Description

These three volumes were created in 1915 by Madison County Recorder John Berner, who copied the original record books created by Madison County Surveyor Benaiah Robinson and his staff. The original plats were drawn during Robinson's time as county surveyor in the 19th century. The earliest plat is from 1834 (page 74 of Book B), and the latest plat is from 1857 (page 244 of Book B).
