Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Livingston 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.

I regret that I am unable to do personal research.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.
Join our Mailing Lists to be notified of our website updates.

Transcribed by Donna Walton

Is situated in the northwestern part of the State, and contains an area of 530 square miles. The surface of the county is generally level or slightly rolling, and the soil admirably adapted to the production of all kinds of grain, grasses, fruit and vegetables that flourish in this latitude.  Stock-growers will find here an excellent location for the profitable prosecution of that enterprise. Lead has been found in several localities, and banks are already opened near Utica, and at other points in the county, which will in some measure compensate for the scarcity of timber. Principal towns Chillicothe, Utica, Bedford, and Dawn. Population in 1860, 6,833.

Established: Jan. 6, 1837
Parent County: Carroll
County Seat: Chillicothe
Named After: Secretary of State Edward Livingston.
