Barbour County Virginia

Map of Va: Barbour CountyBarbour County was formed in 1843 from parts of Harrison, Lewis, and Randolph counties. It probably was named either for Philip Pendleton Barbour, a distinguished Virginia jurist, or for James Barbour, governor of Virginia from 1812 to 1814. In 1841 Taylor County was given a part of its territory, and in 1851 another parcel was cut off to form the northern part of Upshur County. The county was first settled circa 1780 in the environs of Philippi, its county seat.
