About Our Family Research
This is a search of my father's family, Forrest Lee Maxson, who was born in Ritchie County, West Virginia. I have very little information about the family. His father was Dow Maxson and his grandfather was Elisha Maxson. He grew up in Otter Slide, WV. His parents, Dow and Jenny, moved to Coxes Mills. They died when I was young and before I knew the importance of knowing about family. One Aunt, Susie Maxson Williams is still alive in Belpre, Ohio. Some first cousins are alive, but I have long since lost contact with them.
