•  "The first known settler in what was to become the City of Madison, Alabama, was John Cartwright, who came here in 1818. He came to the Tennessee Valley, part of the area then known as the Mississippi Territory, and liked what he saw. He received a land grant from the federal government in a place that would first be called Madison Station, then just Madison. Later, the Cartwright property would be sold to the Palmer family, and be known as the Palmer Place." - Madison, AL
