Ness County did not settle very rapidly at first, but is few early residents were ambitious and enterprising, and very anxious to secure a county organization. In 1873, on the claim that the county had, by the Assessor's returns, 600 inhabitants, a petition for an organization was sent to the Governor. The county was organized October 23, 1873, O. H. Perry, Thomas Myers and John Rogers being appointed Special County Commissioners, and Charles McGuire, Special County Clerk. 1

Organized in 1873. County seat, Ness City. Named in honor of Noah V. Ness, corporal of Company G, Seventh Kansas Cavalry, who died Aug. 24, 1864, at Abbeyville, Miss., of wounds received in action, August 19, 1864. 2
