David had a chat with Uncle John Maddox a few days ago, yielding a trove of info on John Napoleon‘s eight children, including military service, husbands, wives, occupations and circumstances of death. Steve Maddox, John’s nephew, has been another 9th-generation Maddox involved in the effort to get all this stuff down on paper, and he’s been integral to keeping us in touch with his side of the family. Too many families just let their history go unwritten. Good stuff.
Most of our research is in the permanent links now, discoverable by name of descendant. There’s plenty more to post and it’ll happen soon… such as emerging details on the family’s Civil War shenanigans. It turns out that an uncle and his nephew were held captive together in the North’s worst prison camp. More to follow.
