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.

Carey Monroe Shively And Wife Theda Addie Howard Who Lived In Mahoning County, Ohio

Carey Monroe Shively was born 5-April-1860 in Mahoning County, Ohio, the son of John B. Shively and Susanna King. John B Shively and Susanna King were married in Mahoning County on 25-October-1855.  Carey Monroe Shively was married to Theda Addie Howard in Mahoning County on 26-December-1891. Carey Monroe Shively died on 26-March-1934 in Mahoning County. 

The following newspaper article was extracted from The Salem News, Salem, Ohio, Tuesday, March 27, 1934, Page 1, Columns 4-5:
Berlin Center Man Who Hoped To Ride Bicycle On 100th Birthday Is Dead
Carey Monroe Shively Will Be Buried Thursday In $30,000 Mausoleum He Built Himself
Carey Monroe Shively, Berlin Center jeweler who had hoped to celebrate his 100th birthday by riding his cherished high-wheel bicycle, died at 5:30 p.m. Monday, 26 years short of his goal.
Thursday, he will be laid to rest in the gleaming marble mausoleum which he built for himself and his wife a few years ago in Berlin Center. Acquaintances said it cost him $30,000.
Official Of Canfield Bank
Shively was widely known throughout the county, not only for his fondness for his old "high-wheeler" but as a shrewd business man.   For many years he served as a director and vice president of the Farmers' National Bank at Canfield.  He retired last fall because of poor health.
Born April 5, 1860, in Milton township, Shively was a son of John and Susanna King Shively.  His mother was born in Berlin Center, while his father came from Pennsylvania.  when he was a small child the family moved to Berlin Center.
For about eight years he operated a general store in Berlin Center and for 30 years was a jeweler and optometrist.
Liked To Ride Bicycle
Shively found great satisfaction his high-wheeled bicycle.  Ever gleaming with reminiscence, he told often how he first rode it 20 miles to Youngstown on his 17th birthday, and recalled how it "burned up the road".
The bicycle cost $135 when new.  He claimed that it was the first high-wheeler to have rubber tires.  It always occupied the same corner in a building adjoining his office.
Even in his later years, he  continued to ride it remarking: "For thrills and smooth riding, give me the bicycle." He made it a point to ride the bicycle on his birthday and six years ago, rode it about city streets of Youngstown.
Mr. Shively had an automobile, but was rather timid about driving it, especially after he was injured five or six years ago.  He refused to drive to Youngstown, and when he had business there, he would drive to Canfield, and catch a ride into the city with a friend.
He was married Dec. 29, 1892, to Addie F. Howard, who survives.
Member Of Goshen Grange
He was a member of the I. O. O. F. Lodge, No. 155, Canfield, and two years ago was presented a 50-year pin by the lodge.  He also was a member of the Goshen grange.  He was a lifelong Democrat.
Before his death Mr. Shively had made all arrangements for his funeral service, which will be held at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the family home.  He left a note giving the dimensions of the size of the crypt in the mausoleum, so that they would know the size of a casket.
He also left the text for his funeral sermon and requested that Rev. Elmer Kale of Indiana, former pastor of the Mt. Mariah Lutheran church at Berlin Center, be one of the pastors at the service.  Rev. Kale will be assisted by Rev. Leonard Smith of Berlin Center.

Shively's In Eagle Prairie Or Rio Del Or Rio Dell, Humboldt County, California

The Shively blog written on July 23, 2011 featured William Beaser Shively And Wife, Caroline Gould, In Humboldt County, California. The following newspaper article extracted from The Humboldt Times, Thursday, February 11, 1965, Page 15, Column 1 mentions the Shively families in the history.
By Andrew Genzoli
RIO DELL HAS A HISTORY -- On February 16, voters of Rio Dell will make history, when they decide for or against incorporation.  A large, busy community, Rio Dell is outgrowing a "hand-to-mouth" existence, and now looks to a dignified permanency.
Rio Dell has a good historical background.  Our correspondent, Evelyn McCormick proves this, as she becomes today's "guest columnist".

