Before we get completely away from the subject, could some of you discuss the
appearance and history of Quakers in Ireland. One of my ancestors, Samuel
Shaw, was born in 1709 or 1710 in Antrim and came to PA in 1729 bringing a
certificate from the monthly meeting in Lisburn. His descendants in America
are well documented, but I have been unable to trace him in Ireland.
Unfortunately, some of those great Quaker records are missing (cannot find a
birth notation for him). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
The Shaw name can be Scottish or English (or Welsh?) Margaret Falley notes
some Shaws in her Quaker section, but I would like to be able to find some
evidence as to just who his parents were. There are also Shaws mentioned in
"A Great Cry of Opression" Does anyone know where a copy of this book can be
Thanks for any discussion that ensues......
