According to a file posted on Ancestry.com, William David Phillips was a descendant of Joel Phillips who died in Wilkes Co GA in 1792. Here is his pedigree, according to the Ancestry.com file:

William David Phillips b 1861 GA, m Ellen Virginia Wright
Robert Crowley Phillips b 1 June 1833 Walton Co GA, m Lucy Ann Neill
Henry Phillips b 11 March 1801 Morgan Co GA, m Lavinia Atkinson
Joel Phillips b 1748 Wilkes Co GA, m Charity Brantley
Joel Phillips b 1728, m Elizabeth Harrington

This file goes on to indicate that Joel was the son of William Phillips and Harriet Horn, which has now been proven through DNA to be incorrect. If the file is correct about William David Phillips' descent from Joel Phillips, then this line of Phillips belongs to Phillips Family DNA Group 8 and the parents of Joel were William and Ann Phillips of Anson County, NC, formerly of Orange County VA.

For what it's worth--This all neatly and closely fits letters and family histories in my direct line. I am descended from Robert Crowley Phillips and his first wife, Lucy Ann Neill. Known to my grandparents as "Crow", he and Lucy fathered this eldest son, Wm David Phillips plus two daughters, (1) Lula Phillips b 20 Apr 1866/ d 29 Dec 1966 and (2) Lucy Ann Phillips b 20 Dec 1870 / d 6 June 1941 and another son, my greatgrandfather Edgar Monroe Phillips ("Ed") b 29 Aug 1869 in Douglasville, GA / d 2 Apr 1933 on the Phillips farm just outside Mart, Texas.
Edgar Phillips married Ardell Frazelle; their youngest son was my grandfather, Carl Gilbert Phillips, b 28 June 1902 Mart, Limestone TX. Carl (C. G.) Phillips, a retired Houston banker, died 20 Mar 1974 in Houston.
The only significant difference in my own family history is that Robert Crowley Phillips is the son of Thomas Henry ("Henry") Phillips who was the son of Whitmell Phillips and Nancy Ann Hurley; Whitmell b 1775 is the son of Joel Phillips b c1735 (son of Joel Phillips and Elizabeth Harrington, this Joel presumably the son of William Phillips...??
Family stories have young Edgar Monroe Phillips accompanying his brother Wm David Phillips to Texas in the mid 1890s. For reasons lost to time, Wm David then returned to live out his life back home in GA, while Ed remained in Mart for his lifetime, becoming a prominent farmer there. I have letters to my grandmother ( Carl married Rubye Floyd Applegate, daughter of Claude W Applegate and Stella Watson (Applegate) of Mart) from cousin Tommie Phillips LaCavera with the above lineage.
Carl had only one child, a daughter, my mom.

My grandfather, Robert Clifford Phillips, used to tell stories about living in Texas before moving back to Ga. in 1902 after his dad made 200 bales of cotton. They came back to Ga and bought a farm near Whitesburg in Carroll Co. He mentioned unlce Ed, and said his wife was dark, with black hair, and a lot of jewelry. They thought she was an american indian, but with the last name Frazelle she was perhaps of french descent.

The family moved to texas in 1892, and I have only seen "Thomas Henry Phillips" mentioned twice. Every record I have ever seen on the family merely lists him as "Henry Phillips". I would like to know the source of this.

I also see a problem with our linage. I checked for info on Henry Phillips in Morgan County and found where a Henry Phillips and Hardy Phillips were on the militia rolls for the county in 1811, and that in 1822 Henry Phillips died and Hardy was his executor.

Since our Henry named his children after the Joel Phillips family, I don't see how we could not be descended from them, but this Henry Phillips on the militia rolls could not be our Henry, but is he our Henry's father? If so, was he descended from the Joel Phillips family? Another puzzzle.

Hi, Randolph,

Did you ever get in touch with Joe Phillips, who also descends from Henry and Lavinia? He said he would give you a call. By the way, Family Tree DNA is holding a sale on DNA tests until the end of December, in case you are interested.

There was a Hardy Phillips mentioned in the will of Mark Phillips who died in Greene Co GA around 1817. Two descendants of Hardy have gotten DNA tested and their DNA does not match the DNA of Group 8. Instead, they belong to Group 53. Here are the pedigrees of the men in Group 53:


Kit number 190838

1. Probably Mark Phillips dc 1817 Greene Co GA, m Nancy (Bush?)
2. Hardy Phillips bc 1779 NC or GA, m Rebecca Veasey
3. Joseph L. Phillips b 10 Oct 1828 Greene Co GA, m Anne Terrell
4. John Henderson Phillips b 27 Aug 1859 Troup Co GA, m Ella Rebecca Philpott
5. William Clifford Phillips b 10 Cot 1881 Troup Co GA, m unknown

Kit number 163867

1. Probably Mark Phillips dc 1817 Greene Co GA, m Nancy (Bush?)
2. Hardy Phillips bc 1779 NC or GA, m Rebecca Veasey
3. James Thomas Phillips bc 1815 Greene Co GA, m Harriet Story
4. Seaborn Phillips bc 1844 Greene Co GA, m Elizabeth Hunton
5. Charles Robert Phillips bc 1872 GA, m Lillian Stout
6. Charles Alexander Phillips b 1906 Toledo OH, m Esther Oswald
