According to the draft registration he had left New York and made his way to Baltimore, MD. He was unmarried. He must have met Charity Elizabeth Sibley in Baltimore because her family was from Prince George's County, Maryland. Prince Georges County is the county east of Washington, DC and just south of Baltimore, MD.

Charity Elizabeth Sibley was born 2/28/1842 in Vansville, Prince George's County, Maryland. It is along the Old Baltimore Pike (parallel to the new MD Hwy 1) between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. Her parents were Richard James Sibley, Sr. (DOB 7/15/1792 in MD to James and Sarah Selbey; DOD 6/6/1844 in ? ) and Mary Ann Gardner (DOB 9/24/1798 in MD to John Gardner and Cassandra Dowden; DOD 2/11/1869 in ). Charity's father was already dead in the 1850 U.S. Census and she was just 9 yrs old.

Evidently Able E. Shaw died between the 1880 U.S. Census and the 1900 U.S. Census because Charity Elizabeth Sibley Shaw is listed as a widow in the 1900 U.S. Census. I have not been able to find a record of his death. I assume he is buried somewhere in Richmond County, NC.
