b.c. 1645





 b. 1824


With Joseph’s speculated father William Theobolt Maddox


[DNA Kit 44459]



DNA test results pending.  However, circumstantial evidence is so strong, we believe this line belongs to immigrant Samuel Maddox b.c. 1646 Wales or Maryland.


Strong circumstantial evidence points to Joseph’s father being William Theobolt Maddox, a descendant of Samuel Maddox b.c. 1646 of St. Mary’s Co., MD.  Still searching for a will or other documentary proof for Joseph’s father.  Also missing proof of relationship to William’s father, John b. 1767 Charles Co., MD, and his father John b. 1728 Charles Co., MD.
