John C. Maddox/Maddux research
Dear Carol,

I have some specific information taken from the wills of the John C. Maddox (1791 - 1863) who died in Putnam County, and the John Maddux (1785-1872) who died in Jasper County and whose will specifically names his wife Sarah and sons Abraham B., James L, and Simeon. I would be very glad to share this with you--please email me at

Thanks for all your hard work in establishing so many Maddox/Maddux memorials!

Due to questions about graves, I have hired a genealogist to lead a group of descendants to the Maddux cemetery in Jasper County in early May. She will map the cemetery, do grave rubbings, and verify headstones, dates, etc. We would love for you or your family members to come along. We can plan around your schedule. Since access to the cemetery is limited, this is a good chance to see the cemetery of your ancestors firsthand. There will also be several DAR officers there from a local chapter. Email me at and I will be happy to set this up. We will be using Lancaster's "Cemeteries of Jasper County" as well as "Trailing Our Ancestors" and local mappings. I am asking the landowner if we can have a vehicle transport those unable to make the walk.

hi carol,
I noticed you had a comment on Robert Plummer, is this a relative of your or just someone you researched?

Maddux Cemetery - Jasper Co GA
Hi Carol,

We have a horrible mess in the Maddux Cemetery and I am hoping that you will help me resolve. I am working with a friend who is a direct family descendant of the people buried in this cemetery. She has really good documentation and notes. what has happened is that Sarah Butts Maddux is now linked through several records (that were previously burials unknown now placed in the Maddux Cemetery) to her husband, her son, and her grandson.

I respectfully ask that you transfer the Maddox and Maddux memorials to me so we can straighten this out.

I do hope this can resolved quickly.

Kind regards
Pat Berry Deneen

Clifton Gerald Carter was married to Opal Shackleford. But there was a problem with their marriage and Clifton was killed in 1941 by a jealous husband. So he was buried in Mount Gilead Church Cemetery in Pike County where his parents are buried. Opal was buried in New Hope Church Cemetery with her parents. All the information you have on his memorial site is correct except he is not buried at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery.

Edmond Judkins
Edmond Judkins is my great great grandfather. The records show he is buried in Rosebud, Fall Co., Texas. When he record is pulled up William G Judkins marker is shown. Is this the same person? My search has indicated that Edmond is buried in Rosebud, just wondering.

John Comfort Maddox
Let's see if we can solve this Maddux situation, Carol! People not familiar with the family often get the names and relationships confused. At present my poor g-g-g-grandmother Sarah Betts Maddux is married to 4 different men in Find A Grave - one her grandson and two a father/son combination! Let's fix that. In the Maddux Cemetery in Jasper County there are now 3 John Maddux graves. The only correct one is the husband of Sarah Betts, John Maddux (no middle initial or name) (1785-1872; Somerset Co., MD). There is no one in this cemetery with the name "Maddox." So the two "John Comfort Maddox" entries should both be removed; I see no record of those names in the family, but should probably go in a Putnam County cemetery. Sarah Betts should be taken off as wife on both of those Maddox graves. I will work with Sandra and Rick on the other John Maddux dupe in the Maddux Cemetery in Butts Co. I am happy to provide documentation for these changes. Many thanks!

Stewart Floyd Greene is my father-in-law. The description of the group picture seems to indicate that George Larry Green was the spouse of Floyd's sister Eleanor. Her husband was George Mansfield Green. George Larry was her infant child who died. He is buried in Macon with a small memorial plaque at the gravesite of George and Eleanor (in the Meansville Cemetery.

Have you taken down your Find A Grave memorial for John Broadax (1749-1829) who died in Autauga Co, AL. I have been unable to locate it.

Benjamin Wills Maddux and wife Catherine
Hi Carol, I've been researching the Maddux, Agnew, Inman families and came across your memorials for both Benjamin and Catherine Maddux. I noticed that you had posted them, but did not know where they were buried. I believe I've found them. I believe they are at Bird's Chapel Cemetery in Walker Co. GA. I'm pretty certain that Benjamin Wills Maddux is posted in F.A.G. as B.W. Maddux, but with Birth: Jan. 1817 and Death: Feb. 12, 1869. There is a photo that I had been studying and believe I see it more as Birth: Jan 29, 1786. This was very exciting to me. And then when I looked to see if other Maddux are buried there, I found another memorial "Unknown" Maddux. I believe I read the first name on the stone as beginning as C A T H Maddux. I think this is Catherine Powell Maddux, Benjamin's wife!!
Check out these photos for each at 130445791 and 143606824. Not sure if Maddux is one of your family lines, but thought possibly so. I've also written the other Contributor who created those memorials for Bird's Chapel, and alerted him of yours. If we all agree that indeed these are the same, then we should merge the two and include his photos for that cemetery.
Let me know what you think of my findings. I'm excited about this.

Sion Hunt
Hello Carol, I have been working on the family group page for Sion Hunt today. I tried to find the child numbered 1. Sarah "Sallie" Hunt. I finally realized that this Sallie is actually his second wife, Sarah Penn. I have not been able to find out anything about her, but she died in 1875. She must have been married before she married Sion, but I have not found that information. I kept searching for another female child and when I saw the year of death, I realized that it was the 2nd wife.
I also worked on adding cemeteries to google earth and I have been linking find a grave to the cemeteries.
Thank you again for all of your work and for sharing!!!!

If you would kindly link your Colonel Patrick Henry Brewster with his father James 37593865 and mother Margaret 37593883, that would bring together all six Brewster brothers that served. Six, wow.

Thank you!

Mary Thorpe Harris memorial #136542913
Hi Carol, thanks for all the work you have done, the information is invaluable. Came across your post for Mary Harris wife of Edward Harris Sr. memorial #136542913, Edward and Mary are my 7th Great Grandparents. From some of the information I have come across there may be an errors here.

In the “US and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900” Edward Harris (1663-1734) married Mary Turner (1667-1734) daughter of John Turner (1641-1705) and Mary Tomlin (1645-1705) in 1685.

Also in the “US and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900” Edward Harris Jr. (1698-1739) son of Edward Harris and Mary Turner married Mary Thorpe (1675-*) believed to be the Daughter of Timothy Thorpe.

So I believe that the Mary listed in this memorial should be Mary Turner Harris.

I also show 14 children for Edward Harris and Mary Turner including the three you have listed. Although I am not 100% sure about all that I have listed. If you would like a list please let me know and I will post what I have.

I have only recently starting using Find A Grave. I signed up before I retired and did not have time. I read the instructions about having an actual photo, but I notice that some people either ignore this or placed memorials before this rule--my guess is ignore. I thought I could create a memorial that would only be visible in my virtual cemeteries, but found out that it does not work that way. Someone pointed that out to me. I wanted to have links for my relatives that are not into genealogy--this may be the only genealogy that they would use. I have some missing links and wanted to create a "holding" spot until I could hopefully find the grave.

I have some information about the Virginia Thorntons somewhere.
I am going to share the Find A Grave links with my Dickerson cousins from Elbert County.
