Am looking for ancestry of Robert Gould Shaw b. 6/4/1776 Gouldsboro, Hancock Co., ME, a wealthy merchant of Boston, MA, d. 5/3/1853, m. 2/4/1809 Elizabeth Willard Parkman; his son Francis b. 1809/10 m. 6/9/1835 Sarah Blake Sturgis, parents of Col. Robert Gould Shaw b. 10/10/1837 Boston, Suffolk Co., MA, d. in Civil War @ Fort Wagner, S.C. 7/17/1863, commanded 54th Massachusetts regt.

Francis Shaw I's parents are Thomas Shaw (b. 11/19/1700 Boston) Jane (unknown). I have 6 of their children.
Thomas' parents are Nathaniel Shaw (b. 5/15/1677 Boston) Margaret Jackson;

Can anyone out there confirm this info? Especially from Francis I b. 1721 to his ancestor John Shaw b. c1617.
I am writing a book on the SHAWE/SHAW family descendants of Thomas Shaw b. 1538 England his grandson Abraham Shaw b. 1585 Northowram, Halifax, Yorkshire, England was 1st generation Shaw who settled in Watertown, MA moved to Dedham, MA. I am a descendant of Abraham's son John Shaw b. 1630 wh. m. Alice Phillips, d/o Deacon Nicholas Phillips. Three "Mayflower" men are my ancestral grandparents: Thomas Rogers, John Alden Francis Cooke. Anyone out there interested in adding information? I will respond to queries also.
