SHAW, Albert Franklin

Elsie, MI

UPDATE - this photograph of Albert Franklin Shaw has been claimed by a relative and is going home!

Acquired at the 2019 January Antique Show at Palm Beach County Fairgrounds.

The photo appears to have been taken between 1900-1910. The studio stamp says "S. Wight, Elsie MICH". immediately finds the person who matches the clues provided.

Albert Franklin SHAW, born 7 Aug 1907 in Ashley Michigan (a town about 10 miles away from Elsie, MI). His WWII Draft Card states his employer is the "Grand Trunk Railroad". His wife is Mildred Henrietta Shaw (nee Jones).

I was able to locate a photograph of a more mature Albert Shaw on Ancestry. I do not possess this photo of Albert and his wife Mildred, but I show it here for comparison. (On the left.)

Albert's parents are William Shaw (1883-1962, son of Albert Hugh Shaw & Euphema Clark) and Carrie Elizabeth Ackels (1890-1985, dau. of Franklin D. Ackels & Emma Jean Stevens).

Albert died 8 May 1973.
