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.

Kent Man Dies At Washington
Kent, O., February 14 --  Dr. J. W. Shively, of Kent, died in Washington, D.C., today.  He was connected with the Pension Department.   Dr. Shively was a director of the Kent National Bank and was a well-known gentleman.  The remains will be brought here for burial Tuesday.

Additional information regarding J. W. Shively was located in The Cleveland Leader, Thursday Morning, November 23, 1876, Page 3, Column 2:
Dr. J. W. Shively, who for the past ten years has been a resident of this place and who has enjoyed a very extensive practice, is about to open an office in Harkness Block, corner of Euclid and Wilson avenue, Cleveland, and locate permanently in that city.  The doctor's many friends will regret to learn of this move, and yet all will join with us in hoping that he will soon realize a remunerative practice in his new and broader field of labor. --Kent Bulletin
