There is a Gabriel Shaw in the 1830 census of Saline Co Illinois Saline Co is right next door to Franklin Co. Illinois where Silas Mercer Williams and Francis Shaw Williams Settled.
Pg. 277, Line 13
I am looking for Jesse Shaw born about 1780 in NC and died 1837 in Saline Co., Illinois. There has to be a connection.
What do you know about Gabriel Shaw?
