Jesse James Gang - Shiloh Bank Robbery SC.
Posted by: Anne Brumbles Date: September 16, 2001 at 03:02:18
  of 150

I am from Dillon County SC. I have been told by many older
citizens here that the Jesse James Gang robbed a bank at
Shiloh in Florence County in the late 1800's.
3 of them went so far as to tell me that there was a picture
of the James Gang in that bank at one time.
First of all, is there such a place as Shiloh in Florence
County, or is it in Marion County?
Also, there are many of the James' surname in Marion County
SC. Is this just coincidence or did Jesse and his gang actually come through here & sire children?
I have also been told that a Marion County(now Dillon Co)
man was a part of the James Gang.
I have tried to find firm confirmation of this, but have
been unable to so far.
Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.
