This book is just what I was looking for. It offered me a nice little narrative offering insight into the preaching of my ancestor, Rev. Still, (around 1840) as well as a helpful social and economic on-the-ground view of northern MO at that time.

The autobiography of Benjamin G. Moss. pg. 1907-1909, contains at least five factual errors including his own birth date and the name of his great-grandfather. Be wary of it as a genealogy source; it's a typical subscription book of its time.
