I read your recent inquiry as well as the one regarding Susan H. Short and Henry Clark of Kent County Delaware
I grew up in Kent County but my ancesters were primarily from Sussex County. I live about an hour aware from the Delaware Archives in Dover, While I was there yesterday I looked in the card catologue regarding your Susan and Henry. They have Susan as being married on jan 7, 1835 with info from a bond vol 14 pg 238,
On Henry Clark they have the marriage as Dec 14, 1854 from newspapers...vol 87A #93.5 and vol 90 pg 23.
Since I have not been tracking the Kent County Shorts I do not know whether I have run into Susan before. There are three boxes of materials from an J.O. Adams who did extensive research in the early 1950's.....His collection of materials include surnames of Cooper, Hearn, Knowles, Marine, Misel, Messick, Rawlings, Short, White and Badley.
Regarding the Uriah Short line.....I have run into that name frequently. There is a book in the archives by James Curtis Short written in 1984 and revised in 1993 "Early Short Families in Sussex County Delaware" It is 100+ pages of charts and cross references. It might be a good place to start. I would not rely on it completely as my GG grandfather and mother are listed (names and dates are exact) but if I am to believe the family Bible i have, the line info in the book is not correct. Plus I have other confirming info on them.
I am stuck on Obediah Short born in 1804 (not the 1798 Obediah) The bible lists his parents as Edward and Elenor.....(not Elizabeth).
I have a copy of the marriage bond for Obed and his first wife and marriage info on this second. At some point I will make the break through or disprove the Bible. I have been researching for less than a year sporadically.
If you go on line to the Delaware Archives site you can order copies of items. I have done this at times...It costs me the same to look up items and get copies as if I let them gather and copy, except for the $6 postage....and with the cost of gas....I have a couple probated wills yet to go through.
Hopefully this info is of some help
