Maxfield Name Index


As of 3 January 2017 I had 29,723 persons in my Maxfield database. Not all of these are included on this website.

To locate a person, use the search mechanism on your browser (Control+F on Internet Explorer). You can search by name, or by year of birth or death. If the name you found is highlighted as a link, click the link and go to it. If it is not highlighted, go to the next highlighted link above under which the name you are interested is indented. However, not all persons named here are on the website at the present time. If you have any difficulty or wish further information, or have corrections or information to share, contact me, Charles A. Maxfield, at chuckmaxfield@gmail.com .

POLICY ON LIVING PERSONS: In the past I have tried to follow the practice of many on-line genealogies to exclude information on living persons. However, if I do not have death information, I do not know if a person is living or dead. Also, much of my information comes from on-line sources or other sources of public information that are available to anyone. So I have not really been protecting anyone's privacy. So now I include all persons. I exclude addresses and locations of living persons (except where they appear in blockquotes, such as published obituaries). If anyone does not want any information on you or your family posted here, please contact me, and I will remove it. Perhaps by including the names of the living, it will help some readers to locate where they relate.

WARNING: This page does not indicate the quality of evidence, or lack thereof, for the information presented. Consult the individual pages or contact Chuck Maxfield for documentation.
