Yes, yes, yes..I can not tell the connection of your John Maxwell to our William Maxwell b 1745 Scotland d 1830 Jefferson County, Oh but our William was definitely in Fayette County, PA with a son, Charles Maxwell b 1777 Ireland d 1857 Jefferson County, Oh daughter Jane b 1769 Ireland d 1857 Jefferson County, Oh and William's wife Sarah b 1753 Scotland d 1837 Jefferson County, Oh. All, mentioned above, moved to the Northwest Territory, Oh sometime between 1790 and 1806. I believe Charles to be one of the younger sons and he left PA with his parents. Charles married a Sarah who was born in PA 1776. Many offspring in our line are named Mary Elizabeth, Francis and Frances (daughters). Would love to find the connection of your John Maxwell to our Maxwell tree. Believe the connection would be between your John Maxwell's father and our William Maxwell. Our William could well be your John's grandfather or his Uncle.
Good Luck to all searching,
Christine Joy Maxwell
