Tried to email you but your box is full.

I have been researching the Shawens as one of my ancestral relatives Jane W. Hamilton of Loudoun Co, VA married George W. Shawen and they lived in Licking Co, OH; Cass Co, IL; and Barton Co, MO. I think your "Carl Oliver Shawen" is actually their youngest son Charles Carroll Shawen, born abt. 1842 Licking Co, OH.

I have a marriage record for him in Menard Co, IL 1863:
Illinois Statewide Marriage Index
Groom               Bride
               Date               Volume        Page        Lic No.        County
SHAWN, CHARLES S MYERS, ELIZABETH 1863-12-24       A       254       1693       MENARD

and the following census records:

1850 OH Licking Co Chatham p.443
George W. Shawen 53 M teacher MD
Jane W. 51 F VA
Catharine 20 F VA
George W. 12 M OH
Charles C. 8 M OH

1860 IL Cass Co Richmond p.140 indexed as “Sherven”
George W. Shawen 63 M MD
Jane W. 60 F VA
Kate J. 24? F VA
George 22 M OH
Charles C. 19 OH
William M. Clark 7 M OH
Amelia C. Clark 11 F OH

George W. Shawen b. abt. 1797 MD d. aft. 1871 Probably Barton Co, MO, was the son of Cornelius Shawen 1772-1820 of Loudoun Co, VA and Anna Maria Mahn or Maine.

George & Jane Shawen had four children that I've been able to find:
James William Shawen 1822-1896
Catherine J. Shawen 1830-1915 m. Jeptha Dudley Pilcher
George W. Jr. Shawen 1838-aft. 1870
Charles C. Shawen 1842- aft. 1900.

I can send you more details if you're still interested. Do you have details on Charles/Carl's death in the mine accident in California? I am very interested in finding out more about that.
