John first married Mary Heller in 1849 in Indiana. She died the next year.[frenchancestors.ged.FTW]
It was said he had stupendous strength, but also had a brilliant mind. Hewas admitted to practice law in the Wells Circuit Court. At one time he owned 500 acres in Wells Co. Indiana.
The 1870 Federal census shows John French was 40 years old and born in (Michigan?) while his wife was 27 and born in Indiana, with daughter Elsie 2 years old born in Iowa. John's occupation was listed as a teamster. There were no other French s listed in Warren Co.
The puzzling thing is Helen A. Lynch has recorded in her records; from which much of this information comes from, that John died in 1897, but the 1880 Federal census lists Elsie as 12 then and Lydia remarried to a Willard Smith in Indianola, Warren Co. Iowa! I am thinking the dates digits may have been transposed and maybe John French died in 1879!

Nora Lorrene Hirsch SHORT; was the third child of five born to Paul Fredrich Hirsch and Hilma Annette Gulbraunson. Nora was born in Marathon Iowa on August 21 1905. By her younger pictures she had dark brown hair, but was completely silver by the mid 1950's. She raised her four childrenin Des Moines. Their last home was at 1101 S.W. Broad St in Des MoinesIowa. Nora was quite the home maker even though she had a bad heart condition most of her life! Nora; (grandma), always kept an immaculate house, and kept busy baking or canning when she wasn't in her garden. In the early 1950 's possibly mid forties Nora's mother, Hilma Hursch because of her advanced age and health moved in with Nora Lawrence and James their youngest son. Nora took care of her mother until her death in October 1960. Towards the end Great grandma Hirsch was a handful! Besides needing medical assistance, she was becoming senile, or today it would be called Altymmers! Although some believe she had selective memory loss!
In the mid 1960's grandpa bought Nora a new automatic washer; now automatic washers were not new at that time but grandma just liked her old wringer type washer. She said it got clothes whiter than the automatic did! After crushing her hands in the wringers and stripping the hide from her arms she retired the old wringer, but never did get rid of it!
Nora and Lawrence, as she used to call him, loved to have the family over for all of the holiday festivities. All of them! Every meal was a
feast, because as the family grew it had to be. Towards the late 1960"s there would be ove r thirty of us at Christmas dinner! Nora would Always work herself to a frazzle preparing food for days! Then when the dinner was all on the table Nora wo uld turn to Lawrence and say
" Daddy would you say the blessing?" Then Lawrence would always start "Good bread, good meat, good God lets eat!" Then Nora after a little smack would say the prayer herself or have one of the others do it. I don't think Nora ever drove a car. If she did it was in her earlier years. I can't ever remember her behind the wheel! After Lawrence died in 1976 . Nora lived by herself for a time with
just her poodle. James and his wife Judy lived just a few blocks away and between them and Don and Barbara they tried to help her out. In 1979 Don and his second wife Maxine moved in to help her out with her failing health! Nora Loraine Hirsch Short died after a long fight with cancer on March 9, 1980 at Des Moines General Hospital.

