Dabney family members from around South Carolina met recently to preview a book, The Dabneys of South Carolina, to be published in early 2014.
John Edward Dabney, a Rock Hill native who lives in New Jersey, and his cousin, Joseph Earl Dabney, a Kershaw native who lives in Atlanta, are co-authors.
The book is filled with information and photos of the descendants of the Alexander Dabney clan of South Carolina. In addition to a photo gallery, many of the chapters chronicle the Civil War Dabneys, as well as life in the early mill villages.
The book will present the Dabney family tree, beginning in 1795.
