Two children, William and Rebecca were born unto them across the waters -- the latter returning to it maker after a few weeks on earth.

Removing to America, in 1834, they located at Montreal, Canada. Two years hence finds them living at Westville, Ind. Removing to Porter county in 1843 they took possession of the farm that furnished them a pleasant home the remainder of their days.

R. Beer, and the remains deposited in the burying ground west of Kouts.

Mrs. Maxwell was raised in the faith of the church of England and through her three score years and ten acknowledged the goodness and superiority of the Almighty. Calmly with a resignation complete, did she pass away, leaving a comforting thought in her dying words "All is well."
