In 1861 that part of township 10 of range 8 lying in Davis county was transferred to Riley (Territorial Laws of 1861, p. 16). Madison county disappeared, its territory being divided between Breckinridge and Greenwood. Greenwood received all south and Breckinridge all north of the line between townships 21 and 22 (id. p. 17). The south line of Woodson was pushed twelve miles north to the north line of the Osage lands (Session Laws of 1861, p. 107). The name of Lykins county was changed to Miami, Dorn to Neosho and Godfroy to Seward (id. p. 114). Greenwood county was organized the next year (Laws of 1862, p. 443).

In 1864 Neosho county was organized. The eastern boundary of Morris county was pushed four miles east to the line between ranges 9 and 10 east (Laws of 1864, p. 48). Dickinson county was restored to its original form plus eight sections from the eastern part of township 14, range 5 east, and the western boundary of Davis was correspondingly modified (id. pp. 48, 49). Chase county was extended south to the north line of township 93, and Butler county was enlarged so as to include Irving, Otoe, and Hunter, and all other territory east of the sixth principal meridian (id. p. 50).
