b. 1773 VA


(DNA Kit 25616)


As speculated over the past decades, the DNA of a proven descendant of William and that of a proven descendant of Nathan Maddox (DNA Kit 35166) of Bedford/Franklin Co., VA, are a perfect match, so indicate relationship.  Further, they are a perfect match to a proven descendant of immigrant John Maddox of Goochland Co., VA

 (DNA Kit 29381).  Exactly through which son is yet to be determined.


It is believed that John Wilson Maddox b.c. 1743 VA was the father of William Maddox.  This is based on a letter from Henry Bascom Maddox (A10 below), youngest of William & Catherine, dated 1891, stating "My grandfather's name was Wilson."  Further, John Maddox witnessed deeds of Nathan Maddox in Bedford Co., VA (believed to be his brother); lived on adjacent land in Bedford and Franklin Counties, VA.  John moved with William and Michael Maddox to Greenbrier/Monroe Co., (W)V, again living on adjacent lands.  All other records give his name as Wilson.  John was probably his legal first name, but he was called by Wilson his middle name.  See more under "Generation 1 Again" at the end. -1

Generation 1 Again


Although female X-Chromosome DNA is not part of our project, Rebecca Maddox is enlarged here because she was born a Maddox.  Perhaps her father and her husband's father were cousins, with her grandfather, Nathan, being a brother to William's father John Wilson Maddox.
