HI. I'm part of the Chew line running back to Walter Chew of Williamsburg PA and then Cape May Point NJ. My grandfather (Clifford Chew) has done extensive reasearch on our specific line and has it traced back to England. Also, we are having a family reunion this summer at which I can look up any specific lines for folks or ask him of his knwledge. Id be happy to help. Also there is an amatuer historical society in Glouster NJ which has a bit or research on the origins of the Chew name.

A close ancestor of mine here in Northern Michigan was Abel Woolston Chew (b 11/01/1843 from Camden, NJ)who was the son of Ezekiel Cooper Chew. Abel was the superintendent of schools for the Charlevoix school district around 1900. If there is a connection I would love to know more on the Ezekiel line. I also know Abel's mother was Salome Holdeman. I can provide info on descendants of Abel if you would like also.
