Hi John, Just saw you post of 8-17-99 and wonder if your offer still holds up?It was about those two ill- fated boats containing the Shively, Hardin, Harding, Robinson, Payne and other families on their journey to Ky. I have read the book and parts of it made my hair stand straight up! Like you I have been unable to connect to the Jacob Shively. I know he was killed by the Indians and left no decendants,but I would love to know where he fit in. I have traced my family back to Thomas Harding and the Payne's so natually I am very interested in the other families. I also descend from Jacob Shively and Sophia Davis who married in Green Co.,KY. I have a small amount of info. on Jacob Shively's family and would be glad to share. Look forward to hearing from you or any- one that can help me.Thanks!
