Thomas Condit Miller and Hu Maxwell, in their West Virginia and Its People, 1913, Lewis Historical Publishing Co, had this to say about the birth of Mingo Co: quot;Mingo county was formed from a part of Logan county, and derives its name from the Mingo tribe of Indians, of which Logan was the famous chieftain. ... It was the last county to be formed in West Virginia. Tug river forms its southern boundary. ... Williamson, the county seat, is the metropolis of the Big Sandy region ... "
Mingo County was formed in 1895 from Logan County.

S-K Publications - The 1900 Mingo County, WV, Census contains 230 pages (census images) in Enumeration Districts 88 through 92. Page 88-07B was not copied from the microfilm, as it is blank. The bottoms of many of the pages (especially in Enumeration Districts 90 and 91) were extremely dark, making the handwriting impossible to read. The name of each image file is the page number. (In the case of 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1920 census, the file name includes both the Enumeration District and the page number.)
Several members of the Mingo County WV Mailing List were responsible for the imaging of the 1920 Mingo County WV Census..read about it here
