Artie Missie George Short
Birth: Sep. 1, 1897
Tarrant County
Texas, USA
Death: Feb. 14, 1925
Tarrant County
Texas, USA

Artie was the youngest daughter of the eight children of Jesse Madison George and Florence Belle Robertson George. She married Zola Oliver Short. She died in her parents' home at the age of 28 of what was listed as tuberculosis. Her death left two small boys - George Olsson Short (born in 1920) and Billy Braswell Short (born in 1922).
After she died, Zola took care of the boys the best he could, leaving them with a caretaker during the day while he worked. One day he came to get his boys and found that Artie's father and mother, along with Artie's older sister Goldie, had "kidnapped" the children and taken them to their home. Getting them back proved difficult and as George later reported, Zola and Mr. George had a terrible argument in which Mr. George told Zola that if he wanted his children back, he would have to marry Goldie. At the time, So, Zola married Goldie, who said she had always loved him and they had two more children, Betty and Bob. They stayed together until Zola died.
