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.

Michael Shively - 1806 - England

Michael Shively - 1806 - England
The Shively researchers are asking for any additional information regarding the document found on Fold3 when searching for War of 1812 information. From the document it is recorded that Michael Shively served in His Majesty's 73rd Regiment of Foot. From Wikipedia the following information is taken "The 73rd Regiment of Foot was an infantry regiment of the British Army raised in 1780. It amalgamated with the 42nd Regiment of Foot to form the Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) in 1881. The regiment was raised as the 2nd Battalion, 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot in March 1780, with eight officers from the 1st Battalion being detached to help raise the new battalion. The battalion was sent to India in January 1781 and took part in the Siege of Mangalore in autumn 1783 during the Second Anglo-Mysore War. It was still in India when the battalion received regimental status in 1786 as the 73rd (Highland) Regiment of Foot. The new regiment remained in India and saw action at the Siege of Seringapatam in 1792 during the Third Anglo-Mysore War, the Siege of Pondicherry in August 1793 during the French Revolutionary Wars and the capture of the Dutch settlements in Ceylon in 1795. It went on to form part of the storming party at the Siege of Seringapatam in April 1799 during the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War before returning to England in July 1806."

Transcription of the document by Fold3 says Michael Shively was born in Parish of Wilham in or near the Market Town of Wilham in the County of Westembergh.  No such county or town could be found in England.  In looking at the document it appears the County could be Wirtembergh which would lead to suspect he might have been German. 

The document gives a description of Michael Shively. In 1806 he is listed as being 36 years of age (born about 1770), 5 feet 5 1/2 inches in height, brown hair, hazle eyes and dark complexion. 

Any additional information regarding the contents of this document or comments will be greatly appreciated.  No additional information could be found regarding this Michael Shively.

The following newspaper article appeared in the Columbus Dispatch, Columbus, Ohio, Sunday, December 31, 1951, Page 10A, Column 4:
Charleston Man Hunts 7 Uncles
Kenneth R. Shively of Charleston, W.Va., is devoting part of the holiday season trying to locate seven uncles whom he has never seen. Helping him with his search is his father-in-law, K. R. Beckner, of 796 E. Mound St.
Shively moved to West Virginia from Oregon with scant information about his uncles, only that they are believed to be farmers in and around Pickaway County.  All, of course,  are named Shively but only two first names are known, Carl and Ray.
Shively can be reached at 416 Reynolds Av, Apt. C, Charleston, W.Va.

A related article followed in the Columbus Dispatch, Sunday, January 6, 1952, Page 1, Columns 2-3:
Was Searching For 7 Uncles,
Story Turns Up Half-Brother
He was looking for seven uncles to celebrate the holiday season and found a half-brother! That's what happened when a Charleston W.Va. man asked his father-in-law, K. R. Beckner, of 796 E. Mound St. to help locate seven uncles whom he had never seen. 
Beckner told The Dispatch about it, and the story appeared Sunday, Dec. 23.
Beckner said Saturday that while the uncles were not found, the story led to the location of a half-brother in Worthington, who was thought to have died some years ago.
The newly found relative was identified as Donald B. Shively of 100 W. Riverglen Dr., Worthington, half brother of Kenneth R. Shively of Charleston, W. Va., Beckner's son-in-law. 
According to Beckner, a series of letters and phone calls got under way following the story in the Dispatch two weeks ago. The climax came Friday night when the West Virginian learned of his half-brother at Worthington.
Happy over finding a half-brother, the Charleston W. Va., man has redoubled his efforts to locate the seven uncles.
Shively moved to West Virginia from Oregon with scant information about his uncles, only that they are believed to be farmers in and around Pickaway County. All, of course, are named Shively but only two names are known, Carl and Ray.
Kenneth Shively can be reached at 416 Reynolds Av., Apt. C, Charleston W. Va.

