Shaw, Levi, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born at Frankfort, Me., Sept. 4, 1822. He received regenerating grace Nov. 17, 1842, and soon after united with the Church. He obtained license as a local preacher in 1846, and in 1851 was received on trial in the East Maine Conference. He took, because of ill health, a superannuated relation in 1860, and held it until his death, at Newburyport, Mass. Aug. 17, 1867. After he had become superannuated, he still continued to labor for shorter or longer periods upon different charges, and also served as a delegate of the Christian Commission. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1868, p. 142.
