The courts which, at the time of the passage of the act creating a new county, had
jurisdiction over the counties from which it is formed shall retain jurisdiction over
all actions, suits and proceedings therein pending at the passage of the act, and
shall try and determine the same, and award execution and other process thereon, except
in cases in which the plaintiff and one or more of the defendants reside or do business
in the new county; which last-mentioned cases, together with the papers and a transcript
of the record of the proceedings therein had, shall, after that day, if either party
so desires, be transferred to the proper court of the new county, and there tried
and determined as other cases brought in the new county.
