I am looking for any info about my grandfather, John Shaw who was from West Meath, Ireland.I do not know what his parents names were but I do know his maternal grandmother was a Nugent who died June 15,1872. Here is a list of the Shaw children. Pat Shaw b.5/13/1856 Ann Shaw b.10/16/1857 Katie Shaw b.10/16/1859 John Shaw(my grandfather) b. 12/17/1861 Mary Shaw b.11/17/1863 Bridget Shaw b. 12/17/1866 or 1868(can't make out the old writing) Peter Shaw b. 5/2/1870 James Shaw b. 5/8/1873 I do know that Ann, Katie and John are siblings but I am not sure if the others are siblings or first cousins Ann and Katie both left Ireland July 18,1874 or 1876 and landed in N.Y. July27th .John emigrated in 1882 and joined his sisters in Troy N.Y. where I am from. John married a Johanna McGrath from Emly and they had 4 children . My grandfather died very early in life from a work accident so I do not know much of his early life. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Mary Welch Hayes
