MAP XII, 1881, '82.

In 1881 Thomas and Sheridan counties were restored to their original boundaries. The second standard parallel again became the north line of Gove and the third standard parallel the south line. The west line was pushed twelve miles west to the east line of range 32. Lane was diminished on the north by one tier of townships and increased on the south by a tier taken from Buffalo. Out of the remainder of Buffalo and all of Foote a new county was created, and named Gray. Wallace county was recreated out of that part of the original county west of the east line of range 38, and the part east of that line was formed into St. John county (Laws of 1881, pp. 131-133).

Rawlins county was organized in 1881.
