Family Milestones: June 1st

My maternal 5th-great granduncle, Samuel NESBIT, married on this date in 1813 in Harrison County, Virginia to Nancy THOMAS.  Samuel was the son of Samuel and Mary (BERRY) NESBIT, and the younger brother of my Elizabeth NESBIT.  I do not have dates of birth or death, nor parentage for Nancy.  Samuel was born March 1, 1781 in Virginia.  They moved to Missouri, where Samuel died September 1, 1866 in Stoutsville, Missouri.  Nothing further is known at this time.

My maternal 5th-great granduncle, Thomas CHEW, was born on this date in 1801.  Thomas was the son of Andrew and Anna Marie (BARTHUS) CHEW, and the older brother of my Elizabeth CHEW.  Thomas married Julia Ann HUGGINS, daughter of William HUGGINS.  Julia was born in March 1804.  They raised 7 children in Hamilton County, Indiana.  Julia died September 21, 1876.  Thomas died January 21, 1879 in Hamilton County, Indiana.  Both are buried in the Hinkle Creek Friends Cemetery, Hamilton County, Indiana.
