This county was named after a Mexican-American War hero, brevet Brigadier General Sylvester Churchill. It was formed in 1861 but not organized until 1864.

The County has had several county seats: Bucklands, 1861-1864, which is now in Lyon County; La Plata 1864-1868, Stillwater 1868-1904 and Fallon 1904 to the present.


Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.
