Maxwell Family of Llano Co. TX
Author: Karylon Russell Date: 5 Jan 2001 12:00 PM
Classification: Biography: Among the first non-German settlers in Llano Co. were the descendants of Isaac D. Maxwell and Nancy L. Byler, who married in Bedford Co. TN and lived there briefly before moving west with Isaac's brother, John H. Maxwell and wife, Elvira Byler, who was Nancy's sister, to become early residents of what became Lauderdale Co. TN.In 1844, both John H. and Isaac D. made the decision to leave Tennesse and move to Yell Co. AR. It was here that both men would live out the rest of their lives, but by the year 1880, all but one of Isaac's children and many of John H.'s descendants would relocate in Llano Co. TX. When Uncle John H. Maxwell and his son, Abram B. Maxwell, both died between 1875-1878 in Yell CO. AR, the last child of Isaac D. Maxwell, James Taylor JIM Maxwell and his wife, Elsie Spillers, sold their Arkansas property and made a permanent move to the Colorado River area of Central Texas.
Coming with them were their children, another Isaac D., Sarah Jane, Nancy, Mary Delcina, and James William Spillers Maxwell. When Elsie died early in 1881, Jim married Minta/Minnie, called "Aunt Mint", Oden. The older children did not approve of their father's remarrying, so even though most had married into Llano Co. families, all left the county except for James W.S. who still has descendants here today.
