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.

Francis (Frank) Marion Shively, Son Of Joseph A. And Margaret Shively, From Wayne County, Ohio

The following news article was extracted from The Cincinnati Post, Saturday, November 20, 1897, Page 1, Column 5:
Was M. F. Shively's Departure.
He Went From Cincinnati To Cleveland.
But Again Disappears.
Trunks Claimed By Him And His Wife Were Attached.
Objections To Marriage
That Was Contracted Here, Which Came From Wooster, Ohio
A strange story has developed in the disappearance of Marion F. Shively, a foreman in the Globe Fixture Company's Factory.
On July 20 Shively married Miss Mary Conahan, of 1216 West Eighth Street, and took up rooms at 612 West Seventh Street, where he formerly roomed.  The marriage created a sensation among some people, who said that there were objections to the wedding from Wooster, O., Shively's former home.  The landlady heard of the talk and ordered Shively out.
Threats From Wooster.
Shively moved to 620 Mound Street.  While at this place, it is stated, Shively was threatened from Wooster.
Saturday night, Sept. 4, Shively drew his pay at the Globe office.  He has not returned.  The landlady stated that he had left the city with his wife.
Shively was employed  by the Globe Company for a year and a half, was a valuable mechanic and foreman and received a big salary.  His sudden disappearance, coupled with rumors, caused a surprise in the workshops.
Conahan, Shively's father-in-law, stated Saturday that Shively was continually worried by someone at Wooster.  He heard of Shively again as living at 40 North Perry Street, Cleveland, O.
Tried To Leave Cleveland.
(Post Special Service)  Cleveland, O., Nov. 20. -- Marion F. Shively, who is said to be the principal in a strange story at Cincinnati and who is living with his wife at 40 North Perry Street here in furnished rooms, attempted to leave Saturday morning, but was detained by the landlady.  Shively seemed to be excited and refused to make any statement.  The couple owed rent.  Their trunks and baggage were held.  They have not been seen since.

Francis (Frank) Marion Shively was the son of Joseph A. and Margaret Shively. He was born ca. 1861.  Joseph and Margaret were located on the 1870 and 1880 Wayne County, Ohio census records.  Children born to Joseph and Margaret include:  Joseph A. born 1858, Edward born 1860, Francis M born 1861, Allie born 1866, Louella born 1868, Lafayette born 1870, William E born 1872, Everett E born 1873, and Florence A born 1877.

The marriage of Marion F. Shively is recorded in the Hamilton County, Ohio marriage records.  Recorded is the marriage of Marion F. Shively to Margaret M. Conhan on 20-July-1897 by Roman Catholic Priest F A. Winsey.  The marriage is recorded as Marriage 836C from marriage Volume 134, Page 418.  

Part of the threats that troubled Marion F. Shively might be explained from a legal document found in the Wayne County, Ohio records.  The document concerns a matter between the guardian of Margaret Shively, who is listed as an imbecile, and her heirs.  In the document it mentions "plaintiff says that the whereabouts of said Frank M. Shively have not been known for some years.  That he left his wife and children about years ago, and it is not known whether his is alive or not.  That Emily Shively was his wife, and the following children Ella Shively who is of age, Edwin Shively, Joseph Shively and Susanne Shively minors over the age of 14 years  and Glenn Shively, Pearl Shively and Earl Shively, Eva Shively minors under the age of 12 years....

Additional information on the family of Francis and Emily Shively was located by researching Emily Shively.  She was the daughter of John Crites and can be found on the 1880 Wayne County, OH census with her father John Crites, 1900 Cuyahoga County, OH census with her children and father, 1910 Ashtabula County, OH census, and 1920 Cuyahoga County, OH census with her married daughter Pearl Maus.   Emily Crites Shively died on 7-Aug-1925 and is buried in the Lake View Cemetery, 12316 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, OH.

Information from the 1900 census lists the following birth dates for the children of Francis M. Shively and Emily:   Ella born July 1883, Edwin born November 1885, Joseph born December 1887, Glenn born June 1892, twins Earl and Pearl born November 1894,  and Eva born June 1896.  No information could be located on daughter, Susanne.
