Maxwells of County Westmeath, Ireland

I have a Peter Maxwell, born around 1800. He served in the English army, and was married to Anne Scott. They had a daughter named Ann, a native of Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim. In old handwritten notes there is a mysterious reference to a chapel in Kiltareher, which I believe is in County Westmeath. Any connection?

Hey Shawn,
My name is Sean Maxwell do you have any information about an Ira Maxwell? He was born in the early 1900's probably around 1930's. If you know anything about him I would like to hear from you.
