Gray County, Kansas

Date Established:

March 13, 1881

Date Organized:

July 20, 1887

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Gray County

County Seat:

Cimarron

Origin of Name:

Organized July 20, 1887.  Named for Alfred Gray (1830-1880), secretary of the Kansas Board of Agriculture.

History:

Gray was created by combining Foote County with the southern half of Buffalo County.

Cimarron and Ingalls were rival candidates for the county seat. The voting took place on 31 Oct 1885 and both towns claimed victory. Both were armed to the teeth, and the governor was forced to send a detachment of militia to keep the peace. The county offices were moved to Ingalls in 1887, but after several rounds of litigation Cimarron emerged the winner.

Tribune

Origin of Name:

In honor of Horace Greeley (1811-1872), the famed founder and editor of the New York Tribune, who advocated support of land grants for farmers and a government-financed railroad to the Pacific.

He is best remembered for his advice, "Go west, young man."

Hamilton County, Kansas

Date Established:

March 20, 1873

Date Organized:

 

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Hamilton County

County Seat:

Syracuse

Origin of Name:

In honor of Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804), Revolutionary War veteran, author of The Federalist, and the first Secretary of the Treasury for the young United States. Hamilton was killed in a duel with Aaron Burr.  Organized January 29, 1886.

Description and history:

The Arkansas river, the Santa Fe railroad, and highway US 50, running almost together, divide the county and join all of its towns. If you leave the valley, you'll be in the rolling high plains.

  • For about five miles just west of Syracuse, highway US 50 follows the original path of the mountain route of the Santa Fe Trail.
  • If you look off to the North from highway US 50 in Coolidge, you can see the old stone water tower.
  • If you're feeling a little more adventurous, take the river road along the south side of the river from Syracuse to Coolidge. You'll have cottonwoods on one side and pastures on the other.
  • There is a sinkhole about seven miles south of Coolidge. It's not very impressive, but the drive down to see it gives a good sense of the countryside.
  • In 1900, Mayline was a tiny town on the AT&SF halfway between Kendall and Syracuse. The 1927-1928 Report from the State Board of Agriculture makes no mention of it.
  • The Northrup Theater in Syracuse opened April 7, 1930 with "Footlights and Fools" starring Colleen Moore. The ornate "art deco" paint job on the interior was added in the forties. The building has been restored and is operated by the Chamber of Commerce.
  • The Donahue Memorial Hospital in Syracuse has been replaced but the gracious old three-story brick building still stands on a tree-covered site high above most of town.

Harper County, Kansas

Date Established:

February 26, 1867

Date Organized:

 

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Harper County

County Seat:

Anthony

Origin of Name:

In memory of Sgt. Marion Harper of Co. E, Second Kansas Cavalry, who died at Waldron, Ark., on 30 Dec 1863 of wounds received the previous day.

History:

Organized in 1873.  The organization of this county was one of the most glaring frauds ever perpetrated in the State.  Attorney-General Williams, in his official report, says: "It is not pretended that Harper county ever had an inhabitant."  The form of its organization was legal on paper, and that is all.  In 1878 the organization became legal.  The county was named in memory of Marion Harper, first sergeant of Company E, Second Regiment Kansas Cavalry.  He was mortally wounded at Waldron, Ark., December 29, 1863, and died the following day.  His comrades say he took his death coolly.  When brought in wounded, he proposed a wager that in so many hours he would be dead; the bet was taken, and Marion Harper won.

Hodgeman County, Kansas

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Hodgeman County

County Seat:

Jetmore

Origin of Name:

Organized in 1879.  County seat Jetmore.  Named in honor of Amos Hodgman, Captain of Company H, Seventh Kansas Cavalry. He died on October 16, 1863, near Oxford, Miss., of wounds received in an action at Wyatt, Miss., October 10, 1863. The name should be spelled Hodgman without the e--it was so spelled in the original statute of 1868 which created the county, but by accident--probably--in the statute which defined its boundaries in 1873, the e was inserted. Of course it is legally Hodgeman, and must remain orthographically incorrect until changed by legislative enactment.

Kingman County, Kansas

Date Established:

March 07, 1872

Date Organized:

 

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Kingman County

County Seat:

Kingman

Origin of Name:

In honor of Samuel A. Kingman (1818-1904), member of the Wyandotte Constitutional Convention, chief justice of the Kansas supreme court, briefly state librarian, and first president of the Kansas State Historical Society.  Organized in 1874.

History:

Kingman County was created after Governor Osborne received a somewhat questionable petition claiming that the county had over 600 settlers. The town and the county were named for Samuel A. Kingman, early president of the Kansas Bar Association and Chief Justice of the state supreme court as well as first president of the Kansas State Historical Society.
 
Highway 54 is officially designated as the Cannonball Stageline Highway from the east edge of Kingman thru Greensburg--so named for the colorful stagecoach driver who ran the Cannon Ball Stage Line beginning originally in Wichita, moved westward to Kingman, and from there on westward ahead of the railroads. Without him and other stage lines, western Kansas would have been settled much slower.
 
Clyde Cessna built a monoplane on his farm near Rago in 1910.

Labette County, Kansas

Date Established:

February 26, 1867

Date Organized:

 

Location:

Kansas map showing location of Labette County

County Seat:

Oswego

Origin of Name:

Tradition asserts that the name is from the French words la bête, meaning 'the beast.'; the story goes that Labette Creek, the second largest stream in the county, was named by a group of French trappers after an encounter with a skunk; the county then took its name from the creek. Other sources, however, state the stream and the county are named for Pierre Bete [also spelled Baete or Beatte], a French-Canadian trapper and trader who married into the Osage tribe and lived along the Neosho River in the 1830s and 40s. Pierre Bete served as a guide for Washington Irving during the author's tour across the prairie in 1832.  Legally organized in 1867.  Originally part of Dorn county after Colonel Earl Van Dorn, of the regular army (he was also a Confederate officer), but changed from Dorn to Neosho in 1861 after name of the principal river in southern Kansas.  Labette county has a peculiar history, not generally known, or at least not found in the books.  Prior to the summer of 1866 all that part (and being the south half) of Neosho county, now comprising Labette, was sparsely populated.  In the spring of 1866 there was a great rush of immigration to that locality, and the new settlers proceeded to organize a government of their own.  They gave the name Labette (then writen La Bette), and called a convention, nominated a full set of county officers, and a representative to the State Legislature, and elected them at the November election, and started a county government--for all of which no authority of law whatever existed.  The "Representative" so elected was Charles H. Bent, who reported at Topeka with a petition, "signed by John G. Rice and 224 other citizens of Labette county," asking that Mr. Bent be admitted to a seat in the House.  He was admitted, and afterwards submitted a Bill to "organize and define the boundaries of Labette county," which passed, and was approved the 7th of February, 1867.  The word La Bette is French, and signifies "the beet."
