Adair County

Book Description:

Early days in Adair County, MO, are recalled in detail in this book, a slightly abridged reprint of the rare 1911 book: History of Adair County, Missouri by E.M. Violette. The 11" x 8 1/2" spiral bound booklet is printed on 60# paper, with the print enlarged for easier reading. A vinyl sheet protects the front cover. This book contains 234 pages. However, because we use a 2-up format on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, it has the equivalent of over 460 pages from the original book. Topics covered in the history of this rural county in central Missouri include: Indian mounds, Early Settlements, Creation of the County, Population Growth, County Organization with names of early officials, County Politics, Civil War era, The Battle of Kirksville in 1862, Churches, Organizations -- Fraternal, Patriotic and Industrial -- with many names mentioned, Public Schools, The Normal School for training teachers, the Schools of Osteopathy, the County press, Industries, Transportation, Banks, Medical Profession, Kirksville, Other towns -- Brashear, Nineveh, Novinger, etc. Brief biographies are offered in a Memoriam section. These include: J.R. Adkins, H.J. Bailey, Andrew Beatty, B.W. Bell, B.A. Bozarth, J.M. Bozarth, W.G. Brashear, Guy Chandler, Robert Clark, D.J. Clarkson, A.K. Collett, Edwin Darrow, J.M.

Greenwood, followed by bios of "Great Men of the County" -- John Roy Musick, Judge Andrew Ellison, Judge James Ellison, Superintendent J.M. Greenwood, John R. Kirk, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and Judge George W. Wanamaker. The book contains numerous illustrations, but many are of poor quality.
