I knew Gillespie Shaw. His parents are Clyde and Estelle Shaw but they not the Clyde and Estelle Shaw buried in Crowder Cemetery. His parents are Clyde Edwin Shaw and Estelle Walton Shaw, buried in Pilgrim`s Rest Cemetery in Yalobusha Co., MS. He needs a note or a link to his parents to avoid confusion with the Clyde and Estelle buried with with him in Crowder Cemetery. Gillespie was born too late in 1930 to be on the census, and it seems his family was missed on the 1940 census..
