Original County "Fifth"
Created in 1890, orginal county. Named for its county seat town which in turn was named for the creek. There was a dispute as to the origin of the name of the creek. Some contend that it was named for the piscatorial bird which dives into its waters, while others stoutly maintain that it was named for a cattleman, King Fisher, whose ranch headquarters were located in its valley. The facts are as follows: Two ranchmen - an uncle and a nephew - by the name of Fisher were located in the vinicity of Kingfisher at an early day. The uncle had his ranch on one creek which was called for him, "Uncle John's Creek", and is so named to this day. The nephew, whose first name was King, had his ranch on the other creek, and for him, it was and still is called King Fisher Creek.
