Abstract

Madison County is considered a prairie county, yet fully one-fourth of its area is covered with shrubs and trees of some description. The county is traversed from the west to the east by three medium-sized streams, North River, Middle River, and Clanton Creek; thus it is known as the "Three-river country." North River, with its two larger tributaries, North Branch and Cedar Creek, is situated in the north half of the county. The principal timber areas along these streams are in Douglas, Jefferson, and Union townships. Middle River flows through the central part, while its largest tributary, Clanton Creek, flows through the south half from the southwest to the northeast. The larger bodies of timber along these two streams lie principally in Lincoln, Scott, Walnut, and South Townships. Nearly three-fourths of South Township has been covered with timber. South River flows through a small portion of the southeast part. There is not much timber growing on this stream. Grand River, west of the Mississippi-Missouri divide, flows through the southwest corner of the county. Some timber is found along this stream and its branches.
