What a wonderful find! I was excited to read Esther Michels inquiry regarding Esther Short's mother. The only information I've come across is on familysearch.org, which states "Algonquin Indian Woman." My wife and I are hunting for more information about her as well. You shared that you have a photo of her? We live in Corvallis, email address aaronshale@comcast.net. Would love to hear from you.
Thanks, Aaron Hale

Trailways to Albany 2000 compiled by Helen M. Hanson writes about the riverboat men who lived in the Albany area. There are several Short family mentioned: Charles M. Short, Jerome E. Short, Lyman Short, Thomas Short and Ira H. Short.

I would like to contact A. Patterson (Short45).

My gg grandfather is the Ira Short of the family of steamboat pilots that she's looking for. I'm also collaborating with two descendants of Amos Short. Both Ira and Amos were in Carroll/Whiteside Counties from 1840-60 and might be brothers.

Looked online but couldn't find anything on "Trailways to Albany 2000". Is this a book or a travel pamphlet? How would I obtain a copy?

To Dennis: Regarding Ora Short Horton. I believe that Ora is the daughter of Alfred Deloss Short and his 2nd wife Lauretta Lumison. Alfred D Short is Amos and Esthers son. I don't have Ora listed with a spouse yet, but will research the Horton name. Ora's 1/2 brother is my Great Grand Father Alfred D Short, II. I hope that this helps. Ps- I have a photo of Ora.-Terie
