Re: Martha Jane Melton
I know very little about William Edward short and Martha Jane Melton. It is my understanding that Short was killed when some horses bolted in the wagon he was in and ran over a cliff. I think that was about 1903 in Texas. I suppose they moved to Texas because it was economically better than the rest of the depressed South after the War Between the States. I knew my great grandmother, who was their daughter, but she didn't seem to know any more than that. I will keep looking, though.
