The Shivers family of Arkansas held various roles depending on the location and associated families that acknowledged them. Roderick JP Shivers was listed as a "Slave Regulator" and with his "Shelby County Tn career as the Sheriff and his brothers Shadrick W Shivers and John W Shivers as constables all of them are listed in and around Point Township in Woodruff County as early as 1836-1848-1852 when in 1851 Roderick's wife died and then Roderick died in 1852. The following scenario is a clue as to what decimated the Shivers family because lawsuits, accounts of estate theft and other various issues leading up to the civilwar can be seen as affecting this family.
