Note: The young children in this household are Sally Fannie Green and Martha Sue Green; these are children of William Green and Susan H. Gravitt who do no appear in the Halifax Census for 1860; this census shows Sally Fannie was born in North Carolina.
      Early Census Records for this area are often seen as Caswell and or Halifax North Carolina. The proximity of the State Line makes looking for the actual records an extended process.
