Madison Co. Records Center updates
- Lots of Jackson Co. folks have roots in Madison Co. as well.
On the Madison Co. Treasures page, Probate case files have had additions
as has the Miscellaneous probate file. January - February 1912 marriages are
added. Marriages 1920 - 1924 are complete and edited. There is a great photo
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 Woodville
(in Jackson Co.)
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
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
for Madison county. The History section also has new maps within the Elk Co.
Decatur Co. files. The Marriage Indexes and Bride's Indexes 1809 - 1899 are
updated to reflect the more than 300 corrections made from found original
volumes C and D.
These can be viewed at:
I hope each of you enjoys the above as I'm tired of typing and coding.
Y'all come visit the Madison County Records Center. Location is third floor
the library next to the elevator.
