b. 1781 MD



[DNA Kit #53302]


Previously, some believed that Richard Maddox was a descendant of Notley Warren Maddox of Charles Co., MD, and who lived for awhile in Wilkes Co., GA.  However, his Y-DNA does not match that of a proven descendant of Notley Warren (Kit 31294).  George’s DNA matches several Maddoxes from the Abbeville, SC, area, one from Virginia, and one from Maryland
