This is my gggGrandfather, who was born in County Tyrone married Rebecca Maxwell(nee Maxwell) about 1820. He died at Carndonagh, County Donegal in March 1838. He had a large family stating with William, then Thomas etc.

I have found a reference to a John Maxwell born 1744 in Clougher Parish (mostly in County Tyrone)
married about 1769 and had at least 5 children, William , John, James,Sarah and Jane.

It is likely that first son William would name his first son John given the Paternal Grandfather convention of the times. This would put him in the right place and timeframe to be the father of John Maxwell born 1793 in County Tyrone.

Cna anyone make this connection?
