Samuel Maxwell

Born: 1843/4, in Ireland

Father: Henry Maxwell

Mother: Maria (Kilroy) Maxwell

Notes:
Samuel is possibly the Samuel R. Maxwell found in the 1900 census, a merchant living at 1424 14th St, Denverm Colorado, married for 11 years to a Mary who born in February 1855 in New Jersey. This Samuel was born in May 1842, in Ireland, and emigrated to the United States in 1850, the same year as we see for Henry Maxwell and Maria (Kilroy) Maxwell, but I have not yet found connecting census or marriage records that make me cure that we have the right Samuel.
