Research Note:
Florence was raised as the daughter of her grandparents John and Ida Shaw. According to family lore, her mother Jenny (Mary Jane) was picking berries and an Uncle on the Shaw side forced himself upon her. I have no proof that Angus Shaw is her father, only the fact that he seemed to disappear and was not talked about in the family.
