Old Clinton and Jonesburg Monroe Co Missouri

Old Clinton and Jonesburg are lost pioneer villages in Wash. Twp, being referenced as Somerset and Northfork in later years. Little is known about their very early history. Albums contain pics or ideas on the locations of structures in the villages. Most of my pics during walk-abouts of an area are left in sequence of which they were taken, thus their will be series of pics of an area and often 180-360 degree pans at stops and zooms of an interest area. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com
