Washington County, Virginia – INFO

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/gowenms158.htm

WASHINGTON COUNTY, VIRGINIA

Washington County was organized in 1776-77 with land taken from Montgomery County and Fincastle County.
==O==
On December 9, 1785, 307 men of Washington County signed a petition addressed to the Virginia House of Burgesses reqesting the formation of a new county from the western area of Washington County. The petition suggested a line be “fixed along Clinch Mountain and Montgomery line to the Carolina line” to separate them from Washington County. These inhabitants include those in settlements of Clinch River, Mocason Creek, Powells Valley, north branch of Holstein River, and “others.” Russell County, Virginia was created in that year. No Gowens [or spelling variations] appeared on the petition.

The list of petitioners, transcribed by Rhonda S. Robertson was published in “The Southwest Virginian,” Vol. 1, No. 3 in Wise, Virginia:
