Anfin Shaw was born July 6, 1872, to Mr. and Mrs. Ingmor Shaw of Bergen, Norway. He was one of a family of eight children. Mr. Shaw migrated to this country at the age of twenty in the year 1892, coming first to Illinois where he spent three years. From there he moved directly to Emmet county, and has spent the rest of his life in and about this community. He was united in marriage with Anna Sunde on January 2, 1902, and this marriage was blessed with five children, four boys and one girl. Three of these children died in infancy , and the one son, Elmer of Fort Dodge and the daughter, Luella, of Minneapolis, are now surviving. Mr. Shaw has labored in this community for many years as a carpenter together with his brother, Carl. He has been a member of the Estherville Lutheran church for a long time and also very active as a member of the Hauge Lutheran Inner-mission Federation. Mr. Shaw was always very robust in health and seldom ill, but about three years ago he suffered a heart attack and has been intermittently confined to his home until the time of his death which came rather abruptly on September 16th at 10:10 a.m.

Besides his wife and children Mr. Shaw is survived by two grandchildren, Marilyn and Robert Shaw, two sisters and one brother in Norway. Also his brother Carl in Estherville and his brother Ole in New York. Mr. Shaw’s body will be laid to rest in the Estherville Lutheran cemetery awaiting the glorious call of the resurrection morning. May the Lord bless his memory. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, September 23, 1948)
