J.C. Maxwell

James C. Maxwell
husband of Minerva

He is buried Cat Creek Cemetery by his first wife, who died young. His second wife Harriett Hughes Harrison Maxwell is buried by deceased children from her first marriage. Her husband died in the Civil War, I believe he is buried in the St Louis area.

JC was a soldier in the Civil War & was held at Fort Delaware Prison on Pea Patch Island.

JC was my great great grandpa. His son Tom & daughter-in-law Gilly took care of him & Harriett. when the house caught fire in 1925, they carried JC out of the burning building on his mattress. He died soon after. My grandma Grace remembers him.
