Wayne County was organized in 1818.
The name came from General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, who served
in the Revolutionary War.
The County Seat is Greenville.
Is situated in the southeastern
part of the State. The face of the country is broken-probably not
more than one-third of the upland is tillable. About one-third bottom
land. The timber consists of pine, oak, ash, sugar tree, hickory,
white and black walnut, etc. Corn, wheat, oats and tobacco yield well, and
meadow grass is not excelled anywhere. Apples, plums, pears, grapes, all
yield abundantly. Lead, copper, and some other minerals abound in the
county. Grazing very good east of the St. Francois River, and on the
border of the swamps in the south part of the county. Splendid water power
and good openings for saw mills. [Source is: P.M. Pinckard, The Missouri
