It is possible that three of my great uncles were coal mimers.
One, for sure, was certified. Are any of the old personnel
records, miner registration numbers etc archived anywhere? Are
there any books or stories etc written regarding the mines and

these lines would be appreciated.

It's me again, cousin. Galena, Kansas, holds a week-long town
celebration during the first week of June every year. There is a
museum that has info on the lead and zinc mines in the area.
There is a book available about Galena pioneers. Our family
has a reunion scheduled for the fifth of June in Joplin, Mo.,
which I plan to attend. Most of my Betzer/Goldsberry info came
from my father's recollections. He was born in 1898. Other
Betzer/Goldsberry info was found at the Kansas City branch of
the National Archives. The name Jacobs is also married into
the Betzer/Goldsberry lineage. I believe the Betzers came from
Nebraska to Kansas. I'll forward any info I come across. Bye

OK. to South
Dakota to Kansas(In Cherokee County) then down the Oregon

This was in 1860 or abouts ??
Ora L. Maddox b. 1-8-1888 in Chamberland Brule County
South Dakota d.
2-4-1959 Weiser Washington County Idaho. At this time his
Unknown, but Possibility a Mary A. was his Mother ? I did fine
of Internment for him and his wife Treasure L ( Sevey) Maddox
d.5-8-1932 and a Mary A Maddox b.6-14-1850 d.6-21-1924 in
Cemetery Washington County Idaho. There were children of
his and Treasures
marriage 3 Boys and 1 Girl, her name is Imogene Mae (
Maddox ) Murray
b.8-19-1921 Weiser Washington County Idaho. The Three
boys DOB are unknown
to me at this time. All the boys are living and live in Oregon
Two Are World Champion Rodeo Cowboys (PCRA) Bull Riding
and Calf Roping.
Imogene is my Mother-In-Law and I and my wife Pamela have
been working on
the Maddox Family Tree.
There stories that Imogene was told when she was a little Girl
Family, but the family didn't talk about the passed, and not of
this Mary A. Imogene told me that she can remember her as
granny, but her
dad Ora didn't talk about her after her death. The One thing
that I have
found out is that the story about Ora's Mother & Father going
to a Indian
Reservation in South Dakota was true. While I was checking
out the South
Dakota Information I found that a Comanche girl was enrolled
in the Indian
School at Chamberland, her Name was Harriet Maddox and she
was out of
Oklahoma at the time of Ora's birth.
With more checking I found a William S Maddox b.1833 he
was in the Union
Army Station at Farragut Post # 52 Spearfish South Dakota.
His Company was
Company D 9th Ind. Legion. He enlisted in Jennings County
IND.. In the South
Dakota State Veterans Cemetery at Falls River Hot Springs
Dakota The Internment of William S Maddox d. 5-30-1901 .
Now to tie this to the Ora Maddox. Imogene stated that she
think her Grand
Father first name was William or Willie or Wills ? That her
father Ora told
her that her Grand father died in the Idaho State Veterans
Hospital in Boise
Idaho and was taken back to South Dakota.
