NOTE: James Maxwell located on the property in what is now known as Tazewell County Virginia in 1772-from Botetourt Co. At that time, it is stated in court records "he removed his family to this location in 1772"-this indicates that he had a wife and some children. In the year 1772 this property was in the bounds of Fincastle Co., In 1776 the boundary line was moved and it was thrown into Washington Co-in 1789 it was changed into Wythe Co. When Tazewell County was created in Dec. 1799 that land, again was thrown into a new county and is still (in 1989) in Tazewell.
NOTE: James & Jane ____________ Maxwell are buried on property that they had owned (and probably Mattie & Jinnie/Jeanie) which is known as the Crockett Place- just outside of the wrought-iron fence that encloses the Crocketts graves-the headstones have been destroyed.
knowing the burial location is cool. knowing that time (I'm assuming, we're talking 200+ years) have destroyed these stones, is not. maybe someone has erected a memorial stone or marker of some type for the Maxwell family? this would be a good project for a family genealogist to undertake.
