#1. Review Cara Bertrams D.A.R. papers-I'm sure the James mentioned there and in the James will is the same James that married Mary Witten-also did you notice on the back one of the typed sheets she mentions that James an Jane are buried outside the fence of the Crockett place-headstones destroyed.
#2.According to Creswell bible records Alice Creswell was born Tuesday-19 Nov. 1805- and that Alice Creswell married Witten Maxwell-4 March 1827. Children born to Alice Creswell & Witten Maxwell are:
#1. Suzy C. Maxwell -12 May 1828-
*#2. James C. Maxwell -17 Dec 1829-
#3. Mary Jane Maxwell -26 Dec 1832-
#4. Henry Maxwell - 4 June 1835-
#5. Frank - no record- some places indicate his name may be Evans Frank.
* there are no death dates mentioned.
Deed Book 15- p. 245 (29 Sept 1873) 200.00 (labor?)
-Black MAre- 4 hd canes & looam-
-would have been his daughter
1860 Tazewell Co. Census # 1255-
Witten Maxwell-55-farmer born in Va.
Alice Maxwell -54
Mary J. Maxwell-25-according to Creswell records she would have been 28- (Close)
41 years old and her name was still Maxwell.
Witten Maxwell was born 1805 or 1804.
1860 & 1880 Census dates figure out right. Alice Creswell had to die between 1860-1878-wonder why Witten was making a deed to his daughter in 1873.
wonder if Mary Jane Maxwell daughter of Witten Maxwell ever married-evidently not-Francie Maxwell 1880 lists Jane as sister 50.
I suspect Witten Maxwells real name was William Witten Maxwell (Harmon's Annals)
Mary Fields-Annals of Tazewell says Witten Maxwell was born in 1805. married Alice Creswell had 5 children. James C.- Susan, Henry Evans-Mary G. could be J. and Frances M.
Mary F. says James d. 1866, Mary d. 1873
Witten Maxwell killed by railroad train-Pisgah Tazwell-89th year.
1860 Tazewell Co VA Henry Maxwell-23 M. Carder Va.
