John R. Maxwell in Alameda Co, 1890-1930

Looking for any information on this family.

John Royal Maxwell b. 1874 in TN married Alice Elizabeth Walker, b. 1881 in NV.

They had four sons:
1st. William Royal Maxwell b. Oakland, Alameda Co., CA on August 3, 1900 - Could not get birth certificate, but have his SSDI & death certificate

2nd. George Chester Maxwell b. Aug. 30, 1909, parents living at 1230 7th Avenue, Oakland, Alameda County, California
Father is listed as a Artist. George went by the name of Frank and died early from an infection from a gun shot wound.
He was alive using the name Frank in the 1920 census.

3rd. Ernest Palmer (Sam) Maxwell b. May 18, 1911 parents living at 1432 73rd Street, Oakland, Alameda County, California - Father listed as Artist again.

4th. William Chester Maxwell b. August 12, 1915 parents living at 1941 - 94th Ave, Oakland, Alameda County, California
Mother's name says Lillian Walker, NV, but the age is correct and it also says 4th of 4 living children. Father is listed as a Photographer.

John Royal Maxwell's death certificate states he had been in CA for about 20 years when he died Feb. 2, 1951 and says he was a Retired Painter and had been doing Portraits.

Thanks, Jake Maxwell
