About Samuel Etter, Sr.

The town of Etterville, Missouri was named in honor of the Etter family who had lived in the vicinity for many years. A post office, called Etter, was established in 1903 when the Rock Island railroad was built through Saline Township. The post office was renamed Etterville in 1904 and remains to this day.

-------------------

Samuel Sr. and Rosannah Etter were both natives of Virginia. It is believed the Etter family was in Montgomery Co., Virginia (later part of Wythe Co.) as early as 1787 where they have been found on tax lists. By 1830, Samuel, Rosannah, 6 sons and 1 daughter, were in Anderson Co., East Tennessee.

The children of Samuel Sr. and Rosannah Etter were: DANIEL b. c/1813 m. Mary_____; JOHN b. c/1815; HIRAM b. c/1818 m. Emily A. Dresser; GEORGE b. c/1820 m. Mary A. Cotten; WILLIAM b. c/1821 m. Elizabeth Ann Hinds; EVE b. c/1823 m. (1) Joseph A. Starling (2) Gale Wyrick; and SAMUEL JR. b. 1826 m. (1) Orlena Jane Starling (2) Harriett L._____ (3) Elizabeth Dooley.

Samuel Etter Sr. died before 1850 and Rosannah lived the remainder of her life with her children in Saline township near Mt. Pleasant. The Etters homesteaded in the Pleasant Mount/Mt. Pleasant area in 1835/1836. They lived on or near an old trail across Saline township called ‘the Spring Garden road’, which existed in 1837.

During the Civil War the Etter family declared themselves Southern sympathizers and were assessed fines by the government. With roots in Virginia and East Tennessee, their hearts were with the Confederacy. As far as can be determined, they never owned slaves.
