|Birth: ||Aug. 12, 1885|

Mabel E. Harmer Shorten (possibly Shorton) was the wife of Benjamin Shorten, and the mother of George, Ron, Earl Ezra, and Harry Shorten. To learn more about the family, see the FindAGrave site for her son, Earl Ezra Shorten on this page. He is interred in Saint David's Protestant Episcopal Cemetery in Manyunk.
It is of note that the 1920 census lists her son Harry as age 6 making him born her death year of 1914. Connected or not, her cause of death on the accompanying death certificate was septicemia from a brain abcess, for which she had been treated 5 months.
Her death certificate has Mabel's parents' info a tad off: it misspells her mother's maiden name and erroneously makes her married surname that of her father, who was a Harmer.
