b. 1801


With Speculated Father David b.c. 1775


(This line seems to have three separate Maddox families intermarrying.See Addendums)



[DNA Kit# 87615]


Many believe Davidís parents were William and Agnes Foster Maddox.We see widowed Agnes in Buckingham Co., VA, 1810-1840 until she is around 90 years old.They were married in Cumberland Co., VA.William was apparently born in New Kent Co., VA and lived much of his youth in Goochland Co., VA.


Ties to this family are problematic since DNA test results of the Christian Co., KY, line of James Marion Maddox do not match the Goochland Co., VA, line.David b.c. 1775, and Josiah b.c. 1801, do not show up together until 1840 in Robertson Co., TN.Are researchers correct to assume that TN David is the same as Buckingham Co., VA, David?In 1830 David was in Prince Edward Co., VA.


Family tradition has it that James Marionís father was John born in VA 1827.This is the only John in Christian Co., KY, 1860 who was b. VA.There was another John (b. KY 1832), but he was brother to mother Elizabeth Jane, whose father was Thomas B. Maddox b. 1804 VA.


Another DNA test needs to be done by another proven descendant of James Marion and John b. VA 1827.Also tests are needed for a proven descendant of Thomas B. who was maternal grandfather of James Martin, and also of Joseph W. who named a daughter Agnes, bothfound in 1830 Christian Co., KY.If interested, contact me (see below).
