[Location of Miller Co.]

My name is Dianna Hale Mattingly, and I am the new county coordinator for the Miller County MOGenWeb page (which was founded by Ted Hitt). If you see any errors on these pages or can contribute information, please let me know. If you would like to volunteer to host a county in Missouri contact Dianna Hale Mattingly.

I have newly updated ALL the cemeteries in Miller County and have added a few new cemeteries since they were originally inventoried. Also, among the new listings are MILLER COUNTY CREMATIONS AND GREENMORE MEMORIAL GARDENS - MORGAN COUNTY and FREEDOM CEMETERY - MARIES COUNTY. They are listed at the end of my Miller County Cemetery listings. Some of the cremations listings are actually burials, but I add what cemetery they are buried in since they were area residents or were at one time.

I have tried to show a special thank you to all of our Veterans by mentioning this fact and what branch they served in by each of their lisiting.

What is a Veteran? A "Veteran" - whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to the "United States of America," for an amount of "up to, and including their life." This is a great honor.

    A little history...

    Miller County, named after early Missouri Governor John Miller, was organized February 6, 1837 from parts of Pulaski and Cole Counties. It is situated twenty miles southwest of Jefferson City, the capitol of Missouri. The Osage River bisects the county. Bagnell Dam, on the western edge of the county, forms the Lake of the Ozarks.

    The first historical inhabitants of Miller County were the friendly Osage Indians. In 1822, the Indians had a village at the joining of Barren Fork and Tavern creeks, at the present Wilson Cave, named for John Wilson who later occupied the cave. The first white man to record his visits in Miller County was Zebulon M. Pike who, with a group of Indians, traveled up the Osage River, passing by the present site of Tuscumbia in 1806.

    The county seat of justice was established at Tuscumbia on land donated by James P. Harrison. The first county court session was held in the log cabin of an early settler, William Miller, located downriver from Tuscumbia.

    Major towns besides Tuscombia include Pleasant Mount, Spring Garden, Etterville, Eldon, Rocky Mount, Aurora Springs, Bagnell, Blackmer, Brumley, Capps, Faith, Iberia, Atwell, Brays, Blyse, Claxby, St. Elizabeth, Ramsey, Pleasantfarm, Ulman, Marys Home, and Brouses Bend.

    The MOGenWeb/USGenWeb Project

    In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the KentuckyGenWeb project. This grew into the USGenWeb project and eventually the WorldGenWeb effort. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. The MOGenWeb is part of that project.
