I'll take a stab....
Check to make sure that the attribute fields used to create the symbology =
for the original layer are not suspended in the fields tab of the original =
layer's layer properties. Any fields that are not visible will not be =
exported as you make your county specific shape files, and your imported =
layer file will look ok in the symbology dialog, but it will not have the =
fields and attributes it needs to draw the layer. Nothing will draw. Hope =
