I understand the desire, but I have to point out that Counties don't have the standing to succeed from states. States succeeded from the Union because they are/were sovereign states who joined the union. Counties are not sovereign, they were formed BY the State.
Sorry, I hope my legal OCD doesn't put a damper on things!

I don’t know, ever heard of West Virginia?

Counties can secede from a State, but it's very difficult (see Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1).

It's interesting to note, therefore, that the existence of WEST Virginia is a myth. I suggest you hustle to Charleston and let them know, at once...

It wouldn’t have to be an actual seccession, anyway.
The state could be divided into two separately governed sections. No different than creating a new county.
