(Race: Caucasian)

"Mattox" could be a Welsh name because of the "ox."

The Mattox family are thought to have sailed from England in the early 1600s. Grandfather Robert Clark Mattox believed that the family originated in Fauquier County, Virginia. An ancestor of George Washington, Col. John Washington, was given land on Mattox Creek, Virginia, in 1659. If there was a Mattox Creek in Virginia that early, it appears that the Mattox family must have been very early settlers, possibly in the 1600s.

There is a map showing Mattox Creek and Mattox Farm just off the Potomac River, north of the intersection of route 205 and 3, about 33 miles east of Fredericksburg, VA.

My father, Ronald (photo), has always said we are part English and part something else.

Jeff's family tree

See the Lana Mattox Mountford section (below) for a possible link to my tree.

Lana Mattox Mountford

(Submitted:13 Nov 1996)

Research by my aunt has indicated that the family traces its roots back to Denmark in the middle-ages, to a Prince Maduc, and that all variations in spelling (Maddox, Madducks, Maddocks, etc.) are variants of this original source. There appear to be Irish and Welsh branches of the family. Our line springs from the Welsh.

It appears we arrived from England in the early 1800s as part of the early Methodist influx following the Wesley brothers. Originally settling in Virginia, the family moved to Indiana sometime in the 1830s or 40s, and then to Kansas in the 1860s. They settled in Liberal, KS, and donated the land for the first Methodist church there.

My great-grandfather, William Herbert, settled in Bourbon County (southeastern Kansas) in the 1870s. My grandfather, Paul John Mattox, ran the newspaper in Bronson, KS (the Bourbon County seat). One of his brothers was killed in the Spanish-American war, NOT as a soldier, but as a "gun-runner" for the Spanish side (every family has at least one "black sheep"!). Paul John Mattox had four children: George William (deceased), John Paul (my father, deceased), Margaret (my aunt), and Charles Herbert (my uncle, deceased).

                   born: Kansas
  grandfather:  Paul John Mattox (1884-1970)
                   (Bronson, KS)

  great-great GF:

Other Tidbits:

  1. We tend to be quite tall, including the women.
  2. We have what we affectionately call the "Mattox nose."
  3. The Mattoxes seem to live a long time.
  4. We tend to be artistic and/or musical. I majored in piano performance in college, and I'm heavily involved in vocal music now.
  5. My Uncle Charles has a museum named after him in Albuquerque -- the Charles Mattox Children's Museum.

George Mattox

(Submitted: 7 Nov 96, updated: 24 Jan 97)

I was born in 1980. I live in São Paulo, Brazil, in South America. I belong to the Brazilian branch of the family. My grandfather is American but he lives here in Brazil. His name's Robert Taliaferro Mattox. He was at the second world war in the Pacific. Our family is from Indiana.

The earliest Mattox I know of in my family was a man called Peter Mattox, but his surname was written: MATTOCKS. See the family tree for more details. Well, this man had 12 childrens, but I only found out one name, Mr. William Wallace Rufus (or Ruthvan) Mattox. This one had four kids: Elmer, Ernest, Oren and grandfather's grandfather Fred Phinney Mattox. Fred went to Chiuaua, Mexico. He maried with Ima Mclane George and had more three little kids: Grace, Howard and George Wallace Mattox. This one is my great grandfather. George went to Cuba and had three more children: Frederick (who died in 1985), Eleanor (who lives somewhere in the Middle America) and my grandfather, Robert Taliaferro Mattox (Bob). My grandfather came to Brazil with his brother, sister and his parents and later, in December 13 in 1949, right after the war, he married with Lia, my granmother. They had three kids: George, Richard and Robert Jr (my dad), but only my dad survived. The other two died when they were only little kids. My father married with my mother (Alice ) and then I and my little brother John were born.

I built the Mattox House Motel in Green Forest, Arkansas in 1972. I have traced our family history back to Cornelius Maddox born in Wales in 1660. Some of my ancestors are: Michael (Mial) and Reddin B. Mattox of N.C. and William Henry and Ruffus David Mattox of Carroll County, Arkansas.

     My name is Gander Mattox.  I currently reside in Kansas City, MO, but
     originated out of Elberton, Ga.  Below, I will list a bit of my 
     genealogy:  (My race is African-American!)

     William Mattox - (White) Celebrated Soldier, moved from Virginia to
                      Elberton, Ga. - Children - 1, Will 
       Will Mattox -  (White) Son of William Mattox, took over "Mattox
                      Plantation" after the death of his father, William. He
                      was know to have housed a number of runaway slaves from 
                      time to time.  It is very possible that the cabin used 
                      may have been later called "The Mattox Cabin" Children - 
                      4, at least one of which was (African American, Jack).
         Jack and Mary Mattox - (African American) One of four children     
                      belonging to Will Mattox. - Children - 1, Wyatt
            Wyatt and Mary Mattox - Only child of Jack and Mary.

                    Blenda Louvenia - 1 child
                    Corliss Magnolia/Bryan Armstead - 1 child
                       Bryan Armstead, Jr.
                    Rembert Charles/Cynthia - no children

                 Early Plumer - died as a child
                 Sarah Jo
              John Henry - 2 children
                 Mattie Louvenia
              George Washington - Announce his wedding and family did not
                 like the idea and was not about to allow it to happen.  He    
                 walked away and told them that they would never see him 
                 again.  That was in the 1890s.  A friend or relative saw and 
                 spoke with him about 10 to 15 years later in Chattanooga, TN. 
                 That may explain some of the Mattoxes in the Tennessee and 
                 Kentucky area.
