    Notes 
    • This information is from Sue Raub Standridge; it is unverified but interesting; I'm looking for citations for all of it:

      Adam Maxwell b. 1752 is father of Jane Maxwell. Online in Armstrong Co. Pa. geneology records you can find Janes mother was Margaret Elizabeth Wallace b 1738 Frankiln, PA and D. 1833 Armstrong, Co. Pa. Margaret Wallaces mother was Margaret Painter. Adam Maxwell has court papers online verifying his giving of Jane Maxwell in marriage to George Cook, who was related to a former President Munroe family member and Jermiah Cook and ??Munroe. The reason that I know this is my aunt gave me the geneology and we are related to at least 7+ former presidents including current ones through Munroe. The geneology you seek goes like this: George Cook m. Jane Maxwell, had Adam, James, John, Andrew Jackson, George, JR, Elisabeth, William, Jermiah, Alexander, Thomas, Samuel Cook then for MY family, Samuel Cook Married Margaret Walker who had Lee, John, Marg. Jane, Mary Cook, who Mary Cook first Married Richard Heilman, and then Phillip Miller, who both had children, who Essie Miller was one of, that m. Warren Raub my great grandddad with other children, and my grand dad Clarence John Lee Raub, Sr and Clarence John Lawerence Raub, Jr. then me! Here is a tip and trivia: George Cook was a revolutionary war spy and related to James Munroe. James Munroe in his earlier accounts identified George Cook as a relative, and some later works took him out of James Munroe's biography. But if you are related to Adam or Jane, like our family, you are related to over 7 former presidents, and the current ones as well.
