Title: Robert Belton Maxwell AL > MS

Looking for information on Robert Belton Maxwell b. Abt. 1819 in AL m. Mary Caroline Smith b. Abt. 1830 in MS.  Their children were Cordelia, Frances, Ella Bell, Flemmon H., Charlie S., Benjamin, John Corson, and Robert Belton Jr.

Family legend is that Robert's father was James Maxwell.  A likely prospect is a marriage record from Madison Co., AL where James Maxwell married Jane Blackburn on Nov 30, 1818.

The 1850 census of Pontotoc Co., MS shows Robert living next to a William J. Maxwell, wife Sarah, and children Charles, Sarah, Robert, and Rebecca.  William and Robert are possibly related - possibly brothers.  By 1860, Robert and his family had settled in present day Prentiss Co., MS.

Any help on this family will be greatly appreciated.
