   Accomack County, Virginia is the larger of the 2 counties of Virginia's Eastern Shore. The county was probably named for the Accawmacke indians who were native to the area when an English expidition landed in 1603. Accomack County originally encompassed the entire eastern shore of Virginia but was split into 2 counties in 1663.
   According to the Wikipedia article - the very first sheriff in the United States, William Stone, was appointed to serve Accomack County in 1634.
   These Virginia eastern shore counties were not part of the confederacy during the Civil War and were held by the forces of the United States government.
