INTRODUCTION. 

A popular historian has said that the study of history ' ' sets 
before us striking examples of virtue, enterprise, courage, 
generosity, patriotism ; and, by a natural principle of emula- 
tion, incites us to copy such noble examples." We, of the 
present generation, know but little of the trials, fatigues, 
hardships, fears and anxieties, which our fathers and mothers 
of early New England days experienced and willingly endured, 
that they might establish a government and found a nation, 
where the privileges of civil and religious liberty, and the 
benefits of general education, should be the blessed inheritance 
of their posterity for all time. 

Having been accustomed to the even temperature and mild 
winters of the British Isles, the abrupt change of location, with 
unavoidable exposure to the harsher climate and rigorous win- 
ters of New England, caused many of the delicate ones among 
the first settlers to waste rapidly away with consumption or 
other unlooked-for diseases, while even the most vigorous of the 
first one or two generations after immigration, being subjected 
to the unceasing toil and the perils incident to early settle- 
ments, rarely attained the age of three-score and ten. But they 
looked beyond the present with the affairs that concerned them- 
selves only and comprehended the possibilities of the far- 
distant future, and with laudable self-sacrifice and persistent 
eftbrts amidst harassing discouragements, made such provision 
for the well-being of their descendants as their oppoilunities 
afi:brded. It was evidently a chief desire and great aim with 
them so to establish in the lives of those committed to their 
care, principles of piety, morality and virtue, and habits of 
industry, mental culture and economy, that they in their turn, 
and each succeeding generation, should, in the words of the 



IV INTRODUCTION. 

Psalmist, "make them known to their children; that the 
generation to come might know them, even the children which 
should be born, who should arise and declare them to their 
children." 

When it seemed certain that they were securing the germs 
of the blessings they had so fondly sought, they were sorely 
embarrassed by having their precious liberties curtailed, and 
were suddenly deprived of the privilege of having rulers of 
their own election, and obliged to submit to the arbitrary dicta- 
tion of governors appointed from beyond the sea. Their best 
men were often demanded as soldiers, and required to take 
long and perilous marches through the unknown wilds of the 
forest, and wexe exposed to the dangers of camp and battle- 
field in distant parts of the land, in order to carry on wars for 
the crown of England ; and then, as if this were not enough, 
they were burdened with taxes to defray the expenses of those 
wars. They were often in terror of midnight attacks, when 
their homes were liable to be reduced to ashes, and they or 
their families slaughtered by a foe more wily and treacherous 
in his nature, more cruel and unrelenting in his hate, than any 
previously known in history. They were obliged to work 
early and late with but little diversion, in order to wrest from 
a stern and unyielding soil, the products necessary for the 
comfortable maintenance of their several households ; the num- 
bers of whose members as compared with the size of some of 
the families of modern civilization, could our hardy ancestors 
be permitted to see the startling change, might well cause them 
to blush for their posterity and feel alarm for the future 
existence of their race. They would have spurned the prac- 
tices followed by modern voluptuaries in the pursuit of ease 
and pleasure. Constant bearing of life's heavy burdens, expe- 
rience of trying hardships and the practice of sturdy virtues, 
enabled them to build the foundations of a race whose charac- 
teristics of energy, perseverance and general progress, have 
excited the admiration of the world. Although occasional per- 
sonal misdemeanors and a few public acts, which might be 
cited, show that we must not extravagantly claim for all of 



INTRODUCTION. V 

them unexceptionable purity and integrity, or that as a body 
they always acted wisely and justly ; yet, considering the state 
of society in England prior to their emigration, and the injus- 
tice and abuse to which they and their ancestors had in some 
cases been subjected, we can but be surprised that high moral 
principles were so generally exemplified in their lives, and that 
their public decrees toward those whom they regarded as 
propagators of error were so seldom characterized by vindic- 
tiveuess. As well do the deeds of piety, patriotism and benevo- 
lence which they actually performed, as the rigid self-denials 
which they practised and the crushing hardships which they 
patiently endured, entitle them to our admiration. In seasons 
of danger to the body politic they voluntarily and promptly 
offered their time and services to relieve the community from 
the threatened perils. And taking a later and less general 
view, subsequent to the first century of settlement, after per- 
sistent industry united with manly energy and judicious man- 
agement had won the smile of Providence in the accumulation 
of ample fortunes, we see, in several instances, a large propor- 
tion of those fortunes yielded up and benevolently and piously 
contributed for the promotion of education, morality and 
religion. It is a sacred duty that we, especially as their 
descendants, owe to such nol)le men and women as these, to 
preserve carefully the memory of their lives, that their posterity 
to the remotest generation, being incited by the " natural 
principle of emulation," may be led "to copy such noble 
examples." 

"Phillips," a name spelled in a variety of forms, is of 
ancient and classical origin, being derived from the Greek, 
Philos-hippos, or horse lover. In Wales and other parts of 
Great Britain its use as a surname has continued for a long 
period, evidently for five hundred years, and perhaps much 
longer. It is said that " Phillipse " is Welsh and that 
"Philips" is from Worcestershire. It is stated by good 
authority that the Watertown family of this name were of the 
" Philips " of Worcestershire. Some are positive that all the 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

English families of this name had their origin from Wales and 
subsequently spread over Great Britain. Several different 
ways have been employed in spelling, as Phillips, Philips, 
Phillipse, Philipps and others, some of them so peculiar as 
hardly to be recognized as having a common origin. 

Families and individuals of this name began to emigrate 
from the Old World at a very early date in the history of this 
country, as early as 1630, and some a little earlier, and locate 
at different points near the sea-coast, but more especially in 
New England. From that time to the present they have con- 
tinued to multiply and spread, by natural causes and by emi- 
gration, until now they are to be found in every State from 
Maine to California ; and those in this country who spell their 
name by the more common form of Phillips, are numbered by 
thousands. 

It is now exceedingly difficult to establish the relation which 
existed between many of these earlier Phillipses or to trace out 
satisfactorily the several lines of their descendants. Of the 
family of Rev. George Phillips of Watertown, Mass., there 
have been at least ten generations. There may be some now 
of the eleventh, but if so, no notice of them has come to the 
writer. None of the first five generations are now living. 
The last one, probably, of the fifth generation died in 1865 at 
the great age of nearly 105 years. There are five divisions of 
this family so marked by long continued residence in particular 
localities that they might well be designated as distinctive 
branches. These are the Andover Branch, from Rev. Samuel 
Phillips who located in that town in 1711 ; the Boston 
Branch, from Hon. John Phillips who went there to live 
about 1718; the Brookhaven Branch, from Rev. Geo. 
Phillips who located in Brookhaven, Long Island, 1697 ; the 
Makblehead and Salem Branch, from Jonathan Phillips who 
removed from Watertown to Marblehead about 1719 ; the 
Oxford Branch, from Joseph Phillips who went there from 
Watertown not far from 1725. It will perhaps be noticed 
that the Christian name Samuel occurs in nearly every genera- 
tion of the Andover branch ; while in the Oxford branch there 



INTRODUCTION. vii 

is an almost entire absence of either of the names Samuel, Sarah 
or William. Some members of each of these branches might 
have been found living in or near the several towns from 
which the respective branches take their names, at any time 
during the last one hundred and fifty to two hundred years. 

