Hi Melinda, yea I know, I know, it’s been a long time. But I would love to get in touch with you to see if you have any family stories about Charles Thomas Dews. He was the son of George Dews and Hannah Snow, and was taken-in by Peter Dodgson (my grgr-grandfather) after George Dews died in 1854. You indicated that many of the Dews are still in Jersey Co, Illinois, but I believe that Charles Thomas, early on, went to Douglas Co, Kansas. Followed years later by your husband’s ancestor, Martha (Dews) Smith. The last is based on the 1930 US census, where she was living with the Milton C. Elliott family. So maybe your family stories just might include Charles. If you do find this message, it would be super if you responded, or if you prefer my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks! Tom.
