An act adopted by the General Assembly of Virginia on March 3, 1843 created Barbour County named in memory of Philip Pendleton Barbour. Some however, say the honor of the name goes for James Barbour, Governor of Virginia 1812-1815, but the act stated that it was named in honor of Philip Pendleton Barbour, statesman. The biographical section of this material was submitted by the families themselves, therefore, the information should be more correct than some other sources.

 

Example

“Simon House - born in Barbour county November 7, 1830, was a son of Abram and Sarah (Simons) House. His father was one among the earliest of the settlers in this vicinity, coming to what is now Barbour county in 1813. In Upshur county, [now West Virginia] in 1852, Simon House was united in marriage with Reuhamy Cool, who was born in Barbour county in 1832. ...etc...”
