Mourning Phillips, of Virginia was created by Mamie
Tuesday, January 1, 1828
The committee of Claims have, according to order, had under consideration sundry petitions to them referred, and have come to the following resolutions thereupon: ..........

2. Resolved, as the opinion of this committee, That the petition of Mourning Phillips, stating that he enlisted as a soldier in the war of the revolution, in the year 1776, for three years, and faithfully served throughout that term, and was in the battles at Stoney Point and Monmouth: that in 1781 he again entered the service, and continued in the army until the surrender of Lord Cornwallis, and praying to be placed on the pension list, is reasonable.

Mourning Phillips and his 1st wife Hester Payne are my 4th ggrandparents through their son Rev. Bernard Todd Phillips and the Rev.'s daughter Paulina Payne Phillips Burruss. In view of the above I'd wondered how Mourning's son (by his 2nd wife Elizabeth Kendrick) Miles Turpin Phillips and grandson Alonzo Lafayette Phillips, whose grandfather is Isaac Phillips, were elected to the SAR.

Hi, Judith,

Thanks for posting your pedigree and the other information. You might be interested in knowing that a descendant of Mourning Phillips recently joined the project and got his Y-DNA tested. His Y-DNA matches that of Phillips Family DNA Group 17. This group traces back to John Phillips who died in Richmond Co VA in 1701. My guess is Mourning must have been his grandson or great grandson. Here is his pedigree:

Mourning Phillips bc 1752 VA, m 1) Hester Payne, m)2 Elizabeth Kendrick
Thomas Phillips b 1784 Henrico Co VA, m Elizabeth Turner
Bernard Phillips b 1818 VA, m Eveline Tennessee Huffman Sellers
Andrew John Phillips b 10 Aug 1867 Williamson Co IL, m Nancy Rebecca McAnally
Charles Raleigh Phillips b 1906, m Eunice Flo Stephens

Let me know if you would like to get in touch with the person who sponsored this test.

Hi Nancy,

Betty Head has been touch with me since last December, but thank you. I'm inclined to think her Thomas is a son of Mourning because Thos. had a son Bernard and there just aren't that many Bernard Phillips b. VA in Censuses. Offhand I can think of only one, a grandson of Mourning through his son Isaac is named Alpheus Bernard. Two questions- Some time ago a descendant of my 2nd ggrand uncle Edward W Phillips was in touch with you (and with me) and was considering participating in the DNA project. I haven't heard from that family, don't see any pedigree for them here, and wonder if you'd heard from them. Second, may I post what I have on Edward's family, and for that matter on Mourning's son Isaac or must the pedigrees be submitted by a direct descendant?

Thanks for all the work you and the others do for us Phillips descendants.

You may post anything you like, Judy! Betty Head's relative is the only one descended from Mourning Phillips who has gotten DNA tested so far.
