I have received from the Palmer MA Town Clerk a printed list of Palmer Births, Palmer Marriages and Palmer Deaths.
Within the lists I have found that Catherine and Sam{ue}l Jr. Shaw gave birth to David, Dec. 28, 1751; Mary, March 2. 1745; Prudence, May 24, 1755; Samuel, July 4, 1753; Sarah, Aug. 21, 1758; W{illia}m, Jan. 3, 1749. The Jr. is used in only one of those lists for the father...Sam(ue)l Jr. but since the mother is always listed as Catherine, I feel it is likely the same person.
I do not find any listing of Billy's and Sophiah's children in the Palmer lists. Under Palmer Marriages, there appears: Catherine (Cahhing) and Samuel Shaw, Jr., on June 7, 1754*
and at the bottom of the page of those listed is this notation: *Intention not recorded.
I interpret that, perhaps incorrectly, to mean that they "formalized" their union on that date or recorded their previous marriage since they had been having children for the previous 9 or so years.
I will respond to your email given.
