    Brenda, thank you for bringing that post to my attention. I haven’t yet had time to delve into Saponitown archives…… with winter on us, I will be housebound and on-line more often.

    My father’s Reed is SARAH REED b. 1775 d. 9-26-1854. She was married on 9-5-1790 to AMBROSE N. COX SR. b. 1772 d. 1848 Montgomery Co, Va…….. I think (It’s in my notes somewhere) I do not have parents for either one.

    peace

    Ken

    btw…….. saw my mother’s BEASLEY surname in that link also as one of headmen

    Bill,

    I was searching for one of my older posts and accidentally searched on my last name rather than my user name and came across an old post of yours. Anyway, I, too, have Maddox’s from Kentucky. The farthest that I have them traced back is my 3rd Great-Grandfather. His name was Elias (or E.F.) Maddox. He was born about 1810 in Kentucky. In the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census records, he was in Oldham County.

    Stacey,

    I’d have to look up Elias (sounds familiar) but only to determine how much cousin we are. The Oldham County MADDOX line is the same line as mine who were next door in Henry Co, Ky. It goes back into the early 1600s in the Maryland Colony.

    Bill,

    That’s neat. Does that mean these lines are from Wales?

    Originally, yes, the surname is Welsh. But they stopped off in Albermarle, Orange & Franklin Counties., Va, on the way to Ky.

    Per “Jefferson Co., Ky Marriages, Volume 3”, c.1941 by The Filson Club:

    Elias MADDOX marr’d America SMITH. Father Daniel SMITH, consents in writing (“X”). Bond: Allen SMITH.

    License & Bond: June 30, 1841.

    Marriage: July 1, 1841.

    Didn’t find what I thought I had on Elias, but I “think” his father is Wilson Maddox Sr., d. Shelby Co., Ky in 1820s or 1830s – forget which.

    I believe this to be the same Wilson Maddox, Sr.:

    Franklin Co., Va Marriage Records (Family Tree Makers):

    Wilson Maddox marr’d Elizabeth RICHARDS, April 11, 1796.

    Wilson Maddox is listed on the Shelby Co., Ky Tax List dated August 7, 1800.

    On the same Tax list for Shelby Co., is Dan Maddox, relationship unknown.
