     Abraham Van Metre, like all of the Van Metres who were famous grazers and cattle traders, had extensive business relations with the frontier posts that were established along the borders during the advance of the settlers towards the Ohio Valley. With the pioneers who pressed farther into the wilderness and effected settlements in the most desirable localities, Abraham and his brothers were among them. Many emigrants from Virginia began to settle within the borders of southwestern Pennsylvania after the Indians had been dispersed and peace seemed to have restored confidence among the inhabitants.

Abraham acquired settlement rights to lands in Ohio County, Virginia; these were located on the waters of Short Creek, but some of it was not surveyed until 1786, long after he was deceased, but it became them the property of his heirs. A portion of this land, called Black's Cabin, and located on Short Creek, was the scene of the organization of Ohio County which was created out of the District of West Augusta, on Jan 6, 1777, and afterwards established at West Liberty.

A stockade was afterward erected on the Short Creek land a few miles above its juncture with the Ohio River, which became known as Van Metre's Fort. From 1777 to 1782 Major Samuel McCullough commanded at Fort Van Metre, styles the Court House Fort, from the circumstances of the first court of Ohio County in northwestern Virginia being held in it immediately after the organization of Ohio County from West Augusta. The Fort was one of the first erected in this part of Virginia and it stood on the north side of Short Creek, about five miles above its confluence with the Ohio. The well-known Van Metre Fort was located in Richland Township (now) Brooke County, West Virginia.
