Ohio, USA
Death: May 10, 1913
Stark County
Ohio, USA

Son of John Shorb (17891861) and Anna Davis (17901835).

His mother died a few months before his 11th birthday. He was sent to live with relatives after that. He resided in Stark Co, Ohio most of his life.

His siblings were:
Mary Catherine Shorb Beall (18111866)
Ann Fannie Celestine Shorb Rider (18121896)
John F Shorb (18141894)
Francis Cecelia Shorb (1817 )
Harriet Shorb (1819 )
Ann Eliza Shorb (18201922)
Sarah Shorb (18221922)
Thomas Shorb (1830 )
Margaret Shorb Bonham (18321889)

In 1845, in Ohio, he married Lydia McIntosh.

Their children were:
Charles Franklin Shorb (18481931)
Henry McIntosh Shorb (18491937)
Cyrus Shorb (18521861)
Azariah Ezra Shorb (18531923)
Clara McIntosh Shorb (18561861)
Mary A Shorb (18571861)
Lucinda E Shorb (18591861)
Simon Shorb (1862 - 1904)
Marion Shorb (18641875)

Of their nine children only four grew to adulthood. Between April 1 and April 19, 1861, four of their children (all three daughters and one son) died from fever.

It is said that James and a cousin, John Davis joined the "49ers" in hopes of striking gold in the late 1840s. Lydia stayed with Shorb family members in Illinois during his absence. James returned home without any great riches.
