Township Information for Logan County Oklahoma
Logan County Township Information
Compiled, Researched and © by: Bob Chada
These township pages will be under construction until all known cemeteries and schools and etc, are in place. So please bear with us.
What we are attempting to do, is take each township in Logan County, Oklahoma and place all we know about the township together, such as cemeteries, old & new schools, historical events that took place within a particular township etc. We are starting with Marshall Township. If you have any information you would like to add here, please e-mail coordinator.
Two points of information about the layout of Logan County. First, the northern boundary line of the county (Marshall, LeBron and Orlando townships) extends some 1/4 mile north into the corresponding townships of Garfield and Noble Counties. The reason for this is that the actual county line in this area was set along the same line which established the southern boundary of the Cherokee Outlet under the 1835 New Echota Treaty.
Second, the eastern three townships of North Cimarron, South Cimarron and Iowa did not become a part of Logan County until after the second land opening of September 22, 1891.
