Rachel Horne Shaw

Birth: Nov. 13, 1808
Liberty County
Georgia, USA
Death: Nov. 8, 1877
Berrien County
Georgia, USA

Daughter of Richard Horne & Mary Foxworth. Wife of Jeremiah Shaw Jr. (20 Mar 1800 - 7 Apr 1883).

Tombstone reads: "Rachel Horne Shaw, [daughter of] Richard & Mary [wife of] Jeremiah Jr. beloved [mother of] 16 children - Nov 13 1808 - Nov 8 1877."

"Maternal ancestor of most of the Shaw families of Berrien and Lowndes counties. This editor has mistakenly suggested that she died almost eleven years prior to her husband, Jeremiah. However this error can be attributed to Jeremiah's purported death date of 1888, published in Huxford's Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia. It appears that the date was extracted from the tombstone of Jeremiah, which obscures the legibility of the 1883 date. Upon examination of the court documents, and execution of his will and settlement of his estate, it is clear that Jeremiah's accurate death date is 1883."
