Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Chariton, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Keytesville.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Keytesville - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Keytesville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Keytesville
