Sellers in Missouri
        chickflet <>

     The Mississippi River, 500 miles of which is the eastern border of Missouri, was 
first seen by white men in 1541 when the Spanish explorer, Hernando deSoto, saw the mighty river.  One hundred thirty two years later, two French explorers,
Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet, were the first white men to see the Missouri
River.  In 1682, another French explorer, Rene-Robert Cavelier La Salle, took
possession of the section as part of Louisiana and claimed it for France.  A Catholic mission
was established on the present site of St. Louis about 1700.  The firstpermanent Missouri

settlement was established about 1750 by the French.  It was located along the Mississippi River about 50 miles south of St. Louis and was called Sainte

     The first actual American settlement in Missouri was in 1787 when John Dodge

established himself in Ste. Genevieve County.  He was followed there by
Israel Dodge in 

1790 and three years later by Dr. Jesse Bryan.

     From 1682 until 1803 control over the Missouri section was passed back
and forth 

between France and Spain.  In the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, ownership
passed to the 

United States.  In 1805 Missouri became part of the Territory of Louisiana
and remained 

so untio 1812 when it became Missouri Territory.  Most of its early
settlers came from 

Kentucky and Virginia, with some from North Carolina, South Carolina,

Pennsylvania and Tennessee.  It was not until 1815 through various peace
treaties that 

Indian tribes halted raids on white settlers.

     Missouri became the 24th state in 1821.
