I am researching the Madoc (Maddox) family of Scethrog and came across an account of some monuments found in the Church: The account on the web; reads as follows:

"We were looking for evidence of Samuel Maddox's father, John Maddox.  We found one left in the doorway behind the organ.  It said Thomas Maddock, 1618.   Surely an ancestor but we don't know which one, or what relationship.  And a thrill, under the carpet behind the organ...a Madoc, 1607.  We put some water on the faded words to bring them out so we could read them.  Notice in the photo of a wall in this church, a few lines from the top, "Gwladis, married Thomas Maddock, Lord of Scethrock".

The web site includes a photo of the monument on the wall of the Church, I have attached it with this request.

I would really appreciate having confirmation that these monuments still exist, and if possible some photos or transcriptions of their inscriptions.

The objective is to see if there are links between the Madocs of Llanfrynach , Guilsfield, St. Tysilio at Meifod, and North Wales
