I, too, am interested in the Maddex/Maddox family from Huntington & Wells Counties. My record show the spelling as Maddox. There is a Leander E. Maddox, b. 1851, who was a promenant doctor in the area. He was written about in the "Biographical and Historical Record of Adams and Wells Counties, Indiana" by Lewis Publishing Co. in Chicago, 1887. pp. 738. He married Mary Emile Newman in 1850, daughter of John & Lydia (Stanton) Newman (my great-great grandparents), sister of Willard Allen Newman (my great-grandfather).

The Statnton given name mentioned by Janet Smith about the quilt she was working on might be of interest since Lydia's maiden name was Stanton. She & brother, Riley, came from North Carolina. Riley married John's sister, Sarah. I found both families living togethre in the 1850 Census.
