Your County Coordinator is Kris. I am a volunteer. While I may contribute information to the site, I do not live in Saline County and cannot help you with your research there. I maintain the website and manage submissions from other researchers -- like you.
All of the information here is provided free for personal use, but may not be used commercially or sold without the specific permission of both the original submitter and the County Coordinator.
Saline County was organized November 25, 1820, (effective January 1, 1821) from Cooper County and named for its numerous salt springs. Bordered on the north by the Missouri River, Saline County was considered to be part of "Little Dixie" in the antebellum years.
Many, many thanks to Betty Brooks, C. J. Ellis, and the other previous county coordinators for all of the effort they have put into this site over the years.
