I was told that Robert Gould Shaw is my great, great, great Grandfather. My mothers, mothers name was Shaw. Just wondering if its true and how I go about finding out.
Also, one of my grandmothers brothers owned alot of land in southern Ohio, the Govenor at the time ask to purchase some of the land for the Shawnee National Park. My gma's brother had 19 children. He introduced every child to the Goveno, they were lined up oldest to youngest. When the Govenor returned, he was able to name each child from memory. Because of that, he donated a huge piece of land and did not sell it to him.
