Hello Gayle,
Fort Smith history can be found in the Cutler History of Kansas (1882). There is quite a bit of history. This book is on line, and the particular chapter for Bourbon County is located at
I found it in my 1995 Atlas, with the population listed as 8,362. Perhaps it was just to teeny-tiny to be on the map in 1940 (?). You might try looking for a web site for Fort Scott &/or write to the City Hall to find out if they have local records. Perhaps they can send you some history on the town, or guide you to the local museum (if any).
