the vestry meetings, Parish of Clontibret, can also be found in the Tithe
records for Cashel in 1830 with his son-in-law James Montgomery.
Perhaps this is the James Short found in the British

The distance between Cashel and Castleblaney is 11.6 km, circumstantial evidence to place Joseph within the Cashel Short/Shortt family.
Joseph and Isabella Shortt emigrated to Markham Township, York County, Ontario, Canada, about 1837/8. The chart below outlines their children. The third and fourth generations now live across Canada and in the USA.
