In Reply to: Joseph Shively-Union County, Pa by Fran Hendrie of 1158

If you have not seen the History of Sandusky County, Ohio, 1882, you might look on pages 768 and 769. There is about one column's worth of information on the Overmyer or Obermoyer family and then a little information on Joseph Shively.
For the Shively researchers the information found on page 769 is: Joseph Shively, an old settler and a worthy citizen, departed this life in the latter part of the summer of 1881. He was born in Union County, PA in 1812 and come to Sandusky County and settled in this township (Washington) in 1834. The following year he was united in marriage to Susanna Obermoyer, daughter of George Obermoyer. They reared a family of ten children, viz: Sarah (Engler) and Elizabeth (Kramb), Washington township; Henry, Sandusky; John, Michigan; George A, Sandusky; Solomon, Washinton; Franklin, Michigan; William H, Texas; James A and Lewis W, Washington. Mr. Shively was by trade a wagon-maker."
Hope this information helps.
Larry Shively
