Earl J Maxwell

Earl J Maxwell was the illegitimate son of Captain Ezekiel “Zeke” Harper, a Confederate guerrilla scout during the American Civil War. His mother was Captain Zeke’s Native American slave.

Earl’s Y-DNA profile was determined from buccal samples from two of his paternal grandsons and is identical to the Y-DNA profile of Captain Zeke, confirming that Captain Zeke was the father of Earl J Maxwell.
