My John MAXWELL was born in Ulster, Ireland (probably Downpatrick, Co. Down), where he married his wife Mary [CARSON?]. John and Mary immigrated to PA before 1740. They were in Orange Co., VA, by 1740, and then in Augusta Co. John died in Rockbridge Co. before 1786. Their children were John, Margaret, Thomas, William, James, Rebecca, Audley, and Sarah. I know of know connection with a Mary WISEMAN.
