Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Andrew County, Missouri. As we believe all data should be without cost, our goal at Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.
This is a continuation of our original, and highly successful, Genealogy Trails Illinois History and Genealogy Project and we are excited about this opportunity to expand into other states. We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as our Illinois websites are. If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information and email Kim.
You are welcome to browse the information on these pages and at the many links provided to garner the data needed to continue your research into your family history. However, Please remember that this information, in many cases, represents years of painstaking research on the part of myself, or the many generous volunteers who have donated their information to this site. You can show your respect for these efforts by not taking things to use on other websites and/or to claim as your own. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Is bounded on the west by the Missouri and Nodaway rivers, on the south by Buchanan, and separated from the Iowa line by Nodaway County. The land is fertile and rolling-more timber than prairie. The average product of farms, is of hemp, 600 to 1000 lbs. Per acre; corn 100 bushels; wheat 40; oats 30; buckwheat 50; potatoes, onions and beets, immense crops; grapes flourish finely, producing 600-800 gallons of wine to the acre; good yields of all kinds of grasses, and most varieties of fruit. Unimproved land is held at from $2 to $6 per acre, and improved farms at from $15 to $50-in rare instances property can be purchased at lower figures. Water power has been improved, and is in use on the One-hundred and Two, the Platte and Nodaway. Savannah, the county seat, is five miles from the Missouri rivers, and twelve miles from St. Joseph.
