Irving W. Shaw of Rochester, New York
for several years I have been trying to find ANYTHING on my great-great grandfather, Irving W. Shaw. I have recently found more than just his wife's name. According to a very old cut-out of his obituary in 1934, he was born in 1864 and died in 1934 in either South Rochester, NY or in Brooklyn (the cut-out is very old). His wife, Anna Schuster, died 28 June 1923, assumingly at the same locality as well. From the obituary it was said he worked for the Joseph Kurtz Piano Co. Other than his surviving daughter, Margaret (Shaw) Burns, whom is my great-grandmother, he was survived by a brother, Joseph, who lived in Albany. I came across another source, of Margaret's obituary, that mentioned she had two brothers not mentioned as children in her father's obituary, Robert and John Shaw. The same source also mentions another brother of Irving, George. Other than these names, I have found absolutely nothing on them and I would really like to clear this mystery for once. Anybody with information on these Shaws, maybe even ancestry, and possibly some more info on Irving's wife, Anna Schuster, would be greatly appreciated!!
