Historical Townships of Jefferson County, Missouri
Information Compiled by Mona Houser
Page Compiled by John W. Pierce


The table below was created from information in a July, 1999 note from Ms. Mona Houser to the Jefferson County, Missouri mailing list.

Ms. Houser's July, 1999, comment about the township names:

"It is a listing of the Township and Range numbers and what Political Township (Precinct) they were in. The political townships were changed about 10-15 years ago, but I am here using the more historical names.

"I don't have a map that shows exactly where the old political boundaries are, so please use this only as a guideline."
NB: Within political townships, the survey townships are listed from northwest to southeast.
