The Maultsby's were Quakers from Pennsylvania. In the early 1700's they settled in Bladen County, NC in the 
Carver's Creek area. The cemetery where the early Maultsby's are buried had only field rock markers and all 
the stones were pulled up before the cemetery was cataloged.

"Mary" Rhodes July 19, 1689 daughter of John Rhodes and Elizabeth Jessup. She was born November 30, 1662 in 
Chesterfield Derbyshire England/Chesterfield, and died December 06, 1706 in Philadelphia PA.
