|Bio and Links|
In early 2011 following the death of my mother at age 95, as I was cleaning out drawers and boxes, I came across scads of family genealogy information and photos that had been accumulated by my father and maternal grandparents over the years. Since that time, I have become obsessed with continuing to trace my family's lineage in the hopes of passing the information down to my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.|
When I became stuck trying to find the death location of one of my second great grandfathers, Josephus Morgan, I found it on Find A Grave. I was so impressed with this website and the volunteer who had taken photos of his grave, I decided to become a volunteer and give something back to what I had been given. While I signed up to volunteer earlier in 2012, it is only in June that I have taken the plunge and claimed/fulfilled my first missions. I have been bitten by the bug, and hope to complete many more. My wife Marsha has joined me in helping to find sites and trimming the grass and sweeping the leaves off markers. I will be happy to transfer management of memorials I have created to any relative.

PS Besides Newbury, MA vital records, you should search Andover, MA vital records for Henry (I)'s daughter Elizabeth Short Holt and daughter Dorothy Short Kent. I have used ancestry.com to link to mutual trees and have only added info if vital town records are attached or I can substantiate through my own searches. It appears that Henry (I)'s children were born in Totnes, Dorsett, England.
|Laurie Short Jarvis||RE: Henry Short|
Between ancestry.com mutual family trees, my great grandmother's tree and Newbury vital records I have pieced together the following on the first Short Settlers of Newbury, MA (where I live) Henry Shorte (I) b.1580 England married Elizabeth Ashley, widowed and came to Newbury MA 1635 with his adult children.
Henry (II) b.1601 married Sarah Glover b. 1601 both Henry's died in Newbury. I have two dates 1672 and 1673. No birth dates given to substantiate. Henry (I) also had a son Anthony b.1604 married but there are no records of children.
He also had a daughter Dorothy b.1590 married Richard Kent and a daughter Elizabeth b.1606 married Nicholas Holt. Im not sure if there were other adult children that remained in England or not.
Henry (II) had several children, one was Henry (III) b.1652 married Sarah Whipple of Ipswich, whidowed, and then married Ann Sewall Longfellow. (her uncle was infamous judge Samuel Sewall of the Salem Witch trials and her husband was the nephew of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, poet)
|Laurie Short Jarvis||RE: Henry Short|
Hi, apologires for taking so long to respond. I dont visit this site as often as I should.
I have Henry Short b. England 1580 married to Elizabeth Ashley widowed. Came with his sons and daughters to Newbury MA 1635. (I would say that your ancestral grandmother was named after her mother)
So far I have discovered the following children born in England and arriving in Newbury:
Henry (II) b.1601
Dorothy b. 1590 m. Richard Kent
Elizabeth b.1606 m. Nicholas Holt I have them moving to Andover MA and she died Nov 6 1656 Andover, MA
Thanks for looking for Guy, I guess he was just cremated at Brooklawn. I checked out the website, I had no idea it had a list of everyone buried there. Awesome information, Thanks for your time.

Hi peter, while I don't think those are the Barbour's I am looking for,(I'm looking for Henry Barbour & wife Mary, Charles Barbour & wife Abigail Small) a good friend of mine is married to a Barbour & she might be able to use that information if you happen to get it. Thanks

You're more than welcome to copy or edit the picture as you see fit - consider it yours! :) We were in the area vacationing and I'm a genealogy nut so thought I'd take a crowd out with me to fill some FindaGrave requests. I do have the photo still and will copy it over for Rebecca's request. Take care, Matt
|Sandy||RE: Dolly Whitney|
Yes, you have my permission to use the photo any way you want to, and need not credit me in any way! Sandy (Sadly the stone had bird stuff all over it, and I tried to get it off. Those are the stains that you see on the stone caused by the water that I used. It was not dry when I took the picture.)

Thank you so much for the photo. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated!
