b. 1822 OH


With Probable Father Lazarus



It is believed that Lazarus was son of Revolutionary War soldier Zorobable Maddux.Lazarusí death record in the 1850 mortality schedule states that he was born in Kentucky 1785.Zorobabel was in Mason (later Fleming and Lewis) Co., KY, in the late 1700s dealing in land.In 1820 Zorobabel was in Pickaway Co., OH living near Lazarus.We have yet to find proof of Zorobabelís children as he seems to have died owning no estate and therefore had no will.DNA testing will help prove this.


Zorobabel was b. Worcester Co., MD 1753.His father was Bell who was b. Somerset Co., MD 1715.His father was Thomas b. Somerset Co., MD, 1679.His father was Alexander b. Northampton Co., VA, 1654.His father was Alexander b. prob. England 1613.And his probable father was Thomas who came from London to Jamestown in 1620.This line always spelled their name ux; however, Lazarusí descendants used the ox spelling.
