My GGrandmother and GGrandfather, Mary and Jesse Shaw reportedly moved to Crawford County around 1855. My Grandfather, Jesse Shaw, was their tenth child and was reportedly born there in Crawford County.
Mary Shaw's obituary reports that the family moved back to Indiana when Jesse Sr. suffered failing health but that she returned with the family to Crawford County after his death in 1862 and lived there for several years and then briefly in Iowa before moving to Washington State in 1878.
I have no additional information about their time in Wisconsin but would appreciate any that is available.
Jesse Shaw Jr was reportedly born there on 2/6/1855. I did find records of a Land Grant that Jesse purchased om 1858 at NENE Sec 27, township 9-N, Range 4-W for 40 acres though I do not have the resources to identify that location. Assistance with that would also be appreciated.
I did email a volunteer in the area who was, unfortunately, unable to find any information on the birth record. I was really trying to find anything that could give me a birth date for Jesse Sr.
