SHAW Family

First Generation

1. William1 Shaw birth date unknown.

The first reference to William Shaw is the Augusta County, Virginia Order Book, where on 20 August 1748 "Iron collar about neck of William Shaw, servant of Daniel Morley to be taken off." [Lyman Chalkey's "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia"]. "Wm. Shaw of Capt. Stephens' Compy." appears on James McCorkle's list of those who took the Oath of Allegiance to the American cause in Montgomery County, Virginia on 5 December 1777. In addition to his daughter Dorcas, he probably had a son James Shaw, who was surety for Dorcas' marriage in 1775. My guess is that William Shaw was a Scot and was deported to Virginia following the collapse of the rising of 1745 in favor of the Stuart dynasty.

William Shaw had the following child:

child 2 i. Dorcas2 Shaw was born in Montgomery County, VA 1754. She married John Hildreth in Montgomery County, VA, February 9, 1775. John was born in Cornwall, NY 1747.
