I am trying to find out who the parents of my great great great grandfather William "Grancer " Short Jr. were. William was born in 1766 in Burke County, North Carolina. I suspect that his parents may have come from or were born in Surry County, Virginia before they moved to Burke County, North Carolina. William moved to Wise County, Virginia during the early 1800's and was first married to Elizabeth Bolling and then to Mary Polly Birchfield. William is buried at Benjamin Bolling Cemetery in Wise County,Virginia. Any info is appreciated.
