*A few years back, I asked an old timer if he had heard of Cug Davis in the Sabinal Canyon. He said "Yes, when I was a misbehaving boy, I was threatened with " Boy, If you don't behave, we will just have to CUG you".
Lots of stories still float around about old Cug Davis. Some mysteries will never be solved. A son in law disappeared, never to be heard of again. Cug's daughter, Rosie married John Maddox about 1911. John disappeared several months before she gave birth to her only son. She went to John's sister and begged her to say where John went. She was told "Go home and forget him. He's been in trouble with the law and is 'no good'."
It was rumored that John Maddox was murdered and that his body was hid in a cave near Vanderpool Texas. Many years later, some articles were found in a cave which gave some credibility to the story.
I have searched and cannot find any documentation.
