Mappy Monday - Halifax, North Carolina

In yesterday's post on my early Tennessee ancestor, James Tucker, his Revolutionary War pension file mentioned his birth place as Halifax County, North Carolina in 1759. Halifax is a town located on the Roanoke River, not far from the northern border of the state with Virginia.

Below is a portion of the map from Thomas Jeffries' 1776 map of North and South Carolina, showing the area of Edgecombe and Halifax Counties.
