Dalton Myths

This website is devoted to generally cited "facts" about the Daltons of Southside Virginia that remain "facts" despite evidence. Not all of these myths can be proven wrong, but in all cases the preponderance of the latest evidence indicates an alternative explanation.  Of course, evidence is often discovered after the myths were originally formed that lead us to correct the myth.

When examining these pages remember that names such as David, James, John, Robert, and Timothy were common among Dalton families in the American South. This page is restricted to Daltons who lived in Southside Virginia.
