  • 29 December 1863 Arizona's three judicial districts were established by Arizona Territory Organic Act from part of New Mexico Territory
  • By November 1864 Mohave County created by the Arizona legislature as an original county from parts of the 2nd and 3rd Judicial Districts. The 3rd District part eventually became part of Nevada
  • 22 December 1865 Pah-Ute County created by Arizona from part of Mohave County, Arizona Territory
  • 18 January 1867 Pah-Ute County, and Mohave County, Arizona Territory west of the Colorado River and west of 114° west longitude was given to Nevada by the U.S. Congress. This area became Clark County, and the southern part of Lincoln and Nye counties in Nevada.[1]

TerritoryOrganized as an original county 17 January 1854 as part of Utah Territory. Carson County was created from the far western parts of Tooele, Juab, Millard, and Iron counties. It was enlarged in 1856, then discontinued in 1857. It was reorganized as part of Utah in 1859, but the local citizens rejected that effort.
