Areas of Research

See Space: Maple Origins

The progenitor of the Maple family in America, Benjamin Maple Sr, is thought to have come from Ipswitch, England ... but did he really?

See Space:Maple Migrations

Migration of MAPLE families to western Pennsylvania and the Northwest Territory prior to Ohio statehood:

Several of Benjamin Maple Jr's children moved from New Jersey to western Pennsylvania (Greene County and Fayette County) in the 18th century. A close association of these families remained as they migrated further into Ohio (Jefferson County, Columbiana County, and Coshocton County). I am trying to better understand the relationships between these Maple families.

For whatever it's worth, source [DNSP] on Stillwell-411 supports your observation that the Thomas Stillwell who married Alice Throckmorton and Hannah Taylor descended from Richard Stilwell, the first son of Nicholas Stillwell (b. ca. 1606). This is all documented in the research notes section of Stillwell-411.

Please share your ancestry sources for William and Kesiah Larrison Maple's profile. Have found little to nothing for her father George.

Thanks Sharon

Hello Bruce, haven't done much research in recent years but have Maple ancestors from Harrison & Carroll counties in Ohio. We have contributed to Telford Grant Maple's family history book back in the 1990s after I talked with him on the phone. I have had the Family Tree DNA test done a while back also. I am descended from Jacob Maple's son Elijah and then Elijah's daughter, Amanda Ellen Maple who married George Hawk.

Wow bruce that was some important information that fits into the Maple/McCorkhill/ Duncan puzzle I am trying to solve. Thank you for the information!!!
Hi Bruce, 1/2 of my husbands ancestors are from the same Ohio area (Jefferson County, Columbiana County, and Coshocton County, as well as the migration into Carroll, Stark and Harrison and Tuscarawas County). I am trying to better understand the migration patterns of the two migrating communities (one from the Massachusetts/Connecticut /NY to Ohio, the other from Virginia/Pennsylvania to Ohio) as they blended into one.
Thank you for your input for Elizabeth Maple. I hadn't got to that generation yet. ( I am still on Jame's and Jane's' children.) The biographies of the children of William R and Rebecca Maple are still old profiles that I inherited and still need to research. Thank for the heads up! :)
