Maybe I can help you a bit. I am descended from George W.Alphin (1817-1900), a brother of Julia Ann Alphin (1828-1854)who married Daniel Circle in 1847, and Mary Jane Alphin (1831- )who married Lewis Circle. They were 3 of 11 children of Richerson Alphin and Elizabeth Carter.There is also a Richerson Alphin and a Mary Jane Alphin in later generations. I don't know anything about the Circles, but my relatives used to talk about them.I am lucky to have a copy of several pages from a family bible which was in the home of my ancestors. The copy was made by a first cousin of mine when she was becoming a DAR member. The above dates are from that bible. I'll be glad to send you a copy.
