I am researching the Short family in Kent County, if all the information I have gotten so far is correct, my 4xgr. granfather would be John Short born about 1810, living in Kent County. I have not been able to find any information about who John Short's parents were or any other information back past him. I have found out there are Shorts in Sussex County as well so, I do not know if there is a connection between the Sussex County Shorts and the Kent County Shorts. Any imformation would be greatly appreciated, you may e-mail me direct at email@example.com.
