Dennis was the son of G. T. Maddox and Dora Smith. The birth year on the death certificate is 1874, but it is 1876 on his World War I draft registration card. He lived in Dallas 15 years. In the 1910 census he was listed as a salesman for United Oil and Refining Company, a company in Oklahoma.

The funeral services were held at Sacred Heart Cathedral. The Eagles were in charge of the ceremonies at the grave.

Although the newspaper obituary said Dennis was buried in Oakland, he was buried in Grove Hill Cemetery. His Find A Grave memorial is 65081533 under the name D. O. Maddox. I am leaving this memorial in Oakland, because if I delete it someone else may see the newspaper obituary and create a memorial in Oakland without the explanation.

Find A Grave member Barbara Ware solved the mystery of the correct burial location.
