History of Petersburg, WV

Posted: 26 Feb 2010 12:02PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Allison, Franklin, Walters
I have an ancestor whose grave lists him as born in Petersburg, WV in 1825. I realize that WV was not a state at this time, but I am having difficulty figuring out what VA county this area was associated with in 1825. I have found references to the fact that Petersburg was not allowed to operate under that name, because there was already a Petersburg, VA. So probably went by the name of Looney's Creek, AKA Luney's Creek, or even Lunice Creek.

GGGgrandfather James Allison, born 1825. I have some parents listed that I got from other family researchers, but would like to confirm that these are correct. Need the VA county for this area.
