Thomas Chew (b. ca. 1816), Hamilton 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.

Thomas Chew (b. ca. 1816 Ohio) was the son of Joseph Chew and Emile Chew.  He married Hannah Waller on November 5, 1848 in Hamilton County, Indiana.  Prior to searching this database, I didn't have Hannah's maiden name.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 24 Jun 2013), Thomas Chew and Hannah Waller, 1848.

Thomas must have been married previously, as he has a son, William (aged 17) living with him in the 1860 census in Adams Township, Hamilton County, Indiana.  Thomas and Hannah had at least three more children. Have yet to add any further information on the family to my database.

Thomas was my maternal first cousin six times removed.  Our common ancestors are Andrew Chew and Anna Marie Barthus.
