Summary
  • Halifax County (Va.) Sheriff's Fee and Account Book, 1846-1847, is a manuscript volume recording various lists of fees and fines that were the responsibility of the county's sheriff to collect. Examples include fees due the commissioner of revenue, clerks of court of Halifax and other counties, militia muster fines, and so forth.

The articles mostly concern religious topics or poetry along with some published lists of Civil War dead. The scrapbook may have been assembled by a Miss Kate H. Easley whose name is written in pencil on one of the pages. The 1860 census shows a Cate H. Easley, aged 9, living in Halifax County with her father James S. Easley, a merchant
