Eliza Jane Maddox of Baltimore is my 3x great-grandmother.  According to her obituary, she was the widow of Joseph Scott.  Awesome–but guess what?  Joseph Scott doesn’t appear in any records besides that obituary.  Though he certainly existed, he may not have been who he said he was.  Finding the truth about this family has been my obsession for many years.  Now, with the addition of DNA evidence, the story has taken some unexpected turns.  I am hoping to unravel it all someday.  In the meantime, I’m publishing all the stories, of all the ancestors.
