Historical Sketches and Reminiscences of Madison County, Indiana [2 volumes]


A detailed history of the early events of the pioneer settlement of the county and many happenings of recent years, as well as a complete history of each township, to which is added numerous incidents of a pleasant nature, in the way of reminiscences and laughable occurrences.

This is a painstakingly rendered and richly detailed history of Madison County, its individual townships, and the city of Anderson, the county seat. The authors' informative but casual tone infuses the text with a charming, fireside quality, endearing Madison County and its inhabitants to the reader. Biographical sketches cover notable county residents. A scarce and important local history publication on the Midwest. Original full name and subject index.
