Can anyone possibly tell me where the original western boundary of Madison County was, before Garrard County was established? I am doing some genealogical research on an ancestor of mine, and a lot seems to be hanging on this question. His name is William Miller, and he is listed as residing in Lancaster, Garrard County, in 1810, and he is also on the 1800 Garrard tax census, so I am assuming he is also in Lancaster there as well.
Would the region that is now Lancaster have originally been in Madison County or in Lincoln County? That is the question. Thanks for any help you can give.
