June 24, 2000 Don, David, Mary & Brian Short

wedding photo from Don Short home page (he signed our guest book!
That was the first we knew of Don.)
Many more Short wedding photos there
Don's great great grandfather was Benjamin Franklin Raber (Hattie Raber's father)
Bruce Bloomquist's great great grandfather was also Benjamin Franklin Raber. Bruce's mother, Frances Stringham Bloomquist was Hattie's daughter. That makes Bruce & Don second cousins! Benjamin Franklin Raber and wife, Malvina Sheeley Raber were the parents of eleven children. I suspect Bruce has many other Raber second cousins
out there.
