Maxwell of Carndonagh (Co. Donegal) until c1850, Co. Tyrone earlier (Kilskeery?)
Posted by: Michael Maxwell (ID *****7439) Date: February 28, 2011 at 11:13:57

Looking for earlier generations of the following:

John Maxwell
Parents possibly named William Maxwell and Margaret.
Born c. 1793 in Co. Tyrone (possibly Kilskeery).
Married Rebecca Maxwell c. 1815.
Died March 1838 in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal.

Rebecca Maxwell
Parents named Thomas Maxwell and Mary McKinley. This Thomas is said to have been the 12th consecutive Thomas Maxwell in the family.
Born 1794.
Married John Maxwell.
Arrived in Philadelphia in 1850.
Died in 1874 in Beechwoods, Jefferson Co., Pennsylvania, USA.

John Maxwell and Rebecca Maxwell had 12 children, some of which went to the USA. Their fourth child, Joseph Maxwell, is my ancestor, who left Carndonagh, Donegal in 1844-45 to settle in Philadelphia by 1850.
