Kentucky's border along the Ohio River is one example: the border is 
defined to be the low water mark of the Ohio-Indiana-Illinois bank as of 
the 18th century [1], so it's not the centerline and not quite the 
northern riverbank. Along Ohio's section of the river, all the islands 
belong to Kentucky or West Virginia.
