FindAGrave Success: Rev. Nathaniel Chew (1786-1866)

Thanks to FindAGrave volunteer, Natalie Herdman, I now have a photograph of the tombstone of my paternal 4x great-grandfather, Rev. Nathaniel Chew (1786-1866).  The memorial erroroneously states he died in 1868.

Nathaniel was the son of Nathaniel CHEW and Sarah SPRINGER, and was born in Gloucester County, New Jersey. He was a Methodist preacher, or circuit rider.  He died January 24, 1866 in Mahaska County, Iowa.

Nathaniel was married three times.  The first time circa 1805 to Keziah DRIVER; the second circa 1812 to Mary WEST (1795-1848); and thirdly December 10, 1848 in Iowa to Nancy MOSIER.  Have much to research in regards to his marriages, I descend through his wife Mary West.
