I am searching for information about John Cleves Short who married Mary Ann Gross in Bloomington, Illinois, in 1847. She was the daughter of Richard Gross and Elizabeth Harbert. Did John Cleves Short have siblings who lived in that area? Does anyone know who his mother was? He was born in Hamilton Co., Ohio in either 1817 or 1819 and came to Bloomington area around 1830. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thank you for any information.
