determined by justice. This was the first episode that unleashed the confrontation between both families and that lasted for decades, causing several deaths.

Hatfield died on Thursday, January 6, 1921 in Stirrat, Logan County, West Virginia, at 81 years of pneumonia in his home near Island Creek, West Virginia. He is buried in the Hatfield family cemetery on Route 44 in Logan County. His life-size statue, made of Italian marble, was placed on his grave. «Levicy» survived her husband for eight years.
