John Gilbert Maddock, a banker, newspaperman, the magazine writer, and farmer, who died at his home near Wahkaicus Station on the Goldendale branch of the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway, was buried in the Odd Fellows cemetery at Goldendale last Friday.
He was born at Umatilla, on the banks of the upper Columbia river, October 11, 1863. He was the son of Frank Maddock, the first sheriff of Umatilla county, and Lucy J. Maddock. His early life was passed mostly at Heppner where his father was a merchant and cattleman. He gained part of his education at the Old Bishop Scott academy in Portland. When about 18 years old he began teaching. When 23 years old he started a private bank at Heppner, associated with the Rhea Bros. Later he turned it into the First National Bank of Heppner. He married Miss Ida May Patterson, a Ligonier, Indiana, January 31, 1888. The following year he sold out his interest in the Heppner Bank and went to Goldendale, in 1889, and organized the First National Bank of Goldendale, which was the first banking institution in Klickitat county. This bank was conducted by Mr. Maddock until 1897, when he and associates gave up the charter obtained from the government, and opened a private bank, which shortly afterward went into liquidation, all depositors being paid in full.
A few years after retiring from the banking business, Mr. Maddock acquired property on the Big Klickitat river, near Wahkiacus, containing mineral springs, which he developed. His place of late years became noted as a resort for anglers from all parts of the United States.
For years he was connected with several of the leading newspapers of Oregon and Washington, and through them he kept Klickitat before the public. He belonged to the United Artisans; and was a member of the Masonic institution, but had not affiliated with the order of late years.

History Of Klickitat County
For a long time the city had been handicapped in the transaction of its business because of the absence of a banking house in the town, but in 1889 this desideratum was supplied, a company being formed with a capital of fifty thousand dollars and the First National Bank of Goldendale established. The first officers of this institution were: J.G. Maddock, president; Hugh Fields, vice-president; Hugh Fields, E.W. Pike, J.G. Maddock, F.W. Patterson and O.D. Sturgess, directors. The enterprise flourished from the beginning.
