A Shively researcher would like help. The request is to find the parents of Jacob W. Shively born 1825 in Pennsylvania. He was married to Mary Shellato who was born ca 1826. The Pennsylvania death certificates for some of her children have her last name listed as Schelto, Shelato and Scaltabaugh. The last name has also been found as Shellito. Jacob and Mary are located on the 1850 Huntingdon County, PA, 1860 Huntingdon County, PA and 1870 Huntingdon County, PA census records. They are located on the 1880 Tarrant County, Texas census. No further information could be found on Jacob and Mary after this record. If anyone knows where Jacob and Mary were after 1880 or can share who the parents of Jacob W. Shively are the information will be appreciated.
Edward Eugene Shively, son of Jacob and Mary, was the subject of this blog on August 3, 2012. Samuel Davis Shively, son of Jacob and Mary, was the subject of this blog on December 6, 2013.

By 1900 the Shively children listed on the 1880 Texas census have returned to Pennsylvania. Per the records Edward Shively had a daughter born in 1888 in Blair County, PA. Paulina (Nina) Shively is located on the 1900 and 1910 Blair County, PA. Cassius E. "Cash" Shively is found on the 1900 Clearfield County, PA and 1910 Clearfield County, PA census record living with his sister, Clara Shively Smyers. He is still in Clearfield County in 1920.
There is a J W Shively listed on the 1886 Gregg County, Texas tax list. It is not suggested that this J W Shively is Jacob W Shively. No further information was found on this J W Shively.