Some of the earliest progenitors of the New England families 
of this name of which the line of descent has not been fully 
traced appear to have been the following : 

Nicholas Phillips (Deacon) of Weymouth, 1640, seems to 
have had a large family, and a large number of the name at the 
present day are doubtless his descendants. The recurrence of 
such names as Joshua, Richard, Benjamin, Caleb and Experi- 
ence, goes to show that one branch of his family removed to 
the vicinity of Dighton, Mass., at an early day. Some who 
have given the subject attention are of the opinion that part of 
those of the name in the early history of Rhode Island were his 
descendants. 

John Phillips was of Duxbury and Marshfield, 1638 to 1677 
or later and probably had a large number of descendants ; but 
the statement on page 123 that his family appears to include 
those given under Nos. 70 to 89 is found to be incorrect so far 
as it relates to Capt. John Phillips of Easton, page 135, who 
came probably from Weymouth prior to the year 1700, and 
whose apparent age would place his birth not far from the year 
1670, giving so much ground for believing that he may have 
been the son, born June 21, 1669, of Nicholas Phillips of 
Wejnnouth, page 192. 

John Phillips (Col.) of Charlestown, about 1655, had a large 
family and numerous descendants. 

William Phillips of Boston, 1640, had descendants living 
about one hundred years later. 

Henry Phillips of Boston, 1640, afterwards of Dedham, 
had descendants in the vicinity of Boston more than one hun- 
dred years later and appears to have had a numerous progeny. 



Viii INTRODUCTION. 

James Phillips of Taunton, son, probably, of William, 1643, 
of same place, had children born from 1661 to 1675. 

Andrew Phillips of, or near, Charlestown, married prior to 
1659, had descendants living more than sixty years later. A 
recurrence of several names would lead to the conclusion that 
he was the ancestor of Ebenezer Phillips of Southboro, page 97, 
whose origin is involved in mystery, but nothing as yet found 
goes to prove the connection. 

At the time of commencing this work, in 1877, it was the 
purpose of the compiler to include only the descendants of 
Joseph Phillips of Oxford, Mass., a grandson of Rev. George 
Phillips of Watertown ; and it was only a few weeks before 
going to press that it was decided to include all that is 
embraced in these pages. But in the collection of material for 
completing the original design, considerable amount of records 
and interesting items of history of other families or branches of 
this name came into the possession of the compiler, and he was 
led to take in historical matter of families of the name appa- 
rently not connected with the Watertown family. Had it been 
known at the beginning how much was to be included, a 
still more extended research would have been made in some 
directions, and the arrangement might have been somewhat 
diflerent. 

That the genealogies given in this work are all correct can 
hardly be expected. Different individuals, in giving their 
recitals of the same event, sometimes make statements at 
variance with each other ; sometimes they give different dates 
for the same event, and frequently the town records differ from 
those kept in families. These differences have at times made 
it a difficult matter for the compiler to decide which was to be 
received and which rejected ; but in cases of doubt he has taken 
particular pains to arrive at what appeared to be strict truth. 
In some cases of a disagreement in dates, both dates are given. 
The transcriptions have all been carefully reviewed, and it is 
believed that each name and date, except a few in which errors 



INTRODUCTION. ix 

were apparent, is given exactly as furnished to the compiler. 
Some of the incidents related are from oral statements by- 
elderly but well-informed persons, some of whom lona: since 
passed away. Many have manifested a deep interest in the 
work, and kindly furnished whatever, in their possession^ was 
likely to aid in its preparation. On the other hand, laro-e 
numbers showed no interest at all ; and of the many hundreds 
to whom inquiries were sent out, soliciting records and other 
historical information, not one half ever gave a response. This 
will account in some measure for the want of completeness in 
portions of the genealogies. 

The writer takes pleasure in extending his sincere thanks to 
all who have kindly contributed genealogical matter for these 
pages. The number is so great that want of space forbids the 
mention of each by name. In the necessary correspondence a 
sort of letter acquaintance has been created, which, to say the 
least, will leave pleasant memories, and in some cases it is 
trusted has ripened into permanent fi-iendship. Some have 
rendered special assistance in various ways and it would hardly 
be proper to close without giving them more than a general 
notice. 

Early and liberal subscriptions from Daniel Phillips of 
Hartford, Conn., and Walter P. Phillips of New York City, 
without which this book could not have appeared in its present 
attractive form, entitle them to grateful acknowledgments. 
For some of the principal sketches acknowledgments are due 
to Mrs. E. W. Clark, Westboro, Mass., Mrs. J. H. Westgate, 
Maiden, Mass., Mrs. Geo. B. Eaton, Jersey City, N. J., 
Israel Phillips, Greenfield, Mass., Dea. Charles C. Phillips, 
Greenfield, Abner S. Phillips, Bondville, Vt., Joseph Christie, 
Phdadelphia, Penn., Geo. Bassett, Ashfield, Mass., Nelson 
Phillips, Black River, N. Y., Nathan P. Dodge, Council Bluffs, 
la., and Miss E. M. Phillips, late of Medway, Mass.; also 
to the authors and publishers of numerous publications from 
which miscellaneous extracts have been frequently taken. 
Perhaps the greatest amount of material drawn from any 



X INTRODUCTION. 

one work is from Dr. Henry Bond's Genealogies and His- 
tory of Watertown, a work of great value, in which a large 
number of New England families may trace their pedigree. 
The descendants of Rev. Samuel Phillips of Eowley, 1651, 
are given in the following pages mainly as found in that 
work. It will be seen that the New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register, a work which no writer of genealogies 
should be without, has contributed a great number of items, 
some of them quite essential in making out the proper connec- 
tions. Obligations are gladly acknowledged to the few who 
have generously agreed to insert portraits of themselves or 
friends at their own expense. Grateful acknowledgments are 
due to Mr. E. M. Barton, the cordial and communicative libra- 
rian of the American Antiquarian Society, for his helpful sug- 
gestions and oft-repeated permission to examine the books of 
the library. The printing has been executed at the press of 
Charles Hamilton, and the neat and symmetrical arrangement of 
the typographical work is due to the watchful oversight of Mr. 
Benjamin J. Dodge, a printer of long experience, the present 
results of which well meet our anticipations. The lithotype 
portraits are from the works of the Lithotype Printing Co., 
Gardner, Mass., and many thanks are due to their faithful and 
affable agent, Mr. Frank Lawrence of Worcester, for his 
repeated and patient efforts under all circumstances, sometimes 
perplexing, to secure unexceptionally satisfactory work. For 
the steel engraving of Hon. Samuel Phillips thanks are due to 
Mr. Geo. P. Smith of Boston, agent of the Congregational 
Publishing Society, for permission to use the plate in their 
possession. The autographs are printed from the neatly and 
faithfully executed work of Messrs. Kyes & Woodbury of 
Worcester. 

The following arrangement is by families and sub-families 
rather than by generations, though the number of the genera- 
tion is shown by the Roman letters at the left. Each special 
family is numbered at the head, and for convenience in refer- 
ence, these numbers are continuous through the book. The 



INTRODUCTION. xi 

name of each family head is printed in bold type, and when the 
children of any married daughters are included, their surnames 
are given in Italics. The fragmentary records at the close of 
the book are given in the hope that they may assist some in 
retracing their family line, and enable them to make the proper 
connection with other branches. The abbreviations most used 
are, b. for born, bap. baptized, d. died, m. married, dau. 
daughter, ch. child or children, res. residence. 

