     Roscoe Sellar Duncan Hi Greg,
I was looking at the genealogy you have posted on Rootsweb. I'm helping my
half-brother, Mack Aubrey Duncan, with his genealogy. I don't know if you are
looking for any additional information, but if you are, I have a little-- you
have his great-grandparents listed:

James B. Duncan (~1853-~1925) and Rhoda Melissa Franklin (~1857-~1922). Their
son, Roscoe Seller Duncan (~1885-~1956) and his wife, Josephine (Josie) McGee
(~1885-~1950), were the parents of Mack Aubrey Duncan, Sr. (~1910-~1934). He
married Birdie Jacobs (~1912-~1994), about 1929 in Kaufman Co., Texas.

Cordially,
Valerie Simonton.1

     James S. Shaw Sr. from Mike Shaw mikeshaw@texoma.net on WorldConnect at Rootsweb: [quote]
!I (and many members of the family) spent years looking for the father of Smith Shaw without success. In Oct, 1992, I visited Mississippi and Larry Carter and I, while examining old land records found that Smith Shaw bought land from a James Shaw (land that Larry Carter owns today). Later, I obtained a copy of pages from the Bible of Smith Shaw which has listed under "Deaths": "James Shaw died on the 4th of Dec 1866 aged 80 years". This lead me to belive that at least he was related. Then -- the breakthrough -- I learned from Karen Willis (on Prodigy) about him. The information fit together too well to be coincidence -- so I have entered her information as fact, even though I have not yet proved it.
!This is the info Karen Willis sent me: Benjamin Shaw, father of James Shaw is recorded in Salisbury District, Guilford Co., NC in 1790, 1800 census. He was a farmer and planter. In 1810, it appears John Shaw has taken in Benjamin's family - maybe John is the oldest son. James Shaw also appears here as between 16-26 years old. James was born 1786 in NC. He was a farmer and planter. He married Catherine Elliott, raised an orphan. Her DOB in VA Sep 8, 1793. She died July 17, 1875 and is buried in the Fox family cemetery in Kaufman Co. I have seen her grave. James died 1866 and is buried in Wilson Chapel Cemetery 5 miles south of Kaufman. After James' death Catherine lived with Elizabeth (Betsy) Fox and her husband Dr. Joseph Fox. They are my g-g-g-grandparents. Their children are: Elizabeth b 18 Dec 1810, NC d 17 Oct 1895 (1816 James paid taxes in Maury Co., TN. Rhoda b 21 Dec 1821 Alabama, William A. b 1827 AL, John 1829 AL, Smith between 120-1830 AL, Fox birth date unknown, Robert B. b 19 Jul 1833 Perry Co., AL. Elizabeth probably married Joseph Fox in Perry Co. for this is where their paths crossed. By June 1839 Shaws were in Aberdeen, Monroe Co., MS. Here, James purchased abt. 160 acres of land in the SE quarter of section 4, township 13s, range 7e. He received the land patent on Apr 9, 1842.
He sold the land the next day to Robert Cunningham for 1.00 per acre. 2 1/2 mo. earlier James presented a Deed of Gift to his grandchildren (Betsy and Joe Fox' kids) giving them "two mares branded J.S., one small colt and one bay colt" etc. The grandchildren ranged from 1-13 years old at the time the deed was given. The Foxes lived in Chickasaw Co., MS. Smith Shaw lived next door to Joseph Fox in the 1840 county census for Chickasaw. The rest of the Shaws (we don't know why) were still in Monroe Co. We believe the rest of the Shaws moved to Chickasaw in 1842 -- they are listed on the 1850 census there. James Shaw Jr. and his family lived next door to James and Catherine. William was a law student that year. Robert was a student. James Jr. was a farmer. While in MS James acquired 20-30 slaves. In June 1851 the Fox family had left Chickasaw Co. Smith Shaw remained there. In that same year James Sr. visited Kaufman Co. TX -- the same place the Foxes were headed for. When in Kaufman he bought 1500 acres of land at 1.00 an acre. Two years later James took his family, except Smith, by wagon train to Kaufman Co. TX. The 500 mile journey took one month. Catherine rode her horse side saddle and attached to her waist, lying in her lap was their bag of gold to establish themselves in the new area. It was a leather pouch measuring about 4" x 8". James followed behind. Catherine, or "old Grandma" as she was called was the supreme ruler - James was completely submissive." The remainder of Karen's message is her descent from James Shaw -- see Karen Elizabeth (Perkins) Willis.
!In Feb, 1993, Richard Long sent me copies of the entries in "The History Of Kaufman County, Texas".
!This information taken from "The History Of Kaufman County Texas" without proof. It was very close to the same information above, but added, "James had acquired a moderate education and took up farming like his father. . . . He professed no religion, but was everywhere known for his strict honesty and integrity. . . . In Mississippi James Shaw became a man of influence and financial prestige. Here he had acquired real estate worth $6300 and slave propery of between twenty and thirty Negroes and mulattos."5 GAV-4.

James S. Shaw Sr. per Norma Jean Carruthers Old (James SHAW/Catherine ELLIOTT FGS #17 and FGS #254 - 5 Aug 1993):

"The NC Land Grants in Tennessee, 1778-1791 show that James Shaw had Grants #353 & 353 of 640 acres each on the northside Cumberland opposite Nashbro and on the fork between Cumberland and Red River. TN Territory was still a part of NC and TN did not become a state until 1796. James and Catherine Elliott SHAW moved to TN where their 2nd child, Julia, was born in 1814...James Shaw and his children and grandchildren all came to Kaufman Co., TX sometime in 1853-54 via wagons. James Shaw had bought 1,500 acres of land in Kaufman Co. and the hill between Kemp and Mabank on highway 175 is called Shaw Hill after the Shaw family."7

DR. JOSEPH FOX
Born March 22, 1800 - Died Oct. 17, 1872

Joseph Fox was born in London England, was orphaned about eleven years of age and lived with an aunt, Elizabeth Deeth. He ran away and sailed on a ship for 3 years, crossing the Atlantic several times. he rode the mast when the ship was rolling from side to side, and helped the ship's doctor and began to learn to be a doctor. He was shipwrecked on the Carolina coast, drifted to Alabama, Mississippi, then to Texas in 1851. He settled in Kaufman County.

Marion Fox of Kaufman TX recalls that his grandfather Joseph Fox came from Okalona Miss and Julia Anne Fox Spikes, daughter of Joseph, often spoke of living at Aberdeen Miss.

Joseph Fox began the practice of medicine among the Indians as it is told. After he moved to Kaufman County, he had a wide practice among the early settlers. Sometimes he would be gone from home as long as 3 weeks, people calling him from one home to another, often getting as far away as Henderson. He raised yellow horses and always rode one in his practice. he carried his pills in the saddle bags.

He had married Elizabeth (Betsy) Shaw in Mississippi and they reared a large family of 7 boys and 5 girls. Two girls died young. Sarah K was the first person buried in the Fox Cemetery at Rand. He set aside land for this purpose. A historical marker was placed there in May 1968.

He built his home about 1.5 miles east of Prospect (Now Rand), 9 miles east of Kaufman. The house was two log houses connected with a plank room, with a long porch across the front. He was a small man, blue eyes and fair hair. Dr Fox bought 2 sections of land from P H Pearson for $1.00 per acre. There were no fences except bois d'arc hedge and some rail fences.

There were no banks, railroads, telephones or telegraphs, radios, televisions, roads or bridges. They sent by wagon train for groceries from Shreveport LA. They made their own cloth, thread, and clothes. Small game was plentiful and they raised their own grain.

In Nov of 1977, the Marion Fox Farm was accepted in the TX Family Land Heritage Program for a century of more of continuous ownership and operation as a family agricultural enterprise. Agriculture Commissioner Reagan V Brown presented a certificate of honor to Mrs Pauline Fox Nichols. Co-owners include Mrs Lucille Fox Shiels, Stephenville and Robert marion Shiels, Ft Worth.

This is part of the Joseph Fox Farm founded in 1851.

     Smith Shaw Info from copies of Family Bibles in possession of Fanny Lou (Shaw) Shelton and Salina (Smith) Pearce. See notes in Research Data Filer sshaw.doc.

Info received from William D. McCain (letter dated 25 September 1990): Smith Shaw was in the cencus (sic) of 1840 of Chickasaw County under the description of "1 male over 20 and under 30." He was in the censuses of Chickasaw County in 1850, 1860, and 1870. I will attach his entry for 1870.

Census of 1870, Chickasaw County, Miss., Okolona, Miss., p. 56:
Shaw, Smith, 50, male, white, farmer, $2640.00, $1750.00, born in Tenn.
Shaw, Emily, 43, female, white, born in Ala.
Shaw, Robert, 15, m, w, attends school, Miss.
Shaw, Richard, 13, m, w, attends school, Miss.
Shaw, Kate, 11, f, w, attends school, Miss.
Shaw, Smith, 3, m, w, Miss.
Shaw, Anna, 1, f, w, Miss.

