Creation: Appeared in July 1933 as a renumbering of:
VA 5 from VA 12 (now US 58 Bus) Courtland to VA 10/31 (now US 1-301) Petersburg. This is the only VA 35.
Adjustments: About 1926, VA 35 was rerouted in Petersburg to use today's US 301 ALT instead of US 301 approaching from the south.

In late 1926, US 17-1 was added to VA 35 from Templeton north to Petersburg.
In May 1926 (CTB), VA 35 was extended west with VA 12, then south as new routing 4.6 miles.
In Mar 1927 (CTB), VA 35 was extended south 6.5 miles to about Boykins.

In 1932, US 17-1 was replaced by US 301.
In July 1933, VA 35 north was truncated to US 301 Templeton, leaving behind
US 301 north to Petersburg.
In June 1947 (CTB), VA 35 was removed from SR 713 in Sebrell.
In Mar 1955 (CTB), VA 35 was removed from SRs 759/666 north of Boykins.
Around 1961, VA 35 was rerouted over new construction to its current end west of I-95. The old approach to US 301 became SR 668 and also part of a rerouted US 301. VA 35's endpoint was roughly across I-95 from the end of now-SR 696, 0.78 miles south of SR 711.
Improvements:  Paved from Courtland to Littleton upon its inception.
In 1924 or 1925, VA 35 was paved from Littleton to Homeville; also the first few miles south of Petersburg
In 1926, VA 35 was paved from Petersburg to Templeton; Homeville to the Prince George Line; VA 12 duplex
In 1927, VA 35 was paved from Templeton south to the Sussex Line
In 1932, VA 35 was paved from US 58 south to the NC Line.

US 301: 0 - 0
VA 35: 0.38 - 0.38
VA 35Y: Appears to have been created Apr 1939 (CTB) when US 301 was rebuilt in this area and lasted until at least 1963 as the southwest leg of a triangle formed at VA 35's approach to US 301. At that time, VA 35 was using SR 668. VA 35Y was a renumbering of part of US 301 and ran nearly due west from 35 close to the south end of SR 668 to US 301 which is no longer there (space taken up by I-95 and the current VA 35 interchange.
I believe part of this survives as the US 301-VA 156 duplex and some was physically destroyed as part of the VA 35 relocation in 1960.
