Has any one explored this Shaw in their family tree and got any more information. > Hi Chris, My husband’s immigrant ancestor was Thomas Shaw, born Jan, 1809 in Saddleworth, England. He was a “finisher of cloth,” in England, so it’s possible that he is related to your ancestor, William, since they were both in the cloth industry. He named his second son William. Thomas was married to Ellen Smethurst. They had four children born in Lancashire, England: Elias (my husband’s gr gr grandfather), Anna, William and Mary. They came to Kendall County, Illinois, after 1842 and the next child, Thomas, was born there in 1844. They also had John Cyrenus, Samuel, Elizabeth and Maggie who were born in Kendall County, Illinois. Thomas was a farmer in Illinois. Thomas died in 1891 in Newark, Illinois at the home of his daughter. I can send a copy of Thomas’s obituary if you want it. I do not know the identity of Thomas’s father. Pat Shaw

Annie married Charlie Waco Maxwell from Hart County GA. Both are buried in Andersonville Baptist Church Cemetary in Anderson SC. Charlie had a sister Lula Maxwell who married Henry Tilman Shaw in August 1913 in Fork TWP Anderson County SC. I thought this Henry may be Annie's brother. Annie's parents were Harvey Shaw and Ella Smith. I have no other info on them. Harvey's father was William Shaw. I have no other info on him either. I know this is not much but maybe someone can help me. Thanks. Teresa

    3. Samantha, married January 17, 1833, Warren Shaw, born April 2, 1808, in Johnstown, New York, died June 7, 1889 in Birmingham, Iowa. She died April, 1881. They settled in Mecca, Trumbull County, Ohio. They had five children. From: http://herkimer.nygenweb.net/russia/rusfams4.html Can you get a marriage or death certificate which might name his parents really are? If you know the cemetery perhaps calling them or emailing them they would provide the information? It is easy to mix up the Shaw's because so many were named the same, I am having same issue in Canada. Did you research this Comfort Shaw line to rule this out for certain? Do you have a middle name for Warren Shaw and do you have a maiden name for Persis/Persys by any change. This might help and/or first and middle names of Warren's first few born sons. There is this but it does not seem to point to any of the names you suggest: Nelson was a son of John Shaw, who was also a native of the state of New York, and of Scotch-Irish descent. John Shaw served as a guard for the government during the war of 1812 From: http://www.ingenweb.org/inboone/biographies/biography-shaw-albert.htm it reads : Albert M. Shaw, ninth descendant and youngest living son of Nelson Shaw, born on the old homestead farm in Eagle township, Boone county, Indiana, February 7, 1859, who has in late years obtained possession of said homestead as well as considerable other real estate in and near Zionsville where he now resides, thus demonstrating his business qualifications, perseverance and frugality. He is characterized by all who know him far and near as a typical neighbor, wise and obliging in counsel, always looking to the welfare of others, helping to bear their burdens even at his own sacrifice. At the age of twenty-one years, in 1880, he united in marriage with Laura Smith, daughter of Jesse Smith, attorney of Zionsville. To this union two sons and one daughter were born: Jesse E., deceased at the age of twenty-five years; Hazel, now Mrs. Zeno Vandover, who resides in Hamilton county, three and one-half miles northeast of Zionsville; Pirtel N., who united in marriage with Ivy E., youngest daughter of J. H. Ottinger and they reside three miles southwest of Zionsville on the new home farm. Nelson Shaw, his father, was born near Saratoga Springs, New York, July 11, 1817. At the age of eight years, he with his parents emigrated to Ohio, near Clarksville, and at the age of thirteen, in 1830, he came with his parents to Eagle township, Boone county, Indiana. He located on the farm which Newton Carter now owns. Nelson was a son of John Shaw, who was also a native of the state of New York, and of Scotch-Irish descent. John Shaw served as a guard for the government during the war of 1812. He was the father of four children, viz., John; Nelson, father of Albert M.; Laura J.; and Amanda. He lived to the advanced age of ninety-one years and spent his last days with his two children, John and Nelson. His wife died at the age of seventy years. They were devout Christians of the Methodist faith and were fine types of sterling pioneers. When twenty-two years old, Nelson Shaw married Sarah Hartman who was born in North Carolina, April 24, 1818. She was a daughter of John and Nancy Hartman. It was in 1830 that the Hartman family made the overland journey from the far southland to Indiana and located in Pike township, Marion county. Here her parents spent the rest of their lives. To Nelson Shaw and wife ten children were born. There were seven sons and three daughters, namely: John W., deceased; James, deceased; Louisa; David N., deceased; William M.; Thomas M.; Sarah E., deceased; Anna, deceased; Albert M.; and a son who died in infancy. Nelson Shaw died at the age of eighty-years, after a successful life as a farmer. His good wife died at the age of seventy-seven years. They were both highly esteemed and influential in local affairs. They were prominent workers in the Methodist church. Thus, we see that Albert M. Shaw inherited from his ancestors, strong christian character and business ability. The wise counsel and cooperation of his estimable wife have been indispensable helps in his life's work. He and his family are strong workers in the Methodist church, yet he shares in his liberality to the support of other neighboring churches. What are some of the names of the children of Warren and his wife?

    1. [SHAW] John (Johannes) Shaw buried 1729 Congleton or Astbury
    2. Di & Al Comley
    3. I'm looking for the burial of a John Shaw, aged at least 69 of Congleton in 1729. He was most likely buried at either Congleton or Astbury. I have the CD of the Astbury parish records and there is a burial of a John Shaw, Schoolmaster at Congleton (also on IGI) in 1729 but I don't think this is him as he described himself as a yeoman in his will. There was another record in 1727 but his will clearly says it was made in 1728/9 and I wouldn't be surprised if there were some mention of "formerly of Midgebrook" in any entry. Unfortunately the Astbury records are practically unreadable that year but the Bishops' transcripts may be better if anyone happens to have searched them for Shaw's around that year. Any assistance very much appreciated, Regards, Di
