Hi,
I am currently reseasrching the Phillips family from Sellheim. My 2nd Gret Granparents Frank And Ann Phillips could have possibly owned the Day Dawn Hotel in sellheim either before 1900 or possibly after this time, when it is likely that my Great Grandparent William And Theresa(Flatrey) Phillips took over it from 1900-1903. Abt 1904 William And Theresa owned the W. Phillips Post Office Hotel in Cloncurry Qld,until around 1910.They had 7 chidren, Frank,Cecilia,Leonard, Aidan(my Grandfather),Kevin,Patricia and Carmen. If anybody knows anything off this family especially Frank Phillips parents, who have a welsh background could you please contact me. Thank you.
Serina.

Hello,
There were Phillips family in Charters Towers who ran business - Sellheim is just outside Charters Towers. You could contact Charters Towers & Dalrymple Faily History Assoc. Inc at P.O.Box 783 Charters Towers 4820 - they have lots of local info. I am not sure if the Phillips are the same family as yours bugt they may be able to tell you.

Hi
Not sure they have the phone on - email is ctadfha@yahoo.com.au and their vice president is Les Halvorsen. Perhaps email is probably the way to go.
Good luck.
Regards, Kathy

Serina,

The 1903 Queensland Post Office Directory has Wm Phillips, Day Dawn Hotel, Sellheim.

Interesting that in the same 1903 Directory there is a Frank Phillips, New Guinea Hotel, Cooktown.

This might be off the age mark for your Frank but in 1883 & 1884 a Frank Phillips had retail spirit dealers licences for Ravenswood!

Regards
Gerry
