I'm a descendant of John Shively (Scheible) aprox 1830-1869 of Washington Twp., Dauphin Cty, PAI have been unable to trace his origin, if anyone out there has some possible leads I would appreciate it.John's first marriage was to Eva Regina Frank, they had two known children: Carolina born in 1858 and John Henry born 1857 in Wiconisco, some time between 1858 and 1865 Eva regina is deceased and John remarries Catherine Ann Kuhn to them is born George 1865-1883 and William 1868 - ?.John is deceased in 1869. (St. Johns Lutheran Church, Lykens, PA)His son John Henry Shively marries Mary Ann Withers and they have the following children: Henry 1877- ? moved to Cleveland Ohio,John Franklin 1879- ?, William Ellmore 1882-1944 who married Annie Miller and was Northumberland County, PA Sheriff and Treasurer in the 1920's,George Jarome 1884-1933, Annie Elizabeth 1885-1952 married Andrew W. Wardrop, Ester May 1889-married John Guise,Bertha Jane 1891-1981 married Charles Moore,Theada Milleson 1897-1977 married Charles E. Frye and my father Chester Devon Shively 1899-1952 who married first Clara Kotkosky and then Rita Mary Petro (my mother). The family lived in the Lykens area of Dauphin County until @ 1890 when they moved to Mt. Carmel, Northumberland Cty, PA. About 1905, they moved to Kulpmont, PA.In Kulpmont the family attended the Methodist Church. I've been attempting to get past the 1857 time frame for over ten years - hopefully someone might stumble on a link !
