Mark and Wash Short, Texas
I know that Wash was the father of Henry and Haley Short who were born in Indian Territory Oklahoma in the 1880's. On the 1890 Oklahoma Territorial Census, I found Washington Short (age 42 and born in Missouri) with a Sarah Short (age 30 and born in Texas), Nannie Short (age 13 and born in Texas), Henry Short (age 6 and born in Indian Territory) and Haley Short (age 3 and born in Indian Territory). On the 1880 census for Montague County, TX census I found a Sarah Short and Nannie Short living in a boarding house. Sarah stated she was married and was working as a cook.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
