Prior to the 2003 reunion; Patricia Westfield, Faye Dirton, Violita Dirton and myself-Sabrina Sewell took a trip to SC Archives located in Columbia, South Carolina.  The objective of the visit was to see if we could expand our knowledge of the Dirton family history.  This is where we gathered much of the information listed above.

We will continue to gather, organize, validate and post information as we receive it.  If you have additional information to share, please contact us.
