Leo Lyford Chew (1900-1964), Jay County, Indiana

Working on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Leo Lyford Chew (1900-1964) was the son of William Anderson Chew and Emma Susan Straight.  Prior to searching this database, I only had him as Lyford L. Chew in my database.  This marriage record to Hazel May Harmon on June 12, 1929 in Jay County, Indiana gave me her maiden name, as well as her parents, Thomas Harmon and Rebecca Huston.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 24 Jun 2013), Leo Lyford Chew and Hazel May Harmon, 1929.
Lyford would be my paternal first cousin three times removed.  Our common ancestors are Ezekiel Cooper Chew and Caroline Bishop Woolston.  Have yet to research him yet past the 1930 census.  Other than his burial in the Salamonia Cemetery, I haven't added any other facts.
