Sequoyah County, now a part of Finney county, was created in 1873 and named for Sequoyah (q. v.), the Cherokee Indian, who invented the written language of his tribe. The act creating the county defined the boundaries as follows: "Commencing at the intersection of the east line of range 31 west with the 4th standard parallel; thence south along range line to the intersection with the north line of township 27 south; thence west along township line to where it intersects the east line of range 35 west; thence north along range line to where it intersects the 4th standard parallel; thence east to the place of beginning." The territory included within these boundaries now constitutes the western two-thirds of Finney county, which was formed in 1883. (See Finney county.)
