Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired but keep busy doing volunteer work for the local food bank and my church. My main focus these days is to find everyone that I am genetically related to and the count as of October 2017 is something over 50,000 individuals and spouses. My Nance and Swindle ancestors came from Virginia to North Carolina, then spread far and wide from there. I will transfer a memorial to you if you are more closely related to an individual than I am, regardless of FAG guidelines. Also any photos that I post are yours for the taking--no need to ask.

Mr. Nance,
If you are tracing Ralph Shaw's family line up the chain you will get to John Gardner Shaw FAGM# 55623161 and you will notice that he does not have a link to his parents. According to Lavern's records John Gardner Shaw's parents are Tillman Shaw and Suzanna Shaw and now that we have an approved Memorial for both of them I have attempted to link John Gardner Shaw to his parents and I awaiting Find A Grave approval. However, I forgot to link John Gardner Shaw to his wife Catharine Shaw FAGM# 55623144 and the Find a Grave won't let me make the link because it has not confirmed the parents link yet. However I would bet that you could make the link if you would like. Thank you for all of your help.

Ralph Bascom Shaw
Mr. Nance,
Ralph Bascom Shaw FAGM# 75578760 is the son of Lillian Fey (Jackson) Shaw FAGM# 139882023 and James Gardner Shaw FAGM# 64735400. Laverne (Kimbrel) Shaw (Ralph's wife) is still living and she is my cousin. Lavern has a lot of data on the Shaw family but not as much as she would like to have. I am sure that she would really like to have a copy of the Shaw data that you have because she is really interested in the Shaw family tree so that she can pass it on to her three children. Thank you for all of your help and thank you for all of your work with Find a Grave.

Tilmon Shaw
Mr. Nance,
My cousin Laverne Shaw said that her husband Ralph Shaw's family records indicate that the Find A Grave Memorial 80848928 name should be Tillman Shaw instead of Tilmon Shaw. The birth and death dates and county of burial are exactly the same as the memorial page that you created, as well as all of the biography that you entered. If you agree please correct his name to read Tillman. I have just created a Memorial Page for Suzanna Shaw, wife of Mr. Tillman Shaw and I have linked it to your created Memorial Page. Thank you for all of your work with Find A grave.
