My 4x-grandmother and 5x-grandmother was Emaline "Milly" Alewine, daughter of George and Catherine Alewine. She was born in 1800 in Newberry County, South Carolina. Her great-granddaughter through her son, John Thomas, was Ollie Mae DeHihns. Her great-great-grandson through her daughter, Martha Emaline, was Dewey Glymph. Ollie Mae and Dewey got married, and were my great-grandparents. So, Ollie and Dewey were not only husband and wife, but also 2nd cousins once removed!
