The Maxsons who migrated to NJ were, for the most part, supportive of the Revolution. The "History of the Seventh Day Baptists in WV" mentions Simeon who had become a Quaker and railed against those who fought for independence. There is a Nathan Maxson mentioned in the Shrewsbury Church in 1774.
The book I cited was written by Corliss Fitz Randolph. I've heard from others that it is available on Amazon.
There is a Nathan, son of Joseph and Bethia (Maxson) Maxson b.1736, m.Elizabeth Brown. Brown says "His descendants probably were numerous, but his children have not been discovered." Could that be because Nathan and his family were Loyalists??? This might be your answer.
Joseph and Bethia and many of their children moved to Shrewsbury in 1742. The way children were named, it's probable this Nathan had a son Nathan.
