  • Birth*: 1820; Percy Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; Date 1822 & location Ont. per 1881 Census. Date 1823 & location Ont. per 1871 Census. Date 1821 & location UC per 1861 Census. Date 1820 & location Cda. per 1851 Census. per "Descendants of Charles Short, Esq.", sent to me via email by Eleanore Dilello, Sep 16 2008.
    Note: Placing Willet McConnell Platt as son of Isaac Storm and Pamela Platt - not sure but looks possible. Dates work re early census for Isaac's male children. Proximity works since looks like Isaac dealt property in Brighton in the 1840's. Willet Platt's middle name is tantalizing - is it his mother's maiden name???
