Hi Dolores in Ca, I'm glad you contacted me. I feel as though I already know you. I've read your postings about "Elijaw Alewine Carroll" on the message board and given thought to this mystery more than once. Like you, I think there is a good possibility that the Alewines fit into your past family history somewhere down the line. I wish I had the missing info to piece this puzzle together, but I don't. According to the info I have, the immigrant "John George Alewine" had to list his children on the application for his land grant. This is the only known record of his daughter "Catherine Alewine" (born 1734). It is not known whether she ever married and had children or not, or if she did, what her husband's name might have been. There is evidence that the two youngest sons, "Adam Alewine" (born 1744) and "George Alewine" (born 1753) never married. The oldest son "Michael Alewine" (born 1738) married "Mary Risinger" (born 1743) and together they had five sons and two daughters. The daughter's names were "Katherine Alewine" (born 1761) and "Christinen Alewine" (born 1773). My info indicates that neither of these daughters ever married. I get a gut feeling that John George Alewine's only daughter Catherine is worth a hard look!
