Credits and Disclaimer:   My hat is off to the Rev. Samuel S. Shriver who undertook this history in 1888, and to Robert Campbell Shriver who revised and updated it in 1976.  This project to digitize the 1888 version, begun in March, 2002 and completed in March 2003, involved scanning and recognizing (using OmniPage Pro v. 10.0) over 160 pages of 120-year-old text.  While I have fixed all of the scanning errors I have found, I have inevitably missed some.  If you find errors and let me know, I will be happy to make the corrections.  Other Shriver history information is also welcome.
