For the first time while searching the census records it has been discovered that there is a record of one of the Shively lines having a documented Native American lineage. The following record is found on the 1900 Idaho census record in Nez Perce County and recorded on the Nez Perce Reservation with a date of 4-June-1900:
Head of Household Date of Birth Age

From the 1910 census record for Yellowstone County, Montana and Rosebud County, Montana there is a duplicate record for Frank S. Shively. The Crow Reservation is found in both counties hence the reason for duplicate entres. The Rosebud County entry was easier to transcribe so this source is cited below:

The 1910 census record shows that Frank S Shively and Lucy had been married for seven years. They had four children and all four children are living in 1910. Attempts were made to find more information on this wife and children but at this time no other genealogy information could be found.
The Montana Crow Land Patents are a source of information:
