In Reply to: william shorten family by DONNA SAMPSON SHORTEN of 121

I have some information about the Shortens from Bourbon Co, KS. (Ft Scott,KS)

My father, Richard Lee Shorten is the only child of John Richard Shorten (born 1900, died in 1955) of Bourbon Co,KS. My great grandfather is Frank Shorten although I do not have much information about him at this time. He was also born in Bourbon Co, KS.
He died when my father was young so my father never really knew his grandfather nor grandmother who was also deceased.

My grandfather, John Richard Shorten had 2 brothers and 2 sisters..

Clarence E Shorten--Bourbon Co,KS
Thomas 'ED' Shorten (worked for railroad in Texas)
Ida Shorten -married Jake Harber/Colorado
Edna Shorten (never married)-Bourbon Co,KS

I have never attempted any genealogy search before and last week when my parents were visiting I coincidentially asked my dad about the Shortens in hopes of learning more about our family....Hope this helps! I would love to get more information!!
