Maxwell was the youngest of eight. His 2 oldest siblings William Robertson, 26 Feb 1880, and Margaret Maxwell Robertson, 28 Aug 1881, were born in Scotland, so his parents must of immigrated to the United States between 28 Aug 1881 and 15 Mar 1884 when his sister Janet Miller Robertson was born. His other siblings were: Mary Spence Robertson, 2 Sep 1885; Annie Robertson, 21 May 1887; James Park Robertson, 6 Apr 1889; Andrew Young Robertson, 6 Feb 1891.
