Sandra Mackley sent me a link to the Digital Archives of the University of Missouri for a map of Ste. Genevieve County that dates from 1920 - 1930. On that map, there are three parcels of land south of the town of Ste. Genevieve that are labeled, Big Common Field of Ste. Genevieve, New Bourbon Common Field, and Grand Park Common Field of Ste. Genevieve. I sent a query to a reference librarian at the University of Missouri, but I'm not sure that I'll get a response because I'm not a student there, a Missouri resident, or an academic. I know that there is a Common Field archaeological dig that is possibly in this area but I couldn't gain much information about the dig. I'm not interested in archaeology, though - I'm curious to know what these fields were for. When were they deeded? What were they used for? What is their present status? If anyone has any information or could tell me where to look or hook me up with someone who knows something about these fields, I'd most appreciate it!
