Is situated in the eastern part of the
State, on the north shore of the Missouri river.
This county was created from St.
Charles, in 1818, and some of the most daring battles fought between
the pioneers and the savages occurred upon territory now embraced
within its limits.
The northern portion of the county is
level prairie-the southern broken timberland.
Cannel coal has been found in
considerable quantities near Danville, and bituminous coal near
Wellsville, is very abundant. The whole county is under laid with
coal. There are fine springs, good building stone, clay for bricks,
etc. The soil is generally fertile, and adapted to all the purposes
of agriculture. Stock growing could be profitably conducted. Having
the Missouri river on the south, for shipment, and being traversed
by the North Missouri railroad, the county possesses superior
commercial facilities. Population in 1860, 7,363. [Source is: P.M. Pinckard, The Missouri handbook, St.
