This is a list of published items dealing with Morgan County. Most of them were found by working through the indexes to the volumes of the Missouri Historical Review; some come from other sources. Since the list comes from my own research, there is a bias towards the Gravois Mills area. I have not yet seen most of them myself. If you have more sources, or if you have comments on any of the sources here, please send them in.
