Family Tree Firsts Blog: The Mysterious Michael Shively
Posted by Diane
Over at our Family Tree Firsts blog, newbie genealogist Nancy Shively (who you may recall was selected last November to blog about her research experiences) can't stop thinking about Michael, born in 1807, the oldest Shively on her tree. Information-wise, he still remains stubbornly out of reach.
Read about two neighboring Indiana land patents and other clues Nancy has found to the mysterious Michael’s whereabouts.
Also, Nancy mentions a Cincinnati connection that clicked for me—I wonder if a local park called LaBoiteaux Woods is named for the family of Michael’s first wife, Keziah Laboyteaux?
