b. 1799 VA


With speculated grandfather Benjamin and father Wilson


Jesse is probable brother of William M. in Macoupin Co., IL, 1840; and Edmund in Monroe Co., MO, 1850, same age as Jesse.  They are the possible sons of Wilson and grandsons of Benjamin of Goochland Co., VA, son of John & Mary Boyd Maddox.  Much circumstantial evidence pointing to a strong relationship with Goochland Co., VA (see footnote 2)


John and Mary Boyd Maddox had son Benjamin b. 1757 and son Wilson b. 1766. 

Both were in the Revolutionary War.
