DORTON'S FORT
KA-13 (2/10/04)
William Dorton Sr and his family settled near here in 1773
and built a fort, one of several defensive structures built
by settlers of European descent on the Virginia frontier.
Dorton's sons William Jr,
Moses, and Edward fought
in the Revolutionary War. Edward and at least one of the
two other brothers served at the Battle of King's Mountain
on 7 October 1780. During this period, conflicts occurred
between early settlers and Native Americans in this region,
resulting in the death of a fourth son, name unknown,
in 1777. Capt. William Dorton Jr served in the
Washington and Russell County militias and died in 1826.
He is buried just southwest of here.
