|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.
