Short Family Bible

Short Family Bible

Contributed by Jan Barnes

"This Bible is owned by Margaret Short Jones who lives in Portland, Tennessee. (She passed away in April 1999). Margaret wrote this: I'm sure a lot of these names are misspelled but this is exactly the way Grandma Jennetty recorded them in her Bible. She also recorded that Grandpa Mulloy died August 29, 1901. Possibly Grandpa Short's mother was a Mulloy before her marriage because his name is Issac "M" Short.

Martha Lamberths death was recorded also. This is Grandma Short's sister."

(Notes from Jan Barnes "Cornelius (who married Della Ray) was born on July 16, 1897, the day before his father died. In the Bible records, it only lists Francis Short's b-date and marriage date to Cornelius. I added her death date, his birth and death date. Bible records show spelling Francis, but cemetary shows Frances.)

(Notes from Jan Barnes: "I added Merica's death date, also added Davis' birth and death date. Martin Luther was listed only as Luther in the Bible records. I added his birth and death date.)
