Phy Family Genealogy Forum
I am interested in your posting that says that Philip and Anne are the parents of Josiah Phy. I believe that the parents of my ancestor, Aquilla Phy, were also Philip and Anne. I have a land record for Philip Phy for 1824 and one for Aquilla Phy, assignee of John Phy, for 1834. On the description of Aquilla's land it said that it was bounded by the house of Widow Phy. I believe that Philip died sometime before 1834. I have not been able to prove that Philip and Anne are Aquilla's parents. I have seen a census records for Philip Fy for 1820, Jackson Co. and one for Anne Fy for 1830. In both censuses, there are several young men in the households that are the appropriate ages to be Aquilla and brothers. I believe that the children of Philip and Anne were Josiah, Christopher, John, and Aquilla. Christopher appears as a neighbor of Aquilla in Platte Co., MO. in 1850. Let me know if you want copies of any of this information.
