Biographical or historical data
Monongalia County (West) Virginia derived its name from the Monongahela River, although the county's name is spelled slightly differently. Monongahela is an Indian word meaning the river of crumbling or caving banks. Monongalia County was created in 1776 from the district of West Augusta, and parts of Augusta County were added in 1779 and 1780. Monongalia County was one of the fifty western Virginia counties to form the state of West Virginia in 1863.
