I've been tracing to James Maxwell III in my tree, but I'm no sure I'm finding all correct information. My 2nd great grandmother was Almeda Maxwell daughter of William Maxwell. Both of Ohio, near Coshocton. William's father is Robert of PA, also son of a Robert. This is a difficult family line for me as my grandfather was not a part of my Mom's life so I'm going from scratch. Have you run across any Maxwell information with a connection from PA to Ohio?
