My grandmother was Bessie M.(Mack?) Alphin married Claude B. Herring in Duplin Co.I beleive her father was Roger Sherman Alphin b. abt 1854 and married to Frances Outlaw.
An IDG chart on the LDS site lists his father as Calvin.I found a Calvin M. Alphin born in Duplin Co., NC on Dec. 12, 1832. Also a Calvin Alphin from Duplin Co. enlisted in the CSA in 1861 showing his age as 30.
Any information on any of these would be appreciated.
