Researchers should remember that from 1818 to 1847, Gallatin County included the present county as well as the territory now included in Saline County, and the northeastern third or so of Hardin County (thus Cave-in-Rock Township). The dividing line between Gallatin and Pope counties ran along the south border of what is now Saline County to its southeastern corner and then diagonally southeastwards to the Cave-in-Rock (the village, which is west of the cave sat in Pope County).
