The Maddux Cemetery apparantly got its name from the first to be buried there named Jacob Thomas Maddux in Sep of 1873. He was the son of Jacob L Maddux and Nancy Jane Arline Maddux who were the parents Belle Maddux, therefore Belle and John Thomas Maddux were siblings. Belle Maddux married William Jordan Raines who owned the land where the cemetery lay but the burial occured in 1873 when Belle was 13 years old and William Jordan Raines was 17. Belle and William Jordan were not married until 1880, therefore Belle's parents must have been friends with the parents of William Jordan Raines' parents to recieve such a burial offer.
