Biography:
J.D. Charles writes: "Cap Hatfield, looms large over the entire [Hatfield-McCoy feud]. [He] was often portrayed as a lawless murderer; but the authors [of the book 'The Tale of the Devil'] show him to have been a man who seemed to resent being used as a Lieutenant by his father, and a man who sought peace later in life - first by farming, then by studying to be an attorney, and finally becoming a security guard. One of Cap's last scrapes was a shooting incident on an Election Day that was clearly self defense." Cap is buried in the Cap Hatfield Cemetery in Stirrat, Logan County, West Virginia.
