Pima County, named for the Pima Indians, is in southeastern Arizona. Today it is home to Arizona's second largest metropolitan area, which includes Tucson, which is also its county seat, and the location of many records of value to researchers of this area.
It is part of the 'Gadsden Purchase', the last area in the lower 48 United States to be ceded to the United States by Mexico. Tucson itself had been a community for many years and in 1847 the United States flag was first raised over Tucson by the United States Mormon Battalion, the party that blazed the southern route across to San Diego.
1864--Pima County was created 15 December 1864 as an original county. County seat: Tucson

Binghampton. Outside of Old Tucson there was a Mormon settlement called Binghampton. There are a series of leaflets published that contain many of the stories of this community, "Binghampton: The Life and Times of its people since 1892". Author is unknown, but going to the Binghampton Cemetery caretaker is the key to research for these ancestors. See cemetary reference below.
