John Chew, b.1830 Ohio, mrd. Agnes Jane Miles b.1834 in KY. John died 1899, settled in Southport Ind and is buried South of Southport.7 children, Willis b.1856, Wilfordb. Nov 11 1857 or 8, Isabell 9/12/1860, John W 1872, Letitia 1866, Norm M ?, Jeanette ? All born in Indiana.

Ira A Chew, son of Wilford, b.4/17/1880, Marion Co Ind. Married Blanch H Browning of Marion Co. on 11/14/1906, died 1940, buried Union Chapel, little red church in the Wildwood.One child Richard N. Chew
Richard Nelson Chew married Rosa Elizabeth Pence of Greencasle Ind on 12/1/1934.
When I saw the name Wilford, I started searching thru 65 year old Chew research papers that had been sent to my Grandmother in the late 40's by an Indiana Chew. I took a long shot guess that you are related to Richard N so that is why I included everything. If you are, the Va. Chew who came West and started this line, is a brother to the Va. Chew who started my present Ohio Line. Hope this is a help to you. Bob Blue, Chillicothe, Ohio