The number of names in the following genealogies is upwards 
of three thousand. 

Whatever the defects of this work, and the compiler is aware 
of many, he trusts that he has preserved a few interesting, and 
perhaps not altogether unimportant, historical items, as well as 
some links in the chain of genealogical succession which might 
otherwise have been lost. There is still a wide field for genea- 
logical research among the families of this name. To aid and 
encourage any who may be willing to correct errors or supply 
omissions which come to their notice, and to the end that 
correct and more complete genealogies of the several femilies 
of this name may be produced at some future time, a copy of 
this work with a large number of blank pages interleaved will 
be deposited in the rooms of the New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society, Boston, Mass., and letters of correction for- 
warded to that address will receive proper attention. It is 
hoped that all who can will avail themselves of this opportunity 
to assist in producing, as nearly as it can be done, perfectly 
correct and complete genealogies. 

The compiler cannot expect to regain pecuniary remunera- 
tion for his labors, his experience being somewhat similar to 
that of other genealogists who have asserted at the close, that 
had they known the amount of labor involved they never would 
have attempted the task ; but if what is here given shall only 
cause those of the name into whose hands it may come to pre- 
serve carefully all items of family history and lead some one in 
each of the main branches of the name, parts of which are to 



Xll INTRODUCTION. 

be found in this book, to work out a complete genealogy of 
his own branch, one great object of its production will have 
been accomplished ; and the labor will not have been lost if any 
are led to emulate the benevolence, the devotion to duty, the 
patriotism or the piety of the worthy examples found recorded 
on the following pages.

GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY 

OF 

REV. GEOEGE PHILLIPS, 

OF WATERTOWN, MASS., 1630. 



" A Phillips crossed the water with .John Winthrop. aud from him descended 
a long line of ministers, judges, governors, and councillors — a sterling race, 
temperate, just, and high-minded." — Writer in Harper's. 

No. 1. 

(I.) Rev. George Phillips, the first minister of Water- 
town, Mass., son of Cliristopher Phillips of Rainham, was born 
about 1593, at Rainham, St. ^Martins, near Rougham, in the 
hundred or district of Gallow, County of Norfolk, England.* 
He graduated as B. A. from Gonville and Caius College, 
Cambridge, 1613, and received the degree of M. A., 1617. 
"He gave early indications of deep piety, uncommon talents, 
and love of learning, and at the University distinguished himself 
by his remarkable progress in learning, especially in theological 
studies for which he manifested an early partiality." He was 
settled for a time in the ministry in Sutiblk Co., but suflering 
from the storm of persecution which then threatened the non- 
conformists of England, he determined to leave the mother 
country and take his lot with the Puritans. 

He embarked for America, April 12th, 1630, in the Arbella, 
with his wife and two children, as fellow-passengers with Gov. 



* The parish of Rainham was visited in May, 1875, by Henry A. PhillipB, now of 
Boston, who found that none of this name were living in that place, but ascertained 
that some were living in an adiacent town.

Winthrop* and Sir Richard Saltonstall, and arrived at Salem, 
June 12th. Here his wife soon died and was Iniried by the side 
of Lady Arbella Johnson, both, evidently, being unable to 
endure the hardship and exposure incident to a tedious ocean 
voyage, t 

He soon located in Watertown, and without delay was settled 
over the church in that place which was called together in July. 

At the Court of Assistants, Aug. 23, 1630, it was "'ordered 
that Mr. Phillips shall have allowed him 3 hogsheads of meale, 1 
hoo-sh of malte, 4 bushells of Indean corn, 1 l)ushell of oat- 
meale, halfe an hundred of salte fish." Another statement from 
the same source says, "Mr. Phillips hath 30 ac of land graunted 
him vpp Charles Ryver on the South side." % His first resi- 
dence was burnt before the close of the year. There is a 
tradition that his later residence is still standing "opposite the 
ancient burial ground, back from the road." § 

He continued to be the pastor of this church, greatly respected 
and beloved, till his death fourteen years after his arrival. He 
died at the age of about fifty-one years, July 1, and was buried 
July 2, 1644. " He was the earliest advocate of the Congrega- 
tional order and discipline. His views were for a time regarded 
as novel, suspicious and extreme, and he, with his ruling elder, 
Mr. Richard Brown, stood almost unaided and alone, until the 
arrival of Mr. John Cotton, in family maintaining what was and 



* Before the final embarkation which had been considerably delayed, Gov. Win- 
throp says, in a letter to his son, John Winthrop : 

"From aboard the Arbella, riding before Yarmouth, April 5, 1630. 

Yesterday we kept a fast aboard our ship and in the Talbot. Mr, Phillips exercised 
with us the whole day, and gave very good content to all the company, as he doth in 
all his exercises, so as we have much cause to bless God for him." 

t It cannot be thought egotistical for one who does not trace his origin to this Mrs. 
Phillips, to say that there is now little or nothing from which to form an opinion of 
her except the lives and characters of her noble descendants ; and judging from these, 
it is reasonable to conclude that she was a woman of high social standing, lofty moral 
virtue and strong intellect.

§ This old house whose solid oaken frame is said to have been brought over by Sir 
R. Saltonstall, has a projecting second story, partly concealed by a modern piazza, 
and stands well back from the street. Externally there is nothing to indicate great 
age, but its interior retains many marks of antiquity. It formerly had three porticos, 
which have been removed from its front, and a steep roof which has given place to 
one of much less altitude.— jffis^. of Middlesex County, p. 450. 8. A. Drake.

still is, the Congregationalism of Xew England. It is not now 
eas}' to estimate the extent and importance of the influence 
of Mr. Phillips in gi^^ng form and character to the civil and 
ecclesiastical institutions of New England." His name appears 
in the list of those who were admitted freemen, May 18, 1631, 
which is the earliest date of any such admission. 

His inventorv amounted to £.550 2s. 9d., a sum, allowino- 
for the difference in commercial value between that time and 
the present, equivalent, at least, to seven or eight thousand 
dollars. His library was valued at £71 9s. 9d. 

He married (1st) a daughter of Richard Sargent. He 

married (2d) Blizabeth . proliably a widow of Capt. 

Robert Welden. She died in Watertown, June 27, 1(581. In 
speaking of his descendants, the writer quoted at the beginning 
of this record says : 

"•In Brechin Hall at Andover, the lil)rarY of the theoloo;ical 
school, in the great halls of the academies at Andover and 
Exeter, and in Memorial Hall at Harvard College, one may see 
hanging upon the walls portraits of one and another man and 
woman of this famil}^ which belongs among the untitled nobility 
of New England, representing the best element of life there — 
not that which always dwells in the brightest glare of publicity, 
but that which directs and shapes the current of public opinion."

(11.) Rev. Samuel Phillips (son of George, of Water- 
town: No. 1,) was born in England, 1625, probably at Box- 
stead, in the County of Suftblk ; grad. at Harv. Coll., 1650; 
settled in Eowley in 1651, as colleague of Rev. Ezekiel Rogers. 
"He was highly esteemed for his piety and talents, which were 
of no common order, and he was eminently useful, both at 
home and abroad." He married in Oct., 1651, Sarah Apple- 
ton, born in Reydon, Eng., 1629, dau. of Samuel Appleton.* 
He died Apr., 22, 1696, "greatly beloved and lamented," and 
his widow died July 15, 1714. Her funeral sermon was 
preached by her grandson, Rev. Samuel Phillips of South 
Andover, in which he says, "She was an early seeker of God, 
and spent much of her time daily in reading the word and in 

prayer She took care of her children's souls. . . . . 

