I'm researching Robert and Sarah Maxwell (parents of Jacob Neasley Maxwell). My dad has dug up an interesting fact that I thought I would share. Robert Maxwwell attended a function at Sugar Grove Methodist Church in Columbiana Co. or Jefferson Co. Ohio around 1800 along with a man by the name of Jacob Nessley. It appears that he then named his son after the man.
I am searching for any information on Robert's parents. The best we have is that his father may have also been named Robert and that his mother's maiden name may have been Wilson, but I have no idea what the source is for this information.
