Logan County organization records

Logan County organization records
Creator: Kansas. Secretary of State
Date: 1887
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 are two proclamations from the governor. One asking for a census be taken for Logan County and the other appointing county officials and designating Russell Springs as the temporary county seat.
