Cumberland County, Republic of Vermont

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cumberland County, Republic of Vermont was a short-lived county in Vermont, comprising two counties which seceded from New York in 1777: Cumberland County and Gloucester County. On 17 March 1778 Bennington and Unity Counties created as the first two original counties in Vermont.[1] On 21 March 1778 Unity County renamed Cumberland County.[2] In 1781, this county was broken up into three counties in Vermont and one that eventually became part of New Hampshire.
