MAP VIII, 1869-1872.

Montgomery county was organized in 1869. The same year the northeast corner of Morris county was squared by the addition of a tract eight miles wide and nine miles long, taken from Wabaunsee county (Laws of 1869, p. 57), but the next year a part of the tract was returned, so that the boundary between the two counties assumed its final form (Laws of 1870, p. 89).

In 1870 Cowley, Jewell, Lincoln, McPherson, Mitchell and Sedgwick counties were organized. The same year the line between Allen and Neosho counties was pushed two miles south from the north line of the Osage lands to the line between townships 26 and 27 (id. p. 88).

In 1871 Zeandale township, consisting of a tract six miles wide, extending in the Kansas river to the north line of township 13, was detached from Wabaunsee and given to Riley (Laws of 1871, p. 105).

During 1871 and 1872 Sumner, Osborne, Barton, Harvey, Norton, Pawnee, Phillips, Rooks, Russell and Smith counties were organized.
