It appears from the Scotland Census that Emily Farquharson was born in Fife in abt 1828

This is the 1851 Census for Emily Shortt

1851 Scotland Census about Emely Shortt

Cathrine Shortt 9 born Inverness
Thomas Shortt 3 Mo born Inverness
Jane Shortt 75 - Williams Mother born England
Isabella Robertson 29 - House Servant
Jessie Mckenzie 26 - House Servant

She is also on the 1861, 1871, 1881 and 1901 but it looks like William Henry Shortt may have died before the 1861 Census as he is not on the other census and Emily is listed as Head.

1861 - 3 Ness Bank Inverness
1871 - 4 Nep Back (actually 4 Ness Bank) Inverness - Lodging House Keeper
1881 - 4 Ness Bank Inverness - Annuitant
1901 - Haugh Rd Murray Place No 2 - Own Means

The best place to look for further information is on the Scotalnds People site, pay per view, you should be able to find their marriage and Emily's birth.
