Madison County




Shown below are veterans of the Indian Wars known to have resided in Madison County, Iowa. The list includes those who served between the Civil War and about 1890.
County Coordinator's Note:  Little effort has been made by anyone to compile comprehensive lists of those who served in the Indian Wars.  The County Coordinators are therefore reliant on descendants for obtaining data for this list.  Your inputs are encouraged and welcome.
