History of Caldwell County, Missouri
As written in the 1876 Atlas of Caldwell County Missouri

Mormon Settlements

When the selection of Far West as the New Jerusalem had been approved, the Mormons came into the County in great numbers. Their settlements extended along Shoal Creek into Livingston County, and spread out over considerable portions of Daviess and Clinton Counties. They entered the greater part of the public lands in Mirable, Rockford, Kingston, and Fairview Townships. Many of them settled on land in Hamilton, New York, Davis, Breckenridge and Kidder Townships. The majority of them were farmers. The population of the County increased to about 7,000 in habitants.
