Russell County, Virginia, was formed from Washington Co., Virginia; my Acklin, Hinds, and Black families lived in Washington County at one time. The Virginia county formation for 1785 (before Russell County was formed) and 1786 which shows Russell "RU" County.
Extracted Russell County, Virginia, deeds & indexes to deeds, circa 1786 - 1814, are online here.
