Re: April 14, 1861 - 150 years ago today.
Your John Monroe Alewine was son of George Crayton Alewine (12/30/1875-1959 SC) and Emma Lowe (1873-12/29/1937).
George Crayton Alewine was son of John Darby Alewine (1836-8/21/1918) and Elizabeth Callaham (1834-1891).
John Darby Alewine>Jacob Alewine b 1808>Michael Alewine b 1777>Michael Alewine b 1738>John George Alewine the Immigrant.
I descend from Michael b 1777 through another son - Abraham b 1795.
