Jasper County
Jasper County was organized in 1841.

Named after Sgt. William Jasper, a Revolutionary War hero.

County seat is Carthage.

Situated in the southwest corner of the State, is bounded on the west by Kansas State line, and separated from Arkansas by Newton and McDonald counties. The surface of the country is gently undulating, with about two-thirds prairie, and the remainder timber land. The prairies are very fertile, interspersed with streams of pure running water, the courses of which are skirted with timber. The southern part of the county is underlaid with mountain limestone, containing numerous and extensive deposits of lead and zinc. As an agricultural region, this stands high - all kinds of grain, grasses, fruit and vegetable yield good crops. The heavy yield of grasses, abundance of clear, cold spring branches, and the mild climate, renders this well adapted for stock growing. Manufacturers and capitalists will find on Spring River alone, at least fifty sites, furnishing good water power, unimproved. Good openings for all kinds of mechanics. There is an oil spring in township 84, range 28.
Population in 1860, 6,607. Towns, Carthage, Sarcoxie, Fidelity, Sherwood,. &c."
