dc.description.abstract"This study is an attempt to discover the origin of the names of towns, townships, counties, streams, and schools of twelve counties of Northwest Missouri. It is a part of a larger project in which it is hoped that the origin of place names of the entire state of Missouri may be studied and recorded. The counties included in this survey belong to the region often referred to as "Northwest Missouri". They are, namely, Atchison, Holt, Nodaway, Andrew, Buchanan, Worth, Gentry, DeKalb, Clinton, Harrison, Daviess, and Caldwell. The Platte Purchase of 1837 included Atchison, Holt, Nodaway, Andrew, and Buchanan. With one exception, Worth, these counties were settled and organized between the years 1820 and 1845, inclusive. Worth, the smallest county in the state, was set apart from Gentry in 1861. Although these counties are not the same topographically, they are a part of the prairie plains, and were largely settled by the same class of people, - an honest, industrious folk who came to this region because of its fertility of soil and cheap land. The pioneers were largely from Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and the older counties of Missouri."--Statement of the problem.eng
