Leigh Read was never an official county of Florida. There was an attempt in 1842 to rename Mosquito County to Leigh Read County. It would have been named in honor of the former legislator. Although the bill honoring Read passed the legislature, a clerk kept the bill from reaching the governor's desk. Therefore, it never became official, but the name Leigh Read can be found in several documents of the time.
