Montgomery County
Originally part of Wilson County, Montgomery County was created by an act of the legislature in 1867, and comprised a little more than the southern half of Wilson.  Much of Montgomery County was held by the Osage tribe, but in 1870, various treaties had pushed them across the line to Indian Territory. Montgomery County is watered by three main streams: the Verdigris, Elk and Caney.  These rivers and their tributaries contribute fertile botom land in their valleys, and the rest of the area is comprised by gently rolling prairies, interrupted only by occasional "mounds," which rise abruptly out of the plains. Independence is the county seat of Montgomery County.  Other towns include Coffeyville, Cherryvale, Dearing, Elk City, Liberty, Tyro and Havana.
