My grandfather Paschal Chenault Maddox was from Henry County KY, born Aug 13, 1887. He worked for L&N railroad, in his travels he met my grandmother, Ethel Harbin of Lowndes County AL, born abt 1895?. She had a sister Hattie in Fort Deposit AL and a cousin? Fred Harbin, which is about all I know about the Harbin Line. They married about 1908 and moved to Montgomery AL until about 1925 when they moved to Autauga Co AL where they remained. I don't know where the Chenault in my grandfather's name came from but I remeber my father saying at one time of some cousins Chenault in AL and KY but I have never been able to find a connection. I have ran across several Levi Maddoxes but haven't tied any Levi directly, I have found a Levi Maddox that was refered to as Uncle Levi that went to Texas/Kansas for awhile abt 1890's but left there and don't where he went. I think his wife's or sister's name was Lidia? My line is large and goes something like this:
1Wilson Maddox 1757 Ky
2David Maddox `1787
2Elijah Maddox 1791 KY
2Wilson Maddox JR 1793
2Thomas Gavin Maddox 1795

As you can see the line is large and the Maddoxes tended to have large families and your Levi may be in there. Most of my line came from VA/KY and went everywhere from there. This list is only a little of what I have gotten so far, don't know if I will ever get it all together, I am working with several others on connected lines. If any thing sounds familar, let me know, even if it don't, send what you got, I have several other Maddox researchers that I can send it to.

My Granfathers name was Everett Maddox b. 2/15/1902 from Ky and his parents were John W.Maddox b. 2/10/1879 and Mary Earley 9/7/1881 also from KY. John W. father was also John. That is where I seem to be stuck, any information you have would be great. You may email me at Anyone with information on this line would be great. Thanks

death of Levi MADDOX: November 14, 1874
There is misinformation on Ancestry World Tree that Levy is buried in Leesburg, Gonzales Co., TX.
There is a Levy MADDOX who died in Guadalupe Co in the Co. Probate records September 10 1897.

1880 -Guadalupe Co., TX / District No 75 - 12th of June - G.B. HALLAMON
Guadalupe Valley - District 75, Page No. 25, stamped page 299a
Dwelling #182:Household #186
Last line on page: Maddox, Mary W F 57 Widow

- the next page 26, stamped 299b was enumerated 14th June
it begins with Dwelling #189:Household #193
- the next page 27, stamped 300a was enumerated 14th June
it begins with Dwelling #198:Household #202

- the next page 28, stamped 300b was enumerated 12th June
Dwelling #182:Household #186
Line 1: MADDOX, Emoline, w f 19 TX GA AL
Line 2: MADDOX, Andrew, w m 18 TX GA AL

apparently, the pages stuck together when the enumerator was documenting households and then later went back and filled in the two pages (299b & 300a)

1900 Census Caldwell County, Texas

MY NOTE: [Tempie must be Emily/Emoline born May 1860 - if born in the month of May is correct, she was born only five months after the marriage of Levi and Mary... Tempie/Emoline may well have really been a DUNN...... more research on the death of JJ DUNN needed - did Tempie decide at 18 to probate her fathers Will with no papers??]

Maddox, Mary
Aug 19, 1823 - Mar 18, 1900 Section D
LOCKHART CITY CEMETERY [not listed on USGS/GNIS - because inside city limits???]
Located on the northeast side of Lockhart, (Caldwell County) Texas, near US 183.

Also buried there is B(enevidas) V. MADDOX which could be a daughter.
Birth: 12 Aug 1864 Death: 12 Sep 1869

My sources are simply the County documents on Rootsweb and the Census on Ancestry. Typos are always possible at any level.
