This site was created by Larry Shively who is researching the history of the Shively families. The goal is to have a site where all Shively researchers can share and ask questions in regards to their Shively lines. The largest majority of the Shively family records are located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. There are early records of Shively's also in Virginia and Kentucky. There are not many established Shively lineages back to Europe. There are documented lineages to Switzerland and Germany. Through the sharing of information from all of our research it is desired that all can learn about our Shively families.

Jacob Scheiblen (Scheiblin) And Wife Elizabeth Linn Who Lived In Huntington County, Indiana

Passenger List From Ship "Albany" 
One line of the Shively researchers have found information in the German church records that indicate their German surname might be Scheiblen. Information from Huntington County, Indiana shows the Scheiblen or Scheiblin name used interchanged. A passenger list from the ship "Albany" which arrived in New York on 7-Apr-1847 seems to match these Huntington County, IN families.  In the obituary for Jacob Scheiblen below it is mentioned he came with his family to this country in 1847. 

Jacob Scheiblen was born 29-June-1836 in Germany and died 11-Nov-1908 in Huntington County, IN.  Jacob Scheiblen married Elizabeth Linn who was a daughter of "Gotfriend" Linn.   At least the following children were born to Jacob and Elizabeth: "Lizzie" who married Simon Gross; George who married Elizabeth Pashong; Katie who married Henry Williams; Amelia who married George Kindler; Chris who was born 9-May-1867 and died 11-24-1903 of pneumonia; and Mary who died in 1885 of typhoid fever at the age of 19.

On the Albany passenger list the parents of the family listed are Jacob and Anna. From information found in the Feldberg, Baden, Germany church records the parents may be Johann Jakob Schieblin who married 4-Apr-1831 Anna Maria Roesin.  Johann Jakob Schieblin was born on 29-Jan-1809 and was a son of Johann Georg Schieblin and Barbara Trefzer.  Anna Maria Roesin was the daughter of Jakob Roesin and Anna Maria Schmidlin. Johann Georg Schieblin and Barbara Trefzer were married on 24- Nov-1805.

Paralysis Fatal To Scheiblen
His Death Occurred This Afternoon At 1:15 -- Was Well Known
Paralysis proved fatal to Jacob Scheiblen this afternoon at 1:15 o'clock at which time his spirit took flight after he had lain for more than a week a victim of its stroke.
At the time of his death he was seventy-two years old and would have passed the next mile stone on the 29th of next June had he lived. He was born in Baden, Germany, but came to this country with his parents in 1847.  The family moved to this city immediately after landing on the shores of the new world and here the deceased passed the remainder of his life.
A week ago Monday, while at his place of business at 3 o'clock in the afternoon he suffered his first stroke and was at once removed to his home on Leopold street. The attack left him in a helpless condition, although he was able to recognize those about him. His condition remained pretty much the same until Monday morning about 2 o'clock when he suffered a second stroke, which left him in a comatose state in which condition he remained until his death this afternoon.
In the death of Mr. Scheiblen a familiar character about the city has been removed, as he was well known to many and in his business, he conducted one of the best regulated places in the city. Fights and rowdyism were unknown at the Scheiblen place of business.
He was one of the best known fishermen in the city and many times each year he made fishing trips to the lakes and always came back well loaded with fish and game.
Mr. Scheiblen was born in Germany but for more than fifty years he had been a resident of this city. His father operated a brick kiln and later he owned and managed a brick kiln at about the same point at which his home was located.
Fifty years ago he was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Linn of this city. She preceded him to the great beyond about ten years ago, her death occuring at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Catherine Willliams at Chicago who is now a resident of Ohio.
Seven children blessed the union of whom but three survive their parents. These are George Scheiblen of this city, Mrs. Simon Gross of Logansport and Mrs. Catherine Williams of Ohio. Children death are Christ, William, Mrs. George Kindler and Miss Mary Scheiblen. He leaves one brother and one sister to mourn his death, they being Fred Scheiblen of this city and Mrs. Killmyer of Cincinnati, Ohio.
No funeral arrangements have as yet been made.

The following newspaper obituary was found in the Huntington Weekly Herald, Huntington, Indiana, Friday, August 14, 1896, Page 1, Column 5:
Mrs. Jacob Scheiblin
A message was received in this city Monday evening by George Scheiblin, bearing the sad intelligence of the death of his mother, which occurred in Chicago, yesterday.
Mrs. Scheiblin has been in poor health for some time and a few weeks ago went to Chicago to visit her daughter in the hope that the change would be beneficial. For some time past reports have been received here that the afflicted lady could not survive much longer. The husband went to the city several days ago and was at the bed-side when the end came.
Mrs. Scheiblin was aged fifty-five years and besides her husband the following children survive her: Mrs. Harry Williams, of Chicago, with whom she was visiting; Mrs. Lizzie Gross, of Logansport; George, Chris, William and Miss Amelia, all of this city. Mrs. Henry Powell, a sister, of Logansport, also survives her.
The remains were brought to this city on Erie train 12, Tuesday night, and funeral services were held at the German Lutheran church, Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. The deceased was a member of this denomination.

