Virginia is covered on the Northeast States List
The area was inhabited by Native Americans before the arrival of Europeans in the 17th century. Some of these were the Monacan Tribe, of Siouan heritage. A group of French Huguenot refugees looking to escape religious persecution, arrived around the turn of the 18th century. The Virginia General Assembly created Powhatan County in May 1777, out of Cumberland County. Chief Powhatan, the father of Pocohantas, was the inspiration of its name.
