1820 Missouri Census
Please be aware, there is not a Federal census for 1820 as Missouri did not become a state until 1821.  The following is a very good substitute census compiled from tax lists.

NAME

COUNTY TOWNSHIP
David Smelsor Howard Co, MO No township listed
*Harmon Gregg Howard Co, MO No township listed
*Jacob Gregg Howard Co, MO No Township listed
*Rebeccah Gregg Howard Co, MO No township listed 
* Note:  I have listed these Gregg folks because the Smelser and Gregg families married to each other in Knox Co, TN 1797.  They traveled in a group to Missouri, then from there in a group to Texas.  This is a very strong family bond.  If researching these families, follow both for a clearer picture.
