Ohio County Virginia
Ohio County was established in 1776 from the western lands of the District of West Augusta. The county derived its name from the Indian name for the river which meant "great river" in their language. The first known settlers had arrived just a few years before, in 1769, at present-day Wheeling. In 1785, upon settlement of the western boundary of Pennsylvania, the remainder of Yohogania County not ceded to Pennsylvania were added to Ohio County. Brooke County was formed from Ohio in 1797 and Tyler was established in 1814. With the creation of Marshall County in 1836, further cessions from Ohio County came to an end.
