The town of Novinger, Missouri was named for John C. Novinger. The following is from "A Book of Adair County History" by Cyrus R. Truitt.

Novinger history began at the time when the Pacific Railroad was extending westward from Kirksville. John C. Novinger, owned the farm across which the railroad was to run. At first he objected to it's crossing his farm, but by a compromise with the officials of the railroad he agreed that it could do so, provided a depot would be built on his land and be called 'Novinger.' The station was soon to become more than a stop on the map. Forestry was the first industry of the Novinger area. Railroad ties, and other timber products were loaded on the trains at Novinger and shipped out by the trainload for several years. Small stores, a blacksmith shop and other business ventures soon were opened in the town. On January 7, 1879, Novinger was named a United Sates post office. Novinger was incorporated as a city of the 4th class on April 5, 1901.
