Ithink I finally found my Abram/Abraham Alewine in 1840 Census. He is in Anderson, SC 1830, and Abbeville 1850 and 1860. I noticed his brother, Ephraim Alewine was also in Anderson 1830, Abbeville 1850 & 1860, and in Charleston in 1840. I found A Alwire in 1840 Charleston, so am assuming this is my Abram. He and Ephraim seem to have stayed in close contact.