Willard Lawrence Short; what a character. In his younger days His uncle
called him Willard, but he didn't like it, but his lit tle sister Hazel
nicknamed him "skinny". That name stuck with him throughout his life. He
was about 6' 1" and I never saw him with more than a 29" waist. I don't
think he ever got over 130 lbs. He had curly red hair that he got from
his mother and passed on to Jim and Barbara. Even thought he was a wisp
of a man he had a heart as big as Texas. I never heard him raise his
voice, and only once did I see him get mad, and that was at his neighbor
for reporting him for parking his pickup in front of his home on Broad St.
Lawrence was one of the hardest working men I ever knew, but he never
acted like he was working. He was a truck driver all of his life and
every driver in Iowa knew skinny. He was the fifth of six born to Elsie
McCoon French and Hiram Harmon Short. He was born in Des Moines Iowa on
August 31 1901. In my preteens I would help (grandpa) do odd jobs from
time to time, and he would tell me stories about his early teens. Later I
asked his two sons about the stories and they knew nothing about them. It
was hard to take his stories as gospel because he was such a kidder! He
might have also been trying to teach me lessons about life through his
stories. One story was a young lady accused him of being the father of
her unborn baby! That just happened to be about the time I had my first
girlfriend! A warning!? His daughter Barbara told me stories of Lawrence
and his two brothers racing their cars around the water works, and
getting in minor trouble with the law when they lived on Tonka Ave. What
I do know for sure is there never was a job too hard for him to tackle,
and the fact that he loved his family and life in general. The home they
lived in on Broad St he built on to one room at a time, and it had a 20'
ravine along the side yard that the trolly use to run along. Over a
period of 20 years he filled in the trench one shovel at a time! He told
me stories that were verified by grandma that he used to walk to work
along the trolley with his 22 rifle and a gunny sack. On the way home he
would shoot a rabbit or catch stray chickens for supper. Even at 70 years
old he was a very good shot!

Lawrence, and Nora Loraine Short! He was the second of four children.

I am afraid that is what added to his early death! Don developed Diabeties, and Rhumitoid Arthritus. He had a kidney disease that lead to Diaolisis for the last five years of his life. Don died in Mercy hospital in DM, and left five children 14 grand children and two great great grandchildren. Don was a very big man; about 6' 2" and 250 lbs, but was a big teddy bear! He loved his children very much. He was never a rich man, but he gave himself to his kids!

Paul Fredrick and Herman Raymond were twins, born in Woifelwitz Germany. They were the oldest of four children when they came to America in 1886. Their father had died just shortly before their mother Pauline Uber Hirsch came to America . Also Selma, and Martha the youngest. I have been told that Paul was a small man, but a hard worker. While he and Hilma lived in Des Moines they had a house on Hickman Rd. No heat in the winters except for a cook stove. Paul worked as a Harness maker and later at a furniture store! They raised five children. Nora was the third eldest.
After My father Donald Lee Short passed away I recieved the Hirsch Family Bible published in 1890 in Chicogo Illinios. It was all typed in German except for the headings with the illustrations. Inside HilmaAnnetta Hirsch; Pauls wife wrote all of thier childrens birthdates Baptisums, and confirmation dates as well as the preachers name and church. The big secret was one legal looking form folded up inside it! It was all written in German and had the German seal on it. Everyone in the family knew about it, but it was Olde Formal German and most people could make out what it all meant! In 1999; 113 years after it was written I had it translated word for word with explinations of some of the terms. What it turned out to be was a revised birth certificate for the youngest Minna Selma Martha Hirsch born to Friedrich and Pauline UBER Hirsh. When baby Minna Selma Martha Hirsch was born on Janurary 3th 1876 the town was called WOIFELWITZ in the county of STREHLEN, GERMANY. Ten years later, evidently for passport idenification she had to have it revised because the name of the town was changed to FRIEDERSDORFF, and still in STREHLEN Co. The form was filled out on February 18, 1886.
This document answered alot of questions that hadn't been asked yet! Like the Hirsch's lived in Woifelwitz Germany where he was a "Blue Colar" or laborer, said to have been a butcher. They were of the PROTESTANT faith know here as Lutheran. His wife's maiden name was UBER. It even gives the place of birth; at their apartment at 8:00 AM on Janurary 3 1876. It even points out that the baby was given three first names. That must have been unusual even for those times.
The BIG mystery still exist! The document was signed by Friedrich Hirsch on February 1886. Pauline Uber Hirsch brought their four children to America in August of 1886, but was listed as a widow, and nothing was ever know about what happened to him! Or at least no stories were ever passed on to the grandkids!

