Elizabeth Shortreed's parents were John Shortreed (1810-1890) and Margaret Hood (1817-1890). Margaret was the daughter of George Hood (1782-1857) and Elizabeth Scott (ca.1778-1858). Elizabeth and Peter Bathgate had, so far as I know, 10 children: Maggie, Annie (d.1934), Bell, Bessie (b.1865), Nellie (d.1952),William (d.1954), Sarah (d.1908), John J., Hannah, Marion (ca.1878-1958). Elizabeth is my 1C3R as her father, John Shortreed, was the brother of my GG Grandfather, Robert Shortreed. John Shortreed's parents were Thomas Shortreed (ca.1774-1841) and Isabella Armstrong (ca.1774-1870), who emigrated from Roxburghshire, Scotland with their six children to what is now Guelph, Ontario in about 1831. Hope that helps.
