Maxwell of Flemington, sister of Lydia Maxwell, and brother of William Maxwell);  1880 Census, Series T9, Roll 1161, p.379B (M. McCartney (age 64) and L.D. Maxwell (age 59), sisters, with the McCartney children);   Michael C. Schrader, Bench and Bar, Vol. V of Two Hundred Years of Life in Northampton County, PA. A Bicentennial Review  92 (Northampton County Bicentennial Commission 1976)(Henry D. Maxwell was Washington McCarthy’s brother-in-law).   

See also Schrader, Bench and Bar, supra at 88, which quotes at length a 1948 speech by Douglas M. Moffat (Judge McCarthy’s grandson) to the effect that the Judge “married my grandmother, Elizabeth Maxwell, in the Presbyterian Church at Easton on April 18, 1839.”  Mrs. McCartney’s Obituary (cited above) listed her name as “Mary E. Maxwell”, and she must have been known within the family by her middle name of Elizabeth, rather than her first name of Mary.
