Isham Shaw(isom isam)

I am seeking any info on the family of isham shaw, i have found him on the 1870, 1880, and and the 1900 census. due to misspelling of his name he has been found as Isom and Isam. His children from his wife Mary Jane are readily found in on the above census dates as well as 1910, 1920, etc. with their own families. due to the fact Isham had about 15-18 children after the age of 50, with a wife twenty yrs younger, I/WE must assume he possibly had a wife and family while in slavery or there after. while the blight of slavery may be horrific in its own right its reality cannot or must not be allowed to be a final barrier to finding our family. he was born in Tennessee. Verbal family history implies he and his family may have had their freedom prior to 1765 if you have a isham shaw in your family history and would like to part in a DNA sampling to determine possible relation please respond to above email S
