  Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Montgomery County, which contains the cities of Tyro, Caney, Havana, Cherryvale, Coffeyville, Dearing, Independence,
 Liberty and Elk City, was named for General Richard Montgomery who was killed at the Battle of Quebec. Louis Scott;
 Frank Buner; L. T. Stephenson; R. S. Parkhurst; E. E. Wilson; Fred Bunker; W.O. Sylvester; Paddy Gillula; and George Reed
 organized it on June 3, 1869.

 The discovery of oil and gas in 1890 was the most significant long range event in the county's history. The Dalton Raid on the
 Coffeyville banks in 1892, and the subsequent defense of the town from the robbery by the citizenry, is significant for citizens
 defending their right to law and order.

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.
