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.

Loren Stanton Shively And Katherine Medley In Cape Girardeau County, Missouri

Missouri Death Certificate
Loren Stanton Shively was born 29-July-1881 in Edwardsport, Knox County, IN and died 16-April-1956 in Cape Girardeau County, MO. He was the son of Benjamin Shively and Rebecca Hoover.  Loren Stanton (L. S.) Shively was a conductor for the Frisco Railroad. He was married to Katherine Medley.

News articles were extracted from Missouri newspapers as follows:
The Weekly Tribune, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Friday, June 25, 1916, Page 3, Column 6: Mrs. Loren Shively of St. Louis   arrived in this city yesterday, where she will spend several days visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Medley, and other relatives and friends.

The Hayti Herald, Hayti, Missouri, November 4, 1915, Page 6, Column 3:
Mrs. L. S. Shively of St. Louis has been visiting in this city for the past several days. Mr. and Mrs. Shively were citizens of this city several years ago, and now Mr. Shively has a run out of this city and they will move again to Hayti.  We welcome them as citizens again.

The Hayti Herald, Hayti, Missouri, April 24, 1919, Page 6, Column 6:
The Caruthersville postmaster, Mrs. Gertrude McElvain, paid the Hayti postmaster, Mrs. C. S. York, a social call Wednesday afternoon.  Mrs. McElvain came over with her cousin, Mrs. L. S. Shively of this place who had gone over to the river city in her car.  Mrs. McElvain is the widow of the late Will McElvain, deceased, and has made and is making the best postmaster Caruthersville has had in a long time, according to the way the postmaster here speaks about her service, and we are sure she speaks with understanding since much of the financial business of this office is now transacted through the Caruthersville office, that being the Central Accounting Office of Pemiscot county, a new innovation introduced by the Burleson regimen, among the other good, bad and indifferent changes that have been made.

The Hayti Herald, Hayti, Missouri, July 10, 1919, Page 6, Column 4:
Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Shively and son, Edward, will leave tomorrow morning for Bicknell, Ind., making the trip in their automobile.  Mr. Shively will remain there only a short time, it being necessary for him to return to his Cape-Poplar Bluff run as conductor for the Frisco.  Mrs. Shively and son will remain there, later driving through northern Indiana, Michigan, and through the territory surrounding the Great Lakes.

The Hayti Herald, Hayti, Missouri, September 11, 1919, Page 5, Column 5:
Mrs. L. S. Shively and son, Edward, who have spent the last seven or eight weeks along the shores of the Great Lakes and visiting relatives and friends in Michigan and Indiana, returned home Sunday.  She reports having an excellent summer vacation.  She made the trip by automobile.
