Squires great grandson is projected to be my 4th cousin. Most likely our relationship is through the Lively line.

This means he is most certainly descended [[Lively-304|Mark Bethell Lively]].

I just cant find Squire's parents

Hard one to track. Found a Civil War Draft Registration Record for him in Grayson Kentucky. There is a possibility that his father was James Wesley Lively and mother Harriet Turner. These two show up in the 1850 census for Campbellsville, Taylor County Kentucky, but Squire is not there. He may have been married and gone by then.

Squire may have been a nick name.  Often the Justice of the Peace in the area was called "Squire".  My own great grand father was.  

There are several books written about the Lively Family.  I'm a descendant of one too.  There is the main one Livelys of America and two supplemental volumes of Corrections and Additions.  You may want to locate and use it as a Guide, as I have found errors, which naturally happened for the time period it was written, early 1980s.
