Madison County, Missouri

A Proud Member of the Genealogy Trails Family

Madison County was organized  December 14, 1818 and was named for President Madison.

The county was formed from Cape Girardeau and Ste. Genevieve.

The first county seat was St. Michaels, but later moved to Fredericktown, 1819.

My name is Frances and I am your volunteer website host for this county.
