Madison County came into being with the division of Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Jackson and Oglethorpe counties in 1811. James Madison, fourth president of the United States, is honored in the name. Danielsville, the county seat, is named for General Allen Daniel of the state militia. As a young captain Daniel served in the Revolutionary War and in later life donated land for the town site.
