      Our site has several updates. Marriages for 1907 have been
      uploaded. A
      "Brides Index 1809 - 1899" has begun with bride's surnames A - D online.
      new "Miscellaneous Court Records" has just had about 20 unindexed wills
      with more to be added next week.

        Today, while working with the probate estate packets, I came across
        organizational letterheads we have not encountered before. We are hoping

        someone in internet land can help enlighten us about these two
        organizations. I
        have temporarily uploaded them for those who may be interested to:

        On the Madison Co. Treasures page, Probate case files have had
        as has the Miscellaneous probate file. January - February 1912 marriages
        added. Marriages 1920 - 1924 are complete and edited. There is a great
        of the south side of the square in 1867 that just blows me away!
        I have also added a Civil War soldier's letter addressed from
        while on the Rail Road. He was a Union officer from Wisconsin and was
        concerned about the treatment of fugitive slaves. This letter to his
        wife ended up in
        the hands of Abraham Lincoln and is now in the Library of Congress.
        The above can be found at

        The Madison Co. Records Center home page has slowly been getting a
        facelift. New to this page is an 1865 letter from Jeremiah Clemens to
        Abraham Lincoln. Clemens had previously served as Alabama's U. S.
        Senator. He was
        from Madison Co. and openly opposed secession. There are also three new
        period maps and, thanks to Louise Thedford, the complete set of 36
        township maps
        for Madison county. The History section also has new maps within the Elk
        Co. and
        Decatur Co. files. The Marriage Indexes and Bride's Indexes 1809 - 1899
        updated to reflect the more than 300 corrections made from found
        volumes C and D.
        These can be viewed at:

        I hope each of you enjoys the above as I'm tired of typing and
        Y'all come visit the Madison County Records Center. Location is third
        floor of
        the library next to the elevator.
