Oldest Dwelling in Madison County

Jonathan Alder (1773-1849), first white settler in Madison County, was captured by Indians in Virginia in 1781. He was adopted and lived as a Mingo Indian; then re-united with his family in 1805. This cabin, built by Alder in 1806, was originally located one mile north at Lucas Road. Alder is buried 100 yards northeast at the rear of Foster Chapel Cemetery.
