Is this a married name? googuse 18:45, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm confused as well. Although most sources like this, this and this all give her birth name as Brogdon, they also all seem to agree that the birth name of her brothers was Maddox. What is the answer? Ghmyrtle (talk) 23:56, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Indeed, that's what sources say, but the brothers' name seems to have been Maddox, and at the article on the Maddox Brothers and Rose she is also listed as Maddox. So, we still don't have an explanation. Was Maddox a stage name, of all of them?Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:11, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
PS: This source says that "By 1959 Rose had married club owner Jim Brogdon...." It seems to be a reliable source, but it also differs from oither reliable sources. The 1940 Census has her as Rose Maddox, living in Modesto with her family (also Maddox). I will add those details to the article. Anyone have any thoughts? Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:16, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
PPS: I've since edited the article to remove any uncertainty over this, and added a footnote. It's now clear from various sources that Maddox was her birth name, and Brogdon was a later married name around the time that she started a solo career, which is when the error may have arisen.
