Raymond,

That was a very helpful and much needed correction of the several errors in Lee's post .... except that Greensville Co was formed from Brunswick Co, not Lunenburg Co, which was never contiguous with the future Greensville Co. Lunenburg is roughly to the west of Brunswick, while Greensville is to Brunswick's east.

All readers are recommended to the 1790 map, which is stlll current I believe for this part of Virginia, at

and the interactive map showing VA county formations at
