Notes

Additional biographical information: Frank M. Maddox (1851-1921), along with his brother John W. Maddox (1846-1915), began working as a surveyor in the Texas panhandle in the early 1870s. With Charles E. Anderson (1852-1924), the brothers formed the firm of Maddox Brothers and Anderson in the mid-1880s. W. S. Porter, also known by the pseudonym O. Henry, worked for the firm in the mid-1880's. The Maddox Brothers spent time in the General Land Office for their business at the same time that O. Henry was employed there.
