Hi Josef. It appears a lot of researchers have been looking online for his origins but without success as I don't even find conjecture at places like Family Search. I would suggest that you contact the most logical place he may have been born Greene County, Ohio. I also think the border between Clinton and Greene counties changed a time or two. Unfortunately, I am not finding the name and contact person there who did a little research for me but I think contacting some of these people may steer you in the right direction:

In searching some period books on Greene County (there are several), I found only one mention of him and it is in relation to the Maxwell family. You probably already have this but you can find it here:
