Family Milestones: December 2nd

My maternal 6th-great granduncle, Joseph CHEW, married on this date in 1799 in Frederick County, Virginia to Elizabeth THOMAS.  Joseph was the son of Major James and Mary (CALDWELL) CHEW, and the older brother of my Andrew CHEW.  Joseph was born December 19, 1765 in Virginia.  Elizabeth was born June 9, 1772, probably in Pike County, Virginia, the daughter of Sampson THOMAS. They raised a family of 10 children.  Joseph died March 12, 1848 in Andersonville, Ross County, Ohio, and Elizabeth died September 11, 1843 in Andersonville, Ross County, Ohio.
