  • Notes 
    • These dates do not look accurate. The story from Sunshine parks family knowledge was that prudence and William were married and William H was born in 1808. William Maxwell then served in the War of 1812, and upon his return John Doak was born. Soon after William Maxwell was involved with the slave girls and prudence was so mad that she roda a horse to Lebonon, Tenn (the Co. seat) and tore up the marriage license and from then on considered herself divorced. William Maxwell moved on to Illinois and Prudence always lived with William Sr. and family for the rest of her life, moving to Illinois with them.
