Pamela, I'm researching the Shews from Alabama.My husbands grandfather was Clifford Godfrey Shew, his father was Thomas Jefferson Shew, Thomas' father was Daniel Shew, and Daniel's father was Boston Shew.Boston married Elizabeth Brewer in North Carolina and had the following children:Daniel, Simon, Deborah C., Elvira, John, and 2 daughters (unknown).John is the only child of theirs that I show as being born in Alabama.The others were from Wilkes Co.,NC.After the 1830 Census, Boston and Elizabeth left North Carolina for Alabama. Daniel married Nancy Elizabeth Allen in Etowah Co., AL in 1869.Deborah C. married Lot Day, Simon married Sarah ? (they too had a son named John, and Charles, Elias, Henry, daughters: Emily, Nancy, Amanda, Lucinda. If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know.Would love to exchange information.Thanks. Esther.
