Thanks for the tip about John & Martha. I am not really related to the Adeys -- one of my very distant aunts, Mary Short, born ca 1797, married William Adey, born ca 1792. Your Adeys would, presumably, be his kinsfolk; however, I am not sure how they are related.
Because of the complex relationship patterns in Nfld outports, instead of just researching my own Short family, I entered into my database as many people from the Hant's Harbour area as I could chain together. I now have over 6000 names and am happy to share them; however, because of early records that have been lost/destroyed (or no records ever created)I don't know how or if the four Short lines from that area are related, even though I can trace most of them back 200 years and I have many "orphans" I cannot connect with these four families at all! Better luck with your Adeys! Kim
