Missouri Route 202
Route 202 is a short highway in extreme northern Missouri. It never leaves Schuyler County, its northern terminus is at the Iowa state line where it continues as Iowa Highway 202. S. Route 63 and U. S. Route 136 in Lancaster. Route 202 begins at an intersection with US 63/US 136 in Lancaster, heading west on a two-lane undivided road; the road continues east past this intersection as part of US 136. From the southern terminus, the route runs through agricultural areas with some trees. Route 202 reaches Glenwood, where it becomes South Avenue and passes near residences, intersecting Route M; the route turns north onto an unnamed road, with Route AA continuing to the west. Route 202 curves to the northwest and leaves Glenwood; the road continues through more rural areas, intersecting Route F and Route Z. After the intersection with the latter, the route heads to the north. Route 202 curves northeast and passes a few homes in the community of Coatsville before coming to its northern terminus at the Iowa border, where the road continues into that state as Iowa 202.
The entire route is in Schuyler County

Appanoose County, Iowa
Appanoose County is a county in the U. S. state of Iowa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 12,884, its county seat is Centerville. The county was a major coal-mining region. In recent decades, the state has made a mostly-unsuccessful effort to develop manufacturing as an alternate form of employment. A Rubbermaid plant was the county's largest private employer until the company announced, in June 2006, that the plant, located in the Centerville industrial park, would relocate to Winfield, Kansas in October of that year; as a result of the closure and the failure of local officials to recruit new employers, unemployment in Appanoose County has ranked among the highest in Iowa. Appanoose County was formed on February 1843, from open territory, it was named for the Meskwaki Chief Appanoose, who did not engage in war against Black Hawk, advocating peace. The present county seat was called Chaldea, was renamed to Senterville in honor of Congressman William Tandy Senter of Tennessee. In April 1848, the courthouse, constructed at the expense of $160, was put into use and served as such until 1857.
The second courthouse was opened in 1864, was burned down to the first floor during an explosive Fourth of July fireworks demonstration. The third courthouse was dedicated on May 21, 1903, remains in use. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 516 square miles, of which 497 square miles is land and 19 square miles is water. Rathbun Reservoir, created by damming the Chariton River, is its main physical feature.

Adair County, Missouri
Adair County is a county located in the northeastern part of the U. S. state of Missouri. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 25,607, its county seat is Kirksville. The county was organized January 29, 1841, named for Governor John Adair of Kentucky. Adair County comprises MO Micropolitan Statistical Area; the first permanent settlement in Adair County began in 1828. Many of the first settlers were from Kentucky, Adair County was named for John Adair, a respected Governor of Kentucky; this was 25 years after the Louisiana Purchase, seven years after Missouri was granted statehood, four years after the Sac and Fox Native American tribes surrendered their claims to the land. The original settlement was called "Cabins of White Folks," or "The Cabins," and was located six miles west of present-day Kirksville along the Chariton River; the Big Neck War: In July 1829, a large party of Iowa Native Americans, led by Chief Big Neck, returned to their former hunting grounds in violation of treaty. One of the Ioway's dogs killed a pig, some tribe members threatened the white women.
The settlers sent messengers south to Macon counties asking for help. Captain William Trammell responded with a party of some two dozen men to help. By the time of their arrival, the Ioways had left the area and moved up the Chariton into what is now Schuyler County. Trammell's force, augmented by several of the men from The Cabins and engaged the Ioway at a place called Battle Creek, killing several Native Americans including Big Neck's brother, sister-in-law, their child; the Trammell party lost three men in the skirmish, including Captain Trammell himself, one additional casualty died of his wounds shortly afterward. The surviving whites returned to the cabins, collected the women and children, headed south for the Randolph County settlement of Huntsville. A group of militia under General John B. Clark pursued and apprehended Big Neck and his braves, capturing them in March 1830. Several of them fled to the current state of Iowa; the jury found on March 31, 1830 that: "After examining all the witnesses, maturely considering the charges for which these Iowa Indians are now in confinement, we find them not guilty, they are at once discharged."
