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.

John B. Shively, Son Of William Thomas Shively And Theresa Hayden

John B. Shively, son of William Thomas Shively and Theresa Hayden,  was born 1-May-1865 in Kentucky and died 2-February-1904 in Texas.  Finding genealogy information is difficult for John because he died at age 39.

Located in the Texas marriage records it is found that J. B. Shively married W. C. Fullington on 29-April-1896 in Grayson County, Texas.   Located in The Dallas Morning News, Saturday, May 2, 1896, Page 3, Column 4 is the following entry:
Shively-Fullington -- Denison, Tex., April 30--John B. Shively of Jonesboro, Ark., was married to Miss Clyde Fullington at 8:30 last night.

Additional information on John B. Shively is found in the biography of his father, William Shively, in The History of Pottawattamie County, Iowa From The Earliest Times To 1907, S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, IL, 1907:
John B. Shively, born in Taylor county, Kentucky, May 1, 1865, acquired a public school education and married Clyde Fullington at Denison, Texas.  He died February 2, 1904, and his wife in 1905, leaving two children, Gladys and Brent.  John B. Shively in his active business career was a conductor and he belonged to the Ancient Order of United Workmen and Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, while his wife was connected with the auxiliary of the latter order.

A newspaper obituary was found for John B. Shively.  The article has the middle initial incorrect and this obituary lists him as John C Shively.  Located in The San Antonio Daily Express, Wednesday Morning, February 22, 1905, Page 5, Column 2 is:

John C Shively, aged 39 years, died Tuesday morning at his home, 101 Denver Boulevard, South Heights, of pulmonary trouble.  Deceased was a native of Kentucky and came here for his health six months ago from Waco.  He was a railroad brakeman by occupation and belonged to the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and the Ancient Order of United Workmen.  Surviving him are his wife, one son and one daughter, also his parents who reside in O'Neill, Neb., and five brothers and three sisters.  Two of his sisters are now here, Mrs. S. A. Anderson and Mrs. F. G. Loper,, both of Council Bluffs, Iowa.  The funeral will take place Tuesday morning from his late home under the auspices of the above orders, Rev. Mr. Killian officiating.

Gladys and Brent Shively are listed with their uncle and aunt, Frederick Loper and Bertha Shively Loper, on the 1910 Pottawattamie County, Iowa census.  Gladys and Brent are also found in the 1915 Pottawattamie County, Iowa state census records.

  1. Larry, when I went to put a flag on Capt William Thomas Shively grave. I noticed a Brent Shively headstone. I might have to go back and see if this is John B. Shively son.
