ISBN 978-1-936091-30-0, 8½x11", softbound book, 94 pages, includes CD with custom maps: 13 quad maps dealing with this content.

Madison County, Kentucky is where famous pioneer Daniel Boone lived and built Fort Boonesborough, which is now a state historic site. Many of the recipients of the land grants in Madison County would have known Daniel Boone and some of their grants adjoined a grant issued to Boone. The site of Boonesborough Township, along the Kentucky River is included in the custom Ford Quad Map.

The objective of this work was to identify any and all of the early land patents that were located (partially or completely) within present-day Madison County, Kentucky and to prepare an alphabetical index of these patents arranged by the name of each grantee. The patent database from which the Madison County patents were to be identified was the Virginia Series and Old Kentucky Series of patents for the State of Kentucky that are housed at the Kentucky Secretary of State Land Office in Frankfort, Kentucky. Confirmation that a patent was located within Madison County (completely or partially) was to be established by creating a series of maps depicting the approximate location of each patent within the county. While more than 600 patents have been identified as being in Madison County, vacant spots on the maps suggest that there may be others not identified by this research. Difficulties encountered in placing the patents on the maps, as described in the Cautionary Notes Regarding the Grant Maps section, leads one to conclude that a high degree of accuracy in locating each patent may not be possible, and that the patent locations shown on the maps should be considered approximate.
