ALEWINE – Alonzo Pickens Alewine, the only son of Jacob [1838-1909] and Rhoda Alewine [1830-1905], was born February the 10th, 1866, and departed this life August 23d, 1906, at Anderson, S. C. On November the 14th, 1895, he married Miss Maggie Dunlap, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Dunlap, of Greenville county, S. C., and niece of Rev. A. T. Dunlap, of our Conference.Five children blessed this union, three of whom preceded the father to the “land beyond.”Brother Alewine’s body was taken to McCormick [SC] for burial.Our brother was a sincere and faithful Christian, a member at his death of West End Methodist Church, Anderson, S. C.Though he had lived but a few months in our midst, he had the confidence of all who knew him, and exerted a definite influence for good.He was scrupulously exact in giving one-tenth of his income to the Church. Brother Alewine was a quiet man; in the true sense a gentleman - considerate of others in thought, in speech, in conduct.He was always a true, helpful friend of his pastor.He loved the Church and her ministry sincerely.Nowhere did our brother’s life tell more effectively than in his home, at his own fireside.He leaves a wife [Maggie O. Dunlap, 1876-1952] and two small children [Celia G. Alewine, 1902-1926 and Fred Herbert Alewine, 1900-1965] who shall linger on these earthly shores until they too shall pass to “the holy city” where “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.”- W. E. Wiggins
