Welcome to Windsor ...

Although we found mention of Windsor during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Windsor was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

While we are confident that Windsor was located in Jefferson County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Windsor to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Windsor - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Windsor, please Contact Us.


When the people of Windsor refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Windsorites<2>

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Windsor might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Windsor would be found within the (636) area code.

Adding Windsor to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

That's the case with Windsor: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Windsor on our Genealogy Page.

Communities Also Named Windsor ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are two Missouri communities named Windsor: This one is located in Jefferson County and the other is located in Henry County.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Windsor and then turned west". While Windsor could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Windsor as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Windsor could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Windsor refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Windsor may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
