Scope and Content

Scope and content: These letters, spanning 1885 to 1887, are from the residents and offices of Ford County, Kansas regarding county affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. In 1885, Ford county's lines changed leading to a vacancy in the county surveyor position because the current surveyor, John Werth, became unqualified. In 1886, a vacancy in the office of probate judge led G. W. Milton to write applying for the position. In 1887, P. F. Sughrue resigned from sheriff leading to a letter of recommendation with a signed petition for F. Singer. Ford County was organized on April 5, 1873 and named for Brigadier General James H. Ford, who established Fort Dodge.
