U.S. States: Minnesota: Anoka County
I'm looking for information on Emma M. SHAW (b. abt 1849, in New York), daughter of S. W. (b. abt 1824, in Maine) & Lois M. (b. abt 1824, in Maine). S. W. was a doctor. In 1853 the family moved from Putnam co., New York, to Anoka co., Minnesota. Here Shaw owned 160 acres near the Mississippi River which was platted as "Shaw's Addition to Anoka".
I've found the family in the 1850 & 1860 censuses, & in a history of Anoka co. I recently did a search of Anoka co. records at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I'm compiling a brief biography of Emma, so I'm focusing in on her.
Is this family familiar to anyone?
