Asa Maddocks, Lucas County Ohio

  of 1621

History books state that "In 1848, Mr. Asa W. Maddocks planted in Southwest Toledo the first nursery in northwestern Ohio. In 1858, a stock company was formed by Mr. Frederick Prentice, Mr. A. W. Maddocks and others, called the Great Western Nursery. They had three hundred acres planted to stock on river tracts 80, 81, 83 and 86. In 1863, the Northwestern company was dissolved." My great-great grandfather, Joseph Huber, was one of the "others" mentioned in this report. I have very little information about him, and hoped that by posting this tidbit about Asa Maddocks, I might learn more. Asa Maddocks is named as a representative of my gggrandfather in all of his legal affairs. They were very close friends. Perhaps there is a Maddocks researcher or other historian that might be able to help me learn more about my gggrandfather. Since Maddocks was at one time a newspaperman, there might be journals or diaries that shed some light on my ancestors origins before coming to Lucas County, Ohio.
