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.

The city and county has lost a good citizen in the death of Mr. George Barnhardt, which occurred at his home in the First ward, last Tuesday. He was sick but a few days, but his disease baffled medical skill from the first and death soon came. Mr. Barnhardt, very probably, did not have an extensive acquaintance throughout the county as some have, but he was an honest, upright and moral man. For many years he kept the little barber shop on West Market street, and there day, after day, he could be found always pleasant and cheerful. He came to this place from Philadelphia thirty-eight years ago. He was born in Germany, but came to America several years before he came to the West. He leaves a widow (a second wife) and five daughters, four of whom live in Cincinnati and one in Newport, Ky., to mourn his death, but their grief is shared by all who knew him intimately. The funeral takes place to-day (Thursday) at 2 o'clock, from the Lutheran church, of which he has long been a faithful member. Deceased was 67 years and 7 months of age. Death was caused by inflammation of the bowels.