She was always humble and penitent, and as she lived, so she 
died, depending on Christ for righteousness and salvation." 
Their remains repose in the ancient burying-ground at Rowley. 
Some of their descendants have been among the most distin- 
guished of New England people for their intellectual talents, 
piety, benevolence and public services. There have been seven 
Samuels in this line in direct succession, with the exception of 
a John between the fifth and sixth, and all since the first two 
were residents or natives of Andover. The seventh and last 
was recently cashier of the Maverick Nat. Bank, Boston.

(V.) Hon. Samuel Phillips (son of Samuel and Han- 
nah : Xo. 4,) was born Feb. 13, 1715 ; grad. Harv. Coll., 1734; 
was engaged for some time in teaching a grammar school, but 
he had a natural taste and rare fitness for mercantile and other 
business pursuits, into which he soon entered with zeal and a 
determination to succeed. His natural sagacity and deep fore- 
sight, strengthened by a long and varied experience in different 
departments of business life, gave him confidence and insured 
the success which enabled him in after life to perform the acts 
that have caused his name to be associated with works of useful- 
ness and beneficence. He was extensively engaged in the 
manufacture of gunpowder at the time of the Revolution, and 
for this he erected an expensive mill, which in 1778 was de- 
stroyed by an explosion in which there was a loss of life of three 
persons. "In 1788, he built a paper-mill, which was carried 
on by Phillips and Houghton. He was often the representative 
of Andover, and member of the Executive Council before the 
Revolution, and in the Revolution was a staunch whig : was 
many years a civil magistrate, discharging the duties thereof 
with the most exemplary fidelity. Such were the sternness and 
precision of his manners, alwa^'s frowning on vice and disorder, 



16 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 5. 

that they did not contribute to his popularity. Early habits of 
exactness and economy enaliled him to accumulate a large 
estate, much of which he appropriated to the public good."* 
The crowning act of his life, that which more than anything 
else causes his memory to be held in grateful and perpetual 
remembrance, that which makes hundreds of professional, and 
other learned men his beneficiaries, was the part he performed 
as founder of the Academy at Andover. In this, however, he 
acted in connection with his brother, Hon. John Phillips of 
Exeter, N. H., afterwards sole founder of Phillips Exeter 
Academy, to whom is perhaps due an equal share of the honor, 
and at the suggestion of his son Samuel, known as Judge Phillips, 
to whom is to be accredited the further honor, that he conceived 
the original design, worked out the plan, and drew up the con- 
stitution. The School was established April 1, 1778, the two 
brothers having given for the purpose one hundred and forty-one 
acres of land in Andover, two hundred acres in Jaffrey, N, H., 
and five thousand dollars in money. "The lands they directed 
to be let out on proper terms, the money to l)e put on interest 
on good security, and the profits to be forever appropriated and 
expended for the support of a public free school or academy, 
in the South Parish of Andover." f The school was opened 
with twenty scholars, on the 28th of April, 1778, in a joiner's 
shop, purchased from the funds subscriljed ; and thus, Phillips 
Academy, known at first as Phillips School, had a practical 
beginning. In speaking of the relations of these three men to 
the two academies, a writer before quoted says : J 

"The three men — and the older ones especially were men of 
sound judgment, who moved cautiously, and were not led away 
by any blind enthusiasm — together planned the enterprise, 
determined the locality, and took the necessary steps to bring 
the school into active existence. The combined gifts of these and 
other members of the Phillips family for the endowment of the 
academy amounted, in round numbers, to one hundred thousand

dollars, and for half a century it was under tlie fostering care of 
some member of the family. Phillips Academy at Andover, 
was incorporated by an act of the Legislature in 1780, being the 
first academy so incorporated in America. Six months later. 
Dr. John Phillips, of Exeter, secured the incorporation of Phil- 
lips Exeter Academy Thus these three men were 

founders of the two schools ; and though the sums bestowed, 
when measured l)y the standard of more modern gifts, do not 
cause astonishment, when compared with what others were doins: 
at that time, both in America and in England, they are simpl}^ 

magnificent It was an act of faith, of strong will and 

high purpose, and the spirit which underlay the design is 
embodied in the elaborate constitution which serves for both 

schools The present school 1)uilding replaces one that 

was destroyed by fire. It stands near the top of a hill which is 
crowned l^y the buildings occupied by the theological seminary 
of the Conoreo-ationalists, established in 1808. AVe mention it 
here because it has an organic connection with the academy, the 
two institutions being under the same board of trustees, the 
younger having sprung from the loins of the elder, partly as 
the consummation of a purpose originally formed by the 
founders of the academy, partly as the solution of a difiiculty 
which had arisen when the incorporation of the theological sem- 
inary had been sought. It is plain, too, that the academy is 
influenced in many ways l^y the presence of the seminary. . . . 
. . . Friendships spring up between the older and younger 
men, and the two institutions help to correct each other. The 
fact of the theological school as organically connected with the 
academy has served in many ways to deepen the religious 
character of the academy and to identify it more closely with 
the religious denomination with which it is affiliated." 

He married July 11, 1738, Elizabeth Barnard, daughter 
of Theodore Barnard of Andover, and gr. dau. of Rev. Thomas 
Barnard of North Andover, who died 1718. By this marriage 
with an only child, the real estate at Xorth Andover, formerly 
owned by the Barnard family, became the homestead which has 
been retained in the Phillips family for so many succeeding 



18 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 6. 

generations. The store carried on by Mr. Phillips in that place 
was opened in a part of the same house occupied by the family. 
He died Aug. 21, 1790, aged 75. She died Nov. 29, 1789, 
aged 71. "Her letters are very interesting, and show her to 
have been a woman of great piety and strong religious views." 
Their epitaph contains the following words: "This pair were 
friends to order in the Family, Church and Commonwealth; 
Examples of Industry and Economy, and patrons of learning 
and religion." Children ; of whom it will be seen that only one 
out of the seven survived them :

(V.) Hon. John Phillips (son of Samuel and Hannah: 
No. 4,) was born Dec. 27, 1719 ; grad. Harv. Coll., 1735. He 
taught in public schools in Andover, Exeter and other places, 
after which he had a private Latin School in Exeter. He fitted 
himself for the ministry, and received a call from the church in 
Exeter, but for some reason relinquished all plans for preaching 
and entered extensively into mercantile life. He was a justice 
of the peace, a trustee of Dartmouth College for twenty years, 
from which he received the degree of LL.D. in 1777, "and 
founded and endowed in that College, the Phillips Professorship 
of Theology." He "was authorized to be, in some singular 
cases, one of the Judges of the Superior Court." In his business 
he was eminently successful, and accumulated a large fortune, 
all of which he devoted to benevolent objects. He gave liberally 
with his brother for the founding of Phillips Academy, Andover, 
in 1778, and in 1789, gave it the further sum of twenty thousand 
dollars, "for the virtuous and pious education of youths of 



