James Short Fri Jun 20 09:37:50 1997
I am seeking information on the William T. (Thomas?) Short family which relocated from Monroe County, Georgia, to Madison County, Tennessee, between 1830 and 1840. William T. Short died after 1852. His wife, Parthana Harding Short, died between 1840 and 1850. Both are presumed to be buried somewhere in Madison County. Their children were Howell, Thomas H., Paulina A., Phoebe R., William E., Labon and John H. I believe that my gg grandfather, John Hudson Short, born 2/21/1837 in Monroe County, Georgia is the John H. Short Listed above. I think that he went to live with relatives in Talledega County, Alabama, after his father died. Relatives recall a visit by John's brother Ed (William E. ?) around 1910. The relationship between my gg grandfather and his parents and family is the thinnest link in my genealogical line. Any assistance/information on the William T. Short family/descendents would be greatly appreciated.
