History of Shirley County / Cloud County Kansas
Once it was a beautiful valley where nomadic Indians roamed. Then the decade between 1860 and 1870 brought settlers.
Shirley County was established on February 27, 1860, by the last Kansas Territorial legislature. Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861. At first Shirley County had been erroneously attached by the legislature to Marshall County, but later it was attached to Washington County. By an order of Governor Samuel J. Crawford, Shirley was organized as a county on September 6, 1866, with Moses Heller, G.W. Wilcox and Henry Lear as the appointed county commissioners, with N.D. Hagaman as the county clerk, and Elk Creek (later Clyde) as the temporary county seat.
On November 6, 1866, an election was held to select county officers and a permanent county seat. John W. Rupe was elected Shirley County's representative in the legislature. Quincy Honey was elected the first sheriff. Charles Davis became the first elected county clerk. Lew Fowler, Moses Heller and William English became the first elected board of county commissioners. Rochester was selected to be the county seat, but thereafter Rochester was simply ignored.
On May 27, 1867, the legislature changed the county's name from Shirley County to Cloud County.
Qunicy married Elizabeth Uglow. (Elizabeth Uglow was born on 17 Jun 1837 in Denbury, Devon, England, died on 29 Jun 1898 in Shirley Township, Cloud, Kansas and was buried in Walnut Grove Cemetery - Shirley Township, Cloud, Kansas.)
