Shorten Family Genealogy Forum
The Edna Shorten in my father's family (his aunt) never married and was actually born a Shorten. Her father was Francis W Shorten of Ft Scott,KS.
I talked with my dad and he thinks he remembers a cousin to his father (John Richard Shorten) who was a Roy Shorten. Dad said he thinks that Roy lived close to Pleasant Hill,MO and was a railroader. Dad also thinks that Roy had a son who they called Roy JR who was a contractor in the KC area... Dad did not recall who Roy Sr's father was... I hope this helps!!