No. T).] OF REV. GEORGE PHILLIPS. 19 

genius and serious disposition." He bequeathed, by his last 
will, one-third of all the estate of which he died possessed, "for 
the benefit more especially of charity scholars, such as may be 
of excelling genius and good moral character, preferring the 
hopefully pious, and for the assistance of youths liberally edu- 
cated, designed for the ministry, while studying Divinity under 
the direction of some eminent Calvinistic Minister of the Gospel, 
until a professor of Divinity, able, pious, and Orthodox, should 
be supported in this Academy, or at Exeter, in New Hampshire, 
or in both." It Avas this purpose of the founders, of securing, 
permanently, instruction in Theology, which led, about thirty 
years later to the founding of the Andover Theological Seminary. 
He was the founder of the Academy in Exeter. In 1781, he 
' ' secured the incorporation of Phillips Exeter Academy from 
the New Hampshire Legislature, giving to the school in life and 
by be(iuest property amounting at the time to about sixty-five 
thousand dollars, but noAV, under admirable management, greatly 
enhanced in value." In speaking of his acts in connection with 
this institution, a writer before quoted says: "Phillips Exeter 
Academy has its own history and characteristics quite independ- 
ent of Andover. It is almost wholly the child of Dr. John 
Phillips. . . . Dr. Phillips was one of the trustees at Andover 
from its first organization till his death, and for the last five vears 
of his life president of the board. His endowment of Exeter thus 
was an act in generous emulation of his own beneficence. The 
wise provision which he made for the support of the school, and 
the care exercised by those in charge of the endowment, have 
given to the Academy a wholesome independence, so that it 
occupies to-day a position of self-reliance and integrity, having 
funds sufficient for its support irrespective of its receipts from 
tuition fees. During the century which has nearly closed since 
its incorporation it has had, until recently, but three principals 

in succession Dr. Benjamin Abbot, the former of these, 

graduated at Harvard in 1788, and immediately went to Exeter 
as principal. The choice of this man hints at one distinction 
between Andover and Exeter. Dr. John Phillips, like his 
brother and nephew, was a firm adherent to the old school of 



20 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 7. 

New England orthodoxy. He was also a man of deep Ininiility 
and large-mindedness. He saw in Benjamin Abbot, an Exeter 
youth, the qualities which constituted a wise teacher, and he 
chose him to the place, although their theological preferences 
were at variance, — Abl)ot belonging to the new school which in 
process of time became organized Unitarianism. To measure 
Dr. Phillips's liberality, one must needs place himself among 
his contemporaries, and not aiuong his descendants. Not only 
did Mr. Phillips make this appointment, but two of the trustees 
originally chosen by himself, and three others chosen during his 

lifetime, held theological opinions opposite to his own 

The connection with Harvard University has always been a close 
one, and no other school in the country, save the Boston Latin 
School, has sent so large a number of students to Cambridge, 
while the standard of scholarship has been of the highest. The 
largest proportion of boys at Exeter has Harvard in view, and 
the reputation for scholarship which Exeter enjoys at Harvard 
has been unbroken for nearly a century."

(VI.) Hon. Samuel Phillips (son of Samuel and 
Elizabeth: No. 5,) commonly known as Judge Phillips, was 
born Feb. 7, 1750 ; grad. Harv. Coll., 1771 ; a member of the 
Provincial Congress at Watertown, 1775 ; Lieut. -Governor. 
He was the only heir to a large estate ; but with a spirit of 
heroic self-sacrifice, he prevailed on his ftither to divert the 
property, which would legally fall to him, to the founding of the 
Academy at Andover. And it is to this self-sacrificing spirit, 
his benevolent heart, his desire to promote the education and 
good morals of the youth in his community, and check the 
growth of vice which he saw spreading with the advance of

No. 7.] OF REV. GEORGE PHILLIPS. 21 

civilization, by the establishment, in his native town, of a per- 
manent school worthy of the Commonwealth in which he lived, 
that the institution owes its existence. A long distance in 
advance of the people of his day, his deep and far-seeing mind 
conceived the original design, and he cautiously, deliberately and 
wisely drafted the constitution, now in service for both this and 
the Exeter Academy. "This instrument, with its multitudinous 
emendations, erasures, and additions, bears witness to the minute 
care with which the founders sought to formulate the principles 
of the schools. .... No one can read this paper without per-- 
ceiving its weight and perspicuity. It was formerly, and perhaps 
now is, read yearly at the meetings of the board of trustees, and 
drew from one member, who had sat on the board for forty 
3'ears, the remark that its language seemed to him more like 

inspiration than any thing else except the Bible The 

constitution, while defining the courses of study and discipline, the 
duties of trustees and masters — not omitting to caution the trus- 
tees against extravagant entertainment at their yearly dinner — 
lays great emphasis on the conduct of the students, and the 
means to be taken for education in morality and religion, declar- 
ing that 'above all, it is expected that the master's attention to 
the disposition of the minds and morals of the youth under his 
charge will exceed every other care ; well considering that 
though goodness without knowledge (as it respects others) is 
weak and feeble, yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous, 
and that both united form the noblest character, and lay the 
surest foundation 6f usefulness to mankind.' " * 

" Samuel Phillips was an extraordinary man : Init it is difficult 
to give, at this day, a just expression of his character. The 
religious and moral element in it were mixed so intimately, and 
yet so unaflectedly, with the business of the world and the habits 
of active life, that he seemed to be a perfect embodiment of the 

Christian statesman, scholar, and philanthropist I have 

never met, through my whole life, with an individual in whom 
the spirit of Christianity and of good-will to mankind were so 
naturally l)lended with an indomitable energy and enterprise in 



* Harper's Magazine, Vol. 55, p. 564. 



22 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 7. 

active life. He was a leader in tlie clmrch, a leader in the State ; 
the young loved and listened to him, the old consulted and 

deferred to his advice In his capacity for business, 

there was, as it were, an universality or ubiquity. In the town, 
in the Senate, in the courts of justice, in committees of the legis- 
lature, as a referee in cases of great importance, in all other 
associations or aftairs of business, his influence was, as far as 
was possible in respect of any one man, paramount. For twenty 
years he was a member, and for fifteen years president, of the 
Senate of the State, at a period when Statesmen were not made 
out of every sort of wood. He was judge of the Essex Court of 
Common Pleas, a member of every important committee, on 
like occasions a referee, and, at the same time, owned and took 
a general superintendence of two stores, one at Andover, another 
at Methuen, of a saw-mill, a grist-mill, a paper-mill, and a 
powder-mill on the Shawshine, giving to each a sufficient and 
appropriate share of his oversight ; with a spirit subdued by the 
predominancy of the religious sentiment, he was as earnest, 
active and indefatigable in this multitude of his engagements, as 
though this world was everything." * 

