buffer problems

I am trying to create buffers around point features, the point features were created using X,Y, coordinates so i displayed them using the geographic coordinate system.

The distance for these buffers are 20 mile radius. The buffers would end up being bigger than my county boundary layer.

 

my question is how can i create these buffers the right way so that they are the correct distance?   the buffers end up being bigger than my map no matter the projection system or sometimes nowhere near my map.

 

I have a deadline to complete this project, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have attached the files im using to create the buffer below.

Thank you.
