Arizona Counties:

Arizona - Statehood - 1912. Capital= Phoenix

Following the organization of the Arizona Territory in 1862 the land was split up into four counties created by 1864(Mohave, Pima, Yavapai and Yuma). These four original counties were then further split until today there are fifteen counties in Arizona (Apache, Cochise, Coconino, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Yavapai, and Yuma). Pah-Ute County is Arizona's only extinct county and was situated in the northwest corner of Arizona Territory. It was created from the division of the existing Mohave County on December 22, 1865 with the county seat the town of Callville. It lasted until May 5, 1866 when most of it was claimed by the new state of Nevada with the remainder being reabsorbed back into Mohave County.  Check historical Newspapers from these areas for anniversaries, marriages and wedding announcements.
