Virginia is covered on the Northeast States List
The county was occupied by the Nadowa tribe, an Iroquoian people of
American Indians, prior to the European settlers. The Nadowa
tribe lived on the only river in the county, the Nadowa. The name
was changed to Nottoway. Formerly known as Nottoway Parish before
the county established government. In 1788 Nottoway Parish became
Nottoway County. This county prospered in its early days, due to
tobacco. The county contributed to the Confederate cause during
the Civil War, creating two infantry companies: The Nottoway Rifle
Guards & Captain Richard Irby's Nottoway Grays; Jeffress Artillery
Battery and the Nottoway Troop of the 3rd Virginia Cavalry. The
two infanty companies served in the 18th VA Regiment.
