Hi Tom,

Some time ago a gentlemen posted a message regarding an 80 year old Patrick Shortis that still plays a few musical instruments in a particular pub. I cannot locate the message that he posted to me. As Parish Administrator are you able to locate the orginal message. I would like to write to this Pat Shortis to see if he can shed some light on the family tree.

With Thanks and Kind Regards,

  • My Great Great Grandfather was John Shortis brother of Michael, he married a Joanna Leonard in 1862. His father Patricks parents were James Shortis born 1774 and Johanna Cahill. I do not know when they married.

  • Hi Denise,

    Thank-you for your email. How did you discover this? Do you have any other information? This would make James 18 years old at the time of Patrick's birth?

    I've recently met another descendant of John Shortis, do you know Kathleen Baker?

    Kind Regards,

  • Hi Denise,

    I have Patrick's birth 1792 that states the same parents as you mentioned, but I don't have Patrick's father born in 1774.

    What a small world. I'll email Kathleen.
