I have been researching the Shorter's for years. They settled in Cowley County, Kansas from Clark County, Illinois. Do you know Mabel Harmon? She has also been researching for years.
I seldom get to my e-mail. I am doing this at the library. If you do not hear back from me via e-mail, you can write me at John R. Dulin 110 Mary St., Henderson, Texas 75652

Our Allen County Kansas ancestors are the backbone of who we are and where we came from. Their struggle and tenacity to better their lives continues in us today. Honor each ancestor on these pages of Allen County with stories about them, and let's help each other in our genealogical study of people and the history they made.
