Death: Liber AC, #4, Folio 236, 237 and 238, Probated 1748, Hall of Records, Charles Co., Maryland. 12-3-1748 names Eliz, wife, sons: John, Philip, William, Joseph, Charles, Dau: Eliz: Exe: Eliz: Shaw, if she stands to the will; if not, son John Shaw. Wit: Thomas Hatton, Nathan Brooks, John Sheyin Prob. 1-19-1748 (sic).
16. Administration papers were not found in the NC State Archives so, for the heirs of Joseph Shaw therefore, we must rely upon the will alone. Fantelina Joy Shaw, one of his daughters, was named as her father's Executrix and her given name was the best clue to Joseph's ancestry we were given since she was named for her great-grandmother, Fantelina Joy. Joseph Shaw wrote his will the 27th day of Feb in 1826 with a clear and well defined plan for his estate and the welfare of his children and grandchildren. It was apparent that his wife, Elizabeth, had died as she was not named in his will.

Joseph Shaw apparently was a well educated man and considering his advanced age at the writing of his will in Feb 1826; he was probably well versed in legal matters as well. He and his family kept a low profile and the only appearances his name makes in the County Court records are in the transactions of land. Born the 5th. child to Elizabeth Jenkins and John Shaw on the 9th day of Sep 1742 , Joseph was left fatherless by age 7. His father, John, wrote his will the 03 Dec 1748 and by 19 Jan 1749 he had died leaving sons, John, William, Philip, Joseph and Charles and a daughter, Elizabeth.

WB E, page 277: Will dated 27 Feb 1826; Proven August Term 1832 on oath of J. P. Snead. Will names: Son, Neil H. Shaw; Son Joseph B. Shaw and his son, Joseph John Shaw; Daughter, Catherine H. Horton and her children, Maria B. Hargis, Neil H. Horton and Anthony W. Horton; Maria Kinnion, her husband Paul Kinnion and their son, Benjamin J. Kinnion; Daughter, Druscilla Ann Hargis and her husband, Dennis Hargis; Daughter, Elinor Ann Ray; Daughter, Rebecca E. Shaw; Daughter, Fantitina J. Shaw; Son-in-laws, John Warren and James M. Wheat. Executrix: Fantilana Joye Shaw.[Photocopy of will in my possession]

Given the known surving sons-in-law named in Joseph's will it is assumed Eliza died prior to the will writing since she was not named. From the Wheat genealogy it is learned that Elizabeth King Shaw Wheat died in 1813. Catherine Hamil Shaw Horton's spouse was not named so therefore it can be assumed he had died prior to the will date too.

From the 1810 census it can be surmized that Catherine Horton and her 3 small children were living with her father.

By 1830 when Joseph made the deed of his land over to Benjamin, his grandson; his daughter Rebecca had probably died, since there is no record of a marriage and she wasn't home with her father in 1830 nor was she mentioned in the deed giving Benjamin the homeplace with lifetime rights for Joseph and Fanny.

CHARLOTTE HALL SCHOOL 1774-1976, J. Roy Guyther, M.D.; 1992,p. 23; ...1819 employed the Reverend Neal H. Shaw and the Reverend James J. Bowden to conduct divine services at the institution on Sundays from the first of June until the first of January. It seems this plan did not have the desired effect that the Trustees hoped for. The ministers proselyted for the advantage of their own denominations, which resulted in dissenion and antagonism between students and professors.

Dear Barbara,

I became interested in Robert W. Hargis when I purchased the house he lived in at 412 W. Gregory St. in Pensacola. I was wondering if you care to share any information on him. I found quite a few Hargis's living in this house at the turn of the century. The house has five bedrooms - and looks like each room was fairly independent. The land originally belonged to his wife. I haven't been able to determine exactly when it was built, but it has Hargis family living here in 1892. I understand the original homestead of RBS Hargis was located where the Pensacola News Journal is today. I talked with some "half" sisters of his when I noticed an obituary in the paper and saw their names. They told me his direct descendants are in Lakeland, I believe.

Thanks for your post!

Ann Hill
