Am interested in communicating with anyone who has info on Alpheus. He was a 49er who sailed to California from Virginia in 1849 aboard the Glenmore, he was a physician and 1st elected mayor Los Angeles. He returned to Virginia and died there. One source states that his father may be Churchill Anderson Hodges, a Richmond hotelier.
