FRANK SHIVELY – Among the generous, whole souled, public spirited citizens of Chesterville and its vicinity must assuredly be numbered Frank Shively, who in the useful capacity of a skilled blacksmith has contributed his share to the prosperity and progress of the community in which he is situated. He was born November 30, 1852, near Johnsonsville, Ohio and is the son of Jacob and Adaline (Lamb) Shively, the former a native of Franklin county, and the latter of Ohio. The subject is one of a family of five children, the other members being John, who died in infancy; Martha; and two half brothers, Ben and Lew.
In the year 1889 Mr. Shively was united in marriage to Miss Mary B. McCausland, a daughter of John and Henrietta (Smith) McCausland, of Chesterville. The McCausland family consisted of nine children, three of whom were sons and six daughters, following being an enumeration: David L., who died in infancy; B Frank; Arthur V; Mary B; Izola; Gladys; Edith; Wastella; Anna K. In youth Frank and Arthur McCausland were employed as clerks, and they now reside in Harney county, Oregon, where they have homesteaded three hundred and twenty acres of land. Anna and Gladys became trained nurses, Marion being the scene of their activity. The latter married Arthur Seffner and her home is in Marion.
Mr. Shively was reared in this vicinity and received his education in the schools of Richland county. At an early age he embarked in the blacksmithing business, and when marriage had placed upon his shoulders new responsibilities he continued in the same field and chose for his permanent location Chesterville, in whose many-sided life he has ever since taken an active and useful part. His geniality and kindliness have served to make him popular here and his thrift and industry have crowned his labors with prosperity.
Mr. and Mrs. Shively share their pleasant and hospitable home with one daughter, Edith Franceine, now aged seventeen years. She is one of the admirable young women of the place, who with her father and mother enjoys the goodwill of their many friends and neighbors.
In his political affiliation Mr. Shively gives heart and hand to the policies and principles of the Democratic party, which since his earliest voting days he has supported. He is interested in all measures likely to result in benefit to the many and can ever be depended upon to give his support to the same.
Frank Shively was born on 30-Nov-1852 in Richland County, OH and died on 1-Nov-1928. He was buried in the Chesterville Cemetery. Mary B (Brittie) McCausland Shively was born Apr-1866 and died on 22-Apr-1924. They were married on 1-Nov-1888 in Morrow County, OH (per Morrow County, OH marriage records). Their daughter, Edith F. was born in Dec-1893. Frank and wife are listed on the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census records in Chesterville, Morrow County, OH.
