Mr. Earle resided in Stamford for a period of ten years, not only serving as pastor, but also engaging in the work of teaching, for which he was peculiarly fitted.

As long as he lived he retained a fondness for the schoolroom, and at different periods of his life he joined the work of a pedagogue with his other professional employments. It was while teaching school at Babylon, Long Island, in his twenty-first year that he was converted. He immediately came home and applied for admission to the church. He was baptized on the 8th of December 1833, and on Christmas of the same year he began to preach, laboring for the conversion of souls in the vicinity of the village. These efforts were attended with such success that many were converted during the two years following, among them being his next older brother, Samuel, with his wife Phoebe. Thus began a ministry that terminated only with his life, and that was characterized by the same earnestness and zeal manifested in the first months of his religious life. He was licensed to preach on February 9, 1834 and for the next forty-eight years labored incessantly in the ministry, having his greatest success and finding his greatest pleasure in the work of evangelism, for which he was peculiarly fitted. Alfred was of a roving disposition and lived or preached in several places, to include Hopewell NJ, Salem County NJ, Wilmington DE. Bucks County PA; Steuben County NY, Rockland County NY, Camden NJ, Riceville PA, Cambridge OH, Lawrenceburg IN, Moore's Hill IN, Pierceville IN, Johnsonville PA and finally Philadelphia. It was while at the Southampton Baptist Church of Bucks County, that he received a diploma from the Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, and began the practice of medicine, in connection with his ministerial labors. After a pastorate at Southampton of four and a half years, Dr. Earle terminated his connection with that church and removed to Philadelphia, where he opened a drug store. After he withdrew from the pastorate of the Southampton Church, thirty-three members seceded and in March 1849, formed the Davisville Baptist Church. Dr. Earle was engaged to supply the new organization, walking from Philadelphia to Davisville on Sunday mornings, a distance of about seventeen miles, and returning by stage during the week. Davisville became more like home than any other spot. He was tall and commanding in stature, with a strong countenance full of character and a flashing eye, with the voice of an orator, vibrant with passion, his platform presence was very impressive, and gave weight to what he said. He married March 29, 1835 at Oyster Bay, Priscilla McCoun (Lockwood) Hegans born April 3, 1817 Oyster Bay and died December 14, 1888 Philadelphia PA; both buried at Davisville Baptist Church Cemetery, Davisville, Bucks, PA (Photos); and born to them were [in addition to the below there were four others, unnamed]:

( FRANCIS MARION EARLE, Rev., born July 5, 1841 Beezeleys Neck, Lower Alloway Creek, Salem Co NJ and died November 16, 1916 Philadelphia PA. His boyhood, up to the age of sixteen, was spent in the vicinity of Davisville PA. In 1857 he went with his parents to Hornby NY and for a while attended a school at Elmira NY; he worked in his father's store in Piermont NY; at the outbreak of the Civil War he was living in Jersey City NJ, where he learned the trade of carpenter; 1862 when he became of age, he enlisted in Company B., 13th Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers; his Regiment left Newark for the seat of war on August 31, 1862 and seventeen days later were in the thick of the fight at Antietam; followed Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, where the Regiment saw hard fighting; after the last named engagement, Slocum's Corps, to which the 13th belonged, was transferred to the Army of the Cumberland, and Mr. Earle went with Sherman on his March to the Seal was in the War till its close; on being mustered out of service, he settled in Philadelphia, where he spent the remainder of his life. He was first associated with his brother-in-law, Mr. T. B. M. Addis, in the flour and feed business. Later he went in business for himself, first on Otis Street, then on Frankford Avenue. But during the latter part of his life, for more than thirty years, he was employed in the Philadelphia Post Office, mostly as a carrier. Mr. Earle was converted while in the Army, and at once became active in religious work. Connecting himself with the Mount Zion Baptist Church, on Frankford Avenue, he was made superintendent of the Sunday school, in which capacity he served for many years, both there, and afterwards, in the Messiah Baptist Church on Dauphin Street. He also engaged in street preaching and the work of organizing new Sunday Schools. Several of the Baptist churches in Philadelphia grew out of interests begun in this way, notably the Fiftieth, the Allegheny Avenue, the Fairhill, and the Wissinoming Avenue. Some of these look upon Mr. Earle was their founder or, at least, as largely instrumental in their coming into being. Mr. Earle also conducted the Waterloo Street Mission for several years, holding meetings every night for a very extended period. Yielding to the persuasion of his friends, Mr. Earle was ordained to the Christian ministry, but he never ceased his secular occupation. For seven years he served the Wissinoming Baptist Church as pastor, engaging daily in his work as letter carrier. On August 21, 1862, before his Regiment left for Washington, Mr. Earle married, at Jersey City NJ, Susannah Suarez born October 11, 1840, near Havana, Cuba. Born to them were:
