Looking For information on Daniel Shaw, Wales MA


I am researching my Grandmother (Sarah Maude(Shaw)Cooley)father's Shaw line. My great grandfather was William Alvin Shaw. Born 1867? He married Ida Maude Brown on 7/6/1889 and he died 11/28/1915 in an industrial accident. He was about 48 or 49 when he died.
I now know that William's parents were Gardner B. Shaw b. abt. 1830 I believe in Wales Massachusetts. I found an 1850 US Census that listed Daniel Shaw 49, Roxey Shaw 44 Gardner 20, Sara 18. Also a an 1868 census showing Willie A. 12, Gardner B 38 , Amanda, 45? (not clear) Albert 9. On the LDS website I found a posting that shows Daniel as born in 1803 and marring Roxy Green in 1825. I am not sure what is correct. The 1850 Census shows that he was born around 1801.
Williams father was Gardner B. Shaw.
I have a picture of Gardner Shaw from 1917 he is abt. 89. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
