Madison County


The counting of Madison County citizens began with the Iowa State Census of 1849 which listed names of heads of the household and the number of residents therein.  This was followed the next year by the 1850 Federal Census. Frequent Iowa state censuses  were taken early on and in 1885, became a decennial event through 1925.  Most of these records have been transcribed and are available on the Iowa Archives website, a digital library of the USGenWeb Project.
All Madison County Federal and State censuses are stored in the USGenWeb Census Repository. State censuses are also hosted on the IAGenWeb server. You can search all censuses for your relative using the comprehensive search box below or you can access individual censuses using the links in the table.
