Mabel SHIPMAN Shaw (1875 - 1972)

Mabel Rose Shipman was born Jan. 14, 1875, in Nelson, Tioga Co., PA; d. Apr. 22, 1972. Married Jul. 12, 1899 to Llewellyn B. Shaw, b. June, 1872, in PA; d. Apr 5, 1948. Llewellyn's parents were Horace Benton Shaw, b. 1838 in PA, died 1914, and Martha E. Howe, born 1845 in PA, d. 1899 in Tioga Co., PA.

Mabel was the elder of 2 children of Mary Lois Campbell, b. 1851 in Nelson, Tioga Co., PA, d. 1927 in Mansfield, Tioga Co., PA; and George Hackstaff Shipman, born 1839 in Hamilton, ON, Canada, died 1922 in Mansfield.

Mabel was an active genealogist, and collected a lot of data on our Campbells. She was a Presbyterian. Also "State Superintendent of Scientific Temperance Instruction in Public Schools and Colleges", and active in: the state Federation of Women's Clubs; DAR; the Guild for the Poor; the Nurse Association; and politics. She sometimes wrote her letters in rhyme. They hosted the 1923 Cousins Dinner on Sep. 26, and lived at 56 Sherwood St., Mansfield.

Mabel wrote poems read at the Campbell Reunions and words for "The Campbell Reunion Song", which was sung to the Civil War tune Marching Through Georgia (these days that tune may not be popular with some of our family members born in the South). She was secretary-treasurer of the Campbell Reunions of 1917, 1918, 1939, 1940, 1941 & 1942.

Llewellyn worked in a furniture store and went on to own and operate one of Mansfield's most prominent funeral homes, Shaw & Robena. (In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the combination of managing a furniture store and being a mortician often went together. Perhaps because it was a small step for a furniture store to add caskets to it's product lines. And if you're selling caskets, providing funeral services seems like a reasonable next step. Oliver B. "Ben" Blanchard and "Parks & Congdon" are other examples.)

Llewellyn and Mable Shipman Shaw had no children, but adopted his nephew:

  1. Wilford Walter Shaw, b. Apr. 15, 1904 in PA, m. Genevieve Cox.
