https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermont_Republic The members of the Convention of 1787 assumed that Vermont was not yet separate from New York; however, Madison's notes on the Federal Convention of 1787 make clear that there was an agreement by New York to allow for the admission of Vermont to the union;[9] it was just a question of process, which was delayed by larger federal questions..... On March 6, 1790, the legislature of New York consented to Vermont statehood.

West Virginia, along with Kentucky was still part of Virginia during the colonial/early statehood period. West Virginia in fact, stayed part of Virginia until the Civil War. And Kentucky actually started as a county in Virginia - Kentucky County. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentucky_County,_Virginia
Citychik clarified what she meant.
