I also have a Cornelius Shaw, who was born in the late 1700's in Rhode Island. His siblings were Daniel, James, Anthony, Elery, Jane, Caroline, Eliza, Mary, Zeluma and Hannah. The only one that I know about was Daniel Shaw (1786 - 1867). Daniel married Phebe Wait of Rhode Island. They also lived in Washington County, NY; then Saratoga Springs, NY; before settling in Newfane, Niagara County, NY. Daniel and Phebe had Amy, Charles, Walter, Jerome, Asenath, Eliza, Harriet, Mary, Betsey, William H. (b. 2/11/1828 in Saratoga), Caroline and Emily. The first Neff in are family was born about 1900, I am gathering information on him at this time. Anyway it sounds like there may be a connection between families. Where is Glen Aubrey, NY.
