Chase County is located in the east central part of Kansas, about 100 miles west of Missouri, and was formed in 1859 from Butler and Morris (formerly Wise) counties. It was named for Salmon P. Chase, who was a governor of Ohio, U.S. Senator, U.S. Treasurer, and Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Cottonwood Falls is the county seat. Surrounding counties include Morris County to the north; Lyon and Greenwood counties to the east and southeast respectiviley; Butler County to the south, and Marion County to the west.

We will be building this web site over time to include information and records to assist you as you research your Cloud County families.
