death of Levi MADDOX: November 14, 1874
There is misinformation on Ancestry World Tree that Levy is buried in Leesburg, Gonzales Co., TX.
There is a Levy MADDOX who died in Guadalupe Co in the Co. Probate records September 10 1897.

1880 -Guadalupe Co., TX / District No 75 - 12th of June - G.B. HALLAMON
Guadalupe Valley - District 75, Page No. 25, stamped page 299a
Dwelling #182:Household #186
Last line on page: Maddox, Mary W F 57 Widow

- the next page 26, stamped 299b was enumerated 14th June
it begins with Dwelling #189:Household #193
- the next page 27, stamped 300a was enumerated 14th June
it begins with Dwelling #198:Household #202

- the next page 28, stamped 300b was enumerated 12th June
Dwelling #182:Household #186
Line 1: MADDOX, Emoline, w f 19 TX GA AL
Line 2: MADDOX, Andrew, w m 18 TX GA AL

apparently, the pages stuck together when the enumerator was documenting households and then later went back and filled in the two pages (299b & 300a)

MY NOTE: [Tempie must be Emily/Emoline born May 1860 - if born in the month of May is correct, she was born only five months after the marriage of Levi and Mary... Tempie/Emoline may well have really been a DUNN...... more research on the death of JJ DUNN needed - did Tempie decide at 18 to probate her fathers Will with no papers??]

Maddox, Mary
Aug 19, 1823 - Mar 18, 1900 Section D
LOCKHART CITY CEMETERY [not listed on USGS/GNIS - because inside city limits???]
Located on the northeast side of Lockhart, (Caldwell County) Texas, near US 183.

Also buried there is B(enevidas) V. MADDOX which could be a daughter.
Birth: 12 Aug 1864 Death: 12 Sep 1869

My sources are simply the County documents on Rootsweb and the Census on Ancestry. Typos are always possible at any level.
