Please send your e-mail address to me:

Let's see what we can come up with. My sources for this family are not very good. I'm relying on databases that are very generic. I need to find original sources.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Surnames: Maxwell
This is the same line I'm researching. My line descends from James and Jane (Roberts) Maxwell. My direct descendants are James - WIlliam James - Witten - James C. - Thomas Witten - Leona Grace. Leona Grace is my grandmother; she has one living brother and sister. Her sister Minerva has done a lot of research on the Maxwell line. I've just gotten some from her (unsure what her sources were) so maybe we can compare notes!!

I am a descendent of Sidney Maxwell (born in VA., 1770, died in Ashe Co., N.C, 1855, married Catherine Elsberry), who my family 'believes' was the son of Thomas (brother to William), however, we have not had hard evidence to support this theory. I've noted several messages that seem to indicate Sidney was in fact a son of Thomas......can someone confirm this?

My line comes down as:
Sidney Maxwell/Catherine Elsberry
Larkin Maxwell/Elizabeth Eller
Sidney Maxwell/Louise Britton
Walter Maxwell/Ellen Graybeal
Graydon Maxwell/Lucille Ramsey
Joseph R. Maxwell/Frances Smith
Joseph F. Maxwell

I would be interested in any correspondence regarding the Maxwell's.

I show John's wife as Margaret Mary Carson (some sources Mary Margaret Carson). If you've ever found a location on John's grave site I'd love to know, I've got family in NC and I've been planning a research trip to Virginia for a while.

John's parentage is documented in so many different ways depending on the source, I'd really love to have a birth year from his tombstone to go on.

Thanks,

Jeff Maxwell
