Re: Christian Shively Jefferson County Ky

In Reply to: Re: Christian Shively Jefferson County Ky by Walter Burke Shively of 1158

I believe that Louisville had a newspaper by 1826, the year Christian Shively died. There may have been an obituary that would list his place of birth, etc. The library has old newapapers on microfilm. Without knowing when in 1826 he died, it would be time consuming to search for the obituary. If it could be found, it might give his place of birth. Parkview Methodist Church, 2020 Garrs Lane, Louisville, KY 40216 is Jefferson County's oldest continuous Methodist congregation. In 1816, Christian Shively donated land for a church that has evolved into Parkview. The church seems to believe the Redstone, PA story.
