In compiling this Directory of Towns, Villages and Hamlets Past and Present, of Howell County, Missouri, every effort has been made to include every known community in the county.
I wish to thank those people who assisted me in compiling the material for this directory:
Mr. E.J. Shelton, West Plains, who kindly reviewed this material.
He was assisted by
Mrs. Aline Chapin, Route 1, West Plains, and her husband, Russell Chapin, who were "quite a bit of help on Chapin and Torreyton".
"Mrs. Dorothea Reavis helped a lot, since she is very interested in genealogy."

And to the West Plains Public Library for information concerning Moody.
Material examined for this directory includes the following:
