Re: Origin of name

Hi Toni, I thought I might get into this discussion. Israel Dodge Allphin is also My gggrandfather. My mother remembers lap stories with her grandmother Sara Ann Eliza Allphin who crossed the Great Sandy with her parents, Israel and Burnetta, in 1857 to Utah. Her line wound up in Nevada. She was totally surprised to find out that we go back to Colonial Virginia. I live just outside Norfolk, and our library has a tremendous collection of geneological documents. In my spare time I head over there and search for Allphins and Chiltons (aka Sheltons). Ive not found a thing on Henry in Middlesex Co. or Norfolk Co. although I keep running across web claims that he was born in Middlesex Co. or Norfolk and was a ships carpenter. So far Ive checked parish records for Middlesex and Norfolk, ships passenger lists, bonded emmigrants, convict lists, wills, gleanings, indendures, advendurers, cavaliers, anything that might look the least bit promising. If there is anyone who can point me in the right direction for some hard evidence, I'll be glad to do the legwork and share what I find.
So far all I have found is references to his descendents in Christ Church Parish records but this is nothing new.