83 Becket, James c1758 - c1808
On 17 June 1788 Becket was arrested and charged with the highway robbery of Joseph Tipton in the parish of Holy Cross and St Giles in the town of Shrewsbury. A hempen bag, a linsey waistcoat, two handkerchiefs (one cotton and one silk) and nine shillings in cash had been stolen. In a statement signed with a mark X, Becket said he had been at Mr Pugh's house in Shrewsbury from 6pm till 8.30pm on the night of the crime and had crossed the road to eat his supper at his mother's. He had gone to the bed which he shared with his sister at about nine and remained there till five the next morning. Tipton, a shoemaker of Westbury, alleged that Becket had knocked him down and robbed him between 10 and 11pm on 10 June. Penelope Sheppard said she had seen both men at Mr George's at Norton (a village just outside Shrewsbury) between 8 and 9pm and that they had left together and walked towards the town [Pugh's and George's were probably pubs]. Becket was found guilty and sentenced to death at the 26 July 1788 Shrewsbury (Shropshire) Assizes. He was reprieved to transportation for life in October and remained in Shrewsbury Gaol until early November 1789 when he was sent with three other convicts to the Thames hulk Stanislaus, age given as 30. On the 20th he was embarked on the Surprize transport.

Becket was a skilled brickmaker and soon after arrival he was placed in charge of the brick kilns at Rose Hill (Parramatta). Writing in November 1790 the Marines officer Watkin Tench reported that Becket had 52 people working under him and was producing 25,000 bricks per week. He told Tench he had worked as a brickmaker at Birmingham prior to his conviction, which suggests that he may have committed his crime while staying with his mother during a spell of unemployment.

On 30 January 1791 Becket married Ann Calcut (qv) at Rose Hill, both signing with their marks X. A son, Samuel, baptised there on 2 October, died aged 16 months. Although a prisoner for life, Becket was allowed to earn money and in July 1802 was recorded holding a 30 acre farm at Concord by purchase. Three and a half acres were sown in wheat with another three ready for planting maize. He owned one hog and supported his wife and four children. The family seem to have lived mainly near Parramatta. By 1806 Becket had received a conditional pardon and in August of that year the muster of landholders lists him as a settler on 30 acres in the Parramatta district. He was cultivating 11 acres in wheat, maize barley and vegetables, owned five goats and nine hogs and held ten bushels of maize from a previous crop. It seems likely that this farm was located east of Parramatta on what later became known as Becket's Creek and A'Becket Street, near John Macarthur's Elizabeth Farm and modern Rosehill Race course. It seems likely that he was associated with the construction of Becket's Bridge near Parramatta which was built prior to April 1805 when it was referred to in a Sydney Gazette notice. In August 1806 Becket was granted 30 acres in the Toongabbie district [in the vicinity of Old Windsor Road and Vardys Road].

The latest colonial record traced for Becket is his signature on an address from settlers to Governor Bligh dated 1 January 1808. No record of his death has been found, but by 1814 Ann Becket was described as a widow. Other children born to the couple were James (1793), Samuel (1795), Esther (1798) and Mary (1801).

Notes: Beckett's committal examination is at PRO ASS15/108/ptl; he may have been the James Becket charged at the lent 1785 Shrewsbury Assizes with the highway robbery of Joseph Gwyn in which a purse and money were stolen; this robbery also took place in the parish of Holy Cross and St Giles [the outcome of the case has not been checked, but he was probably acquitted]; for brickmaking details see Tench, Watkin Sydney's First Four Years p196; Becket is definitely recorded in the published version of the landholders' muster of 1802 as holding a farm at Concord by purchase. It has been suggested that this entry is an error because Becket is thought to have been living in or near Parramatta at the time. It is possible, however, that he lived near Parramatta and employed men to work the purchased farm at Concord. In 1806 he was recorded holding another farm outside Parramatta which he had probably also purchased. The 1806 muster is somewhat ambiguous, listing him as a settler on 30 acres at Parramatta in the general muster and on an unspecified grant in the landholders muster. The confusion probably arose from the fact that he was occupying the Parramatta farm at the time of the muster and received the Toongabbie grant in the same month. The Toongabbie grant may have been the 30 acres held by Becket's son James at Seven Hills in 1828. James senior had died insolvent according to a government document dating from about 1820 (ML MSS Bigge Appendix box 12 p51). Some details contributed by A. McEwan, A. Needham & P. Scott. 
BECKET, James Convict (I190)
 
