Lewis County [W.] Virginia


Map of Va: Lewis CountyLewis County was established in 1816 from Harrison County; however, the area of the new county had first been settled shortly after the Revolutionary War during the westward movement into the Alleghanies. The new county was named in honor of Charles Lewis, a frontier leader killed in the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774. In 1818 a small part of Randolph County was added to Lewis. Braxton County was formed in 1836 from the southern portion of Lewis, and in 1843 and 1845 addition portions were taken to form parts of several counties: Barbour and Ritchie (1843), Doddridge and Gilmer (1845). In 1851 still further land was taken to form Upshur County.
