The following is a "map" of the derivation of Taney county and it's adjacent counties from their parent counties. It's sort of a "pedigree chart" for the counties.

Here is a simple key to the map. Taney county is outlined in red and the text is the largest. Adjacent counties are outlined in orange, have a cross hatched background, and have the next largest text. Other counties that contributed territory to Taney and it's neighbors are outlined in black and have the smallest text. Any records that relate to people or places in Taney county would be in the various parent counties until the "created" date you see listed.