During trip to Van Vleet, MS in Oct, 1992, obtained copy of family Biblepages (Bible in possession of Shaw Bishop family--copies made by Kelli Carter). Written on front page: "Mr. Smith Shaw's Bible He was borned in 1816 He had two sons killed in war of 1863-64 I don't know how old this Bible is I am there (sic) youngest daughter & the only one living Mrs R L Bishop Houston Miss Nov 1952"

There was a family legend that he was accused of murder (of a carpetbagger or something similar). I have spent years researching this story and will add notes as I turn up info:

The "History Of Chickasaw County" says the murder of General Tucker is the only unsolved murder in Chickaswa County. He was shot in his Okolona living room through an open window.

In an interview, Shaw Bishop tols me that as a small boy, he was in bed but not asleep when his brother came in looking for "an old sheet or something to wrap up an old man named Stafford who had died in his cabin". Shaw said he heard his mother yell, "Just leave that old man lie -- he's the son of a bitch that set your grandpa up". Shaw said that is the only timne in his life he ever heard his mother cuss.

The (standard reference) book, "Generals In Gray" says William F. Tucker was murdered by "a man named Shaw" and gives the source as a granddaughter living in Okolona. Larry tried to find the source but she has moved away.

Larry Carter and I searched the court records at Ponotoc and found the Court Minutes, but the case file was missing; I plan to go back and sarch further. We also searched around in the attic of the Ponotoc Courthouse, and the jury room of the Okolona Courthouse -- to no avail. I have copies of what I could find. It appears the charge was against Smith Shaw and his son, Richard Shaw. Richard was tried and found not guilty. A few weeks later, charges were dropped against Smith.

July, 2000 -- Interviewed Louise Witt who said that when she was a teenaged girl, an old Civil War veteran, named Gordon but called "Old Soldier" told her about Smith SHAW being accused of murder. He said a man named Staffard died just before he was to testify, and confessed that he had done it himself. She said this all took place near Wesley Chapel, "where there were quite a few cabins at that time". Her folks got upset that he had told her, and he later apologized to her for telling her -- it was to remain a secret.5

Smith Shaw per Norma Jean Carruthers Old (Smith SHAW/Emmalee (Emily) DAVIS FGS 5 Aug 1993: "When James Shaw Sr. and the rest of Smith's brothers and sisters moved to Texas in the 1850s to Kaufman Co., Smith and his family remained in Mississippi where he lived until his death on 4 May 1898 and is buried in the Asbury Cemetery near Van Vleet, Chickasaw Co., MS along with his wife Emmalee (Emily) who was born 25 Nov. 1826 in Alabama and died 5 June 1906...The 1840 Tax Roll of Chickasaw Co., MS shows Smith Shaw with 2 slaves...The Land Roll of 1848 Chickasaw County Records shows Smith and his father listed..." 1860 census shows Shaw Smith with 800 acres.6,1,7

George Turner Shaw Here is a transcription of a letter George SHAW wrote between those events:

Camp near Martinsberg, Va.
Sept. the 24th, 1862

Dear Father:

I am happy to say to you all that I am still alive. I have fought a great many battles since I wrote to you before but I will not try to give any of the details this time as I am in a great hurry. We are under orders to march now and I do not think that I will soon get well.

Pa, I can not say to you that I am well, for I have been sick for the last two or three days with the fever, but I am glad to say that I am better and think I will soon get well. Pa, I received your letter of the 14th of August about a week ago. It was handed to me on the battlefield and I do not know when I ever felt so bad in my life before. You have had such bad luck this year with your family, and Oh, to hear of my dear little brother being dead. I wanted to see them so very bad but I hope there is a day coming when we shall all meet in Heaven, where there is no parting and I hope and pray you will have better health from this. Pa, you must not think hard of me for not writing to you before now for I never had time. We have been marching all time. I know you wanted to hear from me very bad, but it was impossible. You can tell Ma that her brave brother has fallen, that is Uncle Lin Davis. He was commanding the company that day and his company say that he was wounded very badly and we had to retreat and he was left on the field. He has made a good soldier and has been all the fights and fought bravely for his country, but he had to fall. I know that his connections will hate very much about him being left on the field, but it could not be helped. All the field officers from our regiment were wounded and killed, two of them left on the field, Col. Beetle and Major Evans. We could not get them. Col. Liddle was badly wounded. We had three killed out of our company and 8 or 9 wounded. Sam Wilson was wounded 3 times, but he was hurt bad. Pa, I saw John Maldon the day I got your last letter and told him to write to you for me, and he said he would. I told him to write for clothes, but you need not send them until you hear we are in camps, unless all the others send them. Pa, I am sorry that you have to leave home, but I can not get off and I don't know what Ma will do by herself, but I hope the just God will provide for us. Tell old Uncle John and the rest of the Negros that they must pray for me.

Write soon to your son,
G. W. SHAW on 24 September 1862.7
