Shaw, John B

Shaw, John B., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Rutland, Vt., May 23, 1798. He graduated at Midilebury College, Vt., studied theology with Rev. Charles Walker, and was licensed by the Rutland Congregational Association. In 1824 he was ordained by Troy Presbytery, and installed pastor of the Congregational Church at South Hartford, Washington Co., N.Y., and subsequently preached as follows: North Granville, Washington Co., N.Y.; Bethel; Utica, N.Y., Congregational Church, Romeo, Mich.; Norwalk, Conn.; a second time at South Hartford, N.Y.; Presbyterian Church, Fort Ann, N.Y., as a missionary; Congregational Church, Fairhaven, N.Y.; the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Buskirk's Bridge, N.Y.; and the Presbyterian Church at Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., N.Y. He died May 8, 1865. Mr. Shaw was a man of unusual Christian devotedness. "His highly evangelical mode of expressing truth, his eminently successful pastoral qualifications, and his Christian gentleness of spirit made him an exceedingly useful man in his day." See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1866, p. 224. (J.L.S.)
