ORSON SHAW survey 1849

Does anyone have any information about whether or not Captain Orson Shaw (Sumter, AL) ever lived on the land he was awarded for his service to the Republic in 1836? I show that he returned to Alabama after the War for Independence and did not return. The land was near the border with San Jacinto County. Peach Creek ran through the middle of the property. I am attaching the 1853 Montgomery county cadastral map.