Frederick Scheiblin (Scheiblen) And Wife Mary Beauchamp Who Lived In Huntington County, Indiana

The Shively genealogy researchers are asking for help from the Scheiblen (Scheiblin) families.  A request goes out to the Scheiblen (Scheiblin) male members to ask if they would be willing to participate in the Shively Family DNA project.  The reason for this request follows as this weeks blog article.

One line of the Shively's descend from established research that has the earliest known ancestor as Michael Shively born 1718 in Eybach, Wurttemberg, Germany.  It has been discovered in the Protestant church records In Eybach that the Shively family records there are found under the surname Scheiblen.  Johann Michael Scheiblen was born 9-Aug-1718 and was the son of Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler.  Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler were married on 25-Jul-1715.  Johann Wilhelm was the son of Johannis Scheiblen and Ursulae Dauner. She was the daughter of Michael Buhrler and Magdalena.  Johann Wilhem Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler had another son Johannes Scheiblen who was born 6-Oct-1720.  It appears that Barbara Buhrler Scheiblen died on 14-Oct-1721.  Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen married a second time on 27-Jan-1722 to Ursula Kuhnlen who was the daughter of Johannis Kuhnlen and Mariae Schiller.  From previous research it has been written that Michael Shively came to America in 1738.  The Shivelys are hoping that a Scheiblin (Scheiblen) family member will participate in the Shively Family DNA project to see if there is an established relationship between the two surnames.

The Scheiblin (Scheiblen) surname in the US is not that common.  The surnames are seemingly used interchanged in the records found in Huntington County, IN records.  The surname also is found in New Jersey records.  From research done for this article the family
Passenger List From Ship "Albany"
names listed on the passenger lists for the ship Albany which arrived in New York on 7-Apr-1847 the names match those in Huntington County, IN. The age for Barbe (Barbara) who married Henry Kellermeyer match the 1900 Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH date of birth listed as Sep-1843. The list gives the age of Frederic as 6 but in the obituary below it states he was 8 years old when he came to America which would match his date of birth of 1839.

Frederick Scheiblen (Scheiblin) is found in the records of Huntington County, IN. He was born on 15-Feb-1839 in Feldberg, Baden, Germany and died 10-Aug-1913.  He was married to Mary Beauchamp Fooshee on 6-Mar-1864.  Mary Bechaump had been married 1st to William Fooshee.  They had one son John D. Fooshee.  Frederick and Mary Scheiblin had 5 children.  Three of the children died young and the surviving children were Emma May who married George B. Richason on 26-Apr-1893 in Huntington County and Bertha who was born 11-Aug-1873 died 3-May-1945 and was married to David Howell Davis.

The following newspaper obituary was extracted from The Huntington Press, Huntington, Indiana, Thursday, August 14, 1913, Page 8, Columns 3-4:
Huntington Resident, Native Of Germany, Dies In Delphos, Ohio
The following from the Delphos (Ohio) Herald relates facts of interest concerning a former Huntington resident who died in Delphos.
Death came to Frederick Scheiblin at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George B. Richdson, on East Fourth street, Sunday afternoon, the culmination of  a long illness. Last April Mr. Scheiblin was stricken with apoplexy, from which he never fully recovered. He was also a sufferer from dropsy and a few weeks ago a complication of diseases developed and he had gradually been growing weaker. It was realized that his strength was waning and that the end was nearing and loved ones were constantly with him to give him comfort and care.  Mr. Scheiblin's death came at 4:45 o'clock Sunday afternoon, bringing a long life to a close. For the past three years Mr. Scheiblin had made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Richason, on East Fourth street.
Frederick Scheiblin was born in Feldberg, Baden, Germany, February 15, 1839, and was passed 74 years of age at the time of his death. When he was eight years of age he came to America with his parents, the family locating at Huntington, Ind.  Nearly his entire life was spent in Huntington and vicinity, there he grew from boyhood to young manhood, married and established his home.  He was employed as a bricklayer for many years but for the last fifteen years had done no active service. In 1898 he received a fall which incapacitated him for active labor, and he had since lived a retired life.
Mr. Scheiblin was united in marriage to Mary B. Foshee, in Huntington, Ind. March 6, 1864. To this union were born five children, three of whom died in infancy. Two daughters, Mrs. George Richason and Mrs. Martha Davis, of Delphos and one son John Foshee of Huntington, Ind., are survivning. Eight grand children and two great grandchildren are also living. Mrs. Scheiblin passed to the better world 21 years ago on March 21.
During the Civil war Mr. Scheiblin served his country three years as a member Thirty-second Indiana Volunteer infantry. At the expiration of three years' service he was honorably discharged.
Mr. Scheiblin was confirmed in the German Lutheran church in Huntington, Ind., in his young days and was affiliated with that church attending services there as long as his health permitted.  During his long illness his sufferings were intense, but he bore them with remarkable fortitude and was ready and willing to answer the summons of the death angel and enter into rest. He was ever cheerful to those about him during his illness and very considerate. His life work has now been ended and he has been summoned to receive the reward for a life well spent.
The funeral was held from the residence Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev. L. H. Cressley, of the M. E. church and interment made in West side cemetery.
