Shively Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks so much for writing, Paul. Accordingto what I have found, Jacob and Rebecca moved to Huntington Co. in 1839 or even possibly 1840. My Joseph was born there on 7/04/1840. Rebecca died on 6/15/1841. Everything says they haad a daughter Mariah born in 1842. I rather think that if Rebecca was Mariah's mother, Mariah wasw born in 1841, probably at the time of her mother's death.
Jacob married a woman named Rebecca Herrin in either 1843 or 1845. They had 3 sons, George, Henry and Jacob. They all moved to WellsCo. in 1849 and are shown there as a family on the 1850 Census.
I am quite busy today getting ready for company on the 4th. Assoon as I have time I will type up a complete list of all the kids and anything else that might be helpful.
Again,I really appreciate hearing from you.
