History of southeast Missouri : a narrative account of its historical progress, its people and its principal interests, published by Robert Sidney Douglass in 1912 is similar in its scope and presentation to Goodspeed's book published in 1888. Like Goodspeed's book, you will find a wealth of historical and biographical information. The book can be downloaded for free from this website.

This digitized version of Goodspeed's 1888 book features an index that was added to make the book easier to use. To view the book here, you must create a Family Search account (free). Unfortunately, though indexed, the version on this website is a more difficult to navigate through. It is suggested you use the index from the book here and then go to the digitized version of the book at the Missouri Digital Heritage website (the other link to the book on this list). Also see the other entry for a detailed description of the book.

From the Place Names Collection at the State Historical Society of Missouri. The information on this page is part of the Ramsay Place Names File, a collection of Missouri place name origins compiled from 1928-1945. The language used to describe groups of people in this collection reflects the time and place the document was created. Since the language is part of this historical document, it remains as originally printed, although it does not reflect the current values or beliefs held by the SHSMO.
