Larry, Please email me at Awlays0ntheg0@aol.com. Take notice that the 0 is the number not the letter.
My husband's grandmother is Charlotte Maxwell who I think might be the grandaughter of you James Alexander Maxwell. Charlotte is buried with her grandfather James and her father William in Arlington Cemetery in Kearny, NJ. I am researching this part of the family too.

Your James could be the son of my great grandfather James who was married in Lee County Illionois to Angeline Grover in 1861. I think he was probably in the Civil War because his first child wasn't born until 1865. I lost track of him in White Rock, Kansas in 1870. I have a census record. The Republic County, Kansas recorder sent me a copy of a deed for that county under the name of Alexander Maxwell and Angeline Maxwell. Since I know he was there but did not know his middle name for sure, it may be your James Alexander. If any of this makes sense to you let me know.

The David Maxwell you mention born about 1789, angus dunnichen and Eliz Helen Grey b. 1831 is connected to my Maxwell line. However not through this David Maxwell.

David and Elizabeth's child John Adam Smith was married. His second wife was my husband's 2nd great aunt: Jennie Maxwell. Jennie was sister to James Alexander Maxwell. She was born 7/24/1847 Lanark, Scotland, die 10/1/1940 White Bear, CANADA.

John and Jennie had 6 children, Leonard Geroge, Lenora Gertrude, James Alexander, Ella May, Ada Jane and Helga.

I have a James Marion Maxwell who married Angeline Grover in Lee County in 1861, served in the Illinois infantry, and died in Warwick Kansas in 1906. Sounds like the same guy, but not sure why the deed would be listed under Alexander . . .
