I've traced my Father's ancestry back to Adam Short who was born in Virginia in 1780. I am Robert Short, s-3 in the project. I looked at the Short's of Rockbridge, VA but I have evidence they are from Ireland and didn't arrive in Virginia until after 1787. Most of the other Short families in Virginia have been claimed by somebody in the Short project. Does anybody have any suggestions on a Short family in Virginia that I can look at? Especially a family who could have had a son born in 1787.
