ok, here goes..i'm not sure if i am doing this right...bear with me...
I am new to this geneology stuff, and this is my starting point.
I am looking for information anyone may have on the Shaw and Frisbee lines...
I am the granddaughter of the late Benjamin Shaw, b. June 18, 1913, d. Jan. 10, 2003,
married to Dorothy Meres Oct. 18, 1933. My father is their son, Floyd Shaw, born July 18,
1938 (?) now of Cookeville, Tennessee. Other children to them are Benjamin Shaw, II, Lynn
Shaw of Troy, William Shaw of Sidney, and Jane (Shaw) Crooks of Hudson, Fla. I was able
to gather this info from grampa's obit in the Daily star, which I found on the
internet, which somehow lead me to this site.
I am also the granddaughter of the late Ernest Forsyth frisbee, birthdate and date of
death unknown to me, married to Doris Whitney (?) marrieage date unknown. My mother is
Lila (Frisbee) Shaw, their daughter, born May 17, 1944. Their other daugher is my Aunt
Sheila (Frisbee) Taylor of Lavonia.
Benjamin and Dorothy shaw resided in the town of Meredith, or Delhi (as I beleive their
mailing address was), his widow, my gramma, now lives in Sidney, and I am quite sure
Ernest Frisbee resided in Oneonta, where my gramma Doris (surname now Gula) still lives.
Also, I am told there is a place in NY, possibly in or around Delaware Co. called the
Frisbee House which contains family momentos and memorabilia...anyone have info confirming
We moved to TN in the '70's, so I have met very few of my relatives. Though I
have heard a few names mentioned in the past, but no one in my family, especially the ones
here in Tennessee, seems to have much memory as to our history, so I am taking it upon
myself to find out what I can. I have little contact with relatives still in NY as I do
not know most of them personally, so any littles tidbits of info anyone has and is willing
to take the time to share with me will be greatly appreciated.
A sincere thanks in advance to any who may reply,
Rebecca (Shaw) Helton
