If I may, I would like to correct the place of Ruth's death. If we are speaking of the same Ruth Shivley, it would be Joplin, Missouri. Ben Shivley lived in St.Charles Missouri. My Grandfather Earl Shivley ( son of Lewis Shivley ) had 3 brothers, Ben, Joseph of Joplin, Missouri, and Cecil of Webb City Missouri; also a sister, Marie Boyd of Peoria, Illinois. Earl had 3 children that I am aware of, "Bud", Mary Hutchinson, and my father, William Robert. William was born and died in Joplin Missouri and had four children, Anita, Charles, LouElla, and myself, George. Of the four of us, only my brother Charles and I survive.
