Pittsylvania County was created in 1767 from Halifax County, VA. It was a important migration path for early settlers moving into Tennessee, Georgia and North & South Carolina. Deeds are GREAT source for genealogical research due to the many and varied family members that are mentioned. Not only will the reader find the deed transaction itself, but often times such things as: marriages, relinquishment of dower, divisions of family farms among heirs, remarriages of widows are just a few of the matters you can anticipate finding within records of deeds.
