Query: John BLEW/BLUE, Franklin County

I am trying to find information about the John Blew/Blue family from Franklin County, Indiana. He was born in 1773 in Somerset, New Jersey to Michael Blue/Blauw and Mary Stout. In 1816, John married his second wife Margaret Moak/Metes in Franklin County, Indiana. His date of death is unknown but he is buried in the Big Cedar Cemetery, Springfield Township, Franklin County, Indiana. One son, Dr. Peter Moak Blew, was my wife’s 3rd great grandfather and I have been trying to document his birth to John and Margaret. He eventually settled in Pulaski County, Indiana.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
