  Brief History from Wikipedia:

 Finney County began about 1880 as Buffalo County and Sequoyah County, named after Sequoyah, the Cherokee Indian
 responsible for the development of the Cherokee alphabet. The two counties were renamed Finney County in honor of then
 Lieutenant Governor David Wesley Finney. The county grew to the current shape after Garfield County was annexed to it
 in 1893. The northeast block, separate from the otherwise rectangular area, represents what at one time was Garfield County,
 which is now occupied partially by the Garfield Township.

 Charles "Buffalo" Jones, a co-founder of Garden City, was the first member of the Kansas House of Representatives from
 Finney County. He was known for his efforts to preserve the buffalo from extinction.


Some of the files linked to in the below areas are somewhat large pdf  files.  They may take some time to load. 
  I have split some pdf files into multiple files in an attempt to improve the load speed.