The acquittal of Big Neck seemed to have brought the war to a peaceful, if uneasy, conclusion. A few months white settlers returned to The Cabins in greater numbers than before, this time to stay permanently; the outbreak of the Blackhawk War in 1832 again caused consternation among the early settlers although all fighting was hundreds of miles away in present-day Illinois and Wisconsin. To ease fears in the area, militia units were dispatched and two small forts were constructed. One, Fort Clark, was located on high ground adjacent to The Cabins. Several miles to the northeast, another detachment of troops established Fort Matson. After months of no hostile Native American activity in the Adair County area, both forts were abandoned; the site of Fort Clark is now marked by a large boulder and plaque, while the Fort Matson site was the location for a church and its name corrupted to Fort Madison. The Fort Matson/Madison Cemetery still remains; the Adair County courthouse is a three-story Romanesque structure in the center of the Kirksville city square, completed in 1899.
The architect was Robert G. Kirsch who would also design the courthouses for Carroll, Polk and Cooper counties; the county had no dedicated courthouse from 1865 until 1899, operating out of temporary rented quarters on or near the square. The county voters approved a $50,000 bond issue in 1897 to build the current courthouse after four failed attempts between 1872 and 1896; the courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 569 square miles, of which 567 square miles is land and 2.1 square miles is water.

Philip John Schuyler was a general in the American Revolution and a United States Senator from New York. He is known as Philip Schuyler, while his son is known as Philip J. Schuyler. Born in Albany, Province of New York, into the prosperous Schuyler family, Schuyler fought in the French and Indian War, he won election to the New York General Assembly in 1768 and to the Continental Congress in 1775. He planned the Continental Army's 1775 Invasion of Quebec, but poor health forced him to delegate command of the disastrous invasion to Richard Montgomery, he prepared the Continental Army's defense of the 1777 Saratoga campaign, but was replaced by General Horatio Gates as the commander of Continental forces in the theater. Schuyler resigned from the Continental Army in 1779. Schuyler served in the New York State Senate for most of the 1780s and supported the ratification of the United States Constitution, he represented New York in the 1st United States Congress but lost his state's 1791 Senate election to Aaron Burr.
After a period in the state senate, he won election to the United States Senate again in 1797, affiliating with the Federalist Party. He resigned due to poor health the following year, he was the father of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton and the father-in-law of Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. Philip John Schuyler was born on November 20 1733 in Albany, New York, to Cornelia Van Cortlandt and Johannes Schuyler Jr. the third generation of the Dutch family in America. Before his father died on the eve of his eighth birthday, Schuyler attended the public school at Albany. Afterward, he was educated by tutors at the Van Cortlandt family estate at New Rochelle. In 1748 he began to study with Reverend Peter Strouppe at the New Rochelle French Protestant Church, where he learned French and mathematics. While he was at New Rochelle he joined numerous trade expeditions where he met Iroquois leaders and learned to speak Mohawk, he joined the British forces in 1755 during the French and Indian War, raised a company, was commissioned as its Captain by his cousin, Lt.
Governor James Delancey. In that war, he served as a quartermaster, purchasing supplies and organizing equipment. Philip was related to many illustrious contemporaries, including: Peter Schuyler, a cousin who commanded the Jersey Blues. From 1761 to 1762, Schuyler made a trip to England to settle accounts from his work as quartermaster, he began construction on his home in Albany called Schuyler Mansion, during this time. He began construction of his country estate, at Saratoga. In 1768, Schuyler began his political career as a member of the New York Assembly, serving in that body until 1775. During that time, his views came to be more opposed to the colonial government in matters of trade and currency, he was made a colonel in the militia for his support of Governor Henry Moore. Schuyler was elected to the Continental Congress in 1775, served until he was appointed a major general of the Continental Army in June. General Schuyler took command of the Northern Department, planned the Invasion of Canada.
