Remember there was no Jefferson City in the 1800s. "Cty" vs. "Co."

We need to be careful reading other people's notes and copying their files. If we wrote out the word City and used "Co" for County it would save a lot of problems.

Another problem is the newbies who are collecting names by clicking and merging on Ancestry Trees who know nothing about Jefferson County. They are given the option of "Jefferson City" in the drop-down menu. Not knowing any better they are clicking on that for people who never lived north of the river in their lives.

Thanks for checking your files.

Still looking for all EDMONDS before 1900.
