    John Maddox and Elizabeth Sherwood had eleven children, including the eldest, Jacob Maddox. Jacob Maddox was born about 1730 in Goochland County, Virginia, and died 1796 in Greene County, Georgia. His first marriage was to Susannah Lucy Clarkson on January 9, 1758 in Goochland County, Virginia. She was the daughter of John Clarkson and Mary. She was born about 1735 in Goochland County, Virginia and died in Greene County, Georgia. John's second wife was Sarah Morrow, who he married on December 21, 1788 in Greene County, Georgia. Greene County was created from Washington County on February 3, 1786 by an act of the Georgia General Assembly. Georgia's 11th county was named for Revolutionary War General Nathaniel Greene.

    Petitions of Greene County were used to help create Taliaferro County in 1825. Additionally, areas of Greene County were transferred to Oglethorpe, Clark and Taliaferro counties between 1794 and 1877.

    Jacob Maddox and Susannah Clarkson had three sons and one daughter. The eldest was named Claiborne Maddox. Jacob Maddox and Sarah Morrow had a son and a daughter.

    In the will of Margaret Morrow, of Greene County, Georgia, she left "to her son-in-law Jacob Maddox, and Sarah Maddox his wife, all of my child's part that has come to me out of my deceased husband's estate except my part or portion of the land. To daughter Elizabeth Bell who is now living in Virginia, Amelia County, my child's part of land and plantation whereon my husband died. I nominate and appoint Jacob Maddox my sole executor." On October 20, 1791, the record of inventory for the estate of Margaret Morrow listed one Negro woman named Dilce, household and kitchen furniture, wearing apparel, and a child's part of land and plantation whereupon deceased husband died. This was recorded on November 9, 1791.
