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.

Crushed To Death
Two Miners Caught In A Snow-Slide Yesterday
John W. Bradley and H. W. Shively Lose Their Lives Near The Durant Tunnel--Buried
Underneath From Twenty To Thirty Feet Of Snow - They Had Visited A Warm Place To
Eat Their Dinners
The great snowstorm which set in Monday night already caused the death of two of our citizens, and unless great precautions are observed by those exposed to the perils of snow slides, many more fatalities may be looked for.  At about 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon a report came down from the Durant tunnel that a snow slide had just occurred. burying two men employed in the Little Nell mine. Hurrying to the scene of the disaster a reporter for The Times found a large force of men working with all their strength in the hope of being able to discover the imprisoned men in time to save their lives.  Mr. Rohlfing, a civil engineer employed at the Durant tunnel, stated that it was not positively known that the men were buried, but that they had been seen a few moments before the avalanche occurred at about the point of its descent.
The gentleman further said that he was at the mouth of the Durant tunnel when a Swede by the name of Anderson, came running up, saying that he thought Bradley and Shively were buried beneath it.  Mr. Rohlfing gave the alarm and all the men in the Durant tunnel hurried out and began to make search for the missing men. Fresh tracks were discovered leading directly toward the great mass of fallen snow which was in some places twenty to thirty feet in depth.  The men seized rods of iron, shovels and everything else that could aid them in their search for the missing men and thoroughly explored the line of foot travel that the men would necessarily follow in going up the trail.
In a little while more men arrived on the ground and it is said that there were during the greater part of the search at least fifty persons engaged in the effort to find the missing men. About 4 o'clock the body of Shively was found pressed in against the ore house of the Little Nell where it had been carried by the force of the sliding snow.  One side of the unfortunate man's face was severely bruised but there were no other marks of violence upon the body. The search went on and a short time after Bradley's body was also found near the same place where his companion and been discovered.  Both men had apparently been simply smothered to death.
The unfortunate men, H. W. Shively and John T. Bradley, were working in the Little Nell mine as co-lessees of C. H. Bennett, and it appears from later information that they left off work at noon yesterday and went down to the Durant tunnel where they were acquainted to eat dinner where it was warm and comfortable, and upon their return to the Little Nell, situated about 300 feet distant, were caught by the snow slide.
Mr. Shively leaves a wife and three children in poor circumstances, and his death is certainly very sad.  It is said that they has been out of work for some time before entering upon his duties at the Little Nell a few days ago, and that he had just made arrangements to borrow a little money to make a payment upon the property in which he lived.  Mr. Shively has a brother living in Richmond, Ind., who is a very prominent attorney.
Mr. Bradley is said to be unmarried, with no friends in this section of the country. He has resided in Aspen for several years, coming here from New Jersey where he followed the business of rubber manufacturer.  He lived by himself in a little house he owned near the ben of Monarch street, in Eames' addition.  About two months ago he took the Keeley cure, and is very highly spoken of by those who knew him.
The arrangements for burial of the unfortunate men have not yet been made.

The following was located in the Aspen Daily Times, February 7, 1893:
Card Of Thanks
I beg space in the columns of The Times to tend my heartfelt thanks to friends and neighbors for their kind assistance in the death and burial of my dear husband, to the men for their untiring efforts to find my husband, dead or alive, to Sam D. Goza, and to Manager Rice and the Stuttz Theatrical company for their kind services in my behalf.  May God in his infinite mercy spare them from ever having to go through the affliction which I have been called upon to endure.
                                        Mrs. H. W. Shively

The kindness of the community was demonstrated in this article following the death of H. W. Shively. The article was located in the Aspen Daily Times, February 5, 1893:
At The Tivoli
"A Celebrated Case" at Mrs. Shively's Benefit Monday Night
The Stuttz New York Theater company will present "A Celebrated Case" at the Tivoli Monday night for the benefit of Mrs. H. W. Shively, whose husband perished in the late snow slide. The Stuttz company is well known is Aspen, playing a successful engagement here last week, and as The Times has already spoken so favorably of them it is not necessary to do so now.  Suffice it to say that it is one of the best dramatic organizations anywhere in the West, and the most fastidious theater goer need have no fear of being disappointed in the least.  They presented "A Celebrated Case" here last week, and it is spoken of as being one of their best plays.  Every cent received by Monday night's performance will be given to Mrs. Shively, and no doubt the home will be crowded with people who can, in their way, show their sympathy for the very needy widow and mother.

Death of Hon. Chas. E. Shiveley
The unexpected death of Hon. Chas. E. Shiveley, the well known member of the Wayne county bar, at his home in Richmond Thursday after an illness of only two days, was indeed a shock to his many friends.  An acute attack of grip, complicated by a heart ailment, was the cause of death.
He was one of Richmonds and one of Wayne County's most prominent citizens, was widely known as an attorney, Knights of Pythias and Republican politician throughout Indiana.
Charles Edward Shiveley was born on a farm in Treble county, Ohio, July 8, 1853. He was the son of Henry and Mary Shiveley. When 8 years of age he moved to Wabash county, Ind., and in 1868 he attended a Presbyterian boarding school at Wabash two years. In 1870 he removed with his parents to near Cambridge City. He graduated from the public schools of this city and taught school several years, meantime fitting himself to enter Hanover college, where he finished his Junior year in 1874.  In 1875 he entered the law office of attorney W. S. Ballinger, after several years preliminary reading, and was admitted to the Wayne county bar, practicing his profession here several years.
On December 15, 1875, he was united in marriage with Miss Lily Ray, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Ray, of this place, and during their five years residence here their two children were born.
In 1880 he was elected prosecuting attorney of this county and then removed from here to Richmond, where he has since resided.
Mr. Shively was re-elected prosecuting attorney in 1882, and since then has devoted himself to the practice of his profession.  In 1894 he was elected state senator from Wayne county, holding that office one term of four years.  During his term in the legislature he was chairman of the steering committee and at the second session of his term in 1897 he was elected president pro tim of the senate. After retiring from the senate, Gov. Mount appointed him a member of the board of managers of the Indiana reformatory, which position he held five years, a part of which time he was president of the board.
In 1875, he became a member of Cambridge lodge, No. 9 of the order of Knights of Pythias, where he loyally continued his membership until his death, as he also did his membership in Company 65, Uniform Rank.  Being ambitious, he rapidly passed through the chairs of the subordinate lodge and was then elected to the grand lodge of Indiana, where he passed the chairs of that body.  In 1886 he was elected grand chancellor of the order.  In 1890 he was elected supreme representative and thereby became a member of the supreme lodge. In 1892 he was elected supreme vice chancellor, and in 1894 at Louisville, Ky., he was elected supreme chancellor of the order and held that position over two years.
He is survived by the widow, a son, Ray K. Shiveley, and a daughter, Mrs. Mary Holmes, wife of Dr. Harry Holmes of Oberlin, Ohio, formerly a member of Earldom faculty. James VanMeter, his brother-in-law, and family of this place are relatives. Mr. Shiveley and family leave many friends here to whom his death comes as a great blow and full of sorrow.
The Wayne county bar association met in special session Saturday morning and passed resolutions fitting to his high standing and esteem.  Knights of Pythias from all parts of the county visited the home in a body Saturday evening.  Funeral services were held at the home Sunday afternoon.  Interment at Earlham.
