Boone County, Missouri Obituaries, 1892-1901


Home to nearly 30,000 people in 1900, Boone County was created in 1820, just a year before Missouri became a state. At the turn of the century, the Columbia Missouri Herald was the most important newspaper of the county and the five nearby counties of Audrain, Callaway, Howard, Cooper, Monroe and Randolph. This database is a collection of nearly 6000 obituaries published in the newspaper between 1892 and 1901. Researchers will find the name of the deceased, date of birth or age, and the issue date of the obituary. Locations in the birth field indicate birthplace. In addition, the newspaper, in 1892, began running an "In History" section where obituaries from 1819-1841 were reprinted. Copies of the original newspaper can be obtained via inter-library loan from the State Historical Society of Missouri in Columbia for a nominal handling charge. To those seeking ancestors from Missouri in the late 1800's, this can be a useful source of information.
