 Brief History:

Ralls County is a county located in the northeastern portion of the U.S. state of Missouri.
 The county was organized November 16, 1820 and named for Daniel Ralls, Missouri state legislator.
 Ralls County is part of the Hannibal, MO Micropolitan Statistical Area, which is also included in the
 Quincy-Hannibal, IL-MO Combined Statistical Area.  Ralls County was one of several along the Mississippi River settled
 in the early years primarily by European-American migrants  from the Upper South, especially Kentucky and Tennessee.
 They brought slaves and slaveholding traditions with them, and quickly  started cultivating crops similar to those in Middle
 Tennessee and Kentucky: hemp and tobacco. They also brought characteristic antebellum architecture and culture. Ralls is
 considered one of the counties in the outer ring of what is called the Little Dixie region
