Shawn, I have a William Maxwell in my Family line. He was born at Fore, Co. Westmeath in November 1840. R.C. Christening at St. Fechin's Church, Fore, Parish of Collinstown, on 17th November 1840 - Register: C - Page 337 - Witnesses: James Dermody & Rose Fitzsimons. His Father as far as I can ascertain was an Edward Maxwell who Married on 27th January 1839 & Died at Ben, Fore West, in 1875.William's Grandfather was also Edward Maxwell who Died on 18th December 1844 at Fore West. I think perhaps his Great Grandfather was Cormack Maxwell who Died at Fore West, on April 16th 1797 and was Buried at St. Fechin's Cemetery on 18th April 1797 with the oldest Record I have of a Rose Maxwell who Died on 10th October 1796 and Buried in St. Fechin's Old Churchyard, Fore on 12th October 1796.
I have actual Records. I sincerely hope that this information may be of interest to you in assisting you to sort your family line. I have downloaded tonight The Census of Ireland Records for the Maxwell Family at Emper / Empor and there is a William Maxwell as head of Family and his Declared Age falls in line with the William Maxwell in My family Line. If I can assist further, do not hesitate to e.mail me. Good Luck with your endeavours and May your God go with you. Roy Joseph Maxwell
