I descend from Rev. Thomas J. Maxwell through son William Maxwell, who married Jane Higginbotham, and had Elizabeth Maxwell wife of Ralph Banks Jr., parents of Russell Banks, who married Mary Yarbrough, and had my great grandmother Nancy Catherine Banks. Nancy married James Knox Acree then had my grandmother Retha Jane Acree, wife of Zack Martin. Rev. Maxwell and wife Jane Higginbotham are buried next to a field in Elbert County. William and Jane are buried at the Phi Delta cemetery in Commerce, Jackson County. Elizabeth and Ralph Jr. are buried in the private Banks Cemetery on Damascus Road, Banks County, Georgia. Russell and Mary are buried in the smaller Banks Cemetery in Banks/Stephens County near the homeplace of Russell and son in law James Knox Acree. James and Nancy are buried at Tates Creek Baptist, Banks/Stephens. Retha is buried next to her husband Zack Martin and my father Wallace Ford Martin, at Toccoa Cemetery, Stephens County, Georgia. We put up pictures for all the graves. Most of the descendants of Rev. Maxwell have been put down in Annie Lou Maxwell's book Thomas Maxwell of Virginia and Georgia published in the 1950's, which lists my father, grandmother and others going back. Most of the lines except William Maxwell left Northeast Georgia.