This history starts with the father of Kenneth R. Shively and Donald B. Shively who was Hamer Charles Shively. Hamer Charles Shively (also seen in records as Homer C. and Charles Shively) was the son of Isaac Shively and Elmira Fitzwater.  Hamer C. was born 31-Aug-1883 and died 9-Jul-1973 in Coos County, Oregon. He is buried in Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery, Coos Bay, Coos County, Oregon.  Hamer was married first to Estella Roberts on 27-Aug-1908. Estella (Stella) was born 25-Jun-1890 in Mercer County, Ohio and died 2-Aug-1910, the daughter of William Roberts and Louisa Smith.  To the union of Hamer Shively and Stella Roberts was born one son, Donald B. Shively.  The obituary of Stella mentions that Hamer Charles Shively was working and living in Idaho at the time of her death.  Charles Shively married second to Nellie Gertrude Garlick in 1919. Nellie was born 20-Jun-1893 in Quick Front, Nebraska and died 26-Sep-1967, the daughter of John F. Garlick and Sarah J. Garber. One of the sons of this union was Kenneth R. Shively.  Nellie married second to Chester Myers on 2-Jun-1954 in Linn County, Oregon.

The uncles that Kenneth Shively was searching for were the sons of Isaac Shively and Elmira Fitzwater.  The sons were George Angell Shively, Edward Shively, WIlliam Shively, Joseph Shively, Walter Shively, David Carl Shively, Royale Shively.  For additional information on these familes review the blog article written on 12-Sep-2015 about Issac Shively and Elmira Fitzwater, the blog article written on 4-Jun-2016 about George Angell Shively and the blog article written on 24-Dec-2016 about Joseph Shively.

Christian Schaeufele (Shively) And Wife Rosa Steinbrenner From Germany To Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio

Carolyn M. Kippenberger Shively
A unique genealogy request was recently received. The request was from a present homeowner who lives in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio in the home where Philip Kippenberger once lived and had his business. The home is at 2225 E. Fifth Street in Dayton. Philip Kippenberger was a tailor and had a shop on the lower floor while the family lived on the second floor.  Philip Kippenberger's daughter, Carolyn M. Kippenberger married Alvin Edward Shively. The homeowner would like to locate any old photo's taken on or of the Kippenberger property. The desire is to obtain and frame the pictures and display in her home. From the research it was discovered there are still living descendants of the Alvin Shively and Carolyn Kippenberger union living in the Dayton, Ohio area.

Following is the genealogy research that was found.  Christian Schaeufele was born 20-Apr-1859 in Germany a son of John Schaeufele and Louise Schiese. He immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1884.  Christian Schaeufele married Rosa Steinbrenner on 5-Oct-1886 in Montgomery County, Ohio. Christian died on 10-Sep-1930 and was buried in Woodland Cemetery.  His wife, Rosa Steinbrenner Schaeufele died in 1954.  They had at least the three following children:  1) John F. Schaeufele born 28-Jul-1887 in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio and died 2-Jan-1909, buried Woodland Cemetery 2) Ida Rosa Schaeufele born Feb-1889 and died May-1906 3) Alvin Edward Schaeufele (Shively) born 14-Jan-1892 and died 11-Oct-1974.

Philip Kippenberger was born 3-May-1862 in Germany. He immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1887. Philip Kippenberger married Mary Hock ca. 1890. He died 18-Apr-1944 and was buried in Woodland Cemetery. His wife, Mary Hock Kippenberger was born 17-Oct-1854 in Germany and died 19-Aug-1925 and is buried in Woodland Cemetery.  They had one daughter, Carolyn M. Kippenberger who was born 24-Jun-1897 and died 14-May-1991.  Carolyn's marriage to Alvin Edward Shively may have been her second marriage. Her first husband might have been Walter L. Miller having been married 1st on 6-Sep-1918 in Lucas County, Ohio.

She, who was a picture of freshness and health, fell ill a year ago with lung disease. All that could be done for their salvation was done; But in vain. On that day, she was saved from her painful and painful sufferings, which she bore with patience.
She was born and raised in Dayton. 
On their coffins the grieved parents and two brothers, John and Alvin, mourned as well as a great circle of friends; For her kind and amiable nature made her popular with all who knew her.
