Thanks, Steve, you gave me the most information that I've received yet on the early females in the ALEWINE family.
I corresponded with Alton Alewine for a while, but he never gave me the information that you just posted.Perhaps he didn't have it.
Thanks also for your suggestion of working on Catherine ALEWINE.South Carolina records are difficult to come by out here in the West.Until a few years ago, I couldn't even order SC records on microfilm to read at the local branch Mormon Library as SC did not allow them to be sent out of the main Mormon Library in Utah and SC charges an arm and a leg to purchase each microfilm of its records.
Having been retired for 24 years, my budget doesn't allow ordering many microfilms or copies of records, so searching in SC is difficult for me.
I really appreciate your help.Thanks again!Dolores