His poor health required him to place Richard Montgomery in command of the invasion. As department commanding general, he was active in preparing a defense against the Saratoga Campaign, part of the "Three Pronged Attack" strategy of the British to cut the American Colonies in two by invading and occupying New York State in 1777. In the summer of that year General John Burgoyne marched his British army south from Quebec over the valleys of Lakes Champlain and George. On the way he invested the small Colonial garrison occupying Fort Ticonderoga at the nexus of the two lakes; when General St. Clair abandoned Fort Ticonderoga in July, the Congress replaced Schuyler with General Horatio Gates, who had accused Schuyler of dereliction of duty. In 1778, Schuyler and Arthur St. Clair were court-martialed for the loss of Ticonderoga, but were both acquitted; the British offensive was stopped by Continental Army under the command of Gates and Benedict Arnold in the Battle of Saratoga. That victory, the first wholesale defeat of a large British force, marked a turning point in the revolution, for it convinced France to enter the war on the American side.
When Schuyler demanded a court martial to answer Gates' charges, he was vindicated but resigned from the Army on April 19, 1779. He served in two more sessions of the Continental Congress in 1779 and 1780. Schuyler was an original member of the New York Society of the Cincinnati. After the war, he expanded his Saratoga estate to tens of thousands of acres, adding slaves, tenant farmers, a store, mills for flour and lumber, his flax mill for the making of linen was the first one in America. He built several schooners on the Hudson River, named the first Saratoga, he was a member of the New York State Senate from 1780 to 1784, at the same time New York State Surveyor General from 1781 to 1784. Afterwards he returned to the State Senate from 1786 to 1790, where he supported the adoption of the United States Constitution. In 1789, he was elected a U. S. Senator from New York t
A county seat is an administrative center, seat of government, or capital city of a county or civil parish. The term is used in Canada, Romania and the United States. County towns have a similar function in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, in Jamaica. In most of the United States, counties are the political subdivisions of a state; the city, town, or populated place that houses county government is known as the seat of its respective county. The county legislature, county courthouse, sheriff's department headquarters, hall of records and correctional facility are located in the county seat though some functions may be located or conducted in other parts of the county if it is geographically large. A county seat is but not always, an incorporated municipality; the exceptions include the county seats of counties that have no incorporated municipalities within their borders, such as Arlington County, Virginia. Ellicott City, the county seat of Howard County, is the largest unincorporated county seat in the United States, followed by Towson, the county seat of Baltimore County, Maryland.
Some county seats may not be incorporated in their own right, but are located within incorporated municipalities. For example, Cape May Court House, New Jersey, though unincorporated, is a section of Middle Township, an incorporated municipality. In some of the colonial states, county seats include or included "Court House" as part of their name. In the Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the term "shire town" is used in place of county seat. County seats in Taiwan are the administrative centers of the counties. There are 13 county seats in Taiwan, which are in the forms of county-administered city, urban township or rural township. Most counties have only one county seat. However, some counties in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont have two or more county seats located on opposite sides of the county. An example is Harrison County, which lists both Biloxi and Gulfport as county seats; the practice of multiple county seat towns dates from the days.
There have been few efforts to eliminate the two-seat arrangement, since a county seat is a source of pride for the towns involved. There are 36 counties with multiple county seats in 11 states: Coffee County, Alabama St. Clair County, Alabama Arkansas County, Arkansas Carroll County, Arkansas Clay County, Arkansas Craighead County, Arkansas Franklin County, Arkansas Logan County, Arkansas Mississippi County, Arkansas Prairie County, Arkansas Sebastian County, Arkansas Yell County, Arkansas Columbia County, Georgia Lee County, Iowa Campbell County, Kentucky Kenton County, Kentucky Essex County, Massachusetts Middlesex County, Massachusetts Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bolivar County, Mississippi Carroll County, Mississippi Chickasaw County, Mississippi Harrison County, Mississippi Hinds County, Mississippi Jasper County, Mississippi Jones County, Mississippi Panola County, Mississippi Tallahatchie County, Mississippi Yalobusha County, Mississippi Jackson County, Missouri Hillsborough County, New Hampshire Seneca County, New York Bennington County, Vermont In New England, the town, not the county, is the primary division of local government.
