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.

Died From Lockjaw
Yesterday afternoon, Earl, the sixteen-year-old son of Henry Shively, pressman at the Staats Zeitung, who lives at No. 87 Zane street, died of lockjaw.  About two weeks ago he accidentally ran a rusty nail in his foot.  The matter was not given the proper medical attention at the time and in a short time afterward the wound healed up sufficiently to permit the boy to go out and walk around.  There was no thought that the matter would terminate seriously, but several days ago he was taken very ill and physician sent for.  He grew worse, however, until a few days ago his jaws became perfectly locked and rigid.  Not a particle of food could be passed through his mouth and death came as a relief to his sufferings.