84 CALCUT, ANN
Ann Calcut was sentenced to seven years transportation at the 13 August 1789 Stafford Assizes for the theft of a silver tablespoon, a fan, a cotton gown, a black silk bonnet, a linen apron, a muslin handkerchiefs and a pair of plated shoe buckles belonging to Charles Sowter. She was held in the Stafford County Gaol until 25 October 1789 when she was sent to Woolwich, London, along with four other convict women, for embarkation on the Neptune transport.

At Parramatta on 30 January 1791, six months after her arrival in the colony Calcut married James Becket (tried Shrewsbury, qv), both signing the register with an X. Their first child, Samuel was born in October but died aged 16 months. In 1802 Becket was recorded holding a purchased farm at Concord, although the family appear to have mostly lived in or near Parramatta. In 1806 they were living on a farm outside Parramatta with three sons and two daughters. James Becket died about 1808 and in 1814 Ann was described as a widow of the Parramatta district. She has not been traced in later colonial records.

Notes: some details contributed by A. McEwan, A. Needham & P. Scott; gaol ref. at PRO T90/166; Ann Calcut is recorded incorrectly in the 1806 population muster and Marsden's female muster as Ann Becket, came free; she was indicted as Cacutt, probably in error.

William Gibbs married Mary Triplet at Poundstock Cornwall on 13th January 1762. hey settled in North Tamerton in the south of Stratton Hundred between the rivers Tamar and Aire. Their second child and subsequent six children were born at North Tamerton. We do not know William's occupation - he was possibly a farmer.

94 Alexander SHORT, Nicholas Lockey and John Johnson, all boys, but the two former, notwithstanding, old offenders, were charged with breaking into the fruit lofts of Mr Scott, Quayside, on Sunday morning, and stealing a quantity of apples and oranges.

It appeared that Mr Scott had suffered much from depredations of this character, they having occurred almost weekly. He accordingly applied to Mr Stephens for the purpose of having a policeman exclusively to watch his premises, and on Sunday morning P.C. No. 21, concealed himself into the loft; about half-past one he observed the prisoner Lockey break the window in the roof, at the same time shouting to others outside to "come on."

The three then entered, and after loading from the apple heaps, went to the loft below, and commenced and equally free and easy unloading of the orange chests.

The policeman then interfered and succeeded in taking Johnson into custody; the others escaped, but were captured on the same night. Lockey was committed to hard labour for 3 calendar months; SHORT for 1 calendar month; and Johnson for 1 week.

96 All Saints Church Family F1120
 
97 Although this marriage was registered with NSW BDM, there is no local evidence that this couple ever were in Broken Hill. The Family History Society in Broken Hill have confirmed that there are no marriage records in the Wesleyan, Baptist, Roman Catholic or Chrurch of England parish records.

The FHS at Broken Hill assume that the marriage may have happened at Silverton which is still in the Broken Hill district. All parish records from Silverton have been lost and they do not have any recordsl.

As Frederick died 5 years later, we assume that the marriage in the far west of New South Wales had some significance to the couple. No birth documentation for Eva Reeves Collins can be found in Broken Hill either.

The 1930 Electoral Roll says that Frederick was a Doctor, he may have been in Broken Hill for a short term at the hospital.

Alternativley, the 1928 Sands Directory shows two people with the name F DUKE. One a Dentist @ 426 Darling Street, Balmain NSW and the other a Medical Superintendant in the District Hospital at Tibboburra NSW.

Without a copy of the original marriage certificate, we won't be able to confirm anything.
