          Madison County was taken from Chenango county in 1806, and named after James Madison, president of the United States. Greatest length N. and S. 33 miles, greatest breadth E. and W. 32 miles. Centrally distant from New York 250 miles, and from Albany 108 miles. The surface of the county is much diversified. The middle and southern towns are more or less uneven and hilly; but the northern is more level. In the northern part much wheat is produced: the southern is better adapted to grass. The county is generally well watered. The route of the Chenango canal follows up the Oriskany, and crosses thence into the Chenango valley.
