Shively Family Genealogy Forum
Here's what I have on your Leona. She was born in Henry Co, IN in 1861 and died December 25, 1911, buried in New Castle, not sure what cemetery. She married James Wilson on July 23, 1881. She had 4 sisters, Dora born Oct 16, 1866; Ida M., born 1864; Laura born December 1 1868; and Olive - no birth date but I have that she is buried in Marion Co., In. Leona's parents were Peter Shively and Martha Marsh. Peter was born 1834 in Mt. Pleasant, Hamilton Co., IN and died May 12, 1893 in Wells Co., IN. He married Martha Ann on January 14, 1861 in Hamilton Co., OH. She was born January 29 1841 and died May 27, 1870 in Henry Co. He then married Susanna Shields Stretch in 1871. Peter is buried in Grove Cemetery - east of Poneto, IN and martha Ann is buried in Batson Cemetery, Henry Co., IN. I suspect Martha Ann was buried there because that's where her parents are buried, Michael Shively, Jr. and Kezia LaBoyteaux. Let me know if you'd like more - I can go back 3 more generations. Have fun!! "Cousin" Debby
