"John Ashe Alston (1817-1858), is mentioned in the Minutes of the U.Va. Board of Visitors (August 17, 1837) when he asked “for permission to keep a horse in the vicinity,” a request that was turned over to the Faculty, with the proviso that they might “grant the permission asked so long as it may be deemed important to the preservation of Mr. Alston’s health, and under such restrictions as they may prescribe.” He married Frances Buford Fraser (1820-1897); the couple had the following children: Hugh Fraser, Thomas, Dr. Theodosius, John Ashe, Washington, Helen, Algernon (1) (d. young), Algernon (2), Fanny Buford, and Rowland Alston. John Ashe Alston was a rice farmer, though he also served in the state militia: “Lieutenant Col.” John A. Alston was elected Brigadier General to command the 9th Brigade of the South Carolina Militia in 1844. He was also a supporter of the arts, and was instrumental in founding the Carolina Art Association in 1857, and in organizing a show of the work of artist Charles Fraser in Charleston. John A. Alston is buried in the All Saints Protestant Episcopal Church Cemetery on Pawley’s Island, Georgetown, SC."
