Documents from Indiana

I found your information while searching for Mariah Angeline Gilman, 
sister of Martha Ann Gilman, my gg grandmother. When I saw that I had 
reached a page of Shivers', I did a little more looking. 
Richard Melville Shivers was a second marriage for my g grandmother, 
Annie Elizabeth Burch. They had no children, and I don't know if this 
was a second marriage for RM Shivers. Annie Burch was the daughter in 
law of Martha Ann Gilman. Her first husband, Martin Van Buren Burch 
died of diabetes. 

RM "Mel" Shivers was born January 26, 1868 in Indiana and 
died February 4, 1935 in Elk Township, Cloud County, Kansas. He is buried 
in the Mount Hope Cemetary, Clyde, Kansas.

AE Beal (Burch)(Shivers) was born December 8, 1868 
in Uniontown, Fayetty County, Pennsylvania 
and died July 17, 1947 in Concordia, Clound County, Kansas. 
She is buried in the Mount Hope Cemetary, Clyde, Kansas - 
right between her first husband MVB Burch and her second husband, 
RM Shivers. RM Shivers was my Dad's 'Grandpa' and although Dad was 
quite young when Mel died, he does remember Mel making rope and 
doing other chores around the farm.

I fear I do not have much information for you, but I certainly enjoyed 
your site. You have done a lot of work and I am quite jealous that you 
are able to find out so much! My Burch family have been quite elusive, 
but I will keep trying!
