Title: Maxwell's of Dumfries Scotland
Posted by: Larry Joe Maxwell
Date: 22 November 2014

I am currently working on my genealogy and have traced my ancestors to Dumfries Scotland, about 1780. My 4th Greatgrandfather John Mcdowell Maxwell b. c1787 in Dumfries came with the British army against the USA in the war of 1812, sometime after the war returning to the USA in Virginia around 1818, then getting married to Rachel Slane, then moving to Ohio, Illinois, and finally Minnesota. Where they died in 1859 & 1856. His father is William Fredrick or (Fredrick William) Maxwell from Dumries and his father is possibly Francis Rufport Maxwell.

I am a descent of this through John's son Robert Marshall Maxwell.
