I realize this convo happened a long time ago but I can help a little. John Wesley's son John Connor Short married Ida Grace Miller and they had several children, including my grandfather, Kenneth Howard Short. They are buried at Mount Pleasant Cem outside Lincoln, MO. If anyone has had any luck finding out what happened to John Wesley, I'd appreciate hearing about it. Family rumor is that he was murdered but I cannot verify anything - no death record, no grave, no nothing.
