"OLD" KNOX COUNTY Indiana
There was a Knox County formed in 1790 as an original county in the Northwest Territory; it is not the county of this name in Ohio today.  The "old" Knox County encompassed what would become west-central and northwestern Ohio, the entire state of Indiana, western Michigan, and eastern Illinois and Wisconsin.  In 1796 "Old" Wayne Co. gained from "Old" Knox Co., and in 1798, Hamilton Co. gained from "Old" Knox Co. to the extent that "Old" Knox Co. no longer existed in what would become Ohio.  This once gigantic county is now the small county of the same name in southwestern Indiana.
