It appears from the location of Robert Shaw that Henry Dykes was in North Carolina or Tennessee in 1793 and Ansel George was in Virginia. Ansel George was probably born between 1730-1750.
Robert Shaw was born in 1754 in Bedford or Halifax Co., Va. then his parents moved their family to Orange Co., N.C. Robert purchased land in Guilford Co., N.C. where he met and married, Elizabeth Hamilton, in 1779.He was a soldier in the N.C. Militia during the Rev. War and moved to his NC (Tenn) Military Land Grant where he died in Sumner Co., Tenn. in 1830.
The location of one or all of these men would be greatly appreciated. Evelyn
