Hi Tiffany,
My name is Glenn Richard Chew, but I go by Dick. I was in Fredricksburg last summer. My daughter played in the AAU nationals in Virginia Beach. We visited Jamestown and stayed all night on the south side of F-burg. I got started tracing my family tree several years ago. If you haven't traced the Chew family yet, you are in for a surprise. John Chew first came to Jamestown in early 1600's.His son was Joseph. Joseph lived most of his life in Annapolis, Maryland. Joseph had a son Larkin. Larkin was a character and actually settled most of Spotsylvania Co. I believe I-95 cuts through where he lived, just south of F-burg. Larkins son was Thomas. Thomas married Martha Taylor, relative to president Zachary Taylor. They lived near Rapidan in Orange County, just west of you. My branch came from Thomas as the family moved to Ohio, and then Indiana. My branch settle in Indiana 1830-1840 not far from where I live now. I live on the southside of Indianapolis. This will help you understand what I have told you. Go to library downtown F-burg. In the basement they have a genealogy section. Look up the Chew family in the vertical files. E-mail me to let you know what you found out. When I was there last year I copied 3 names from the phone book thinking I would try to make contact, but I never did. I just wondered if a direct line was still living in the area. I am 13th in my line of Chew's in america. Check with your parents, grandparents, etc. and find out as much as you can about your line. I would be very interested, like you, in knowing how you are tied in. Hope to hear from you and Good Luck