"He was religious in study, in trade, in neighborly kindness, 
in domestic life, in politics, in every civil office, and in his zeal 
to promote learning, as well as in public worship or public 
charities. It was emphatically a religious institution which he 
was intent upon establishing ; a religious vitality which he sought 

to breathe into all education within its atmosphere Thus 

Jie was intensely methodical and careful. Any one of his hun- 
dreds of manuscripts now extant, taken up at random, w^ould be 
an illustration of this trait. He erased, he interlined, he changed 
the collocation of words oi" paragraphs, he put in after- thoughts 
and side-thoughts, in a common family letter, with as much 
painstaking as in the draft of a State paper. In writing the most 
familiar communications to his son or his wife, he would copy, 
or give an apology for not cop^nng, as if he would not consent 
to do anything which he was not anxious to do well ; and the

same scrupulous exactness was shown by him through the Avhole 
circuit of his labors, not more as a habit than as a purpose. . . . 
So, too, he was a prodirpj of activity : not of haste and bustle, 
but of rapid, effective lal)or, in a quiet, unruttted spirit. His 
equilibrium was one secret of his momentum. Serene and sunny 
in temperament, he sang with the morning and evening birds. 
Men everywhere said, 'he is too busy,' 'he will soon be spent,' 
but he heard them not ; work had a charm for him — any work, 

all work, if so be it were only good Ho cherished a 

special fondness for the young Companion of Statesmen 

as he was, and a proverb for his gravity, he was never more in 
his element than when conversing with a little child, or dropping 
his goodly maxims, like the gentle dew, into the heart of some 
listening youth." * 

His business ver>' often took him to Boston ; and it was his 
habit after the close of the fatiguing labors of the day in that 
place, to mount his horse and ride to Andover, arriving at home 
about midnight. His friends remonstrated against this impru- 
dence, l)ut he gave them little heed, feeling that all available time 
should be devoted to useful labor. This exposure of his health,

tion to the extensive round of his business duties, doubtless laid 
the foundation, as is almost invariably the case under like 
circumstances, for the physical troul)les which terminated his 
days of great usefulness, when not much past what is usually 
considered middle life. He left by will, four thousand dollars 
to l)e added to the fund for maintaining instruction in divinity in 
connection with the Andover Academy. Although his father, 
Hon. Samuel Phillips the elder, in connection with the brother, 
Dr. John Phillips, of Exeter, is regarded, and not improperly, 
as founder of Phillips Academy on account of his magnificent 
life-gifts and bequests ; yet, to style Hon. Samuel Phillips the 
younger, as the founder of that institution, while doing no injus- 
tice to his worthy parent or liberal-minded uncle, is but yielding 
to him the honor to which he is justly entitled. In the connec- 
tion of the two Samuels, father and son, with the establishment

(V.) Hon. William Phillips (son of Samuel and 
Hannah: No. 4,) was born July 6, 1722. The following brief 
sketch, given in Bond's Wafertoum, shows something of his life 
and character : "At the age of fifteen years he went to Boston, 
and became an apprentice to Edward Bromfield, Esq., a highly 
respectable merchant of that town, son of Hon. EdM^ard Brom- 
field, for many years one of his Majesty's Council in the Province 
of Massachusetts Bay, and a great grandson of Rev. John Wil- 
son, the first minister of Boston. At the termination of his 
apprenticeship he married, June 13, 1744, o. s., Abigail 
Bromfield, eldest daughter of his late master, and engaged in 
mercantile pursuits, in which he was very successful. By this 
marriage a grt.-gr. son of the first minister of Watertown was 
united with a grt.-gr. dau. of the first minister of Boston. He 
was for many years a deacon of the Old South Church, and was 
repeatedly elected representative and State senator. ' He took a 
decided and active part in the proceedings which preceded and 
attended the Revolution ; was on many of the committees 
appointed by the town of Boston in those trjing times, and often 
contributed liljerally of his estate to promote the measures which 
issued in the establishment of our independence.' He was one 
of the committee sent to demand of Gov. Hutchinson that the 
tea should be sent back to England ; was rejected as a Councillor 
by Gov. Gage ; was a member of the Convention for framing 
the Constitution of the Commonwealth, and that of adopting the 
Constitution of the United States. Upon the outbreak of the 
Revolution, he moved his family to Norwich, Conn., where they 
remained while the British had possession of Boston, occupying 
the Arnold mansion, the same house in which the traitor, Bene- 
dict Arnold, was born." He gave by his last will five thousand 
dollars to Philhps Academy, Andover. He died Jan. 15, 1804, 
aged 81. Children:

(VI.) Lieut. Gov. William Phillips (son of William 
and Abigail: No. 9,) was born March 30, 17.50; of Boston; 
deacon of the Old South Church, representative, and, from 1812 
to 1823, Lieut. -Governor ; from 1804 until his death in 1827, 
president of the Massachusetts Bank ; presidential elector at 
large* in 1820 when the vote of the State was cast for Mr. 
Monroe. To the already very liberal endowments of Phillips 
Academy, Andover, he added the sum of fifteen thousand dollars, 
and gave ten thousand dollars to Andover Theological Seminary. 
His generous gifts, distributed among about a dozen worthy 
objects, amounted to sixty-two thousand dollars. 

"He came into possession of an ample fortune, to the manage- 
ment of which, and to the duties of his family and of friendship, 
to the service of the public, and to deeds of benevolence, he was 
thenceforth chiefly devoted. He was eminently a domestic man, 
fond of retirement, and of the society of his fomily and intimate 
friends. Yet he was not averse to the calls of public duty." 
The Rev. Dr. Wisner in preaching his funeral sermon said : 
"Scarcely a measure has been adopted or an association formed 
in this city and vicinity for the improvement of the physical, the 
intellectual, the moral or the spiritual condition of men, which 
has not received his co-operation and liberal support." 

He married Sept. 13, 1774, Miriam Mason, born June 
16, 1754, 3d dau. of Hon. Jonathan Mason of Boston. She 
died May 7, 1823, "greatly lamented." He died Saturday

might have made him the foremost jurist and greatest lawyer 
of his time, but he gave up all hope of popularity or personal 
emolument from the practice of law, and made it his exclusive 
life work to plead, on the public rostrum and at every favor- 
able opportunity, the cause of the oppressed, of every nation, 
creed and color. Sympathy with the classes whose cause he 
advocated led him to give freely of his means to the poor and 
distressed. It is said that no really needy and deserving man 
or woman ever appealed to him in vain ; yet, his gifts were 
bestowed "so silently that no records remain on earth save in 
the hearts who love him." The following extracts give a very 
brief but clear portrayal of his life and character. 

"Especially may the colored men rejoice that it pleased 
God to raise up in their behalf this inspired advocate of their 
inalienable rights, this terrible denunciator of their wrongs, 
this sincere sympathizer with their sufferings, this brave, true, 
stalwart frieud. Their rights vindicated before the world, 
their wrongs wiped out, their sufferings soothed and healed, 
their race set free, enfranchised, educated, elevated, loug will 
the colored race remember — how can they ever forget — their 
debt of gratitude to Wendell Phillips, to whom was due, as 
much as to any man on earth, this revolution in their lot. . . . 
. . . Not to the needs of his own country alone could "Wendell 
Phillips limit his sympathy. The whole world had no wrong 
which did not set his soul on fire, to hate it always and abate 

it if he could The terrible evils of intoxication led no 

man to be a stronger advocate of prohibition than Wendell 
Phillips. The rights and interests of the working classes 

found in him a devoted friend His intense earnestness 

carried conviction home to his hearers, his tenderness touched 
their hearts with irresistible sympathy, his pathos moved them 
to tears, his vehemence carried them on with contagious fire, 
his commanding presence filled them with respect, his simplicity 
and directness and almost alisence of manner left them in 
doubt whether art were perfect or wholly absent. . . . Gifted 
by nature with a voice of exquisite smoothness, sweetness, 
flexibility and grace, and yet of wonderful power when roused 
in some great cause, the whole man grew instinct with the fire 
and force of impassioned oratory ; aud he swept his audience 
almost at his will, yet always without apparent effort, through 
the varying emotions which he sought to stir Strong 



