B.C. 1797


With Speculated father, Nathaniel


Nathanielís family had connections with Adams Co., OH, where probable son Abraham (b. 1797) married.Most, if not all, of the Maddoxes in Adams Co. had connections with Nathan Maddox of Bedford Co., VA.Was my Nathaniel named after him?A DNA test will give solid evidence that this is probably the case.


Nathaniel Maddox was with Dennis Maddox in the 1810 census of Greenup (later Carter) Co., KY, same age category.Dennis Maddox had been in Livingston Co., KY, in 1800.In 1840 Livingston Co., KY, was Revolutionary War veteran, Nathaniel Maddox.Was this the father of my probable ancestor Nathaniel b.c. 1775?
