[DNA Kit #47270]


Several have believed that John Maddox was a descendant of immigrant Alexander Maddux of Somerset Co., MD.  Others believed he descended from immigrant Samuel of St. Mary’s Co., MD, or even Cornelius, of Charles Co., MD.   However, DNA testing has shown he does not descend from any of them.  His test matches a large group from SC, one from VA, and one from MD.
