Note:  In 1863 Virginia and West Virginia became two separate states.  All locations are approximate and consideration has been
taken to these changes as well as county name and boundary changes.  The website was the source of these
locations as well as,, NARA, and numerous free sites.  West Virginia has been a great resource.
