Several months ago, Don Maxwell of the Maxwell DNA Study, forwarded to me a genealogy report on John C. Maxwell 1776-1840, furnished by Jim Maxwell, dated Aug. 30, 2005. At the time I couldn't make the link between John C. and my branch, John & Mahala of Indiana-Barry Co. Missouri. I have finally made that link. Anyone interested in this branch of the Maxwell family tree can email me for details. Here is the short version: John C. Maxwell , son of "Rusty" John Maxwell & Rebecca Anderson, grandson of John & Francis "Fanny" Garner, is a brother of my Bazel Maxwell, father of John Maxwell of Wayne Co. KY m. Mahala Weddle. This went a long way to validate this rather obscure line of Maxwell's that is my line. I don't remember if Don sent this to me as a result of a DNA match or not, I hope so.
