Notes for Joshua Shaw

Descendants of Seth Shaw b. 1707 Queenstown, Ireland; d. 28 Mar 1798 Palmer, Hampden Co., Massachusetts. These Shaw's were among the first inhabitants of Palmer and Brimfield. Some went to Monson.

Ancestor connection: Clarinda Cummings Shaw b. 3 AUG 1817 Ware, Hampshire Co., Massachusetts d. 7 Mar 1878 St. Cloud, Stearns Co., Minnesota m. Est 1836 David Stiles (abt 1812-1895). She daughter of Levi Shaw b. 17 Nov 1783 Monson, Hampden Co., Massachusetts; d. 1839 Bath, Steuben Co., New York; m. Phila Merritt b. 22 Apr 1793; d. 1859. Levi was son of David Shaw, grandson of Seth Shaw.

Surprisingly, I have been unable to find any consolidated family history for these Shaw's, which appear to constitute substantial numbers and influence in Palmer and Monson. The History of Palmer Massachusetts by J. H. Temple supplies some information about about Seth and family. Information about descendants and currently known family links are based upon various vital records from the towns of Hampden County, Massachusetts and censuses811
