I have jsut returned from that area of Virginia where i was searching for my "Allen" family. I did not run accross teh anme Fayette but I was not not searching for that particular name. I know there is a geneology society in Halifax because I signed up at the court house to receive information from them. Did you know that Halifax County was at one time part of Pittsylvania county Virginia? There may be infroamiton there. The County Seat is Chatam, Virginia. You might also check out Charolette County Charolette being the County seat. I believe it alos was once part of the area under one county before they split into three different counties.
