RE: Short Headstones
Are they the small flat stones? I know most cemeteries rather those than the up right ones as its easier to maintain the grounds. Have you heard of stone huggers before? They repair the old stones. Bonnie :)

RE: Henry Short (I)'s Children
Laurie, thanks for your response. Since I posted my request, I managed to make several new discoveries concerning my 11 x great grandfather, Henry Moses Short I. Henry and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Ashley had a daughter Elizabeth Short 1618-1656 who married John Brabrook (1614-1662.
They had a daughter, Rebecca Draper Brabrook ((1652-1721. Rebecca wed Thomas Dutton Sr. (1648-????. They had a son, Thomas Duttton Jr. (1681-1759. This branch ultimately lead uphe tree to my great grandfather William Tyrrell, the father of my grandmother Reba Burns.

Going back the opposite direction, Henry Moses I was the son of William Shorte Sr. (1500-1541 and Elizabeth Bredham (1505-1541. William short Sr, was the son of Robert Shorte (1470 - 1520). His mother's name is unknown. For now the trail ends.
As you can see, there was the typical dropping of the 'e' from the surname. I have found this to be quite common and there were frequent changes to the spelling of surnames during the 15th, 16th, 17th & 18th centuries.

RE: Searches:

Thanks for responding. I had forgotten that I had written to you. One thing you did not address was whether or not I might use the photo you took in my family tree. I will, of course, give you proper credit in the caption.

Memorial# 36868436 Henry Short. Hi Laurie Henry was my 10 Great Grandfather, May I Please use your photo on my family tree (ancestry). I will credit for the Photo as well as Findagrave and the creator of the Memorial. I also have a question (but more than likely know the answer) is there a stone still in existence for him? I know sometimes in the past when stones have become so bad they take them down and store them was just wondering. Thanks for your help Bonnie :)

RE: Henry and Anthony Short
Thanks for sharing this information. I found a Henry Short born 1651 with father Henry born 1580? at Find A Grave Memorial# 80718393 This doesn't make sense to me given the information that you have about Henry II and his brother Anthony. What do you think?

Henry and Anthony Short
I read your messages with great interest as William Short 1541-1602 is my ancestor. I think his son Henry is the brother of my ancestor Anthony Short who had a daughter Elizabeth Find A Grave Memorial# 36812733 that married John Brabrook. Henry's daughter Elizabeth married Nicholas Holt. In New England Marriages prior to 1700 one of the citations shows John Brabrook who married Elizabeth Short saying that his Uncle was Henry Short. Hope this might be helpful information.

Hi Laurie,

Thank you for taking a photo of the memorial left to the first settlers of Newbury, including my 10th great grandfather Henry Short. May I have your permission to use the photo in my family tree?

May I also ask a couple of questions:

* How certain are you of daughter Elizabeth's birth year? (She is my 9th great grandmother.)

* I have not been able to determine Elizabeth's last name (Henry's 1st wife and Elizabeth's mother). Do you have any ideas where I might search?
