Hugh PHILLIPS came to Grant Co. with his wife Elizabeth DONNITHORNE and daughter Mary Elizabeth about 1845. A short time later he moved to Iowa Co. and built the US Hotel in Mineral Point. Elizabeth and an infant son, Hugh, died in the cholera epidemic about 1850, after the Census, and Hugh Sr. married Priscilla LADNER in 1851. She was the daughter of Edward LADNER (LEDNER in the 1850 census). He also died in the epidemic. I would love to share information with any others researching these lines. I am also looking for Hugh and Elizabeth's daughter, Edith E. May Phillips who married a Robert Burns from New York, according to Hugh's obit in 1880. She had a grandson, Hugh Donnathorne Collins.
