Old Chester, PA: Biographical Sketches
(A biographical sketch taken from One Hundred Years, The Delaware County National Bank Chester, PA 1814-1914)
Nimrod Maxwell (1815, 18-21) came
to Chester from Huntingdon county early in 1814. On March 2 of that year,
Major William Anderson sold to Maxwell the Columbia
House, and he conducted the tavern until 1821, when he leased it to John
J. Thurlow. The family was exceedingly popular in the borough. Nimrod
Maxwell died in 1829, insolvent, and at the suit of The Bank of Delaware
County, April 12, 1830, the Columbia House was sold by the Sheriff to the
bank. March 13, 1833, that institution conveyed the premises to Thomas
Ewing and Eliza, his wife. Nimrod Maxwell was one of the incorporators of St.
Paul's Church, in 1818, and was a warden and vestryman in that year.
