Jasper county missouri

Jasper County is a county located in Southwest Missouri. Its county seat is Carthage, making it one of the few counties whose largest city, Joplin, is not the county seat. The county was organized in 1841 and named for William Jasper, a hero of the American Revolutionary War.

Cemeteries of Jasper County, Missouri are located across the county. Listed here are cemetery records that have been published online.

The Jasper County Court first divided the area into three townships: North Fork, Center Creek and Marion, but later it was divided into 15 townships which remain in an unincorporated status to the present time.

A permanent Jasper County seat was chosen in March 1842 and designated by the name of Carthage. A one story single-room wooden structure with a large door in the south, was completed on June 29, 1842, and was located on the north side of the present public square in Carthage. This courthouse was later replaced by a larger two story brick & stone structure that was completed in 1854, which also functioned as the Jasper County jail.
