Various members of my family went to St. Joe, Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield, West Plains and Joplin MO where they established successful businesses. My grandfather brought out many relatives to give them a start after emigration but most went to nyc after a year or so. The Missouri cities along the rivers especially were bustling with commerce and opportunities at the time they were there.
 
Another resource is the Missouri Historical Society at library@.... There is a book there called Book of Memories by Abrams which has some information about the Jews in St. Louis in a period before 1930 or so. There may be sections pertaining to other Missouri towns as well.
