Descendants of Leonard Maxwell b. ca 1798 d. 1872

Classification: Query
Surnames: Maxwell, McNulty, Stitzel
I am hoping to find a male descendant of Leonard MAXWELL, with the surname of MAXWELL, to participate in the MAXWELL DNA study. We are very certain that we are related to Leonard, but we need someone who still has the name MAXWELL (as our ancestor changed his) so we can verify our DNA against that family. Leonard MAXWELL married twice, first to Sarah MCNULTY (half-Cherokee) and second to Ellen STITZEL. Leonard had 6 children with Sarah:

Armstead Blevins MAXWELL b. 1842
Gabrella MAXWELL died young
Marcus MAXWELL b. 1848 died childless
Benjamin Franklin MAXWELL b. 1852
Elsie MAXWELL died young
Charles Leonard MAXWELL b. 1856 (his only son was my grandfather, who changed his name, had only one son, my uncle who has submitted his DNA)

Leonard had two children with Ellen
William MAXWELL b. 1869
Rose MAXWELL b. after 1870

I don't know anything about William or Rose's whereabouts after Leonard died.

So I'm obviously looking for male descendants of Armstead or Benjamin or William.

I've been contacted in the past by descendants of Armstead and Benjamin, but I have lost touch with them. I appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks!
