March 1, 1900
Death of Mr. Isaac Shaw died at his home, Weston, on Monday morning last, after a prolonged illness.
Mr. Shaw was a son of the late Sydney Shaw, Esq., and was one of the pioneers in the fruit growing and nursery businesses in this valley. In the days of the free school law, he was brought into considerable prominence. He then resided in Waterville. Acting as Secretary to Trustees, he was compelled to defend a case which was carried t the decision of which, in favor of the trustees, did much to settle the disputes which attended the inception of free schools.
Mr. Shaw afterwards removed to Berwick, and later to Weston, where he has resided for the past twelve years. He has always been prominent in church work, an earnest and faithful member of the Baptist Church of which he has been for twenty years a deacon. Two of his sons are ministers of that church, the Rev. M. B. Shaw, formerly a missionary in India, now in charge of a church in California, and Rev. A. A. Shaw pastor of the Windsor Church. Of his other sons, Carl is government physician at St. Kitts, West Indies, Harlan P. is head teacher at the Normal Hall, Bridgewater, Mass., and Fred M. is engaged in teaching Denver. One daughter, Mrs. S. V. Sanford, also survives him as also an adopted daughter Miss Flora McL Shaw now in California.
The funeral of Mr. Shaw takes place today.
