" I remember John Shaw as a medium size man, quick with his movements. A strong Democrat - liked to talk politic, liked horses and knew them quite well. He also knew the Bible very well and kinda liked to argue. He said about what he thought; said he never hit a man that didn't go down, cause I don't know how he did after the man got up; he never said. He loved to read the newspaper and read it all. He stayed with us at times, he was very honest man, but also could tell you some tales. His brothers helped clear the timber off Duck Island, some used horse teams and some used ox teams."
