Shaw Family From Scotland To USA
Posted by: Rick Fritch (ID *****3186) Date: February 25, 2014 at 14:24:32

I'm wondering if someone can help me. I'm looking for any additional information on the family of my ancestor, Jane Shaw of North Carolina (and Texas), whose family roots lie in Scotland. Below is a family tree that I found on (I can't vouch for its authenticity). Its the most information that I have seen to date on this family. It begins with Jane's son, William Tucker Messer. I hope someone can help fill in the gaps for this family.

William Tucker Messer

Mother: Mary Shaw

Note: Came from Scotland in 1739 to land overlooking the Cape Fear river.

This is all that I can find on the family, that appears to be at least half accurate. I hope someone can support or refute this information, or provide any additional information on the Shaw family.

Sincerely, Rick
