The southern district outpopulating the northern district doesn't surprise me too much based on what a researcher told me a long time ago. The state of Virginia is responsible for populating much of North Carolina in the early years of this country with southerly migrations but Halifax Co., VA. always seemed to be the exception according to the resarcher I mentioned. He seemed to think that there was a good deal of populating Halifax Co. from the south (Orange,Caswell, Granville, and Person Cos., NC.)
If that was the case, and with the Dan River being the obstacle that it was, it might be that these Carolinians
migrating northward just stayed in the area known to us as the southern district; causing the population to be greater
in the southern district. Food for thought, anyway.
