No descendant of Israel Phillips and Huldah Towne has gotten DNA tested so far to my knowledge, but several descendants of Rev. George Phillips of Watertown MA have gotten tested and they belong to Phillips Family DNA Group 30 at this link:
Another Israel Phillips married Hannah Mann 6 August 1795 in Providence, R.I. The marriage record indicates his father was also named Israel. Quite a few researchers believe his parents were Amity and Israel Phillips who died in Saratoga NY in 1823. However, there is also a record of an Israel Phillips who married Mary Smith 29 Nov 1791 in Berkshire, MA, and it seems likely he was the son of Israel and Amity because the marriage record says he was "of Saratoga NY". Perhaps Mary Smith died young and Israel remarried to Hannah Mann but I have not seen any proof of this. Have you?
