This tune is reputedly named after General John Sappington Marmaduke of the Confederate States of America, and is apparently a standard of Missouri fiddling. Here is Bill Driver's version. I'm wouldn't swear to the ordering of the parts in the transcription; the fragmentary nature of the source recording may have led me to swap the A and B parts. Play this one very fast.
