Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I guess I'll start off this forum by asking if there is anybody out there with a line of Maxtons descending from the Lancaster PA area. My g-g-g-grandfather was John Robert MAXTON, b. 2-22-1808, d.1-13-1892. I don't know his wife's name, but his son was Benjamin Frank MAXTON, who married Elizabeth Hawk (dates unknown). The MAXTONs moved to Ohio sometime before 1875. Benjamin and Elizabeth's children included: John Robert MAXTON (aka Harley), b. 9-16-1877, Emma MAXTON, May MAXTON, and Bert MAXTON. John Robert (Harley) MAXTON married Grace Wanita READY in Clark County, Ohio in 1898. Their children include Carrie, Thelma and ORval MAXTON.
Any info on this line would be greatly appreciated.
