Genealogy of the Maxwell Family

Compiled by Edmond Maxwell, 1947.

Submitted by Gregory H. Maxwell



     Since I have typed this Family Tree I am taking the liberty to write the dedication. I am sure that all of the relatives will cast their votes unanimously with me.

     Let us dedicate this booklet to our beloved friend and relative, Ed Maxwell, whose untiring efforts has made this information available to us. He has hosts of friends from coast to coast, and I doubt if he has an enemy. Always ready to help the one in need, always cheerful, never complaining. A great traveler that sees all of Natures beauty. Ed has made life a little brighter wherever he has gone.

Jesse L. Nelson


     "Time is passing swiftly by going, going, going, never to return again, and as time passes our friends are dropping by this way. Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, Sisters, Husbands, Wives, Uncles, Aunts, Sons and Daughters, Friends and Associates, many of them near and dear to us as our own lives. And what does or should this all teach us? It should teach us that we too must soon go the way they have traveled before us. When we consider the uncertainty of life and the great future that awaits us, it should constrain us to live in the service of our Redeemer who has done so much for us, and he prepared for the end so that when He comes we can meet him with pleasure and not in sorrow."

Charles L. Maxwell, Hebron, West Virginia.

     Gr. Gr. Gr. Father Samuel Maxwell, Sr., came from Scotland. Supposed to be buried near Carlisle, Pa., at meeting house church. Organized 1734 - names about all washed from grave markers.

     Gr. Gr. Father Samuel Maxwell, son of Samuel Maxwell: From State Library - History of Washington County, Pa.

     "Samuel Maxwell was born near Carlisle, Pa., Oct. 23, 1776, and died Oct. 9, 1865. About the year 1800 he purchased a farm near Hollidays Cove, West Va. (then Brooke Co., Va., now Hancock Co., W. Va.), which was his home until his death. He was very highly esteemed as a neighbor and a citizen. He was for over 50 years a ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church, having been ordained to the office by the Rev. Elisha McCurdy, in the Church known as the "Three Springs," in the burial grounds of which his body awaits the resurrection of the Just."

     "He was twice married. First to Sarah Scott, by whom he had five sons; Samuel Scott, Smiley, John, Robert, and William (who died in infancy,) and one daughter, Elizabeth, who became the bride of Mr. Welsh. Their son, Rev. Josiah Welsh, was the founder, and until his death in 1877, the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City, Utah. Mr. Maxwell and his second wife, Jane Fulton McClusky, were married Aug. 18, 1831. The children of Samuel and Jane McClusky: William, Aug. 9, 1832, died at Williamsburg, Va., in 1832. Second son, James McClusky Maxwell, Aug. 1, 1837. D.D. a Presbyterian Minister. James the Minister, erected the monument to his father, Samuel, in Three Springs Cemetery. Joseph Henry, third son, born March 10, 1840, was an extensive wheat grower near Dawson, Minnesota."

     Robert, Samuel's brother, was born in 1773 and died in 1835. He and his wife, Hannah Graham Maxwell, are buried at North Buffalo Church, on highway 31 out of Little Washington, Pa., about 7 miles out. John C. H. Maxwell, a Gr. Gr. son of Robert, lives on highway 31, R.F.D. 5. All of John C. H.'s Grand Fathers are buried in a row in the beautiful cemetery at North Buffalo Church. Robert and Hannah had nine children - James,


Esther, Joseph, Julia, Sarah, John, Robert, Eleanor, and Jane. The son James was the father of William Maxwell, who was the father of John C. H. Maxwell. You will see that I only give the John C. H. branch of the family as he is the only one I have seen. I saw him once, in 1941, for about two hours. He went with us to the North Buffalo Church. His home on highway 31 out of Little Washington was 166 years old, originally the Robert Fulton farm. (Inventer of the steamboat.)

     Back to Samuel Scott, Smiley, and Elizabeth: Gr. Aunt Elizabeth married a man by the name of Welsh, and they apparently lived at Urchersville, Ohio. One son, Josiah, founded the First Presbyterian Church at Salt Lake City, Utah. Gr. Fa. Samuel Scott Maxwell was born at Hollidays Cove, W. Va., Aug. 27, 1805, and died at Hebron, W. Va., on Dec. 22, 1888. He is buried at Pine Grove. His wife, Eliza Lowery, was born March 21, 1807, and died Oct. 7, 1859. Samuel and Eliza moved to Pleasants County, W. Va. There they bought a farm, named the Post Office Hebron, and organized the Church of Christ at Pine Grove. There many Maxwells are buried and await the resurrection of the Just.
