We regret that we are unable to
perform personal research for anybody.


Madison County History
The county was named after the Madison family who owned land along the Rapidan River.
President James Madison is a descendant of that family.

A significant portion of western Madison County is within Shenandoah National Park, including Old Rag, one of its most popular tourist destinations, and Rapidan Camp, the presidential retreat built by Herbert Hoover.
