Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Audrain 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 Nancy.

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 situated north from the center of the State, and embraces an area of 680 square miles. The face of the country is generally rich, undulating prairie, interspersed with timer-about three-fourths being prairie. Being on the high lands, or "divide" between the Mississippi and the Missouri, the climate is healthy, and the numerous streams running north, south and eat, furnish a good supply of water. The soil is well adapted to the growth of grasses of all kinds, oats and corn-hence favorable for stock-growing. All kinds of grain, grasses fruit and vegetables raised here, and farmers will find excellent land, favorably located, at low prices, and a good demand for all kinds of produce. The county is traversed by the North Missouri railroad, affording good facilities for reaching market. Manufactories of woolen good, farming utensils, carriages, wagons, &, could be established at Mexico, the county seat, profitably. The country trade from Mexico extends 25 miles in every direction.
