Descendants of David Maxfield
of Georgia and Fairfax, Vermont
Third Generation


ALFRED3 MAXFIELD (Henry2, David1) was born at Milton, Vermont, about 1829 (place from marriage record and birth records of children; 1828/9 in 1850, 1880 censuses; 1829/30 in 1870 census), a child of Henry and Minerva Maxfield.

In the 1850 census (Chittenden Co., 187) Alfred was a farmer, age 21, living at Milton with his parents, listed as paupers, in the household of Alfred and Jane Copper.

Alfred Maxfield married MARY JANE HOLMES at Milton on 9 February 1861 (VR VT):

Alfred Maxfield of Westford, 32 y, 1st, shoemaker b. Westford
& Mary L. Holmes;
by E. Button Haff, minister
Mary Jane Holmes was born at Westford, Vermont, about 1843/4 (place from birth records of children, year from 1870, 1880 censuses). Alfred was consistently called a shoemaker in all future records.

The 1870 census (1618:1:729A) reported this family at the town of Westford, Essex Junction Post Office. The family included Alfred, age 40, boot and shoe maker, Mary Jane, 26, keeping house, Elmer E., 8, at school, Effie L., 5, at school, and Dora L., 2. All were born at Vermont.

The 1880 census (1343:340A) reported the growing family at Westford, spelling a few names differently. It listed Alfred, 51, shoemaker, Jane, wife, 36, keeping house, Armina, daughter, 18, employed as a servant, Ethel, daughter, 15, Dora, daughter, 7, Arthur, son, 7, and Charley, son, 2. All family members and all of their parents were born at Vermont.
