Phillips family in Geneva Twsp 1850>
Posted by: Phil Cordes Date: July 24, 2001 at 11:31:42
  of 408

Jonathan Phillips b. abt 1818, wife, Elizabeth b. abt 1817, children Seymour (Idiotic) b. abt 1840, Charlotte b. abt 1842, Mary Bell b. abt 1846, Elizabeth b. abt 1849 and Jonathan b. abt 1851.
Does anyone have any connection?
The family shows in Geneva Township 1850 and 1860 censuses, but then disappears. The parents were illiterate and owned nothing. Jonathan had three sisters, Mary (Jesse) Nation, Sarah (George) Miller and Nancy (John) Miller who lived in the Hedge area close to Bartholomew County. Jonathan may have lived near them. Has anyone seen old graves on farm ground that could be theirs? Jonathan and his family may all have died about same time from disease. Their trail is cold. The sisters have all been traced to modern times.
