Ancestor in Fairfield Cemetery
July 15, 2010 03:02PM
My ancestor, Christopher Shaw, is buried in the "Old Burying ground of the New Hope Baptist Church" there in Fairfield, Bedford County. He died in 1832. I am told there is a fine monument at his grave with his Revolutionary War Record carved on it. Also, that his wife Mary and two sons are buried there with him. I have recently come across information that his father, Thomas Shaw, came with him to Tennessee in or around 1808 and died there. Thomas also fought in the Revolution and I believe was a Colonel. Is there any sign of a gravesite for Thomas? Are there records going back that far?
Also, I would love to have a picture of Christopher's Monument. Is there anyone who has such a picture or who would take one for me. I would be glad to pay for it.
Thanks,
Sally Shaw Bradbury,
Palm Desert, CA
