I am looking for "any" info about William (Johnson) Chew, son of Joseph and Grace (Deshon). My English ancestry, which is in the John Chew/Sarah Bond line, skewed to a Native American blood when William Johnson, Joseph and Grace's son, married Margaret Mt. Pleasant; who was half Tuscarora or Oneida Indian. William and Margaret had a son named William, who became a Sachem Chief, Turtle Clan. William is my Great-Great Grandfather. My father, who is recently deceased, was also a Tuscarora chief. Anyway, I know quite a bit about my English line, but it gets a little fuzzy after Joseph and Grace (Deshon) Chew. I know that Joseph was the son of Col. Thomas Chew and Martha Taylor. Which Martha was the Great Aunt of President James Madison and Great Grand Aunt of President Zachary Taylor. I also have done a lot of research about Thomas Chew's land dealings in Virgina and that he co-owned thousands of acres of Montpelier with the Madisons and eventually became the sole estate of James and Dolly Madison. Thomas Chew was also was a founding father of Orange County Virginia, becoming Sheriff there c. 1740s. Being a distant cousin of President Madison is pretty awesome but I am at a standstill as far as good info when William Chew Married Margaret Mt. Pleasant. Can anyone help? An additional note, I am still trying to plan a Chew reunion in Jamestown. I apologize that I have been slow in replying to the many who have expressed an interest in going and/or helping to organize it. I have had 4 major back surgeries in the last 3 years, so it has slowed me up a little. I will be making future announcements and emailing those who have written me. If anyone else is interested in a "Chew Reunion" to be held in Jamestown please email at the listed email address. God bless.----- Wayne Eric Chew
