Mary Ann Maddox
1832 ~ Aft. 1860

   Mary Ann Maddox was born to William and Nancy Brandenburg Maddox in 1832 in Clermont Co., OH.  Her father moved to Bracken Co., KY, in the late 1830s.  There she met John F. Fryer who lived in the adjoining Pendleton Co., KY.  Her sister, Sophia, married Milton Fryer in 1846.  About 1850, Mary Ann married Milton's brother, John.  Later in 1860, their younger brother, Sanford, would marry Milton's and John's sister, Mary Fryer.

     In 1851, Mildred A. was born.  In 1853 Sophrona ~ named after her sister ~ was born, then Bell in 1856.  Kate ~ named after her grandmother, Catharine Brandenburg ~ was born in 1860.

     In the 1860 census of Pendleton Co., KY, HH 1533/1505 was her brother, Sanford, and living next door was Mary Ann.  Her sister, Elizabeth, 19, was living with them.

     Mary Ann's father, William, had gone to Douglas Co., IL, around 1855, taking along with him her younger brothers and sisters. 

     Most of her family ended up in Illinois.  But Mary Ann stayed in Pendleton Co., KY, where the Fryer family had lived since the late 1700s. 

     I have not traced any more on Mary Ann, but am sure there are many records on her family in Pendleton Co.
