The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895:
The preoccupation of the United States leading up to and through the War of 1812 was reflected in an absence of county formation until 1814. In that year, Scott was formed from Lee, Russell, and Washington in the upper Ridge and Valley area, and Tyler was taken from Ohio on the northwestern margin of Virginia.
Further division occurred on the Appalachian Plateau with the creation of Lewis from Harrison in 1816, and in 1818 the forming of Preston from Monongalia and Nicholas from Greenbrier, Kanawha, and Randolph. And in 1820 Berkeley and Harrison provided lands to make Morgan.
