If you look up rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/mo/crawford/maps you will find an 1872 county map which shows townships.
There were 2 Osage, Crawford Co., MO's. The first was Osage township which is the southeast corner of Crawford Co., and takes in Cherryville and Dry Creek.
The second Osage is a small place, it appears to be little more than either a crossing of 2 roads or the crossing of 2 railroad tracks. It is hard to determine on the map and the legend doesn't tell if the lines are railroad are main trails. This Osage is in Courtois township just north of the Osage township.
The area around the "town" of Osage had lead, a lead mine, iron and a stone quarry on the 1872 map. The Osage township had the same.
