Decatur County, Alabama
||This article needs additional citations for verification. (December 2009)|
Decatur County was established by the Alabama Legislature on December 7, 1821. In 1822, Woodville was selected as the county seat. Several years later, however, a survey showed the county did not have the minimum constitutional area, and Decatur County was abolished on December 28, 1825. It was divided between Madison County and Jackson County. The section added to Madison County was known informally for many years as "New Madison".
