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

ALTON M.5 MAXFIELD (Orvis4, Minor3, Henry2, David1) was born at Virginia on 8 May 1879 (WWI Draft), a child of Orvis and Nancy J. Maxfield.

Alton Maxfield married ELLA about 1901 (1900/1 in 1910 census; 1901/2 in 1930 census). Ella was born at Virginia on 1 August 1883 (SSDI).

The 1910 census reported this family at the Occoquan District, Prince William County, Virginia:

Name Related Sex Race Age MS B FB MB Occupation
Maxfield, Alton head M W 31 M1 VA VA VA farmer
own farm
Maxfield, Ella wife F W 26 M1 VA VA VA none
Maxfield, Owen D. son M W 11 S VA VA VA none

Alton and Ella had been married nine years; Ella had three children, only one living. Perhaps I have misread Owne's age and it should be four.

Alton Maxfield registered for the draft (WWI Draft) at Prince William County on 12 September 1918:

Alton Maxfield, P.O. Hoadly, Prince William Co., VA
39; b. May 8, 1879 white

rel: Ella Maxfield, Hoadley

The 1920 census (1907:9B) reported the family still at Occoquan District. Alton, 39, was a lineman for the telephone company; wife Elba was 36; son Owen D. was 14.

The 1930 census (2456:5A) reported the family at Half Run, Occoquan Township, Prince William County. Alton Maxfield, 52, was a farmer; wife Ella was 46; son Owen D., 24, drove a government truck for a commissary. Alton and Ella were married at ages 22 and 18 respectively.

Ella Maxfield died on January 1967 (SSDI).

Alton and Ella Maxfield had at least three children, two of whom did not survive infancy, one who did:

    • b. at Virginia on 3 October 1905 (SSDI)
    • d. on July 1969 (SSDI)
