Washita County, Oklahoma
Created in 1900 from Cheyenne-Arapaho Lands. Named for the Washita River
which was called by the French "Faux Ouachita" literally meaning "false
Washita" in distinction from the true Ouachita, of Arkansas and Louisiana. Evidently
the spelling of the name of the Oklahoma stream was changed by substituting the
"W" for "Ou". The name Washita was that of one of the minor tribes of
the Caddoan stock.
Clerk of Courts has marriage, divorce, probate, civil court records from 1900.
