In my search to find the parents of Nancy Shaw (1799-1864) who married James
Ireland (1790-1855) I have come across the following tid bits - Maybe they
will help but they all appear to be in a time frame after the death of your
Timothy? ! * ? * ! I have much on Nancy Shaw Ireland's descendants but
nothing on her parents except for a note passed on to me by another
researcher some years back that her mother may have been Dorcas (Mosher)
Shaw - I don't believe she is the same Dorcas as Dorkass wife of Joshua
Shaw???? All this very sketchy to me??????? Joshua's 1824 Putnam Co. probate
file does not list a daughter Nancy! Dorkass is named as the wife with whom
Joshua now lives when Joshua makes his will 27 August 1824.

Looking for information on the ancestry & descendants of Timothy:
1. TIMOTHY1 SHAW died 1779 in New Lotts, Queens Co.?, Long Island, New York..
Notes for TIMOTHY SHAW:
1) Muster Rolls of New York Provincial Troops, 1755-1764, Collections of the New York Historical Society for the Year 1891, Committee on Publications: Edward F. De Lancey, Daniel Parish, Jr., Charles Isham, Publication Fund Series, New York: Printed for the Society, MDCCCXCII.
"Intoduction. This volume contains the Muster Rolls of the various regiments and smaller organizations of troops raised and put in the field by the Province of New York, which served during the Seven Years' War in America, or as it was later called, "The Old French War"- the war which terminated forever the power of France in the New World.
They cover the whole period of that war from 1755 to 1763, except for those for 1757, which have disappeared from the archives of the State of New York at Albany, where all of the others are perserved as originally filed in the office of the Provincial Secretary of the Colony of New York.
These documents and papers contain a mass of information of much value, and not easily accessible heretofore to the historical inquirer. They are as follows:
1. A list of all the acts of the legislature of the province -seventeen in number-under which the various regiments and smaller bodies of troops were raised, equipped, paid, and subsisted. This gives the year and day of the month in which each act was passed, thus enabling them to be consulted in any one of the volumes of the colonial statutes of New York, ancient or modern. (p.xii)
2. The offical orders, directions, and proclamations of the Governors James De Lancy, Sir Charles Hardy, and Cadwallader Colden, during the war, relative to the troops, the regiments, their officers, their movements, their destinations, and the events of the campaigns; in short, an official history of the direction of the war in New York, of which little has been before known. Interspersed in these documents are a few excerpts from newspapers of the day, called forth by their issues or by specific incidents of the war. (p. xii)
3. Lists of commissioned officers as far as they could be obtained from records, and lists of names of non-commissioned officers and privates, found in the Commissaries, John Cruger, Beverley Robinson, and Peter van Brugh Livingston, who formed a joint commission. From the same accounts, lists of the names of deceased soldiers from 1756 to 1762 whose heirs received the pay due them at the time of their death. (p. xii)
4. Lists of deserters, and notices and advertisements in relation to deserters during the war. (p. xii)
5. Lists of commissions signed by the Governors. (p. xii)
6. A book of military appointments and other military information in 1759, 1760, and 1761, kept by John Godby, a clerk in the office of the Secretary of the province, in the performance of his official duties. (p. xii)
7. Lists of the commissions issued for the provincial regiments, dated April 6, 1761 and October 8, 1761. (p. xii)
8. Lists of warrants issued to captains for bounty and enlistments monies, with the amount of each warrant in New York currency. (p. xii)

pp. 276-277, MUSTER ROOLS OF NEW YORK PROVINCIAL TROOPS, 1760, MEN'S NAMES ... #66 - Timothy Shaw, Date of Inlistmt. - May 1st., Age - 45, Where born - Ireland, Trade - Labourer, Out of what Company of Militia - Campbell, Officer who enlisted - Capt. Schuyler ...
2) In the New York Militia Rolls Index 1664-1775, under the "Index Of Names" , there is listed a "Shaw, Timothy ............... 567". This I believe to be our Timothy Shaw. The purpose of this index was to supply the name of ever person who was carried on every Military Roll of record in the Province of New York from the year 1664, when the English took possession to 1775, when the Colonies arose in revolt. The names covered all the muster rolls that were printed in the Second and Third Annual Reports of the State Historian, known as Colonial Series, Vol. I and II. The figures "I" and "II" that followed a name, indicated the volume in which that names appeared. The General Index for the Third Annual Report, known as Volume II Colonial Series followed, and begun on page 1131.

