He died as he had lived, a firm believer
in the Presbyterian faith. Mr. Short is an honorary elder of
the Shortville Presbyterian church and was a great worker for the
cause of Christianity among the members of the church and
community. He was a kind and loving husband and no father
could have thought or loved greater his children than he.
Kindness and gentleness, patience and pity for distress, love that
understood and sweet charity for all, which endeared him in the
hearts of his family and friends.
He has been living at Shortville forty years using his influence for the cause of Christ. Those who now survive to mourn over the deceased are Mrs. James Short, the deceased’s wife, and also five children. The deceased brother had been suffering from a stroke of paralysis for the last three years. Friday, Feb. 16th, 1912, God’s fingers touched him and he fell asleep, just as the sun was going down. His white soul went home to God.
