The old Arapahoe County had been attached to Marshall County, Kansas for county business purposes.[2]

When Colorado was organized 28 February 1861 its core included all parts of the original (Kansas) Arapahoe County. At that time three daughter counties were replaced, Broderick, Montana, and Oro, and their names were discontinued. The three other daughter counties, Arapahoe, El Paso, and Fremont, remained but with significantly modified borders.[3]
