   Doniphan County Data

  Brief History:

Doniphan County was organized on September 18, 1855, as one of the 33 original counties organized by the Territorial
 Legislature. It was founded by Joel P. Blair; E. B. Rogers; and A. Dunning, and contains the cities of Troy, Highland, White
 Cloud, Denton, Elwood, Wathena, Leona and Severance. It was named for General Alexander Doniphan, of Mexican War
 fame. It is said that in the county seat war between Troy and Wathena, the story is told of a cannon that was stolen nightly by
 one town or the other, depending on who had it in their possession, until finally someone sunk it in the local creek. It was also
 told that the county records were treated in the same manner.
