I think we have a direct connection however I think your info there is a little off. Hopefully you can still see this. John Phillips born 1806 married Aileen Gallagher, they had at least two children one was my line Edward b 1836 married Bridget, they had a son John b 1872 who married Bridget fleming. That was my great grandfather.
Your line was the brother of Edward called Michael b 1843 who married Mary Brehonyl, his son was Thomas Phillips b 1872 who married Anne Meehan who had a son John born 1896 who is your great grandfather. Hopefully you see this
