Asa Maddocks, Wood County Ohio resident

Asa Maddocks was an important figure in the early history of both Wood County, Ohio and Lucas County, Ohio. As the history books state, "In 1848, Mr. Asa W. Madocks planted in Southeast 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, and 86. In 1863, the Northwestern company was dissolved." My great-great grandfather was one of the "others" mentioned. He owned tract #83, on which Libby Owens later built their Rossford plant. At that time, I believe it was called Ross Twp. and it was technically situated in Wood County, Ohio. Am anxious to talk with a Maddocks researcher or other historian that might be able to share information about my great-great grandfather, Joseph Huber.
