Ann, Here's a just a tidbit I ran across on a distant uncle of yours. In the 1860 census Reuben and Pricilla are living in Randolph, Alabama. Three younger siblings of Sarah C. are listed as George D. Alewine 20, Carolin Alewine 17 and Mary Alewine 10. I was looking on FindaGrave.com and found the grave of Confederate PVT George D. Alewine far from home in Richmond, VA. He died 7 Sep 1861 at age 21. The Ancestry.com Civil War database indicates he served in Company E, of the Alabama 13th Infantry Regiment.
