Cooper County: 1877 / 1897 / 1915 / 1929 Sectional and Township Maps|
The above link will lead you a sectional map of Cooper County with Townships included. There is a hidden surprise. A must see! Trust me, I get more pleased comments about this link then any other.
This link will take you to the Microsoft Research Maps page at http://msrmaps.com. The link is set up for Boonville, Missouri but you can easily change locations. I was able to find my long ago home. Generally, I don't send people to sites that make their living selling things. It just goes against the grain. But I could find nothing else that offered the same thing for free. So I apologize if you are offended.
| County Formation Maps|
Okay, I lied. This link is just too good to let you escape without looking at them. These set of maps detail the county formations both visually through the maps but also with a textual description of what changed. The maps extend through time as the county changes occurred, year by year.
