Chew Family, St. Joseph County, Indiana
Vital Statistics Index to St. Joseph County, Indiana Newspapers, 1831-1912 by David Eisen.
Located this book at the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, Indiana several months ago and just now getting around to extracting the information for my files.
CHEW, Daniel, m. Bertha Adams, SBW 17 Aug. 1889-1.
CHEW, J. Parker, m. Harriet Louisa Brown, SJV 15 Dec. 1853-3.
CHEW, Mr., d. 27 Aug. 1888, SBW 1 Sep. 1888-1.
SBW = South Bend Weekly
The Daniel Chew who married Bertha Adams was actually Donovan R. Chew (1869-1933), son of Dr. Ezekiel Cooper and Caroline Bishop (Woolston) Chew. Donovan would be my paternal 2nd-great granduncle.
The Mr. Chew listed, was the obituary for Ezekiel Cooper Chew (1822-1888), my paternal 3rd-great grandfather.
The J. Parker Chew is unidentfied, though his presence in the county predates my immediate family by thirty years.
