Looking for PLACE of death of Civil War Veteran, NORRIS N. PHILLIPS. Date of death was, 3-09-1892, age 58. Place of burial, Woodside Cemetery, Ellisburg, Jefferson Co., NY. He enlisted in the town of Ellisburg and was in the 005THNYHA Outfit, Co.E, GAR Y. His year of birth was 1834. The town clerk of Ellisburg has no record of his death.

Norris, at age 15, was in the 1850 Census, town of Ellisburg, in the household of Lavias Fillmore. Have been unsuccessfull in tracing his whereabouts until his death. Next to his headstone is another with the name of Lorretta Tifft, who d.8-21-1898. Lorretta (Phillips) Tifft, was my gr-aunt. I believe Norris & Lorretta were brother & sister, but need his death record to confirm his parentage.

Please reply if you have any info re his death or possible obituary notice. Thanks!

Julia (Phillips) Lewis