Proceed in Of Loyalist Commission, St. Johns, 1797, Vol. XVI, before Commissioner Pemberton, Claimants, MS 19.
New Claim - February 23, 1787.
Clamt. Says. He went up the River. He only came down once & staid a short time. Is settled in Queens Co.
He lived in Dutchess Co. Joined the Brit. Govert. In New York. Had from the first declared in favr. Of the Brit. Govert. He was confined several times which obliged him to go within the lines for protection. His family were sent to him in 1777.
Had a farm in Dutchess Co., inherited it on his Father s death.
Produces Deed From in Philip Philips to Timothy Shaw, Father of Claimt., of his Right & Title to Improvements on Gregory farm forever. There is no date to this assignment but Claimt. Says it was 15 years ago.
Says his Father was in Possession for 7 yrs. Before the was. His Father died on Long Island, 1779, without a will. It seems from Claimt's account that Gregory had a Lease, but Mr. Philips, the Landlord, turned out Gregory and then gave the improvements to Claimt's father.
His father made no will. Claimt. is his only son. Has a sister living in the States.
There appears by survey 186 acres.
His father had been a Loyalist and was confined on which he went within ye lines, where he died. Does not know who has the land. Says his father improved the place greatly after he got it.
Valued it a 500L.
The stock was chiefly his father. Some part his own. It consisted of: -
4 horses, 15 cows, 2 pair of oxen, 8 fat cattle, 25 head cattle, 25 sheep, 14 hogs, corn in the barn, hay, farming utensils. Of these 1 horse, 8 cows, 7 young cattle, 14 sheep, 10 hogs, wheat belonged to Caimt. The rest belonged to Claimt. The rest belonged to his father. All this was taken away after he went away.
Alexr. Brown, Wits:
Knew Timothy Shaw, Father of Claimt. He was Loyal. Went within the Lines for Protection. Claimt. was also Loyal & went on that acct. within the Lines. The Father died at Long Island. claimant is his only son. He has a sister in the States.
Knew the Farm. Thinks it was given to Timothy Shaw about 1766. There was a mob by the Tenants against the Landlord, Mr. Philips. Timothy Shaw was one who assisted Philips for which & other services he gave him the farm. Witness understood that Philips gave the Gregories a Farm elsewhere, but they still made a claim and in 1766 they turned the old man out, but he got Possession again & then staid till he went within the Brit. Lines.
Is told the Gregories are not in Possessions. The farm was about 200 acres, chiefly improved.
Knew the Stock. Heard of its being seized & sold. 30 or 40 head of
cattles, 4 horses, 1 yoke of oxen, 13 sheep, 10 Hogs, Hay, Understood it was seized & sold by Commissioners of forfeiture. (Probably 1782, William S. Pelletreau in his book History of Putnam County s on page 282 mentions land seizures and then the selling of.)
4) William S. Pelletreau, History of Putnam County, New York, With Bibliographical Sketches Of Its Prominent Men (Philadephia: W.W. Preston, 1886, ISBN 0-89062-006-7), refers to Timothy Shaw: -
4.1) Timothy Shaw defends the land claims of of the Philipse Family against the Nimham First Nations in an "Affidavit of Timothy Shaw, 1767". Being an illiterate man, but having the oral histoical knowledge of the area, Timothy marked the legally prepared, sworn "Affidavit" with his mark: "X". This Shaw Affidavit will be referred to a number of times in land disputes prior to the American Revolution. It lists the early settlers, where the Nimham lived and when the first settlers arrived. Basically it stated that the Nimham had no claims to the lands held by the Philipse Family. Putnam County basically covered the area that was originally the Philipse Family Patent. (Pelletreau, pp. 77, 78, 79, 120 &121)
4.2) Timothy Shaw made his home at the north end of the lake which from him took the name of Shaw s Pond. which continued to bear his name till modern times, when it changed to the more romantic and musical title of Lake Gleneida. As in his affidavit made in 1767 he states that he was well acquainted with all the settlements that had been made in these parts within twenty five years, it is evident that he must have been here as early as 1742, and he doubtless has the honour of being the first in the present village of Carmel. (Pelletreau, p. 282)
4.3) In old burying ground on the Belden farm, at the southwest corner of Lake Gleneida, and where the slaves of the Belden family were buried in a small enclosure surrounding a single grave and a head stone recording the death of Deborah Shaw, who died May 5th., 1824, aged 84. She was a white woman who lived with several families. She requested to be buried in that place because, as she said, "my ancestors lie there." It is probable that she was the daughter of Timothy Shaw and that a family burying place was there in early times. (Pelletreau, p. 282)
4.4) Lake Gleneida.-This beautiful lake, which is one of the principal beauties of the landscape, was in earlier days known as Shaw's Pond, from Timothy Shaw, who was one of the earliest settlers in the town. This name, though of time honored antiquity, was too plain and unpoetical to suit the fastidious taste of modern times. Accordingly a meeting was held on the evening of December 21st., 1852, for the bestowing a new name upon what was justly considered the beauty of Carmel. (Pelletreau, pp. 297, 298) Researcher: George-Terrence Hall Shaw, georshaw(a)enoreo.on.ca, 162 Bay St., Cobourg, Ontario. K9A 1P6.
5) Saw this reference to a map of New Lotts in Queens, Long Island, New York: Johnson's 1873 map of land divisions of plot owners with main street dividers. Street names don't change much with time so you may find something of interest even though the map is one hundred (100) years later. This is probably where Timothy Shaw died. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~blkyn/map/newlots.html (Janet Newman, janet.t.newman(a)worldnet.att.net, 26 April 2000)

1) LOYALIST PAPERS 150 YEARS OLD

Hello, Kris. Would appreciate any information you're willing to share on
the Baddeau family in Putnam/Dutchess Co.
I'm trying to identify Ferris Hill's wife Mary, b. 9 Apr 1772; prob.
married in Frederickstown, Dutchess (now Patterson, Putnam), abt. 1792
One family source said she was a BARTOW, another said BARSTO; another
BARLOW. Someone else said Ferris Hill married Betsey BARTO.
I've just learned that BADEAU is sometimes misspelled as BARTO, so I
thought I'd inquire.
Kris, They have been filmed, and are available through Family History Centers. Louanne
