Berry's Ferry Reference

I have an electronic copy of the text of a letter written by
Mary (HAMPTON) BERRY to her daughter Rebecca in 1812.

Mary BERRY gives the address as "Berry's Ferry or Landing",
Union County, Virginia.

I know that Mary and Francis BERRY lived at Berry's Ferry in
what is now call Clarke Co. Does anyone know if this area was
called UNION County for awhile before Clarke was created?
[I do know that the area is part of the original Frederick County.]

Thanks for the help in clearing up my mysterious county name
reference in advance.
