Re: Research trip: Halifax County, NC

Greetings to Kim, Denise and Irita,
thanks for the kind words of encouragement. These are the documents I located at the courthouse:
Death certificates for: my paternal grandmother, 2 of my grandfathers brothers and one of my father's older brothers
Marriage certificate for : my grandparents (this was very helpful because since my grandfather had changed his name as a young man, it gave the window in which the name change occured. At his 1906 marriage, he was still going by his original name of PONTON; at the 1910 census, he was listed as ROUNDTREE)
I found my great-grandparents in the Halifax County Marriage Register Book #2 (1872-Dec 1894); I also found my great-grandmother's younger brother and sister's marriages listed as well. Unfortunately, parents names weren't included;just names/residence, ages, color, name/title of minister,place of marriage, date, names of witnesses
