Maxwell photos

My husband's mother was a Maxwell. Her father's name was James William Maxwell. HIS father's name was James Curtis Maxwell (1882-1910), who married Margaret("Maggie", "Madge")Englert, but James Curtis died before he turned 30. James Curtis' siblings were Ella, Emma, George and
John T. Maxwell, we think John may have had a son named Russell.
We know that for at least a time, the family lived around the Chillicothe area.
I noticed you uploaded a picture of a James C. Maxwell, as well as a photo of a John Maxwell and I'm wondering if these might be my husbands relatives. I'd love to correspond with you to see if we can figure out if that's the case or not.

Thank you

James Curtis Maxwell

Hi, Tracy,

I know his death cert says he was born in 1881 (and that he was single which he wasn't), but, he was 4 years old on the 1880 census and the 1900 census gives his birthdate as Feb 1875.
The son named "Russell" was William Russell Maxwell (1907-1989). Email me at, and I can send you quite a bit of Maxwell information. Ruth