Counties in this region have served as dividing lines for the states' judicial systems. Connecticut and Rhode Island have no county level of thus no county seats. In Vermont and Maine the county seats are designated shire towns. County government consists only of a Superior Court and Sheriff, both located in the respective shire town. Bennington County has two shire towns. In Massachusetts, most government functions which would otherwise be performed by county governments in other states are performed by town or city governments; as such, Massachusetts has dissolved many of its county governments, the state government now operates the registries of deeds and sheriff's offices in those counties. In Virginia, a county seat may be an independent city surrounded by, but not part of, the county of which it is the administrative center. Two counties in South Dakota have their county seat and government services centered in a neighboring county, their county-level services are provided by Fall River Tripp County, respectively.
In Louisiana, divided into parishes rather than counties, county seats are referred to as parish seats. Alaska is divided into boroughs rather than counties; the Unorganized Borough, which covers 49 % of Alaska's area, has equivalent.

1890 United States Census
The Eleventh United States Census was taken beginning June 2, 1890. It determined the resident population of the United States to be 62,979,766—an increase of 25.5 percent over the 50,189,209 persons enumerated during the 1880 census. The data was tabulated by machine for the first time; the data reported that the distribution of the population had resulted in the disappearance of the American frontier. Most of the 1890 census materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and fragments of the US census population schedule exist only for the states of Alabama, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, the District of Columbia; this was the first census in which a majority of states recorded populations of over one million, as well as the first in which multiple cities – New York as of 1880, Philadelphia – recorded populations of over one million. The census saw Chicago rank as the nation's second-most populous city, a position it would hold until 1990, in which Los Angeles would supplant it.
The 1890 census collected the following information: The 1890 census was the first to be compiled using methods invented by Herman Hollerith and was overseen by Superintendents Robert P. Porter and Carroll D. Wright. Data was entered on a machine readable medium, punched cards, tabulated by machine; the net effect of the many changes from the 1880 census: the larger population, the number of data items to be collected, the Census Bureau headcount, the volume of scheduled publications, the use of Hollerith's electromechanical tabulators, was to reduce the time required to process the census from eight years for the 1880 census to six years for the 1890 census. The total population of 62,947,714, the family, or rough, was announced after only six weeks of processing; the public reaction to this tabulation was disbelief, as it was believed that the "right answer" was at least 75,000,000. The United States census of 1890 showed a total of 248,253 Native Americans living in the United States, down from 400,764 Native Americans identified in the census of 1850.
The 1890 census announced that the frontier region of the United States no longer existed, that the Census Bureau would no longer track the westward migration of the U. S. population. Up to and including the 1880 census, the country had a frontier of settlement. By 1890, isolated bodies of settlement had broken into the unsettled area to the extent that there was hardly a frontier line; this prompted Frederick Jackson Turner to develop his Frontier Thesis. The original data for the 1890 Census is no longer available. All the population schedules were damaged in a fire in the basement of the Commerce Building in Washington, D. C. in 1921. Some 25 % of the materials were presumed another 50 % damaged by smoke and water; the damage to the records led to an outcry for a permanent National Archives. In December 1932, following standard federal record-keeping procedures, the Chief Clerk of the Bureau of the Census sent the Librarian of Congress a list of papers to be destroyed, including the original 1890 census schedules.
The Librarian was asked by the Bureau to identify any records which should be retained for historical purposes, but the Librarian did not accept the census records. Congress authorized destruction of that list of records on February 21, 1933, the surviving original 1890 census records were destroyed by government order by 1934 or 1935; the other censuses for which some information has been lost are the 1810 enumerations. Few sets of microdata from the 1890 census survive, but aggregate data for small areas, together with compatible cartographic boundary files, can be downloaded from the National Historical Geographic Information System.
