The modern day Liberty is in Clay County, NE of Kansas City.

Below is from Stoddard Co rootsweb genweb (the links don't work on these place names to go to additional information, but here is the latitude and longitude, which you can look up on a modern map). The USGS maps are topographic, available from the US Geological Survey. You will find more information at the BLM-gro site than just about anywhere else if you want to find your ancestors' land purchases:

Liberty Corner Church (historical) church 364253N 0895428W Bernie
Liberty Hill Cemetery cemetery 370137N 0895535W Advance
Liberty Hill Church church 365234N 0900244W Acorn Ridge

Liberty, Township of civil 364537N 0895836W Dexter

I highly recommend the below website for anyone to use along with your research in censuses and land. You can choose the state you want on the drop down box on the left hand side...then click on the link, "(STATE)Maps and Atlases" in the little tan bar at the top. You will get an animated "visual" map that goes through the years of changes occurring in state and county boundaries.

Best of luck.
