St. Clair County is a county located in the U.S. state of Missouri. As of 2000, the population was 9,652. Its county seat is Osceola[1]. The county was organized in 1841 and named for Gen. Arthur St. Clair, governor of the Northwest Territory. St. Clair was also the 9th President of the United States in Congress Assembled. Under his Presidency, the Northwest Ordinance and United States Constitution were passed.[2]=

According to the April 1907 issue of The Century Magazine, for well over thirty years, dating from 1870, St. Clair County was in open rebellion against the government of the United States, refusing to pay interest on bonds which it had issued to assist in the building of a railroad, which was never built.
