Looking for relatives of WILLIAM HENRY SHORTT of Inverness, Scotland

Query by Revel

Hi - my name is Revel Kemp, and my 93 y.o. mother was a Shortt.
Last year, I was lucky enough to find the grave, in Inverness,
Scotland, of my great great grandfather, William Henry Shortt, and his wife - maiden name Emily Farquharson.(my great great grandma).
William was previously married to a Jane McAndrew, who died, not long after giving birth to a daughter, Catherine. (died 4th Nov, 1841)
William was born in Ireland, so I believe, on 8th March, 1807 and
died on 19th January, 1861. One of his sons was my great grandfather,
Thomas Mountsteven Shortt, who was born on 1st January, 1851, and
died in Adelaide, South Australia on 19th July, 1938.
I have recently found info on Thomas's brother's son (his brother was
William Henry Shortt) and HIS son was Colonel Henry Edward Shortt - a quite famous man who lived a lot in India - fought in both world wars and was a well-known parasitologist, finding out how malaria was spead and how it incubated in the human body. b 1887 - d 1987.
If anyone else has tracked this family, please contact me on...

Thanks in anticipation !!!!
Cheers and regards - Revel.
