b.c. 1758


[DNA Kit 58994]



The will of Nathan Maddox’s father-in-law is registered in Charles Co., MD (WB A1-10, 1788-1791, pg. 537, Stephen Robey), and lists his daughter Micheal Maddox and son-in-law Nathan Maddox.  Some have believed that Nathan was son of James and brother of Ignatius found in Charles Co., MD, and Miami Co., OH.  James’ will of 1798 in Charles Co., MD, designates that Nathan continue in James’ home and take care of little brother John until John becomes 21, at which time he would turn the home over to John.  Ignatius left a will in Miami Co., OH, contents unknown.


DNA of this line does not match that of Alexander as some had thought it would, despite the ux spelling.  It does match immigrant Samuel of St. Mary’s Co., MD, a few of whom moved to Charles Co., MD.

Nathan being the son of Quaker Joseph of Chester Co., PA, and Wrightsboro, GA, with a daughter Chloe,  was eliminated because (1) There were two Nathans in Miami Co., OH, about the same age in 1820;  (2)  For my Nathan to be a son of Joseph, Nathan would have had to be born around the 1740s, making Nathan in his 40s before having children; (3) The will of Nathan is registered in Montgomery Co., and his Revolutionary War grave is also found there (Quakers did not go to war); (4) Nathan’s will lists Michel as his wife, as do MD records.
