Shaw, Samuel P
Shaw, Samuel P., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in New Jersey, Nov. 6, 1798, but was taken to Ohio when a child, his parents settling in Hamilton County. He was licensed to preach when about twenty-two years old, and in 1825 was received on trial into the Ohio Conference, afterwards becoming a member of the North Ohio Conference. For several years he was a missionary among the Wyandots at Upper Sandusky, and also served as presiding elder on several districts. He retired from the pastoral work several years before his death, which occurred near Bucyrus, O., Aug. 19, 1875. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1875, p. 104.
