I am not related but found this in the History of Randolph County by Tucker and Turner, page 383
Thomas Phillips came in 1821, being born about 1790; he died in 1872, about 82 years old; he was an intelligent and enterprising citizen, an enthusiastic Republican, an ardent Methodist and a friend of every good work. His widow is still living, in her eighty-ninth year, sprightly and active, able to cook and wash dishes, and altogether a notable speciman of pioneer strength and hardiness. Thomas Phillips came from New Jersey, he married Rebecca Hammett; they had nine children; six boys, three girls; eight grown and married, seven still living, one son, John Wesley, was killed at Milford, Kosciusko County, Ind, as he was on the cars returning from a political rally addressed by Hon. Schuyler Colfax, as the result of throwing stones by a gang of villainous rowdies at the cars crowded with people. Thomas Phillips' son, William Phillips, resides at Bloomingport, and is a wide-awake, thoroughgoing citizen, a life-long Methodist, a brave and efficient soldier, and an enthusiastic and reliable Republican.
Hope it helps.
