Catherine Shively, Mercer Co, PA, 1863

  of 1158

Catherine Shively purchased land in her name in Hickory Twp, Mercer Co, PA in 1863. She had been born Catherina Sorg 10 May 1823 in Waldmar, Germany. She immigrated to the US in 1847 and married Christian Scheible on 17 Aug 1851. They had 4 children as follows: Roszina born 1853 in Philadelphia, Friedrich born 1855 in Philadelphia, Ema born 1858, and John born 1860. Both Ema and John died in November of 1860 possibly of diptheria. Christian also seems to have disappeared about this time. Catherine died 5 Jun 1906. Roszina (Rosanna) was my great-grandmother. I would like to be able to determine whatever happened to Christian and his son, Friedrich (Frederick). Christian was born 12 Jul 1819 in Durrwenz-Muhlacker, Germany. I know Christian had at least 2 brothers, Wilhelm (possibly in Mobile, AL) and Friedrich. Does anyone out there recognize this Shively family?
