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.

Christian Schaeufele (Shively) And Wife Rosa Steinbrenner From Germany To Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio

Carolyn M. Kippenberger Shively
A unique genealogy request was recently received. The request was from a present homeowner who lives in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio in the home where Philip Kippenberger once lived and had his business. The home is at 2225 E. Fifth Street in Dayton. Philip Kippenberger was a tailor and had a shop on the lower floor while the family lived on the second floor.  Philip Kippenberger's daughter, Carolyn M. Kippenberger married Alvin Edward Shively. The homeowner would like to locate any old photo's taken on or of the Kippenberger property. The desire is to obtain and frame the pictures and display in her home. From the research it was discovered there are still living descendants of the Alvin Shively and Carolyn Kippenberger union living in the Dayton, Ohio area.

Following is the genealogy research that was found.  Christian Schaeufele was born 20-Apr-1859 in Germany a son of John Schaeufele and Louise Schiese. He immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1884.  Christian Schaeufele married Rosa Steinbrenner on 5-Oct-1886 in Montgomery County, Ohio. Christian died on 10-Sep-1930 and was buried in Woodland Cemetery.  His wife, Rosa Steinbrenner Schaeufele died in 1954.  They had at least the three following children:  1) John F. Schaeufele born 28-Jul-1887 in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio and died 2-Jan-1909, buried Woodland Cemetery 2) Ida Rosa Schaeufele born Feb-1889 and died May-1906 3) Alvin Edward Schaeufele (Shively) born 14-Jan-1892 and died 11-Oct-1974.

Philip Kippenberger was born 3-May-1862 in Germany. He immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1887. Philip Kippenberger married Mary Hock ca. 1890. He died 18-Apr-1944 and was buried in Woodland Cemetery. His wife, Mary Hock Kippenberger was born 17-Oct-1854 in Germany and died 19-Aug-1925 and is buried in Woodland Cemetery.  They had one daughter, Carolyn M. Kippenberger who was born 24-Jun-1897 and died 14-May-1991.  Carolyn's marriage to Alvin Edward Shively may have been her second marriage. Her first husband might have been Walter L. Miller having been married 1st on 6-Sep-1918 in Lucas County, Ohio.

Young Architect Claimed By Death
John Schaeufele, 21, Passes Away After Long Illness
John Schaeufele, 21 years old, a popular and well-known young man of the East End, died Saturday evening at 3 o'clock at the late residence, 50 Samuel street, following an illness of about two years of consumption. He was an architect, having attended school at Cincinnati to perfect his ability in that line, but owing to the fact that he was compelled to leave his work at school on account of illness and come home, he had never made this work his business. He was highly esteemed by those who knew him and his death is mourned in a large circle of friends. He leaves his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Christian Schaeufele and one brother, Alvin Schaeufele. The funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the residence on Samuel street in charge of Rev. Dr. Zarwell and the burial will be made in Woodland cemetery.

Ida Rosa Schäufele
Vereinsamt und verödet wurde das Heim von Herrn Christian Schäufele und Frau an Samuel Straße durch den am 7. Mai erfolgten Tod ihrer geliebten und einzigen Tochter Ida, im Alter von 17 Jahren, 2 Monaten und 23 Tagen.  Sie, welche ein Bild von Lebensfrische und Gesundheit war, erkrankte vor einem Jahr an Lungenkrankheit.  Alles, was nur für ihre Rettung gethan werden konnte, wurde gethan; jedoch vergebens.  Am besagten Tage erlöste sie der Tod von ihrem schmerzlichen und qualvollen Leiden,  welches sie mit staunenswerther Geduld ertrag. 
Sie wurde in Dayton geboren und erzogen. 
An ihrem Sarge trauerten ihre tiefbetrübten Eltern und zwei Brüder John und Alvin, sowie ein großer Kreis von Freunden; denn ihr freundliches und liebenswürdiges Wesen machte sie bei Allen beliebt, die sie kannten.

Translation to English.
Ida Rosa Schaeufele
The office of Mr. Christian Schäufle and wife at Samuel street was deserted by the death of his  beloved and only daughter Ida at the age of 17, 2 months and 23 days. She, who was a picture of freshness and health, fell ill a year ago with lung disease. All that could be done for their salvation was done; But in vain. On that day, she was saved from her painful and painful sufferings, which she bore with patience.
She was born and raised in Dayton. 
On their coffins the grieved parents and two brothers, John and Alvin, mourned as well as a great circle of friends; For her kind and amiable nature made her popular with all who knew her.

  1. Have you tried using Google Translate to try and translate the obituary in German? It works pretty good.
