Blew family tree research

Journal by Bblew

I am trying to trace my family back to our origins in Europe. I have good documentation back to a Richard Blew born about 1770 in in Hampshire county VA (now WV). I can't seem to find any documentation of his birth or his parents. About the same time there were people living in the same county with the last name Blue. Not sure if someone changed the spelling or if it is another family altogether. Some possible ancestors may have been from New Jersey, but I have not found any record of a move from NJ to WV. Just wondering if anyone has info on Richard Blew and his ancestors.

Hi! We are related. Richard Blew is my ancestor as well, and I'm stumped trying to get past him (and wife Rebeccah). What's your name? Any luck? I may even travel there to see if I can find any birth info. Let's talk!

Hey Randy, my name is Brian Blew. I live in the OKC area. I'm pretty confident in my lineage back to Richard and Rebeckah but have not found any birth records for Richard, nor any documents with his parents names. Confusing the search are records with the name Blue. I can't tell if these are unrelated people or if the spelling was changed or incorrect. I feel like the best hope is to find someone with an old family Bible that lists these missing ancestors. Not sure how to go about finding such a thing. I have also considered a trip there to research records, maybe one day. My email is [email protected] if you have questions or if you find something new.
