I have a letter written by Richard George Short, greatgrandson of Aaron, dtd Dec 23 1936 that says Aaron came from Wise Co, VA and this information has been repeated by others that I have talked with. I would be willing to exchange any and all information that I have on the Shorts. Please use my address to answer.

Looking for information on Isabel Short ba: 1814 to Aaron Short and Elizabeth Chaffin. Isabel m1: Walter A. Green and had 3 children: Elizabeth born about 1835 death 1911. Winny Green birth about 1838 Daniel Green about 1843 Winny Green ba: 1838 married David Kitchen b: 1835 m. 1854 and had the following chidren: 1. James F. Kitchen 12-22-1856 2. Matilda Kitchen 12-1859
We are not sure the following 3 children are with Winny. In 1870 Matilda and Alexander are living with two of David’s brothers and Liddie J age 3 is living with Isabel Short Green Murphy and Winnie is living in the Holbrook family as a domestic. In 1880 Isabel is living with a grandson, James Short and we lose Liddie J and Winnie. In 1884 Sylvia “Lydia” Jane marries Owen Meadows in Kanawha County, WV.

3. Frank Kitchen (no further data)
4. Alexander Kitchen 4-1866
5. Sylvia Lydia Jane Kitchen 1867 (my gggrandmother)
We know David is married to someone else in 1869.

I am descended from nancy short who married george sparks of lawrence county ky.nancy is supposed to be a daughter of aaron short and elizabeth chaffin but I see you dont have her listed.she was born in or about 4-7-1800 died 1-11 1879 lawrence county ky.
dont know where she was born or where aaron was from though i see you have it as wise county va which makes sense.a lot of my ky kin came from wise county first and before that nc.

From DNA it is believed his father was a GRIGSBEE/GRIGSBY, etc. His mother may have been Milly SHORT. See the discussion under Lineage VIII at:
