Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Dade 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. I thank you in advance for your consideration.

Is situated in the south-western part of the State. The face of the country is undulating, and in some portions broken-more prairie than timber. The soil is generally fertile, and well adapted to the various purposes of agriculture, horticulture, and stock raising. Water power is abundant-upon some of the streams unimproved. Iron, copper, and coal have been found in various parts of the county, but no mine have been worked to any considerable extent. Timber enough along the valleys for practical purposes.
The mildness of the climate, abundance of native and cultivated grasses, and of stock water render this county well adapted to stock growing. Thousands of cattle have been driven from here to Utah and California. There were on the 1st of March, about 30,000 acres of government land in this county, subject to entry at the Booneville Lane Office.

Established: Jan. 29, 1841
Parent County: Barry and Polk
County Seat: Greenfield
Named After: Francis L. Dade, pioneer settler
