Shows Family Genealogy Forum
There is no documentation for the surname of Robertson for John Shows wife. Norvel Robertson, the preacher and his son just happened to be in the same area of MS as the Shows. He was not in GA with them. Many people named children for preachers, doctors, or midwives in the area. The Robertson name is not in the children of Mary and John, but in their grandchildren.
There is more and more dcoumentation appearing that John did not come from Germany, but was born in the United States. There are no immigration listings for Shows/ Schaus in the 1770, but there is in the 1730's. There are Shows/Schaus in PA, NC, and GA in records prior to 1760.
