History

Parent County

1776--Monongalia County was created 7 October 1776 from the District of West Augusta.
County seat: Morgantown[1]

Boundary Changes

Monongalia County has been called "mother of counties" because many originated as part of it.  The first set off was Harrison County, in 1784.  See a table of West Virginia County formation histories, or an interactive map of Monongalia County boundary changes.

Record Loss

The Monongalia County Court Clerk's outbuilding, containing deeds, tax assessment rolls, Court records and marriage records, was burned in 1796.  Some records are retrievable elsewhere (see below).

  • Locate publications about direct ancestors
  • Find the most updated accounts of an ancestor's family

Land

Monongalia County Deeds were destroyed in a fire in the County Clerk's outbuilding in 1796. Many of the destroyed instruments were re-recorded in the now extant County Deeds (Old Series) and in the Monongalia County District Court Deeds. The latter series included mainly transactions conducted by out-of-County and out-of-State residents. As in most such records, many of the post-1796 deeds recited a chain of title.


Titles to Monongalia County lands were initially conveyed by the Commonwealth of Virginia mainly in right of settlement, although some speculators bought land warrants (rights to survey and claim grants to specific tracts) and resold them. No Monongalia County lands were granted pursuant to Revolutionary War Bounty Land Warrants. The Land Office's copies of all land grants issued by VA up to 1862 are available on the internet at the Library of Virginia (go to "Land Office Patents and Grants/Northern Neck Grants and Surveys" link to search). The County Clerk retains transcripts of the original land surveys, as well as original Land Entry Books (available on microfilm at FHL). The titles in right of settlement were allocated by a Commission for Adjusting Claims to Unpatented Lands 1773-1785; its minutes are retained by the County Clerk, and available on microfilm at FHL and in the West Virginia State Archives, Charleston. Extracts of the proceedings were published by Earl L. Core, The Monongalia Story: a Bicentennial History (see Local History section of this page), mainly in Vol. 2.
