J. G. Shaw And Sons C 1850 On Into The 1920s - a Memory of Chester.
This photo shows the home and business of John Gill Shaw my great great grandfather. He was born 23 November 1813. He had 12 children some of which continued his ironmonger business into at least the 1920s. His daughter, Martha, married Henry Craven, my great grandfather, of Buckley, Wales, on 26 April 1870. They emigrated to Red Oak, Iowa, USA, in 1874. Sadly, she died in 1880 4 days after giving birth to their 5th child. If anyone would like more info on this family or business they can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
