    3. Hi Carolyn, finally found a text copy of the letter written in 1905 . Here, for interest is the text of the letter: "W L Shortridge Westfield Terrace Flimby Cumberland 7-3-1905 Dear Mr Shortridge I was very pleased to recieve a letter from you, and thank you for sending me your congratulations. You would be surprised to see the name of Shortridge in print as I have never seen it in print before outside our own family.  I do not know of any people in Cumberland of the name of Shortridge who are not related.  I was with a trip into Scotland about two years since and I visited a Wm Shortridge who owned a large factory in Dumfries. He is also a captian in the army, and during the South African War he met a cousin of mine called Willaim Shortridge, who was born in India.  They got to know each other by recieving their wrong letters.  Curiously Mr Shortridge's father for Dumfries also belonged to Cumberland.  My father says that my grandfather had a brother who went down into the central part of England, so possibly you and my father are cousins. The Shortridge family formerly lived in East Cumberland but now we live on the west coast which is about thirty miles crom Carlisle, the capital.  I would like to hear further from you, and perhaps we will find whaty relation you are to us, as I think all the Shortridges are near related.  My father is going to write to you, so I am sending his address.  Hoping you are enjoying good health, as it leaves me at present, I am, Yours faithfully, William Shortridge. " It would be nice if I could find the link between the Shortridges in South Scotland/North West England and if some of those are the ones that migrated to the USA' Regards Alex (PS the "large factory" mentioned in the letter still exists in Dumfries and was started by Thomas Shortridge my great-great uncle on my mother's side) ________________________________ From: Bill and Carolyn Denison <abcdenison@yahoo.com> To: shortridge@rootsweb.com Sent: Thu, February 25, 2010 2:16:51 AM Subject: Re: [SHORTRIDGE] Good Morning Alex, I hadn't hard of Shortridges book nor of the letter.

The Dodgson Manuscript www.rootsweb.com~rutledge/DodgsonManuscript.htm as it mentions John Shortridge and Mary Lancaster, his father Robert and grandfather Joseph Shortriggs.  This is the same Joseph Shortriggs who is mentioned in Mervyn Aird-Jolly's book about the Shortridges.  I have a e-copy of the Shortridges book - let me know if you haven't seen it and would like to, and if you'd like a copy of William Lancaster Shortridges letter.  Certainly the Shortridges (Shortriggs) are  Scottish stock I believe but the Borders between Scotland and England were very "fluid" that long ago.... There are references to the Shortrig family in McDowall's History of Dumfries as early as 1506 and in 1619 an Adam Shortrig was purchasing land originally belonging to the Knights Templars before the Reformation abolished the Orders of Religious Knights.      Annandale and the Western Borders regions had more influence on the population spreading to Dumfries than areas from the North of Dumfries, so its very likely that the Shortridges have descended from that Border region.

    3. Does anyone on the list have any new information about Polly Shortridge 1813, daughter of Rebecca Brown and Robert Shortridge in the Grundy area? She married Edmond Murphy est 1803, son of Gabriel Murphy Jr. & Clarey Herndon. It appears that Polly was one of the first women to have a land grant in her name. Would love to find more info, or even see a photo! An internet cousin found a copy of a photo of Edmond, who died many years before Polly. There must be some of Polly in someone's old family photo album in the Grundy area. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jim Cook" <james.cook4@worldnet.att.net> To: <shortridge@rootsweb.com>; "Bill and Carolyn Denison" <abcdenison@yahoo.com> Sent: Monday, February 22, 2010 10:03 PM Subject: Re: [SHORTRIDGE] Good Morning > Carolyn, > > Yes, that is the Shortridge Family we are researching.
