Re: Philander Phillips

In Reply to: Philander Phillips by Michelle Schreiber of 20453

Here he is on the 1850 census in Genesee Co NY:

Philander Philips 34, bc 1816, NY
Louisa Philips 26, bc 1824 NY
Delevan F. Philips 6, bc 1844 NY
Betsey Philips 30, bc 1820 NY

I suspect Betsey might have been his sister. His son has an unusual first name. Here they are on the 1860 census in Villenova, Chautauqua Co NY:

Philander Phillips 45 bc 1815 NY
Lisa Phillips 38 bc 1822 NY
Dlivan Phillips 16 bc 1844 NY

On this census, he is living two households away from a household headed by Daniel Libby. Daniel has a 43 year old wife named Betsy and a 65 year old woman in his household named Lucy Phillips born in Rhode Island. I wonder if this is Betsy and Philander's mother?

However, I found a tree on that says his parents were Gardner Phillips and Betty Ann Jenks. This file also says Philander had a brother named Jerusha born in 1824.
