Monroe County Virginia
Monroe County was formed in 1799 from the southern land of Greenbrier County. It honored James Monroe, fifth president of the United States. It was one of the first-settled portions of Greenbrier, with the first settlers arriving circa 1760. In 1802 part of Botetourt was added to Monroe. The formation of Giles (1806) and Alleghany (1821) counties took further land from Monroe. In 1827 that portion of Monroe County along Muddy Creek was added to Greenbrier and the Giles-Monroe line was fixed that same year. Further portions of Monroe were added to Giles (1829), Alleghany (1843), Craig (1851 & 1856).

MONROE CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 25 pages, illustrations, maps, index. This is the first surviving census for Monroe, since both the 1790 and 1800. The census can serve double duty, since Monroe was created out of the southern portion of Greenbrier, and that 1810 census is missing or destroyed also.
