I have previously noticed your the Shaw family, and have wondered
whether they might have been related to an Anson Shay (sometimes spelled
Shaw) whose daughter Easter (or Esther) married into my Smith family
from Putnam Co. Anson was b. 1769, d 1840.
Does this name appear in anything you have?

Thank you in advance, George Shaw, 4th. great grandson
P.S. I strongly disagree with Kenneth Linwood
Shaw's assertion that Timothy Shaw (1715-1779) was a son of Israel Shaw, even though
he quotes me as a source for the
Shaw Family information that I have sent him.
His allegations are as follows: Father: Israel Shaw b: 29 JAN 1659/60 in
Page 20, Little Compton Town Records, Newport County, Rhode Island, New
England; Mother: Mercy Tallman b: 1674 in of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany. This is where I
find his research: "John
Shaw of Plymouth Plantation in Progress" flawed. Check: Muster Rolls of New York