34 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 13. 

faith and deep piety marked his walk through life. His fellow- 
citizens have always respected him for every domestic virtue, 
and for a grandly stoical simplicity of life. Full of the gen- 
erous spirit of self-sacrifice, seeking no public honor, devoting 
his life and his great powers to the cause of the oppressed 
even to his own great loss, standing firm against any and all 
injustice like the rugged hills of his native State, volcanic in 
his outbursts of wrath against oppression, Wendell Phillips 
stands as the strongest type of the fearless, uncompromising 
intolerant New England reformer." * 

" No one had probably addressed so many audiences or 
charmed so many ears and fired so many breasts by his wonder- 
ful eloquence. . . . His first appearance as an orator was at a 
meeting in Faneuil Hall in 1837, called to protest against the 
cruel murder of Elijah P. Lovejoy at Alton, 111., for publishing 

an anti-slavery paper James T. Austin, attorney 

general, made an apologetic speech, condemning Lovejoy and 
almost justifying the mob for his murder. Then "Wendell 
Phillips fired with a righteous indignation, mounted the plat- 
form amidst objections and efforts to suppress him, and poured 
forth a torrent of burning eloquence. This young lawyer, 
without experience and Avithout a name in his profession, met 
and vanquished, routed and annihilated the official chief of the 

bar of Massachusetts His eloquence was not of the 

grand style, majestic and imposing like that of Webster, witti 
solemn periods and elaborate rhetoric. It was impetuous, 
swift and scathing, but with the beauty of a noble simplicity, 
a clear, trumpet-like voice, manner and gesture full of force 
and grace. Throughout his life his habits and manners were 
those of a patrician, kindly, neither arrogant nor obtrusively 
affable, but with a dignified reserve which commanded some 
measure of deference from all who came into contact with him. 
.... He was the greatest orator and agitator of his time, 
and as such he did a work so great, and so associated his 
name with a reform whose influence on the destinies of man- 
kind cannot be overrated, that his failings may well be and 
doubtless will be forgotten, and his name will live in honor." f

Some of his most greatly admired lectures, such as " Lost 
Arts" and " Dauiel O'Counell," it is said, were never written. 
The first of these was repeatedly delivered for thirty years 
without losing its freshness ; and his efforts in preparing the 
other, which he did not expect would gain a reputation, con- 
sisted in getting together ' ' material enough to enable him to 
talk an hour on the subject he had in hand." 

He married, Oct. 12, 1837, Ann Terry Greene, dau. of 
Benjamin Greene of Boston. There is a little story told, on 
pretty good authority, concerning their marriage. She was 
to attend a convention in Albany and Mr. Sumner was ex- 
pected to act as her escort ; but he being unable to go, Mr. 
Phillips accepted the trust "and lost his heart to her before 
he got back." After several unsuccessful efforts to gain an 
interview, she being in feeble health, he at last succeeded, 
having " almost broke his way to her and offered her his 
hand. She said she would never marry a man unless he would 
swear eternal enmity to slavery ; but it was not necessary 
for Mr. Phillips to take that oath — he had already sworn 
it in his heart. So they were married." To his wife, who 
was always an invalid, he was chivalrously devoted, regula- 
ting his entire life by affection and consideration for her, 
and his best acts he ascribed to her influence. He always 
resided in Boston with the exception of one year in Florence. 
He died Saturday evening, Feb. 2, 1884, at fifteen minutes 
past six, after a short but painful illness. Two days before his 
death, during a brief interval of rest, after an agony of pain, 
he said to his physician, " I have no fear of death ; I am wil- 
ling to die to-day as well as anjf time, but for my poor wife." 
About an hour before he breathed his last, on reviving from a 
fainting spell, he said, " I'm dying; Pm dying." He did not 
rally, but continued to sink slowly and passed away "as 
quietly as if he was just going to sleep." He left no children.

44 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 20. 

OXFORD BRAXCH OF THE WATERTOWN FAMILY. 

No. 20. 

(III.) Joseph Phillips (j^od of Theophilus and Mary: 
No. 19,) born Dec. 4, 1702. He married Ruth Towne, and 
settled in Oxford, Mass., locating, as nearly as can l)e ascer- 
tained, in the present limits of Auburn,* on Prospect Hill, an 
elevation of beautiful and fertile table land, and one of the 
pleasantest rural spots in Worcester County. The hill com- 
mands an extensive and charming view of the surrounding 
region, including in its range of vision, a pleasant succession of 
mountain, hill and valley ; also, the now flourishing city of 
Worcester, and glimpses of several villages. He owned several 
other tracts of land in Oxford and vicinity, but this, doubtless, 
is the place on which he settled. The late Col. Edward Phillips 
of Sturbriclge, a great-grandson, had a fixed impression that 
his grandfather, Dea. Jonathan Phillips, the oldest son of 
Joseph, was born on Prospect Hill. Col. Phillips also regarded 
this place as the old family homestead. After his death, this 
farm was owned and occupied by his son, Israel Phillips, and 
later, by Simon, son of Israel. At the time of Israel's death 
the farm contained, by estimation, eighty acres, but was prob- 
ably somewhat larger. At the death of Simon the ownership 
of the fiirm passed out of the Phillips name, having been owned 
in the family nearly ninety years. The house still standing is 
said, by one who once lived there, to have been the same one 
occupied by his gr.-son, Simon ; and a little to the rear there 
was remaining, a few years since, the foundation and cellar of 
another building, supposed to be the original home. The house 
is about one mile from the station of North Oxford Mills, on a 
branch of the Boston and Albany R. R., and, to any of the 
hundreds of his descendants who feel a special interest in the old 
homestead of one of their early ancestors, a visit to the place on

a pleasant summer day might well repay the eflbrt. The farm is 
the same one lately owned and occupied by AVm. D. Dalrjnnple. 

His wife died Jul}' 4, 1760. He married (2d) Dec. 10, 
1760, Mrs. Bathsheba Towne of Oxford. He died April 
23, 1771, " in the 69th year of his age." 

It is impossible, at this day, to give anj^thing like a personal 
description of him ; but, from the fact that he left the vicinity 
of his father's home when a young man, and sought a home for 
himself, in what had been so recently an unbroken wilderness, 
where it required constant toil and hardship to secure the neces- 
saries of life, we must conclude that he was a man of vioor, 
energy and perseverance ; qualities which have been inherited 
in a large degree by a good number of his descendants. His 
place of burial is not known. In the old Auburn Cemetery, 
near the church, several of his descendants are known to have 
been buried, though not a monument has been erected in the 
yard by friend or relative, to mark the last resting-place of any 
of them. 

