Surnames: Chew
My name is Richard Chew and my family is from Oklahoma. My Grandfathers name was Richard Chew and he had a brother whose name was Minard Chew (he died in OR). My Great Grandfathers name was also Minard. My family is from the McCloud/Shawnee area of Oklahoma, but I do not know where my great grandparents are from. If anyone has any information that could help me in my search it would be appreciated.

Surnames: Chew, Crawford, Gill
We have a Minard Chew in our family. We know nothing of his vital info except that he had a sister named Mamie Chew. They were the children of Richard Chew and Margaret Thornton (b. 24 October 1852). Margaret was the daughter of John Thornton and Mary Ann Radford or Redford. Mary Ann was also married (1860 in Illinios) to a John Crawford who was born in Scotland. Mary Ann and John had a son Charles Crawford who moved to Oklahoma. He moved around Oklahoma and we can follow the trail through his children's births - Yukon (several kids born here), Shawnee (1), Cashion (1), Apache (4 known, but possibly 8). It is quite possible that the Chews were moving around these same areas with the Crawfords and Gills. Do you think there is a connection here? We haven't come across too many Minard Chew 's in the databases.Do you know if your Great Grandfather had a sister named Mamie?

Thanks, Beth

Our Crawfords ended up in Oregon also - they went from Oklahoma to Montana and then Oregon.

I'm really thinking we have the same Minard. (the Sr. one)

Richard

Your grandfather's father was Minard Thomas Chew (Born in Illinois) who married in 1902 Nelly Gay Evans (Born in Kansas 1885). Minard Thomas Chew's father is Richard Chew (Born 1849 in KY) who married Margaret A. Thornton in January 30, 1873. Much more information on the Chews later.
My grandfather (Minard Chew in Portland Oregon) was the brother of your
grandfather. I Never really knew him though and am like you looking for
information about him. My grandmother was a great help in information but
still very limited. I was united with these family members in 1993. Velma
Chew (Cole died last December) who was the wife of Minard. My hopes is to
share information. My last name has been changed as I was adopted by my
step father.

I have a strong feeling that Richard Chew married to Maggie Thornton on Jan 30, 1873 in Christian Co. Illinois is the son of William Chew & Ellen Cox.

Here at the notes I have on the family of William & Ellen chew. I'm decended from their son Thomas Jefferson Chew b March 11, 1851 Indiana and d June 16, 1927 in Joplin, Jasper Co., Missouri. I believe that William probably died there also, but am waiting for a death confirmation

My name is Michael Chew and my grandfather was Minard Clifford Chew who died in Portland Oregon. The great grandfather was Minard Thomas Chew born in 1877 in Illinois who died in McCloud, OK (not sure when). You being in McCloud might be able to find a grave to find death date. This is a mystery to me as well.
