DAMRONS, MAYNARDS, HATFILEDS, MC COYS, (ANY SPELLINGS)

DAMRONS, MAYNARDS, HATFILEDS, MC COYS, (ANY SPELLINGS)

My great grandfather, THOMPSON MAYNARD, and his brother, JACOB MAYNARD, of Wayne, Co. W VA both married DAMRONS, POLLY ANN AND ELIZABETH, but the girls were NOT sisters.

I need help in a couple of questions.

What family is represented by the famous PGA golfer named DAMRON from Pikeville, KY?

Who in Hell's Holler is "OCK" DAMRON?

Is "OCK" shorthand for another name?

He's pictured in several famous pictures of the HATFILED family, and I know he worked for "DEVIL ANSE" HATFIELD, but almost nothing else.

My guess is that "OCK DAMRON" was also involved in the shooting part of the famous feud with the Mc COYS.

I've seen his name listed as EXER DAMRON AND OKER DAMRON, and I'm pretty sure all three names are the same person, but I'd love to validate that fact.

Were there any other DAMRONS involved in the feud?

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

Doug Maynard

OCK = Auxier Damron...You can look him up on the Web.

My mom told me the Damrons were on the Hatfield

side. At least one was!

Thanks, Donna, for the "OCK" Dameron info.

Great help.

I see his pictures all the time with the Hatfields.

He's described as working for the Hatfields. I just wondered if there were any relation to the family?

I discovered there were MAYNARDS on both sides of the feud.

Wonder if the same were true for the Damerons?

I have a lot of names of families of the feud, and I"m trying to determine how they might be connected.

Ock Damron was my great grandfather and he was from Pike County, KY. He was a hired hand of Devil Anse Hatfield.

THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.

DO YOU KNOW IF THERE WERE ANY DAMRONS ON THE MC COY SIDE OF THE FUED?

ALSO WAS OCK RELATED IN ANY WAY TO EITHER SIDE OR WAS HE SIMPLY A HIRED HAND FOR DEVIL ANSE?

ALSO DO YOU KNOW IF HE WAS IN ANY WAY RELATED TO ANY MAYNARDS AT THAT TIME?

THANKS AGAIN,

DOUG MAYNARD

My grandfather nor my father ever mentioned relatives on the McCoy side and I'm not aware of any connection to a Maynard family.

According to their stories, Ock was just a hired hand and was never involved with the Hatfield violent antics. When I was a teenager, I recall my papaw, mamaw and my dad sharing many of the stories I'm sure you've read regarding aspects of the Hatfield/McCoy feud. I'm fairly confident they would have shared something had he been directly involved with the feud but alas, one never knows. It's possible.

There is a Hatfield/McCoy festival in Pikeville, KY. I've never attended but you could contact the Chamber of Commerce and they'll provide you with details.

By the way I know who has Ock's gun, the one in the photos, but I can't get them to sell it.

Good luck,

Doug,
Hi, I just saw your question about who the PGA golfer named Damron in Pike County, Ky. My mom's brother was a PGA golfer and he is origianlly from Pike County but he hasn't played for a while because he hurt his back. His name is Arnold Edwin Damron. Are you connected to the Damrons in my family? Hope this helps.
