Iberian Publishing Company's On-Line Catalog:
Marion County Virginia


Map of Va: Marion CountyThe earliest settlers in this region began to arrive shortly after the end of the French and Indian War (1763), but it was not until 1842 that Marion County was formally created from the southern territory of Monongalia County and the northern part of Harrison County. The county was named for Francis Marion, the famous "Swamp Fox" of Revolutionary War renown. The Tyler-Marion boundary was redefined in 1843, and in 1844 a part of Marion County was cut off to form Taylor County. In 1847 the watershed of Buffalo Creek was shifted from Monongalia County to Marion County, and in 1856 a part of Marion was transferred to Taylor County.
