Genealogical Society of Boone County and Central Missouri

Biographical sketches that appear in the 1882 History of Boone County, Missouri, by William Switzler  have been extracted from the book. These sketches were usually submitted by the subject or their family.  The information may have been glorified as these were commonly known as "vanity books".  
Use these sketches as a guide but additional research is suggested to verify the facts.  Additional information may appear elsewhere in the book about a particular family.
