There's already a Dicey Langston website with extensive material, but none of the (few) original documents. The 1998 abridged version of Ellett does not include her section on Dicey Langston, and I haven't run across a copy of it yet. Lossing contains one brief episode from her adventures, presumably from Ellett. There are a couple of pages about her in Chapman's 1898 School History. Chapman includes a paragraph about an Emily-like courier job done by Anne Kennedy of Union County. Other SC heroines in the abridged version of Ellett include Martha Bretton, Mrs. Dillard, Isabella Barber Ferguson, Nancy Stinson (Anderson) Green, Mrs. Thomas Heyward, Sarah Wayne McCalla, Mrs. Richard Shubrick, Mrs. John Simpson, Mrs. Strong, Esther Gaston Walker, Eliza Yonge Wilkinson, and Eleanor Wilson. Lossing mentions a few other names (including the ubiquitous Mrs. Rebecca Motte, who doesn't seem to have actually done anything), and I think I recall a few others somewhere in the un-indexed copy of Johnson.
