This is an alphabetical listing of the List of Patrons from the 1883 Edwards Historical Atlas of Sumner Co., showing their Post Office address, township and section they lived in, occupation, place of birth and the year they settled in the county. Rather than being a list of all the residents or land owners in the county, it is evidently a list of those who had supported the publishing of the atlas, but it should be a helpful source of information about those who were included.
The townships are listed according to their names in the atlas for the township and range numbers. Below is a listing of the names given in the atlas, the legal description, and the current names. The three miles across the southern end of the county (T35S) was the Cherokee Strip, the pathway of the tribe to their western hunting grounds.
