Montgomery County

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.
