Congratulations on your trip to Halifax County. I'm glad you were able to find most of the things went there for.
I notice that you mention you are researching the name of HAWKINS. Are they from Halifax County, too? I have HAWKINS ancestors from Halifax County, and wonder if we may have some names in common. Most of them were from Brinkleyville Township, but I also have some from Enfield and Faucett Townships in Halfax County. Are any of yours from those areas, that you know of?
