True Crime and Chill

ABOUT

Delaware: Burying the Ghost of Mr. Chew

People used to make fun of him for his name. Can you Imagine being tormented for your name every day? You walk down the street, and people mimic a sneeze or pretend to chew on something. It was no surprise when Chief Justice Samuel Chew died in 1743 that he started haunting the local townspeople. Then, what they did to quiet his ghost was unexpected.

Correction Note: Mr. Chew was NOT a Doctor. I (Amber) called him a doctor repeatedly throughout the recording without any explanation. It wasn’t written in the script as a doctor, nor did any of the research yield he was a doctor.