Rio Dell's Settlers
By Evelyn McCormick
Many changes have taken place in Eagle Prairie since the first which man walked through the gateway in the redwoods in 1850.  Prior to that date Indians had walked over its vast meadows and wooded sidehills.  After 115 years, its residents have asked for the privilege of voting on incorporation for the proposed city of Rio Dell.
Eagle Prairie came to be known as Rio Del (one "l"). Bordering the Scotia-Rio Dell Bridge, the Italian community was known as Wildwood.  Another community of residents between the Blue Slide area and Rio Del was the Bellevue District. During the 1940's all the communities were united, and officially adopted the name of Rio Dell (two "lls").
The first while travelers knew the flat acreage circled by the Eel River as Eagle Prairie. Reddick McKee of the United States Indian Agency came through in 1850. He wrote in his Washington, D. C., Journal that no one resided on Eagle Prairie at that time.  McKee was the first to try to open an overland trail from Santa Rosa to the north.
This fertile prairie was described to be an area of humid atmosphere bounded by the Eel River on the north, south and east and only by Indian trails to the west. Explorers to this area came via Grizzly Bluff to Blue Slide.
On July 16, 1853, W. B. Shively of Chico, and his brother, James, claimed 160 acres of land in Eagle Prairie.  The claim was made at "eight and one-half o'clock" in the Humboldt County Recorder's office.  Lewis K. Wood was recorder. Witnesses to the claim were John L. Young and Thomas Bell.  It is recorded in Book A, Page 331.
Shively immediately built a log cabin behind what was later to become Rio Dell House, the site of the old Moore Hotel.  The hotel was built in the 1870's.
The new land owner cultivated and sowed the land with oats, barley and potatoes, the latter being the favorite crop of farmers in the Eel River Valley.
The late Mrs. Pearl Corning Croco of Bellview was the granddaughter of W. B. Shively.  Shively's wife was Carrie Gould Winemiller (a widow with two sons).  She was the daughter of John Bean Gould, an early settler.
In 1856 a man named Kelsey arrived on the prairie.  He proposed exploring and marking a wagon road to the Russian River.  His companion was Seth Kinman, a well-known Humboldt historical character.
They left Eagle Prairie following the southwest side of the river until passing Colonel Washington Monument on Monument Peak in the Bear River Mountains, southwest of Mount Pierce.  Virgin timber and other obstacles in their path compelled them to give up their plans.
W. J. Sweasey and his party arrived in Eagle Prairie in 1856.  They reported the prairie settlement was the first white settlement they had encountered since leaving Healdsburg. They had used an overland rail to the present site of Fort Seward.
At Fort Seward they built a raft of redwood logs and ferried down the river, fording shallow places several times until arriving at Eagle Prairie.  The wagons carried on the raft were the first ones to come to Humboldt County on the south.
In 1860 Indians caused some trouble to the settlers. They were moved to Hoopa that same year.  Shively, who helped to round up the Indians, adopted two of their children and raised them to adulthood.  The Wiyot (Weott) Tribe's territory terminated on the southern border of the prairie.  Local mountains separated these Indians from the less-cultured Indians to the south.
Between 1862 and 1864, the Indians drifted back to this area.  According to Ferndale Enterprise of September 17, 1864, the Shively family was burned out by Indians who set fire to their grain fields.
W. B. Shively's daughter, Abbie, was reported to be the first white child born on the prairie.  A son, Dan, was born to the couple in 1867.  In 1868 the Shively family moved to Bluff Prairie (now Shively, named in the early settler's honor).
A deed dated November 5, 1864, shows that James A. Harris settled in Eagle Prairie.  His wife was Abbie Gould, a sister of Mrs. W. B. Shively.
By 1865 the Indian situation had improved and a wagon road welcomed settlers to the area. A William Duckett from Michigan was an Eagle Prairie farmer at this time.
During the 1860's and 1870's the area began to grow.  By 1873, Azel A. Fuller of Massachusetts owned 320 acres on the prairie.  An Oregon settler, Archibald Crisman, also owned 320 acres here.  A Humboldt Times, dated January 22, 1876, told of Crisman's developing a vein of coal in the bluffs opposite the lower part of Eagle Prairie.  The vein was reported as of long quantity and questionable quality.  Max Crisman (a grandson of Crisman) resides in Belleview today.
Hiram W. Dean filed for 160 acres of government land on the south end of Eagle Prairie, later called the Wildwood Tract.  Rio Dell's Dean Creek was named for him.  His original house (two story) later called the Old Brown House and more recently called the Storybook House, still stand on Orchard Road.
The era of Lorenzo D. Painter began in 1879 when he began building the city of "Rio Del", later changed to "Rio Dell".
Whether or not Rio Dell steps into a new era, that of an incorporated city, will be decided by the voters at next Tuesday's election, it still has a good chapter of Humboldt history.

Marvin Elton Shively

To the right is a picture of son Marvin Shively that  was extracted from an article located in the Wilkes-Barre Record, Friday, October 12, 1917, Page 20, Column 4:
Promoted To Corporal
Marvin Shively, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Shively, 28 Parsons Court, this city, member of Battery D, 109th Field Art., formerly the 3d Pa. Field Art., stationed at Camp Hancock, Augusta, Ga., has been promoted to corporal.  

Marvin E. Shively and Elizabeth T. Weir were married on 30-October-1920.

The lineage of the William Shively family appears with the name of Daniel Shively on the 1830 and 1840 Huntingdon County, PA records. The 1850 Huntingdon County census is the first census that lists names of the Shively family and children. On this census is Daniel Shively born ca. 1798, wife Mary born ca. 1804, Samuel Shively born ca. 1834, Mary born ca. 1837, Minerva born ca. 1838 and John W. born ca. 1844. Blair County, PA census records beginning in 1870.  Listed on the census is the household of S.W. Shively age 35, wife L.A. age 32, son M.C. age 11, son G.L. age 9, son W. C. age 6, daughter G.M. age 4, daughter E.M. age 3, son O.P. age 1, father Daniel age 72, and mother in law Elizabeth Sayler age 72.  From research it is believed the initials stand for Samuel  W Shively, wife Elizabeth "Lizzie" A age 32, son Maurice Charles age 11, son George L age 9, son William S age 6, daughter Grace M age 4, daughter Elizabeth Mary age 3, son Oliver Perry age 1.     By 1880 Samuel may have died because "Sarah" Shively is listed as the head of household on the 1880 Newport, Perry County, PA census.  In the household are Sarah Shively age 42, son Charles age 21, son George age 19, son William age 16, daughter Elizabeth age 12, son Perry age 10, daughter Katie age 9, and mother Elizabeth Saylor age 83.

The PA death records for the mother of William S Shively, Elizabeth A Saylor,  list her birth date as 20-Oct-1839, daughter of Samuel Saylor, and her date of death as 21-Feb-1911. She was buried in Newport Cemetery, Perry County, PA. A newspaper obituary for Elizabeth Saylor Shively was found but when comparing with other records seems to be full of errors. The following was extracted from The Wilkes-Barre Record, Wednesday, February 22, 1911, Page 5, Column 4:
