Since one of my lines is Phillips and I do so much research in Williamson I took a look at the books I have. Checking the Williamson County History and the Burnet County History (since families migrated back and forth), I find no evidence of any submissions. I suggest you verify this information with census data first. Good luck.

I think you mis-read my post. I didn't say I couldn't find them.
I've found all of them, that's how I know how long and where they were and who they married and their children. I have about 40 census on them.

But nobody knows them. No church's (and they were quite religious), no obits, very few burials, and those just 2 miles NE of Williamson in Bell and a couple in Marble Falls, no newspapers, no slaves, no history articles, no divorces.

You would think with 21 children and a 40 year span in the same area - SOMETHING would turn up.

Arrived in Sabine, TX Dec 13, 1839. Recvd 640 acres the next day. Lots of tax lists 1840-50. 1850 bought 277 acres and on Panola Census. In Burnet by 1853. 1860 and 1870 Burnet, 1880 Bell, no 1890, 1892 head dead, 1900 Williamson, 1908 wife dead, but children still found 1910, 1920, 1930.

I appreciate your looking into the two books, but I had already tried that too. The head of this family William C. Phillips is my brick wall, which is why I have so thoroughly researched him as he was born in KY and I don't know his parents names, but I do know all his siblings and who they married and their children

He even had a ranch called Phillips Place in Florence, Williamson Co, TX. Drucilla (his daughter) married Thomas Lindsey and had 3 children in the ranch house. Her son Dail Henry Lindsey took it over and I have been in contact with Dail's son, Dail Ellis Lindsey that was born in the house Jul 23, 1939. He told me that it was housing deer in 1958. So it's gone. That brings me to just 6 months short of 100 years I know about these people in Texas. Pre-census Texas. At the moment I'm working on a William M. Phillips of Sabine 1839 being WC's father. I even have a photo of WC's grave. A magnificent iron structure with PHILLIPS weaved in iron on the gate - all standing as straight as the day installed 1892.

I posted the message with all those names, because if that's someone else's family too, they would recognize the string of unusual names immediately. I've been researching 44 years, but my main line W. C. Phillips stops in Sabine 1839. I've had extreme success on all other lines. So I'm frustrated. Somebody's gotta know these people!

Since you research PHILLIPS and Burnet and Williamson Counties, I can't resist posting a couple generations. Maybe you'll stumble on something. I'll be grateful.

Surnames: Phillips
In the Burnet County History, Vol 2, p. 246, there is mention of Robert L. and Mary M. Phillips, both born on the Phillips Ranch west of Marble Falls. There children were Wendal Lee, b. 20 Mar 1904, J. R., b. 2 oct 1908. These are the descendents of John Rufus Phillips of Llano County and Susan Alice Tate of Nacogdoches County. John's father was Benjamin M. Phillips m. Melissa Crownover. The only thing I caught was the ranch match up with your location. I will continue to look in Williamson County next.

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?

Hello Teena,
I had posted a tiny bit of info that might have helped you, but I think I had put it in the wrong place! I wont retype it, but if you look up T O lindsey it should come up. It is on this Williamson co board.
You might already know the info though..

In case you might want these...

Dolores Phillips (first cousin to the actor Dan Blocker) m. Rufus Merrill Laurence, Jr. b. 1920 (TX).

Thomas Phillips m. 5-19-1803 Susannah Edwards, b. 1778. She is the dau. of John Edwards b. 1748 and Susannah Wroe b. 1748.

Amaranth Lowndes Phillips m. Matthew Gayle b. 2-17-1797. He was from SC. His parents are John Gayle, Jr. and Nancy Whitehead. Her parents are Joseph Philllips and Patsy Hall. Children are: Phillip Heustis, Ameranth, John, Zena Ray, Mary Arthur, Francis Swepstone, and George Washington.

They all go through the George Washiington lines. Either through Augustine or Mildred.

I am sending this because I share a few of your surnames and maybe it will help you in some way.

Sorry Gayle, these people are totally unrelated to any of my people. In a 100 years, we never had a Thomas Phillips.

My original post (the one you responded to) shows ALL of their spouses. That parts complete.

Hope you are still doing research on the Phillips Family. I may have contacted you several years ago, if not I am Benjamin Fewell and Damaris Phillips granddaughter. I have several pictures you maybe interested. I am very interested in adding to my research and would be happy if I could help you. Thanks Lizzymay

I have not been on Ancestry in a year. What are the odds I would sign on 2 days after your post!

I also have a new Sony Vaio and Win 7 and can't load up my 6000 person genealogy. I last used Win 2000. Family Tree Maker (FTM) tells me I need to go thru the steps of buying their software for Vista and load my genealogy into someones Vista computer. Then XP and load. Then Win 7 and load. It beats retyping it all. Apparently FTM had to completely restructure their software when Vista arrived.
So this may take a while.

But pictures of Ben Fewell and Demaris Phillips, I would be insane for. So happy to meet you Lizzymay. I am also at I have one picture of W.C. Phillips and Demaris mother (her name escapes me at the moment). It's 8x11 and just a head and shoulder shot. Demaris's mother is W.C.'s 2nd wife. I descend from his 1st wife Eliza Jane whom he married in KY. W.C. raised 22 children between his 1st wife, his 2nd wife's previous 3 children, and then he and the 2nd wife had I think 11 children.
