John C. Maddox
The Maddox Family
I am the daughter-in-law of William Addison Mattox III (b. 8 Oct 1925 St. Louis MO). I have lots of names and dates back to Valentine Mattox and Nathaniel Shrewsbury, but not much documentation.
I am from Ruston La. but currently i live in Fresno, CA. Hy father is Sam Archie Mattox. We are told that we originated from Virginia and South Carolina. I am 52 years old I retired from the Air Force in 1988 where I spent 22 years. I am now a transportation officer for General Service Administration that is part of the federal government. (I am Afro-American.)
My name is Kris Stephens and I am helping my mother to do her family tree. Her maiden name was Mattox. She was a Ruth Maxine Mattox born on March 12, 1932 in Pt. Pleasant, WV. We have found out that a Christopher Maddox (spelling changed to Mattox) came over from Wales in the late 1700s. He was a member of one of Daniel Boone's last surveying parties. That was in 1789. He was in VA, but went to Kentucky later on.
He was married twice. His second marriage is where are family comes in. He had a son Tobias that was born in 1791 and he died in 1863. One of his children was a Josiah W. Mattox who married Susan Emily Vance. They had 11 children: Alexander (Alec) Mattox, William E., Tobias Whittaker (Whit), Susan, Sarah (everyone called her Kate), Barbara (called her Debra), Matthew Joseph (Joe), Sauel, George Andrew, Robert Ira, and Gideon Oliver.
In the Tobias line, they had a son with that name throughout Until the Civil War when Tobias L. Mattox died in the battle of Cedar Creek. This is where his brother named one of his sons Tobias and it came down through my mother's family. Her father was Tobias Otmer, his oldest son was William Tobias, and [there are] two more generations after that. They live in WV. We do have much more, because we went through all Josiah children's childrens.
I live in Northern Ohio, near Fremont.
My name is Gregory Mattox. There is a large Mattox family in Southern California. This family was originally from Indiana. My grandparents, Prof. Malcom Mattox and Dawn (deceased), moved their family out here to CA. Their children include: John M., Glenn M., Phil M. (listed, I think, on your webpage), Mike M., Jim M., Patricia O'Hare and Pam Bova.
I am the son of Glenn and Nancy Mattox in Orange, CA. I have two siblings: David and Christy. I am twenty-five years old and am much interested in the history of the Mattox family. (I am going to law school in the fall.)
My name is Steve Mattox, I have a wife Jennifer and daughter Georgia. We live in Seattle, Washington. My parents, Larry and Regina Mattox, live in southern California, Hemet to be exact. I have a brother, Chuck, who lives in San Fransisco, and two sisters, Shelley and Cyndi, both living in Southern California. My parents are both from Iowa, Larry from Ceder Falls and Regina from Marne.
My family and I live in Knoxville Iowa. I'm a supervisor for the 3M co. Most of my relations come from the Pontiac IL. area. My grandfather was Virgil and my dad was Melvin.

I am Rick L. Mattox from Cynthiana, KY which is about 25 miles north of Lexington, KY. I see another Rick L. Mattox listed. I am also and Electrical Engineer, just like the one listed. Wow! There are several Mattox's in this area. My father's family was rather large (11) and there are now many great and great great children of Henry Mattox (my grandfather). My father Harold J Mattox is a Methodist Minister as are many of the elders in my family.
My grandfather, Henry, was married to Oma. He [had] a daughter named Lillian. She married a Fryman.

I found your page while searching for information on a recreational complex in Catoosa County, GA which is named after my uncle, Jack Mattox, who has been the recreational director there for many years. He is very active in a number of areas, particularly the Special Olympics, which draws a large number of retired professional baseball players each year from around the country.
I am not a Mattox, but my Mother (Mary Elizabeth Mattox Van Keuren), the daughter of Henry Randolph and Nannie Irene Wilson Mattox, is. She and her two sisters (Hilda Mattox Porter and Nancy Mattox Horton) live in Lancaster, SC, one brother (Paul W. Mattox) lives in Myrtle Beach, SC and the other (Jack Mattox) lives in Ringgold, GA. She has a half brother (Winifred Mattox) in Rock Hill, SC. She also has some cousins in other parts of South Carolina.
I do not know a sufficient amount of family history to be of much help, but I am contacting some family members who may be able to add to your page. I do know that this particular branch of the Mattox family is from Monroe, NC, and that Henry Mattox had at least two brothers (Will and Walter) and and least one sister (Lil).
