Biographical Sketches [p. 285]
Priscilla Jane, daughter of Joseph and
Hannah (Dunham) Shaw, was born Aug. 1,
1832. She married Pelham W. Barrows.
Through her parents she was a scion
of the first settlers of this region
and of numerous Old Colony families.
She was always actively interested in
public affairs. When the news of the
surrender of Gen. Lee at Appomattox
reached her she hastened to the Baptist
church, where she rang the bell as a
signal for the general rejoicing. She
was a promoter of the Carver Ladies'
Soldiers Memorial Association, and
served as its President until its object
was achived. She was also one of the
promoters of the Old Home gatherings,
where her extended acquaintances and
democratic manners made her a happy
medium. She was popularly hailed as
Aunt Jane.
