Richard,it is nice to see some activity on this Forum. I have a Joseph Chew who is my GGG Grandfather, Born 12-18-1775 in Virginia, son of James Chew and Mary Caldwell, died 3-12-1848, buried at Andersonville Cemetery, Ross County, Ohio. He came to Ohio in about 1814 and settled here in Ross County in 1816 and bought a farm. I am the sixth generation to own and still operate the farm. He went to the Walbash river area of Western Indiana and lived there for 10 to 15 years. His son Andrew went with him and married a woman in that area and started a Chew line there. He came back to Ross County and spent his remaining years here and died here. He is buried in a cemetery about a quarter of a mile from his farm. I think you have Bob Chew's book, My Ohio Joseph is 5 Joseph 2. There is another Joseph, 1 generation later, 6 Joseph 6, whose father Andrew is a brother to my Ross County Joseph. He ended up in Hamilton County,Ind. Are you located in Indiana and had some Chew relatives who went by the name of "Ma and Paw Chew"? I spent many hours on the computer with her. It ended up that her husband and I had the same grandfather 8 generations back. I have a lot of information about the Ross county line and some on the Indiana line of 6 Andrew. Will be watching for your reply. Bob Blue, Chillicothe, Ohio , Ross County
