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.

Friendly Steak Bet Cures Smoking Habit
A friendly bet is going a long way toward making it interesting for Robert R. Shively, 858 Feist avenue, who stopped smoking cigarets when he heard the U. S. Surgeon General’s frightening report on the dangers of smoking.
Shively and Donald Davis, both employees of Van Buskirk and Brother store, 228 High street, engaged in the wager for a thick juicy steak. Whoever smokes a cigaret first will have to buy the holdout a steak.
Neither expects to lose and it seems they will probably be eating steaks together with the money they saved by giving up the tobacco habit.
Shively started smoking in 1944 and was up to a pack and a half a day this year, 20 years later. He enjoyed smoking and never switched to filter cigarets or mentholated brands. Gimmicks never attracted him.
“The the report just convinced me that I should stop,” said Shively. Davis likewise decided to stop. Quitting wasn’t the basis of the wager. The co-workers made the bet in the event the other allowed his resolve to weaken.
“I haven’t minded it at all,” said Shively. “I found it very easy to quit. I finished one pack - three or four smokes — and never bought another. I haven’t been nervous. I haven’t been tempted. As far as I’m concerned I’ll never smoke again.”
Mrs. Shively also is attempting to stop. “I know it’s a little harder for her,” said her husband. “She really enjoyed smoking. I was surprised she even considered giving it up.”

Ceylon Grain Man Gets Five Years In Prison
Judge Gets Pathetic While Passing Sentence, Embezzled Over $17,000
(From Fairmont Sentinel)
Judge L. S. Nelson this afternoon sentenced O. L. Shively, confessedly responsible for the shortage of over $17,000 that exists in the accounts of the Ceylon Farmers Elevator Co., to the state penitentiary at Stillwater. Shively was at once taken to that institution to begin a sentence of fie years that may be reduced by good behavior.
Called for sentence in chambers Shively was asked by Judge Nelson if he had anything to say why sentence should not be pronounced upon him at that time.
"Yes, your Honor," was the reply, "If possible I would like to have it postponed until spring so that I can be her and support my wife and three children through the winter. They have no other means of support."
Leo. J. Seifert, attorney for Shively informed the court that his client has no property other than wearing apparel and some household furniture, nor has his wife. The children, girls, are aged 8, 11 and 14. Mr. Seifert told the court that since he was arrested July 8, 1922, and at liberty on bond Shively has worked steadily as cook on a C. & N. W. bridge crew, earning $114 per month, and that if sentence was deferred he could continue such employment.
Interrogated by County Attorney Cooper, Shively denied that he has ever taken a dollar of the elevator company's money for himself but had lost it all in grain speculations and that he could give no information as to the amount. He said he began speculating when first hired eight years ago.
Mr. Cooper told the court that he had been able to trace between four and five thousand dollars of the shortage to grain gambling operations and that the balance remained unaccounted for but appeared to be covered by juggling flour, feed and coal accounts and bank deposits.
It was discovered that Shively bought and sold wheat on futures in the name of the elevator, which handles practically none of the grain. One  5,000 bushel transaction showed a loss of $1,300. Another of Shively's current accounts with a grain gambling house carries a credit still coming to the elevator of $150.
Mr. Cooper said he felt that he must oppose Shively's request for deferring sentence.
Mr. Seifert said that the elevator company had been running since 1906, and thought if possible that the shortages may have in part autendated Shively's employment as there had never been an audit until within the last few weeks. This audit was made by men from the office of the state public examiner.
Judge Nelson asked Mr. Shively the customary questions before passing sentence, which he said that under the law he could not defer. Shively gave his age as 44 and birthplace as Ogle county, Illinois. He has lived at Armstrong, Iowa or in this vicinity since the age of 14, making his home with his grandparents while attending school, in which he reached the eight grade. His employment was stated as farmer, barber, elevator man and cook. He declared that he has never touched a drop of liquor in his life.
Explaining his shortage he said: "I was playing the market. I got behind and thought by keeping on I could catch up. Instead, it got worse. I can't tell whether the shortage is $1,000 or $20,000."
Shively denied losing any of the elevator's money in personal gambling but admitted he had played some poker with Ceylon associates. He declared that he had paid a good deal of his personally earned money on elevator shortages.
Before passing sentence, Judge Nelson said: "i have been on the bench 12 years and have sentenced many men for every offense from a simple misdemeanor to murder in the first degree but I have never had to pass sentence in a case that hurt me as this one does, knowing you as I do. Your wife is a sister of mine not in blood, but quite as dear. (The reference as to fraternal society connections). Your family is destitute. I cannot defer sentence under the law. There is very little excuse for what you have done with your education, intelligence and opportunities and your connections with societies that have taught you your duty to God, country, family, neighbor and self. I think you realize that for the protection of society if is necessary for your to suffer punishment. You have escaped charges that might have imprisoned you for as long as 20 years. You will be sentenced for five years and your own conduct can make it much less". 
The judge then passed formal sentence.
When Shively arose for sentences his wife broke down and wept bitterly.  After judgement of the court had been pronounced, she threw herself into her husband's arms, sobbing convulsively, until Shively was led away. The judge and all others in the room were greatly moved and several shook hands with the prisoner and sought to comfort his wife.

His Young Wife And Left Bradford Behind
Guy Weybright, Well Known School Teacher, Is Missing There
Bradford citizens are a good deal exercised over the somewhat mysterious disappearance of Pro Guy Weybright, a school teacher of that place.
It is said that he was last seen on Thursday evening of last week and that he took his departure without apprising anyone on his intension to do so. No word having been received from him, it is presumed that he has deserted his wife, a highly respected young woman. A brother of the missing man came to the village Monday and it is said claimed that he had purchased Weybright's horse and buggy, but L T DuBois, the father of Mrs. Weybright, refused to let him have them. From this incident it is believed that the brothers have planned flight together or that the claimant of the outfit is aiding his brother to escape without being traced. No reason for the young man's leave-taking has been divulged, though of course the ordinary rumors are afloat in the village.
Weybright is quite well known throughout the county from his connection with local politics. He moved among the best people of Bradford and was well thought of.
