Surnames: SHAW, PHINNEY
My current genealogical interest is in documenting my maternal great grandmother's SHAW family history. Susan Shaw[1842-1917] was born in Berwick, Nova Scotia to Isaiah Shaw [1798-1874] and his second wife, Sarah Lyons.
Isaiah Shaw was the first child born to David Shaw [1770-1840] and his wife, Desire/Desiah Phinney.
David Shaw's parents, Captain Moses Shaw [1735 - 1821] and Ann Phinney, were married 1762 in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, and came to Granville Township (near Bridgetown) Nova Scotia about 1760, after the expulsion of the Acadians.
The father of Captain Moses Shaw, also called Moses Shaw [1704 -1792] was said to have been a United Empire Loyalist, and may have been the Moses Shaw who received a land grant in what is now St John, New Brunswick in 1784.
The Shaw family goes back to John Shaw, who emigrated to Plymouth Colony from England between 1623-26.
I would like to correspond with anyone who is interested in the same family.
