Ann Rogerson Shaw
Born 1799 or 1797 in Sutton near Hull Yorkshire England. She married
John Shaw in Aldborough near Hull Yorkshire England in 1818..
She died in Smiths Falls in January 1894 and her obituary says that
she was the oldest resident in Smiths Falls when she died. It also said that
the family moved to Smiths Falls in 1864. Some of the children had moved to
New York State. They made their home on Poonamalee Rd outside Smiths Falls
for many years. It was from that home that Ann Rogerson Shaw was buried in
the first half of January 1894. They had 12 or 13 children.

This is Richard Shaw son of Ann Rogerson Shaw and John Shaw of Yorkshire England.
Richard was born in Swine E Yorkshire in early 1824 and was christened at St.
Mary's Church Feb 27 1824. He moved with his parents and siblings to
Quebec in about 1830 and the family lived in Argenteuil for many years. His
parents eventually joined him and some of his siblings in Smiths Falls in 1864. Richard was a blacksmith.
Richard married Hannah (who may have been Hannah WILSON since their first
child is named John or Jack Wilson Shaw). She apparently died quite young.
Richard then married (about 1855) Mary JOHNSON who was from Ireland. Mary
was born 1834 and died 1891. She is buried with Richard and his parents in
St John's Cemetery Smiths Falls.

He married Barbara CONDIE (he may have married two different women by this name!) and later Christina CAMPBELL (called Tina). He and Tina are buried in St John's Smiths Falls. Children of George & Barbara Condie: Mary Gertrude b. April 5 1892 (child in picture); Clarence b April 14 1897; Harold b July 23 1895; Eric b Nov 15 1899 - buried with his mother in Maple Vale Cemetery - he died at age 2.
