MY BROTHER AND I HAVE TRACED OUR TREE TO BETHLEHEM, PA. OUR GGGGF ROBERT PHILLIPS WAS BORN THERE IN 1818 AND MARRIED SHARLOTTA (CHARLOTTE?) UTTER. AMONG THIER CHILDREN WAS BORN HUGH HENRY PHILLIPS (1/16/1849) WHO MARRIED ELIZABETH JANE WHITE, THEY HAD ALAUSON BURTON PHILLIPS BORN 12/31/1878 AT BEUNA VISTA TOWNSHIP, PA. HE MARRIED POLLY AMANDA CRUMM.
I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW IF MY BRANCH IS FROM ENGLAND OR GERMANY, I NATURALLY ASSUMED ENGLAND. CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER AND MY GGGGF MARRIED SHARLOTTA UTTER (NOT AN ENGLISH NAME), AND THEIR GRANDSON'S NAME WAS "ALAUSON" IT IS POSSIBLE WE COULD BE FROM GERMAN/EUROPEAN DESCENT. IF ANY OF THESE NAMES HELP YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW, WE CAN COMPARE NOTES.

Jacob is my 5th g-grandfather and I have his wife as Anna Maria. I have his offspring and quite a bit of the tree from him
on down. I would like to go back from him but I also love to fill in the tree beneath him and would love to hear from other grandchildren.

Noticed your posting about Bethlehem, PA. That is where my great-grandmother, Hannah PHILLIPS was born in 1822. She migrated (somehow) to Stark County, OH where in 1839 she married Francis R.HALL. They had 10 children, lived in Columbus, OH, then MO. Do you see any connection with your Bethlehem PHILLIPS line?

Surnames: Phillips/Murray
I have been seraching for 3 years for my husbands grandfather, John Henry Phillips who was married to Eliza Elizabeth Murray and they had up to 9 children, somewhere in Pennsylvania. All perished in a scarlet fever epidemic circa 1911, except one son, Lawrence (born in 1900 in Philadelphia) and 1 daughter, I believe her name was Julia (she was about 3 years older than Lawrence). I believe John H. (grandfather) was born in PA circa 1880. The fact that you mentioned a Henry and a Robert in your message made me wonder if there might be a connection. My husband's name was John Henry also and he had a brother named Robert who died in infancy.

Eliza born in 1880 in Philadelphia PA, was the daughter of Joseph Murray and Fannie Bell. they also had Alice Murray, 4 years old in 1880, and Mary, 3 years old in 1880. Fannie was the daughter of William and Letitia Bell, 50 and 49, respectively, in 1880.

In 1919 census, they also had a son named Joseph F (27 years old) and Anna G (20 years old). Eliza was not listed although her sister Mary was, Alice was not.
But I have been unable to locate either John Henry and Eliza Elizabeth's marriage certificate or either of their death certificates or obituaries anywhere.

If anyone has any info that would help me, please help me.

Hi, Paul,

Since your last name is Phillips, I would like to tell you about a Phillips DNA project that is currently being conducted at familytreedna.com. Here is a link to the project: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/PhillipsWorldwide. If you click on "Y Results" at the top of the page, it will take you to a DNA chart that shows the results of all the participants thus far. The project has attracted 109 participants and 15 unrelated families of Phillips have been identified. In addition, there are more than 30 participants who do not match any other Phillips in the project.

DNA testing for genealogical purposes has become very popular in the last five years, and about half a dozen companies have sprung up offering DNA testing at relatively affordable prices to the general public. The main emphasis has been on surname projects. Men who share the same last name or some variation of it are recruited to take a DNA test, and then results are compared to discover which of them are related within a genealogical time frame, which generally means within the past 600 years. In Europe, permanent surnames only came into general use by 1400 AD. By joining a surname DNA project, people interested in family history with matching DNA can compare notes and make connections, perhaps enabling them to trace back several generations further than they could without DNA comparisons. Also, DNA analysis can reveal the general region where the ancestor of the participant originated; ie, Scandinavia, central Europe, the Mediterranean, the British Isles and Western European seaboard, etc.

The DNA test is painless and only involves swabbing the inside of the cheek with a special scraper. The lab mails a kit to the participant and then the participant mails his samples back to the lab. The kit is assigned a number and the name of the participant is never published, thereby assuring privacy and confidentiality. Here is a link to the page at the Phillips Worldwide website where you can order the kit: http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=X66026&am...
Just scroll down the page and fill in your name, address, phone number and email address. Click on the arrow beside "Type of Test" and you will see a dropdown menu describing the various tests available. You can pay for the kit online with a credit card and the lab will mail the kit to you within a couple of days.

The administrator of the Phillips Worldwide DNA project is named Harry Shannon Phillips and his email address is PHILLIPSDNAPROJ@AOL.COM in case you would like to contact him directly. He goes by his middle name Shannon. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me or Shannon. By the way, all of us involved with the Phillips Worldwide DNA project are volunteers and none of us get paid to promote the project. We are just interested in sorting out the different Phillips families who immigrated to the New World and hopefully jumping the ocean back to Europe to discover our roots.

Hope you decide to join!

Sincerely,
Nancy Kiser
