I hope someone can shed some light on this. I can trace my Maxson line back to Britton C. Maxson b abt 1790 in Shrewsbury, NJ. The LDS database states that his parents were Joseph Maxson and Hannah Stout oth b abt 1770. I recently ran across a deed which states the following:

Abigail (Knott) Maxson b abt 1770(Daughter of David Knott and Isabel Little) is shown having the following direct heirs:

1)Britton C Maxson 2)John Maxson 3)George Maxson

The deed does not list Agagail's husband but I have learned from other sources that Abigail was married before 1790 and she is listed in a will in 1790 so I know she was still alive about the time Britton was born. I am trying to find which Maxson she was married to. The deed does not agree with the LDS data but I think the deed is a better source.
