Classification: Query
Surnames: Maxwell
I have prepared a document that has all of the specific descendants of James Maxwell's (Scotland 1786) son, Joseph Patrick Maxwell, who was from Co. Meath, Ireland and immigrated to the Newport, New York area. I have little information about James Maxwell's origins in Scotland. I have more information about his son, Joseph Patrick Maxwell, in Ireland. Once stateside, I have so much information about the family line. If you are related, please let me know.

Surnames: Maxwell , Ochiltree
My ancestor is Matthew Ochiltree of Scotland who came to America after the Clearanes. He may have met Mary Maxwell daughter of James on the ship . There were three Maxwell sisters. .I believe James father would be Joseph Patrick of Meats Ireland. possible of the Wm of Jackton and Calderwood, Scotland and Alexander and Jean ..Matthew and Mary finally ended up in VA. They had 5 childen. I do not think Matthew or Mary was born in Ireland..
I would appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks..Lu..

I do not think it is a will as they had emigrated to America. But it is from the Records of Parliment andthe dates are on on the bottom let of each page. My GGGMother was Mary Maxwell. married an Ochiltree and they met while in Ireland in the Ulster Plantation. I think it is a land grant from the King.

These names re exact to my ancestors but I am not sure as I don't have the descending tree...
