I am looking for information for your John Shively and Mary.I wanted to share a little more information about the son David Shively who married Amy Bell.It seems some of their children came to Missouri.In the Clinton and Caldwell Counties, Missouri, Clinton County by Carrie Polk Johnston and Caldwell County by W.H.S. McGlumphy, Illustrated, Historical Publishing Company, 1923, Topeka-Indianopolois, page 680-681 is the following:
George Washington Shively, well-known farmer and stockman of New York Township, was born Nov. 26, 1861, in Vinton County, Ohio, the son of David and Amy (Bell) Shively.
David Shively was a native of Marion County, Ohio, and moved to Vinton County, Ohio, when he was a young man, where he became a successful farmer and stockman.Mr. Shively improved his farm of 123 and 1/2 acres of land and became a well-known breeder of high-grade stock.During the Civil War he enlisted in the Union army as a corporal under Capt. Oliver Bell, and served for 100 days.Mr. Shively was a Republican and a member of the Methodist Church.He died in January, 1883, and his wife also died during the same year.They are buried in Locust Grove Cemetery, Vinton County, Ohio.Mr. and Mrs. Shively were the parents of seven children, as follows:John, deceased; Lois, married Hayman Henry, now deceased, and she lives at Hamilton, MO.; James M., farmer, Idaho; Catherine, married W. J. Kline, a farmer, now deceased; Eunice, the wife of E. E. Oldfield, farmer, Hamilton; George W., the subject of this sketch; and Anna, the wife of Sheridan Oldfield, farmer, Oklahoma.
George Washington Shively was reared on his father's farm, in Ohio, and received his education in the district schools.When he was a young man he moved to Missouri and settled in Caldwell County, engaging in the building and contracting business, which he followed for 20 years.Mr. Shively then purchased a farm in New York Township, which he now operates successfully.The Shively farm contains 42 1/4 acres of well improved land, and Mr. Shively specializes in the breeding of registered Shorthorn cattle, Poland-China hogs and mules.He also operates 80 acres which he rents.His farm is modern and contains good buildings.
In December, 1884, Mr. Shively married Hattie J. Finley, a native of Knox County, Illinois, and to this union one child was born, Grace Lois, now the wife of Grover Cleveland Appleman, farmer and stockman, Gomer Township.Mr. Shively's first wife died April 7, 1888, and is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Breckenridge (MO).Mr. Shively later married Dora Deliliah Guffey, also deceased.On Nov. 17, 1905, he was married to Myrtle Florence Appleman, a native of Vinton County, Ohio, and the daughter of J.H. and Lydia (Kline) Appleman, both natives of Ohio, and the parents of the following children:Mrs. Shively, Ica and Iva, twins; Ica is the wife of John Cramer, and Iva the wife of William Rassmussem; Grover Cleveland, farmer and stockman, Caldwell County.Mr. Appleman was a leading farmer and stockman of Caldwell County for many years.He died Aug. 29, 1921 and his wife died Nov. 16, 1921.To George W. and Myrtle Florence (Appleman) Shively two children have been born, as follows: T.B., born Aug. 9, 1907, died July 23, 1910; and Eldon Glenwood, born Dec. 17, 1911, at home.
