Three Boone County, Missouri, Plat Maps
Showing the Land Patents of Thomas THOMPSON et al.
Photocopies of three Boone Co., MO, plat maps were kindly sent to me by my aunt, Betty Ann (Matthiesen) Cogliati.  These photocopies appear to be from a book described  by the following source:

Nadine Hodges, Mrs. John Vineyard, & Mars. Howard W. Woodruff.  1968.  Missouri Pioneers:  County and Genealogical Records.  Vol. II.  Self-published, Kansas City, MO, which states on p. 17:
 
BOONE COUNTY - ORIGINAL LAND PATENTS
This book, un-numbered and with no identifying letter, is kept in the vault in the office of Recorder of Deeds.  This is a large book of plats...  The compiler's aim was primarily to present as many early land patents as possible, from the earliest until about 1833...

I have made diagrammatic maps of these three plats, and I have made every-name indices to them.  The indices in Hodges et al. were very incomplete, mostly because they excluded patents after 1833, but in part because they simply appear to have missed some (e.g., Thomas Thompson's 1821 patent in T48N.R13W):
 

Township 48 North - Range 13 West Go to Map Go to Index
Township 50 North - Range 11 West Go to Map Go to Index
Township 51 North - Range 13 West Go to Map Go to Index

The maps were reduced to 8½x11 in the photocopies, and each had a column of Sections missing.  Still, I've reproduced what there is in the form of HTML tables.  A table is not as pretty as a graphic image, but JPGs of these maps would be huge files, so I'm opting for a fast download as opposed to pretty.

the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) is a system where land is described by Aliquot, Section, Township, and Range.  In the PLSS System, a Township consists of 36 one-mile-square Sections.  Here is the pattern of section numbers:
 

6 5 4 3 2 1
7 8 9 10 11 12
18 17 16 15 14 13
19 20 21 22 23 24
30 29 28 27 26 25
31 32 33 34 35 36

It is a limitation of HTML that I cannot super-impose the Section numbers in the diagrammatic maps linked above, so I have tinted alternate Sections in the pattern shown in this diagram.
