I would be interested in swapping information on the Tew's who settled in Henry County. My Aunt Caroline has been collecting information from tombstones and from other relatives, however many of the older relatives that knew the verbal history of the family and how everyone connected are now dead. There seemed to have been many common names within the family so that makes it a little hard when you are not close to the courthouse you need to visit.
