Our Shaw's Cherokee heritage is said to be thru Solomon Shaw B:1834 in Ashe co. N.C.. He married Mariah Ellen Worley, daughter of Edmond Spencer Worley, and Martha Patsy Moore. Mariah is said to be Cherokee.
Solomon and Mariah had 10 children, one was Rosa Etta Shaw, she married into the Goodwin family, and my husbands mother was born to them. Another one of their daughters was Amanda Ellen Shaw, she married John Henry Glass, son of Lucius Monroe and Catherine Glass. All confusing, I find no physical proof, only family say so.
