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.

Henry Albert Shively Who Lived In Trumbull County, Ohio

Melody By H. A. Shively
The sheet music for the song Wild Roses Blossom On The Hillside  has words by O. E. Henry and melody by H. A. Shively.  The song was published by H. A. Shively in Warren, Ohio.
O. E. Henry is probably Orrin E Henry who is listed in the Trumbull County, Ohio census record as being a musician.  H. A. Shively was not as easy to locate.  From research it is believed that H. A. Shively was Henry Albert Shively, son Abraham Shively and Hannah Flick.  He is listed in 1860 and 1870 in Trumbull County, Ohio in his parents household and is listed as Henry A Shively.  In 1880 he is listed in his parents household as Albert Shively.  In 1900 he is living with his mother and is listed as Albert H.  In 1910 he is living with his brother and family and is listed as H. A. Shively.  
It is interesting that none of the census records for H. A. Shively list an occupation for him.  On the 1880 census living in the household of Abraham and Susan Shively are children Albert age 35, Louis (daughter) age 33 and son William age 26.  William (Solomon W. Shively)  is listed as a dealer in music.  
      Thanks go the staff at the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, Local History and Genealogy Center who located the following newspaper obituary in the Warren Daily Tribune, Friday, January 5, 1917, Page 5, Column 4:
Funeral services for the late H. A. Shiveley will be held at the home of his brother, W. S. Shiveley, on Cherry street, Saturday morning at 10:30.  The remains will be taken to Duck Creek fro burial.  Mr. Shiveley passed away Wednesday at the age of 73 years.  He held an extensive acquaintance in this part of the county where he had resided for many years.
      The staff at the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library also found the following related item in the Warren Daily Tribune, Tuesday, January 16, 1917, Page 5, Column 4:
Mr. and Mrs. B. P. Baldwin and Mr. and Mrs. Shurrell Orr attended the funeral of Mrs. Baldwin's brother, Mr. Shively, in Warren, Saturday and on Sunday attend the funeral of a son of Mr. and Mrs. Sherrad Foulk.
        The Ohio death certificate for Henry Albert Shively lists a birth date of Sept. 26, 1843 and death date of January 3, 1917.  He is listed as being retired.  His parents are listed as Abram Shively and Susan Flick.  The person giving the information for the death certificate was his brother, Solomon Shively.
