Title: Maxwells from Co. Tyrone, Ireland

I too am looking for the elusive Maxwells of Ireland. They seem to be a Ulster Scots, am I right? My Maxwell's came from Tyrone. I have posted elsewhere and have got no leads. I have traced back past my Gr-grandfather, Thomas Henry Maxwell to his parents John James Maxwell and Mary Ann Shaw, and also have all the names and dates for his brothers and sisters, but can get no further than this. This is the inquiry on the Tyrone Genforum that I posted awhile ago.

Well, I think I may have finally got a lead or two on fnding my gr-gr grandparents. I have been looking for John James Maxwell, and Mary Ann Shaw in Cookstown. That is supposedly where my gr-grandfather Thomas Henry Maxwell came from. But I have recently received information from a great aunt that said the John and Mary Ann farmed in the Clogher area. Their farm was there, but the house that was built for them to retire in, is still standing in Cookstown (29 Lisson Road?) I am still looking for the family grave, it is apparently in Cookstown, although I have no idea what cemetery.(Protestant) But then again it may be in Clogher. I am still searching for further background information, though, and if anyone out there can help me out, please drop me a line or two. If this name seems familiar to you,let me know.
John James Maxwell b. March 1847, Co. Tyrone. Ireland d.November 5, 1916 Co. Tyrone, Ireland
Mary Ann Shaw b. 1850, Co. Tyrone ? d.July 13, 1923 Co. Tyrone, Ireland
They had 13 children.
My gr-grandfather Thomas Henry Maxwell was born January 5, 1871, in (or around)Cookstown Co.Tyrone, came to the U.S on August 22,1893 docking at Ellis Island, on the ship called the Ethiopia, then traveled on to Kinglsey, Iowa, to his uncle's.....he died December 1960 in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Thank you! Angela Loppe
