|Death: ||Jan. 4, 1929|
Maggie Mae lived a very short life. According to the story her oldest daughter told, which was learned from her grandmother, that Maggie refused a leg amputation which (probably) would have saved her life. When she died at the tender age of 22, she left behind a husband and three very small children, two daughters and a son.
Her oldest daughter went to live with her mother, the youngest two went to live with one of the aunts, but by 1930 those two were living at the Maddix grandmothers along with their dad.
Her daughters grew up to be "spittin-images" of her sisters Allie and Lee.
She was never known to her children, and the only photo that was ever in the possession of her children was destroyed in a house fire in 2005. That photo, Maggie standing behind and holding the hands of her oldest daughter Margaret, is visible IN a photo of her husbands second wife (Vera West's) picture taken at her daughter Margaret's house.

**We looked for this gravesite for years. Just recently, with the aid of information on her fathers death certificate, we were able to locate his grave, and in turn, locate hers.
The information on her stone is not completely accurate as we know it, but it's found, and we will install an additional plaque giving the information we have. Hopefully, between the two, all we know about her will be recorded for future generations.
