Like many other counties in eastern Montana, McCone County had many different newspapers start up.  The filing of homesteads required that legal notices be filed in a newspaper so that the public would be aware.  This was almost like a guaranteed income for the publisher of the newspaper.  At least until the homesteading period was over.

The Montana Historical Society has microfilm copies of those newspapers marked with an asterisk.   The McCone County Museum has copies of many of these newspapers, plus an index of obituaries.
