Alton, MO, is 210 miles from West Alton, MO.
How can this be? Well, it’s simple. West Alton is west of Alton, IL, while Alton, MO, is a totally separate town.

Born on the ship that brought his family to the United States. He was a surgeon in the Mexican War and the Civil War. His father was an officer of Napoleon's Old Guard, and took part in the invasion of Russia and the battle of Waterloo.
Julius was very wealthy and owned much property. He was the founder of Bonfils, Missouri.
In 1901 he was brought to the City Hospital in St. Louis at the age of 87. He was penniless and dressed in rags and his beard was matted with dirt. He said he had been homeless for 3 months and constantly complained how people had ripped him off.

Based on 2019 population estimates and recent rates of population growth, Lee’s Summit appears to have reached the 100,000 mark.
This makes Lee’s Summit only the seventh city in Missouri’s history to contain 100,000 residents. The other six, in order of this achievement, were: St. Louis, Kansas City, St. Joseph, Springfield, Independence, and Columbia.
St. Joseph reached 100,000 in around 1900 when the city was a transportation and business hub, but then the population dropped, and it hasn’t returned to that mark since.
The eighth Missouri city that is predicted to reach 100,000 persons is O’Fallon, which currently has about 90,000 residents.
