Note: John Alewine is the 4th great grandfather of Peggy Ann Stephens. "Most of them (Alewine's) came from the Black Forest area of Germany, although the Alewines probably came from Alsace, an area on the French side of the Rhine River populated with German-speaking people. They were principally descendants of ancient German Tribesmen known as...Alemanni (or Alamanni) who were engaging in combat with the Romans as early as 300 A.D." - from Alton Alawine, Meridian, Mississippi. John is the only Alewine to have served in the military during the American Revolution. John had six sons and two or three daughters by his first wife Catherine "Caty" and after her death about 1805 he married another younger woman, also named Catherine. Soon after John's death his widow Catherine and two sons, John and George moved to Lexington County. The oldest son David and the younger sons, Elijah, Daniel, and Reubin, moved to Jasper County, Georgia. These were the first Alewines known to have moved away from Newberry County. - Kathy Allison <allison0004 [at] msn [dot] com> Newberry County, South Carolina Probate Estate Abstracts Vol 1 1987 p. 142 Box 6 Pkg 29 1799 John Fish, Mary Fish Admin.
