Madison County, Kentucky History and Biographies


Madison County was created on 22nd August 1786 out of Lincoln County and named for James Madison of Virginia. This volume contains a brief history of the county from the creation up to the time of the writing of the material in the mid-1880s. The information for this volume are reprinted from two sources, first History of Kentucky by Lewis Collins in 1882 and secondly, KENTUCKY: A History of the State by W. H. Perrin, J. H. Battle, and G. C. Kniffin in 1885. The biographical materials were submitted by various families and not just the elite ones. For this reason, most of the information should be more accurate than other sources.
