Mary Boone Beard was born in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1844, the daughter of John Beard and Sarah Emmons. "Boone" was her middle name and may have been chosen to honor the famous Daniel Boone. She married James Robert (JR) Shaw in Olmsted Falls, Ohio, on March 25, 1868. In October of 1884, the family filed for a homestead on Plum Creek, near North Platte, Nebraska, where they built a sod house on the prairie. They later built a home in North Platte and Mary and JR lived the rest of their lives in Nebraska. They are interred at Fort McPherson because of JR's service in the Civil War.

Their children were:
Mary Ann, b. 23 Dec 1868
Sarah Elizabeth, b. 22 Nov 1870
Martha Isabel, b. 22 Nov 1872
