Title: Ahoghill Antrim Maxwells

If anyone has any information about these Maxwells previous to their emigrating to New Zealand in 1909/1910, I will be eternally greatful to receive it.  The family is the Alexander Maxwell (m. Elizabeth Wade nee White)family.  They farmed in Ahoghill.  The children of this partnership were Elizabeth, Thomas, John (Jack), Mary and Samuel.  Mary died at about 18 years of age and the rest of the family went to New Zealand a few years later.  These Maxwells had Maxwell cousins of Elizabeth, Jack etc were Elizabeth (aka Betty), Alexander, Jean (married Tom Cupples), Sara (married Mr McCully and emigrated to Philadelphia) Pennsylvania, and maybe one other sibling, but I am not sure. Apparently this line did not produce many, if any children, as Betty wrote to Sam in NZ that the Maxwell line had run out, but for the NZ one. Sam's father, Alexander had 3 or 4 sisters, one of whom married a Mr Gregg.
