Daniel Shively who lives in the state of California contacted some of the Shively researchers seeking to find other Shively's interested in the family history of Daniel Shively who was the son of Peter Shively. If you descend from this Shively line and are interested in sharing information with Daniel please leave a comment on this blog.
Located on the 1850 Tuscarawas County, Ohio census record is the family of Peter Shively in Sandy Township. Listed in the household are Peter Shively age 39, wife Sarah, daughter Elizabeth age 21, son William age 19, daughter Margarett A age 18, daughter Mary J age 14, son Daniel age 12 and son Peter age 9. By 1860 Peter and family have moved to Ionia County, Michigan where they are located on the census record. The death certificate for son Daniel Shively lists his parents as Peter Shively and Sarah Miller. There is a marriage certificate in Tuscarawas County for Peter Shevely and Sarah Foster dated 10-April-1828. It would be interesting if someone could comment about these marriage records. Is it possible these early Tuscarawas marriage records were recopied at a later date? The reason is that the handwriting appears to be the style of early 1900's rather than the style of writing from the early 1800's. If this occurred it might be possible that in transcribing Sarah's last name was recorded incorrectly. The information on the death certificate was a William Shively who it is believed was Daniel Shively's son. One would think that he would know the name of his grandmother Sarah Shively.
From the Ohio death certificate Daniel Shively is recorded born 16-Dec-1838. He died 4-June-1913 in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. His wife was Phoebe Ann. Daniel and Phoebe Ann are listed on the 1880 Ionia County, Michigan census with son William age 9. Another son of Daniel and Phoebe was Frank Shively born 17-Oct-1882 in Ionia County, Michigan and died 28-Sep-1941 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Frank married Elizabeth (Bessie) Murphy who was born 29-Nov-1883 in Rockford, Winnebago County, IL died 7-Dec-1963 in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio.
Several newspaper articles were located regarding the family of Frank Shively and Bessie Murphy Shively. Located in The Rockford Daily Register-Gazette, Thursday, June 12, 1913, Page 1, Column 7:
Baby Dies On Day Of Grandfather’s Burial
Frank Shively Loses His Father And Daughter By Death At Home In Toledo, O.
Friends of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Shively, of Toledo, O., formerly of Rockford, have been informed of the death of their little daughter Jane, which occurred last Saturday. Mr. Shively’s father died a week ago Wednesday, and his funeral was held on the day the grandchild passed away. The baby, who was twenty months old, was buried on Monday.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Shively moved to Toledo from Rockford about a year ago.
Rockford Republic, Tuesday, Evening, October 20, 1903, Page 5, Column 2:

Will Wed Tonight
Miss Bessie Murphy and Mr. Frank Shively will wed this evening. Mr. Shively is connected with Louck’s restaurant and Miss Murphy is a well known young lady who has many friends.
Rockford Republic, Thursday Evening, January 28, 1904, Page 7, Column 3:
Miss Bessie Murphy and Frank Shively were married last evening at St. Mary’s parsonage, the ceremony being performed at 8 o’clock by Rev. Fr. McMahon. After the wedding service the bridal couple were tendered a reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Thro. Mr. and Mrs. Shively will be at home at Lansing, Mich., next month.
It would be interesting to know if the Daniel Shively age 83 and wife Sarah Shively age 82 and James Shively age 41 who are listed on the 1850 Tuscarawas County, Ohio census in the household of John J. Wolf are related to Peter Shively. Is it possible they are the parents of Peter Shively? It appears that by 1860 Daniel Shively has passed away because James Shively and Sarah are located on the 1860 Jefferson County, Ohio census record. Is it possible this Shively line descends from Daniel Shively who came to America in 1749? This immigrant Daniel Shively was born 26-May-1709 in Waldenberg(Switzerland) and died 1763 in Frederick County, VA. It is known that this Daniel had a son Daniel Shively baptized 29-Jan-1730 who died in Jefferson County, OH in 1808. Is it possible the Daniel Shively in 1850 in Tuscarawas County(the one who was 83) was the son of the Daniel Shively who was baptized 1730?
