Pratt County organization records

Pratt County organization records
Creator: Kansas. Secretary of State
Date: 1873-1879
In order for an unorganized county to be recognized by the state of Kansas, a certain number of householders/legal electors had to petition the governor. The governor would appoint a census taker. Initially, unorganized counties were required to document that they had at least 600 inhabitants in order to be recognized as a county by the state legislature. Over time the number of residents needed to organize a county changed to 1500 and later to 2500 residents. The census was submitted to the governor who then issued a proclamation indicating that the requirements had been met, appointing county commissioners and a county clerk, and naming a county seat. Not all of these documents are available for each county. Included in this file is the memorial to the governor, a Pratt County census, and two proclamations. One proclamation designates Iuka as the temporary county seat and the other names Prattville as the temporary county seat.
