We would like to trace family lines in or around Escambia Co., if any of you can help us. In 1862 or 1872 THOMAS S. MADDOX was was born just out side of Brewton. He had 12 sib;ings. The brothers were name YANCEY, MILTON, JAMES, SILAS and WALKER. We are not sure of the sisters' names but there was a MAUDE, and a KATE. Others are listed as Will Barrow's wife, Aunt Sis Holladay, and Ed Lynn's wife. Still missing two names. The parents of this brood were SILAS G. MADDOX and ELIZABETH SNOWDEN, probably married 1840 - 1850.
We believe that Thomas Maddox's wife BEATRICE STILL was also from the Escambia Co area. Her grandparents were WILLIS MAYO and wife LAUREL /?/ and their daughter MARY MAYO married JOHN STILL. We would love to find better dates for these family members, where any of them are buried, and where they lived before the families came to this area. Thank you!!! Vangy Maddoxnk you!!! Vangy Maddox

SNOWDEN from ESCAMBIA CO., AL. My records show that James Snowden, Sr. and Mildred Kennedy Coleman Snowden were the parents of Elizabeth Snowden, b. ca 1849 AL, and who m. T.S. Maddox, Sr. Elizabeth Snowden had siblings named Walker and James (as well as my g-grandmother, Julia Ann.) Is this coincidence or could we be researching the same line?

It is SO encouraging to hear a response to a family query!
I think the Escambia County searchers are about the most dedicated of any site that I check out.

I was just going through the posted cemetery listings again last night and wondered if I should send for a death certificate for Alice Maddox Still to check on her parents. Maybe I will, unless someone else already knows. - and then your response came in - it is like ESP.

The family notes that have been handed down to me - nothing in the line of actual documentation - mention that "Willis Mayo m. Laurel,,their daughter Mary Mayo married John Still. They had 6 (?) children.. in descending order;
1). Lizzy Crawford
2). Laura King married a man named Irvin
3). Kate married a man named Jesse
4). Philip
5). Lillian
6). Elinor Beatrice Still
(this was fuzzy.. Jesse and Ivin could have been Stills and not husbands)"

These were notes from a family interview of a member now dead, so I can.t go back and clarify anything.

This is Happy Hunting!

There is an Alice Maddox, b. 24 AUG 1869, d. 16 MAR 1944 buried in Still Chapel cemetery who married C.F. Still on 12 JUL 1891. Is this part of your line?
Also, Jeff (Jefferson D. Still)5 JAN 1861 - 1 SEP 1933 m. 26 NOV 1885 Katy (Katherine) Mayo 1 JUL 1862 - 14 MAR 1917.
Katy is part of my late Uncle's family line in which my Aunt is researching. My aunt is not on-line but if you will e-mail your address and phone to me I will pass it on to her and I will get her permission to pass her's along to you. I do remember her saying talking about John Still amd his wife Mary Mayo so she may have some information she can share with you on this line. Also, Still Chapel cemetery is posted online and can be accessed from the Escambia County home page from the Records online link. Happy Hunting!

Several of the Maddox family members are buried at Fort Crawford Cemetery, East Brewton, Escambia County, Alabama. Some of the headstones have been broken due to Hurricane Ivan. If I can be of further help, please let me know.

Hi, Edwa - How exciting to receive the reply to the message which I posted so many years ago. It just proves that we should never give up.

Since 1998 I have filled in a lot of information on the Maddox family in Escambia. A great deal of it was with the help of Daisy Barron Collum who is descended through Florence Anna Maddox (1873 - 1959). My husband James Lucion Maddox is the grandson of Thomas Sumpter Maddox, Sr.

This a some of the data that we have now collected.
Children of Silas Gaines Maddox(1844 - 1924) and Elizabeth Snowden (1847 - 1931):
Kate Maddox - no further data, but the name is mentioned in early papers
Alice Maddox (1869 - 1947) m. Charlie F. Still
Mildred Elizabeth Maddox (1871 - ?) (known as Lizzie) m. Rufus Holiday
Thomas Sumpter Maddox (1872 - 1952) m. Eleanor Beatrice Still
Florence Anna Maddox (1873 - 1959) m. Wm. W. Barron
Julia Maddox ( 1876 - ?) m. Ely Pyburn
Silas G. Maddox, Jr. (1877 - 1908) m. Flora E. Kirkland
James Maddox (1879 - 1936) m. Nell Bell
Wm. Yancy Maddox (1883 - 1955) m. Lottie Bell
Walker Maddox (1884 - 1900)
Mary Maddox (1885 - ?) m. Edd H. Lynn
Milton Maddox (1887 - 1973) m. Louise Cheatam
Maude Maddox (1889 - 1920) m. Cal Williamson

This is what we have for your ggrandfather James and his family:
James born Brewton, AL 5 December, 1879 and died 12 December,1936. m. Nell Bell.
Children:
Edith Maddox m. Cass Scott
Preston Maddox m. ? Goloman
Aungus Maddox
Minnie Bell Maddox m. ? Mantel
Lottie Bea Maddox m. ? Jordan
James Mason Maddox (1905 - 1906)

Maybe we can fill in each other's lists. Thank you for the information about the cemetery. I had heard that it is pretty bad. Will write to you by private e-mail soon.
Thanks again. Mind if I think of you as Cousin, even tho' you are related to my husband? He doesn't write much, but I would like to keep in touch. Vangy
