I would like to share some of the information that I have which might help you with the proof you are looking for regarding Christian Shively and Michael Shively. First we must give credit to the individuals who have done this research for us. I hope I am giving the correct credit but I believe that Ruth Wandel was the Shively researcher that located the Pauline Bowman papers from the DAR Library. Margaret Smith has been very instrumental also in helping with this information.
In Frederick Co. VA Book 2, Page 14, is a land grant from John and Daniel Kennedy to Michael Shively, 245 acres, 11-Oct-1766
In Berkeley Co. VA Book 4, Pages 453-455, is a land grant in which Michael and "Hannah", his wife, sells 100 acres of the above 245 acres to Christian Shively, 100 acres, 20-21 March 1778
In Berkeley Co. VA Book 5, Page 23-24, land grant in which Michael and "Christinia", his wife, sells the remaining 145 acres of the original 245 acres to Joseph Mitchell, 2-May-1778
On 15-Oct-1778, Christian Shively and Mary, his wife, sell their 100 acres to Joseph Mitchell, Berkeley Co. VA Book 5, Pages 584-585
In Berkeley Co. VA Book 5, Pages 230-231 George Myer sells to Christian Shively 100 acres, 17-March-1779
**********Here is the information used to prove the relation: Berkeley Co. VA Book 5, Pages 694-696 Christian Shively and "Mary" his wife sell the 100 acres to James Russell. At this time Mary did not sign the deed. On 13 of March 5th yr of VA Commonwealth, Berkeley Co, VA to Monongahala Co. VA requesting Christian Shively's wife, Mary, to privily examined regarding Indenture 15-Aug-1781 (should be 1781) to James Russell. Certificate attesting to this is dates 14-May-1781; recorded in Berkeley Co. VA 19-Feb-1782. Book 5, Page 696.
On 19 of August 11th year of VA Commonwealth, Berkeley Co. VA to JEFFERSON COUNTY, KY re. Christian Shively's wife, Mary, and 1778 Indenture to Joseph Mitchell Book 7, Pages 281-282. Acknowledgement sent to Berkeley County
10-Jan-1787 and recorded 19-June-1787.
I am descended from the Green-Taylor-Marion-Washington Counties, KY Shively's. Our first ancestor in KY was a John Shively who we also have a deed regarding land in Monongahelia Co., VA (now W.VA)of a MICHAEL SHIVELY. Please see my query on this Shively page. I have tried for years to connect my line to the Louisville Shively's who we now have pretty good proof came from a Michael Shively line. Of the early Louisville Christian, Henry, and Jacob Shively there has been a lot of work done on Christian and Henry. Poor old Jacob Shively is still somewhat of a mystery. Anyway, I hope the above information guides you in the direction to help prove what you were resarching.
