HISTORY AND GENEALOGY
This county was named in
honor of Thomas
third president of the United States. It presents a great variety of
soil and surface. " The bottoms on the Ohio, and along the principal
creeks, are a rich loam, mixed with sand, and the lofty and steep hills
near them have also a rich soil. On the table lands, back of the hills,
there is more clay; and still further in the interior a considerable
portion of the land is nearly level, covered mostly with beech timber
unfit for corn or grain, and suitable only for grass. About one half of
the county is of this character."
Madison, the county
seat of Jefferson county, is located on the Ohio, and at the terminus
of the Madison division of the Jeffersonville, Madison, and
Indianapolis railroad. It ranks among the most important river cities,
having a population of over thirteen thousand, and immense
manufacturing and commercial interests. The public improvements are
good, its educational facilities excellent. The growth of Madison has
not been rapid, but it has been substantial.
