To all Barber and Shaw researchers!
I have a brick wall a major problem I am now grasping at staws after many years of researching! I feel certain his Mother was a Barber? Perhaps someone out there has a Female Barber that married into a Shaw line?
Arnold Barber Shaw states on all census (but the 1860 says Mass) that he was born in NY. In an 1870 NY State census from Catturagus he states he was born in Rensselear Co NY. He married a Judith Davis who was born in Plainsfield Otsego Co NY in 1825. They were living in Ellington Chautaqua Co Ny near Judith's Father John Davis and his 2nd wife Polly Colburn in 1850. He named his children names that are not common to Shaw lines nor Davis lines? He was in the Civil war discharge was honerable. His vocation was Blacksmith.
Judith Davis and Arnold Barber Shaw had the following daughters
1. Laura A. abt 1845 Ellington Chautauqua NY
2. Jane A. at 1847 somewhere in Michigan ?
3. Cynthia L. or (Sintha) born 1849 Ellington
4. Milla A. 1852 Ellington
Arnold Barber Shaw's wife Judith died April 28 1869
by 1870 he was in Catturagus Co and remarried to a Louisa J.
and had a son Arnold Barber Shaw Jr.( abt 1871) 1880 he was in Greenfield township Erie Co Pa. In 1900 in Carroll Twp chautauqua Co NY Arnold Barber Shaw says he was born March 1824 which is consistant with all the other census. His son Arnold Barber Shaw jr named a son Howard Barber. so feel certain it would be Arnold Seniors Mother.
I have been unable to place Arnold with any of the Shaw's from Rensselear Co NY I have other Shaw lines from this region and he does not belong? I can't seem to find his grave site ? His grandson Howard Barber Shaw married a Camillia Barber from Catturagus Co NY. Any idea's from anyone?
Thanks so much for any imput on this
