Thanks for that info, but I have proven that the John Rufus Phillips line isn't mine. It's a shame. Especially since I have a John R. and the marriage to Tate would have been perfect.
I searched for Phillips Ranch too as it is the only tangible thing other than names (William James John) that I have.
That's why I posted Delorous,Demeris,Drucilla. Those names are different enough to be noticed. Poor old WC wants me to find his father, I know he does. I have a framed pic of him and 2nd wife Amanda. I talk to him all the time. Just step up to the Information Window please and tell me the KY county!
His sister Mary "Mosey" Phillips married William Kanaman in Williamson Co May 27, 1855 had 3 sons and 1860 census in Williamson has no husband and the same James R. brother living with her and then disappears. Actually I think the first son from previous marriage as census says born 1853.
Well, not dissappear, but with no 1870-1910 index - TX is a big place. Can you verify which ED's cover 1870 Williamson?
