(DNA Kit 32875)


In Barren Co., KY, were these Maddoxes:  Polly who m. 1807, Katherine who m. 1813, and Ignatius (b. 1793) who m. 1822.   We believe they were siblings of Samuel who m. there in 1815.  Also, Joseph b. 1802 MD found in the adjoining county from Samuel (Chariton in MO) in 1850 was probably his brother.  The first son of both Joseph and Samuel was named John, and the second son of Ignatius was named John, possibly their father’s name.
