Re: Research trip: Halifax County, NC

Hey, maybe we are related. My 3rd gr-grandmother was Frances Hawkins, who married Ben Copeland sometime around 1840 in Halifax County. It's hard to tell exactly where in Halifax at that time, since the 1850 Census didn't give townships, but later records show that her father and siblings lived in Brinkleyville, but moved to Faucetts. Here is one siblings records:

Father: William Hilliard HAWKINS b: Nov 1833 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Mother: Mary E. HULIN b: 1842 in Halifax County,North Carolina

Marriage 1 Rebecca b: Aug 1869 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Married: 1884 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Children
Estee HAWKINS b: Aug 1886 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Lora HAWKINS b: Jun 1888 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Grace HAWKINS b: Jan 1892 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Blaine HAWKINS b: Jun 1893 in Halifax County,North Carolina
Arthur HAWKINS
Dalia HAWKINS
