MATTHEW PHILLIPS

ID: I0047
Name: Matthew (Matt) PHILLIPS
Sex: M
Name: Matthew PHILLIPS
Birth: ABT 1750 in Albemarle County, Virginia
Birth: 1750
Death: 4 DEC 1790 in Amherst County, Virginia
Note:

(Updated 4/16/2003)
"Matt" Phillips is mentioned in the list of early settlers of Amherst and as being in the Revolutionary War from Old Amherst. Matthew served in Captain Samuel Jordon Cabell's Co., 6th Va. Regiment of foot soldiers, U.S.A. (DAR records, Charline Hull 5/6/2003)

Birth year of Matthew sons, John and Charles, obtained from the Tax Lists of Amherst County. Tax Lists compiled by N. Kiser.

Some names of grandchildren from Charline Hull, descendant of Joseph Nelson Phillips (5/6/2003).

It is the belief of many Phillips family researchers that Matthew Phillips is a brother of Zachariah Phillips (married Frances White). Two of the witnesses to Matthew's will - Leonard Phillips, Sr., and Leonard Phillips, Jr. - are probably Matthew's father and brother. Zachariah named one of his sons Leonard and he named a daughter Johannah. David Phillips was one of the witnesses to Matthew's will, and he and his wife Mary were appointed by Matthew to manage his property after his death. We believe this is the Mary Davis who is a sister to Mildred Davis who married Zachariah's son, Thomas. These men witnessed each others wills, deeds, and other legal documents during their lifetime. They purchased and received land patents on property adjoining or close to one another. A number of the Phillips family married back and forth into the Davis and Rucker families. Other names that keep coming up as a witness or as owning adjoining property are Harris, Purvis, and Roberts. The search for more information continues.


Matthew Phillips died December 4, 1790. His nuncupative will was probated on January 18, 1791, in Amherst County, Virginia, and recorded in Will Book 3, Pages 177, 178, and 179.

Transcription of Will:
"In the name of God Amen, We Leonard Phillips Senr., Leonard Phillips, Junr., and Mary Phillips being pregnant and cald' upon as Witnesses by Matthew Phillips December 4 before his death To observe That These following Words to be his Last Will Which Runs as follows ----

"In the first place he desired that All his Just Debts To be paid of as quick as possible without selling of any The Estate if Possible to be Avoided.
