Karen Smith again. Have you been able to determine the parents of Gordin Maddox? Could it be John? (married to Mary Madeline Southerland? John is buried in the Maddox family cemetery in Shelby County. Also in that small cemetery, Notely Maddox is twice listed. One born 1731-1820 and another 1804-1893 (this one married to Priscilla 1807-1894). I feel this Maddox cemetery is too coincidental and should be a connection to our Gordin. Reminder: my grandfather, Clay Smith's mother was Jane Maddox.
