Thanks, for taking the time to reply my posting! I and several other Phipps researchers have been reviewing the claimed lineage of Isaiah Phipps (b. ca 1709) having a son named Joseph Phipps who supposedly married a Mary Romal who supposedly were the parents of Benjamin Phipps (the Revolutionary War veteran who died in Grayson Co, VA). The problem is that no one has yet been able to provide a single piece of record evidence to prove that Benjamin's father was a Joseph Phipps and his mother was a Mary Romal. In addition to this "elusive" Joseph Phipps, there is also no known evidence that the Isaiah Phipps, who lived and died in Granville Co, NC, in 1766, ever had a son named Joseph. In this Isaiah's will, only one child is named, a son Isaiah (in addition to a wife named Ann).
I eagerly request and welcome any evidence you may have found in your research, which documents the lineage between Isaiah, Joseph, and Benjamin. If you would be so kind, please share what you have.
On a separate note, if you have from your research solid documentation on your lineage from you back to Benjamin Phipps and Jane (Jean) Hash, have you consider participating in the Phipps y-DNA project on Family Tree DNA? We are trying to assemble y-DNA test results from a variety of male Phipps descendants from the various Phipps families traced back to Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The growing group of testers and Phipps researchers would welcome a male Phipps descendant of Benjamin Phipps (b. ca 1761/62, d. 1838). With more participants, we can build a genetic picture of the various Phipps families and possibly see how closely related (or not) they may be to one another.
Look forward to hearing more from you on your Phipps line.
