Isaac F. Shaw

Though Shaw's journals (as reported on in the Hammer history) clearly identify Shaw as having traveled in the Andrew Scott Company, his name (seen as "I. Shaw" with 2 1/2 adult food rations) is also included in the records for the Daniel Thompson Company of that same year. A possible explanation for this is that he and his party may have switched companies at some point in the journey. Further research is needed to clarify this.
