place name - county no longer a county

I have been working to resolve place names for several days now & it was going great! But I don't know what I did, I had several town/cities listed under 'Houghton' county, but now the county 'map check mark' is grey, like there isn't anything in just the county & the county does not have a + next to it, so it can't be expanded. Those who I know died in the county, but I don't know what city, are listed under the name 'Houghton County'. No other county lists 'county' after its name. Many, many town & city names should be listed under 'Houghton' as a county - it is the county that my ancestors settled in when they 1st came to America & many of us are still here, so I have about 150 yrs of people linked to that county, not all people are linked to places yet, but there should be several towns, cemeteries, hospitals, parks, etc. When I go to my record for instance, everything looks just fine, my town, county, state & country are listed like they should be for each of my facts - birth, engagment & marriage, but my town, my church & the park where my hubby proposed are not listed anywhere on the places list. Any idea where there are - how do I get them to appear in the place name list again, in the proper county & state. thanks for any insight
