Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Gentry 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 a success. If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information and email Nancy Piper.

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.

Transcribed by Donna Walton

Is situated in the northwestern part of the State, bounded on the north by the Iowa State Line. The face of the country is undulating, diversified with prairie and timber, and well watered by Grand River and its tributaries. Indications of rich beds of copper and an excellent quality of bituminous coal have been found, but no banks or mines have been opened. The soil is very fertile, and well adapted to the production of all grains and grasses suitable to this climate. The county is settled by intelligent, industrious people, and immigrants will find excellent inducements for any kind of business.
