In Response To: Albert T Shaw MD (Jo Porter)

I found some information for you including Albert Thompson Shaw's obituary, marriage to Mary Irish in Shelby County, Indiana, 1870 and 1880 censuses and Mary (Irish) Shaw's death on January 5, 1880 in Stewartsville, DeKalb County, Missouri. Hope it helps.

Obituary -- Dr. Albert T. Shaw

On Sabbath. January 29th, at 8 p.m. Dr. Albert T. Shaw, died in the fifty-sixth year of his age, at his residence in Clarinda, of typhoid pneumonia. The doctor was born near Portland, Maine, where he received an education, and afterward he graduated from Bowdoin Medical College with honors. After this he came west and settled in Iowa, and before the war was for some time surgeon of the Iowa penitentiary at Ft. Madison, a place he filled with honor and credit. On the 22d of July, 1863 he was mustered into the United service as surgeon of the Sixth Iowa Cavalry. This place he filled until the war closed, with the exception that during part of the time he acted as division surgeon under detail. At the close of the war he settled in Memphis, Tennessee, and there went into the practice of medicine. During his residence there he filled some civil offices. When he left Memphis he settled in Arkansas, and remained there sometime, taking an active part in the politics of the state, and practiced his profession, which he was much devoted to. A few years ago he moved from Arkansas to Stewartsville, Mo., and lived there a few years, and from there he came to Clarinda in February, 1881, and went into the practice of his profession. He remained here until August the same year, and then went to Osceola and there practiced medicine until in October, when he returned to this place and was married to Mrs. Dorsey. A short time ago he was appointed health officer for Nodaway township, and no doubt in that service was contracted the fatal disease that ended his life. He was a man of indomitable perseverance, and what he done he done with a will, and there is no doubt but he over exerted himself in his duties, and thus the fever. On Monday last the funeral service was conducted by Rev. Cozier, at his late residence and then the remains were taken to the cemetery followed by many sorrowing friends, and now all sympathize and mourn with the bereaved wife who is left to mourn his loss.
