Bibliography and Acknowledgements

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:

They are:

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 staff in the Reference Department at the Springfield-Greene County Library who made rare books available for research.

And to the West Plains Public Library for information concerning Moody.

Material examined for this directory includes the following:
