Mercer County Virginia
Mercer County's settlement began in the mid 1770s, but it was not formed until 1837 from portions of Giles and Tazewell counties. Like its predecessor of the same name in Kentucky, the county was named in honor of General Hugh Mercer, of Fredericksburg, who was killed at the Battle of Princeton, New Jersey, during the American Revolution. Summers County took a parcel of Mercer land in 1871.
