William Shaw b. 1778 and Mary Lotton (or Lawton) in Lancashire early 1800s

Surnames: Shaw, Lotton, Lawton
I have unconfirmed information that my great-great-great Grandparents on my Father's side were William Shaw and Mary Lotton (more likely, Lawton) who lived around Ashton-Under-Lyne in Lancashire County around 1800. According to the data we have, William was born around 1778. They had seven children, including John (my great-great Grandfather), Robert C., Mary, Hannah and Joseph (all born in Lancashire), Elizabeth (born in or around New Haven, Connecticut) and Martha (born in Knox or Franklin County, Ohio). The family reportedly emigrated to Connecticut in or around 1826, then made their way to the Mt. Vernon area of Knox County, Ohio. I'm hoping that this information might help someone else, as well as connect us with someone who might have a source of documentation for these family members. Hope to hear from someone soon!
