As this Maddox webmaster set sail to learn about his family roots, I quickly discovered that the vast majority of the work on this family was already done-- much of it even before I was born--and certainly before I was interested.
I hit the motherload of information first with one Patricia J. Doster of North Carolina, who provided much of the early material or pointed to the way to it.  And not too long after that, John C. Maddox of Virginia wandered in with a giant Maddox lineage database --and enough names to start a very respectable colony!  And not long after that, Dot Bishop of Alabama and Georgia.  We have had an informal partnership to share with each other and with you. Others have been very active and are generally cited next to their contributions within the website's texts..
