Did the Dalton Brothers gang ever rob banks in South Carolina?


? ? ?

Dear FB,

The Bob and Emmett Dalton, forming the gang with at least two cohorts, started out by robbing a gambling house in Silver City, New Mexico, and with further combinations of brothers and non-relatives went on to rob numerous banks and trains from California to Kansas. The is no evidence, however, of them ever operating east of the Mississippi.
