SHRIVER posted by William Shriver on Tuesday, November 7, 2000

I am looking for decendants of Robert Benton Shriver. He lived in Jefferson county in 1910 (according to the census). Robert Benton Shriver was born in 1861 in Pennsylvania; he was the son of Andrew Jackson Shriver and Denetna Linsenbigler. His wife was Laura (probably born in 1868). Among his children were Elliot Shriver (born 1885), Frank Shriver (born 1896), Hazel Shriver (born 1900, Marcella Shriver (born 1902), Naoma Shriver (born 1906), and Theodore Shriver (born 1907). There were probably more children, but this was all that were living at home in 1910. Robert Benton Shriver was my grandfather's brother (John Andrew Shriver). I would like to make contact with the decendants of Robert Benton Shriver to exchange information.
