Hi. I'm wondering if someone can help me. I'm looking for any additional information on the family of my ancestor, Jane Shaw of North Carolina (and Texas), whose family roots lie in Scotland. Below is a family tree that I found on Ancestry.com (I can't vouch for its authenticity). Its the most information that I have seen to date on this family. It begins with Jane's son, William Tucker Messer. I hope someone can help fill in the gaps for this family.

Dushee Shaw B 1720 Scotland D 1765 Cumberland, NC Note: Came from Scotland in 1739 to land overlooking the Cape Fear river. Spouse: Rachel Father: Dushee Shaw

This is all that I can find on the family, that appears to be at least half accurate. I hope someone can support or refute this information, or provide any additional information on the Shaw family.
