Willard Maddux and his blood hounds.
Willard and his father, Joe Maddux, who lived in the lower end of Putnam County
in the Rock Springs Community were called out several nights a week back during
the 1930's to use their dogs in tracking down people who would be out stealing
corn from the neighbors. They also tracked down a murderer or two.
