MAP XIII, 1883, '84.

In 1883 Kearney, Sequoyah, Gray, Grant, Arapahoe, Kansas, Stevens, Meade and Clark counties disappeared. Hamilton, Ford, Seward and Hodgeman were enlarged, and Finney created to include the territory of the first named counties, In the redistribution of this territory the fourth standard parallel became the north line and the sixth standard parallel the south line of Hamilton, Finney and Hodgeman counties. Hamilton extended east to the east line of range 37; Finney beginning there extended to the east line of range 29 west, and Hodgeman extended from that line to the east line of 21 west. The south line of Hodgeman was the south line of township 24. Ford occupied the district south of Hodgeman, and Seward was bounded on the north by the sixth standard parallel and on the east by the east line of range 29 west, and extended to the western and southern boundaries of the state. Townships 21 of ranges 27 to 30 were detached from Lane, and the first two were attached to Hodgeman, and the last two to Finney (Laws of 1883, pp. 113-115). Finney was organized in 1883.
