 A Directory of Towns, Villages, and Hamlets of Missouri
Upon the admission of Missouri into the Union, the territory now comprising Greene County--at least by far the greater portion, the possible exception being a strip along the northern part--was in what was known as Wayne County, one of the original counties of Missouri Territory organized in 1818.
What is now known as Southwest Missouri, substantially Greene County, as organized in 1833, was formerly known as the Osage Country, being the home of the Indian tribe for which it was named.
The first subdivision of the county after its organization seemed to have been when Rives (now Henry) County was organized December 13, 1834, and the next upon the creation of Barry, January 5, 1835.
