Miriam Short was christened 10 May 1664 in Ford Parrish, Sussex, England, the daughter of Henry Shoart and Miriam.
Miriam Short immigrated aboard the Welcome, and along with her siblings was beneficiary of her uncle Isaac Ingram's will, written aboard the ship as he lay dying.
"Not long after the arrival of the Welcome, Miriam Short the younger was married to the Welcome passenger, George Thompson, by a Lutheran clergyman named Lawrence Carolus Lockenius, and both the young husband and the clergyman were charged with violation of the laws of the province."
She married three times: George Thompson, William White, Aaron Coppock (30 Nov 1704 at Chichester Meeting House, Chester, Pennsylvania).
She died some time after her husband's will was probated on 17 December 1726. She is named as the executor with James King to assist, and he names his step-children.
Miriam was born circa 1664. She passed away before 1748.

Thanks for posting the Quaker Sticker. Thank you for helping straighten up her profile, and the other profiles associated with her. And, I agree, lots of confusion, but I think we can get it all straightened up!
White-30866 and Short-607 appear to represent the same person because: DOD is after Dec. 1726 as shown in husband, Aaron Fraziers Will, not sure where 1709 date came from. Quaker records indicate Aaron Frazier married Mirriam White, but does not mean she was BORN Miriam White.
