I would be interested in knowing if any of your Shorts migrated to Illinois
during the 1800's , particularly to the Peoria area. My wife's family ,
the Shorts moved to the US from Wales via England, may have come through
Ohio or KY.

> Hello "Site":
> My reason for the "Short" update was to ask for any info/data upon
Charlotte Hall, as to parents, siblings, etc? ( also, noted given names of
"Wilson", and "Joseph", which were not used early by Short lines, so may
have came from "Halls"?)
> Also, to ask for same, help, on Stafford H. Leeds; as per reasoning of
intermarriage into child of William Short (1800 - 1846) and said Charlotte
Hall, and thus not only have for record, but help descendents of said line.
> Mr Leeds: Not according to me, but official document, Clermont Co Ohio,
lists Stafford H. Leeds as being 28 years of age on the 28 May 1849. I have
no idea of how old he really is/was. Not according to me, but official
Clermont Co Ohio census lists Stafford H. Leeds as 32 in 1850. I have no
idea of how old he really is/was. Trying to find accurate/true
birthdate/year/age, from the census, or many other documents/records/etc, is
only slightly better than "by story", or someone elses "info/data", but all
can be used as clues to prove/disprove. Same with much of the other
history/geneology info/data in all of the family tree/histories, wrote, or
to be written. Same with LDS records, all of the websites, and internet.
Same with many a "flysheet" entry in many a family Bible.
