A reference made to a person having been born in Virginia could actually mean that ancestor was born in part of:

  Illinois from 1781-1818
Indiana from 1787-1816
Missouri from 1775-1792
West Virginia from 1769-1863
North Carolina from 1728-1803
Ohio from 1728-1803
Pennsylvania from 1752-1786
Tennessee from 1760-1803
