Reubin Alewine (born 1805) was a Ggranson of our first immigrant ancestor "John George Alewine" (born 1710) who in 1752 came to America "Charles Towne" received a land grant for 250 acres and settled his family in "The Dutch Fork" Newberry County, South Carolina. Reubin was a granson of Michael Alewine (born 1738) and the youngest son of John Alewine (born 1762). He moved to Jasper County, Georgia with his older brothers David, Elijah, and Daniel. He probably lived in David's home until he married Priscilla Buchanan (born1806) on April 5, 1827. Reubin lived near his brother Daniel most of his life, in Fayette County, Georgia and then in Randolph County, Alabama. Priscilla died February 28, 1885 and Reubin died August 14, 1893. Both were buried in the Ranburne Baptist Church cemetery in Ranburne, Alabama where many of Daniel's family were buried. Below is a list of Reubin and Priscilla's children.

This information was passed along to me by another "Alewine Family" researcher. I hope that it will be of help to you. Good Luck, Charles S. Alewine (GGGGGGGgranson of John George Alewine)
