Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Mongomery 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 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.
