I am Candie Freeman, Coordinator for the Cabell County web site. Please email me if you have any suggestions or contributions you would like to make. This site is currently undergoing major changes and a lot of the links will be broken or some files may be missing.  This will soon be alleviated as the new look takes form. I enjoy being your coordinator and I hope you enjoy your visit.

Cabell County was established in 1809 from Kanawha County, when the area was still the state of Virginia. The county seat has changed several times throughout our history, originally located at Guyandotte, moved back and forth between Barboursville and Guyandotte a few times, until 1887 when it was moved to Huntington. Most of Huntington is in Cabell, but a small portion of the city, mainly the area of Westmoreland, is in Wayne County.

I hope you find my efforts helpful in your research of your Cabell County roots. I am unable to do personal research on your family, as I do not have the time to devote to all the request I receive. I post everything I have on this site for all to use and Lookup services are available.
