The following was taken from the Sep. 27, 1977 edition of THE ROBESONIAN:


The family of the later Mr. and Mrs. Peter Dial, Sr. of Robeson County will have a family reunion Sunday October 2 at the home of a grandson and his family, Mrs. and Mrs. George Dial of Chavis Street.

Dinner will be served about 1 p.m. All relatives are invited to attend and bring a covered dish.

The children of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Dial were Mrs. John (Polly) Deese, Mrs. Tom (Susie) Deese, Mrs. Hughie (Dorcas) Brayboy, Mrs. Frank (Jane) Jacobs, Mrs. Clarence (Roxie) Sanderson, Mrs. Bemus (Maggie) Blue, Mrs. Coldon (Mary) Brooks, Joe Dial, Pete Dial Jr., Plummer Dial, and Bunk Dial.

  • **NOTE: In THE ROBESONIAN article announcing the family reunion, Mrs. Arthur (Lucinda) Harding was omitted as a child of Peter Dial. Also, Peter Dial, Sr., was listed as Pete, Jr., but he was also referred to as Peter, Sr. (see his THE ROBESONIAN obituary on his memorial page).
    • *NOTE: His death date was Mar. 16, 1931 according to his NC death certificate.