The descendants have, in years past, usually been somewhat 
above the average size, not tending much to corpulence, ])ut of 
large frame rather than fleshy, and with features rather heavily 
marked. Most of them have had " a keen appreciation of wit 
and humor," and heartily enjoyed a sharp joke. Not many of 
them have been graduates of colleges or entered the professions. 
The greater part have lived in farming communities, and more 
have followed farming than any other occupation. A good 
number rendered efficient aid to then* countiy during the war 
of the Rebellion ; some of whom extended their service from 
their enlistment in the early days of the war to its close. It is 
to be regretted that the materials are not at hand for more 
extended sketches of many worthy individuals of whom but 
brief mention is now made. Many of them have l:»een men of 
integrity, of exemplary lives, and of firm and honorable princi- 
ples. Children, all born in Oxford :

(IV.) Dea. Jonathan Phillips (sou of Joseph and 
Ruth: No. 20,) was born Aug. 12, 1732; a farmer in Stur- 
briclge, and deacon of the Baptist Church in that town. He 
and his brothers, Joseph and Israel, were in a detachment of 
thirty-four soldiers that marched from Oxford, Aug. 18, 1758, 
for the relief of Fort William Henry, on the shore of Lake 
George. He Avas the first settler in his immediate neighbor- 
hood, and his extensive farm, located at the head of Cedar Pond, 
two miles north of Sturbridge Centre, was owned and occupied 
by himself and his descendants for one hundred and twenty 
years. Perhaps no place in America has been held as a home- 
stead by any family of this name for a greater length of 
time unless possibly we except the Andover homestead. The 
buildings stand in a very secluded place, nestled away on the 
westerly side of the valley, at a considerable distance from any 
traveled road ; while a little farther up the valley, toward the 
north, stood the old saw-mill, where several generations took

the place was last visited by the writer, in 1865, though not

neat and commodious brick residence, erected close by, by his 
grandson, Col. Edward Phillips, which, though unfavorably 
situated for attracting attention and scarcely to be seen from the

his services were often deemed requisite in the neighboring 
towns. At the age of fifty he was stricken with a shock of 
palsy which so paralyzed him that he was unable to walk, or to 
talk so as to be understood for about two years. On the return 
of health, he found his memory was so impaired that it was 
impossible for him to pursue his favorite calling. Being anxious 
to resume practice, he commenced reading medicine again. 
After reading for some time, the recollection of it flashed upon 
his mind; he remembered that he had read it all before, and 
afterwards was able to attend to the wants of the sick, most of 
the time, till the very close of his life. He bore arms in the

leader of the church choir. He commenced his public singing 
in Charlton Church, when nine 3^ears old, sustaining his part, 
the alto, alone ; and was connected with a choir nearly all the 
time for fifty j^ears, until his voice failed from disease in the 
throat. He was ever a man of few words, liut was always a 
lover and promoter of good ihorals, and was one of the original 
founders of the Evangelical Cong. Church and Parish in West- 
boro, and that, "at a time when most bitter opposition served 
to root more deeply the principle that led to outward action." 

Up to the age of eight^^-seven, he was able to superintend his 
farm, and to work many hours each day in his garden among 
the flowers, which had ever been his delight. The portrait pre- 
pared for this work was from a photograph taken when he was 
eighty years old. He married Oct.- 12, 1818, Ann Maria 
Brigham, born July 14, 1794, daughter of Hon. Elijah and 
Sarah (Ward) Brigham, and granddaughter of Gen. Artemas 
Ward. He was one who always made his home happy, and 
their married life included sixty-one and one-half years. He 
passed away at half-past one on the morning of May 1, 1880, 
and she on the 14th of Dec. following. Children : 
1. Elijah Brigham, b. in Sutton, Aug, 20, 1819. Beginning in 




1839, his life thus far has been almost wholly occupied with 
the management of railroads, and he has held high official con- 
nection with no less than eight different railroad corporations, 
some of them among the most important in the United States.

'' He commenced his service as railroad employ^ at a period 
when railroads were in their infancy, and has risen in reo-ular 
order up to his present important rank as president of one of 
the oldest and most influential railroad corporations in the 
State. Following his railroad history, it will be seen that in 
point of date of service he ranks every other railroad superin- 
tendent and president in the country. His first service was as 
clerk in the employ of the Boston and Worcester Railroad Cor- 
poration, in October, 1839. In June, 1843, he was advanced 
to the position of master of transportation, then, as now, an 
important post, as the increase of freight on our Massachusetts 
railroads demanded a separate department from that of gen- 
eral superintendent, and the Boston and Worcester Railroad 
direction was the first to recognize this. As master of trans- 
portation he remained until September, 1852, when he was 
elected, over all others, to the superintendency of the Cleveland 
and Toledo Railroad, then one of the most advanced railroads 
of the west ; and here it may be pertinent to remark that 
in the early history of western railroads, the management 
almost invariably selected for the principal offices those who 
had been trained on the Boston and Worcester Railroad. This 
office Mr. Phillips filled satisfactorily till September, 1858, 
when a change took place in the Boston and Worcester Railroad, 
and he was requested to return to take the superintendency of 
that road. This office he held till October, 1865, when the 
west made another demand, and he was elected president of the 
Southern Michigan and Northern Indiana Railroad Corporation, 
the stock being largely held by New England parties. In 
October, 1870, the Wisconsin Central Railroad started up one 
of the most important trunk lines of the northwest, and Mr. 
Phillips was solicited to take charge of its interests, both in 
construction and in its operation — a trust which he executed 
with eminent ability as well as satisfaction to his board of 
directors. In July, 1878, he retired, after arduous service, to 
obtain needed rest ; but he was destined to remain idle but a 
short time. The Eastern Railroad complication at this time 
had reached a crisis ; a competent president was demanded, 
and in 1879 Mr. Phillips was the one selected. His record 
and his services as president of that corporation began a new 
era in the history of that road. His labors were brilliant and 
unremitting, and gave him a reputation which could not be

disputed, at least, for executive ability and fair independence. 
Leaving that road, be took tbe presidency of the narrow gauge 
road in Missouri, of which he is still president. In November, 
1883, after the death of William B. Stearns, president of the 
Fitchburg Railroad Corporation, the directors cast about for a 
new president, and, out of a large number to select from, they 
decided to take Mr. Phillips. He has peculiar qualifications 
for the office, as he is familiar with all the details of railroad 
operation and management, and is certainly giving character 
to this corporation, which is one of the most important in the 
State." * While at the West he resided in Cleveland, Ohio,

(V.) Dea. John Phillips (son of Jonathan and Rachel : 

No. 21.) born June 29, 17 GO; a farmer in Sturbridge ; served 
for a time in the American army during the Revolutionary War. 
He was deacon of the Baptist Church in Sturbridge for sixty- 
four years, represented the town in the Legislature twice, — in 
1815 and 1816, and for a considerable time held a commission 
as justice of the peace, and his papers contain the records of 
twelve or fifteen couples whom he united in marriage. He 
married, May 25,* 1785, L-ove Perry, born June 3, 1767, 
daughter of Jonathan and Martha Perry of Sturbridge. with 
whom he lived sixty-four years, she dying Aug. 8, 1849, at the 
age of eighty-two. He lived on the homestead farm, with the 
exception of very brief intervals, the whole of his long life, 
where he died Feb. ^h^ 1865, at the extreme age of 104 years 
and eight months. 

He voted for George Washington at the first presidential 
election held in the United States, and for Abraham Lincoln at 
the election in Nov., 1864, when 104 years of age, and with one 
exception (I860,) at ever}^ intermediate presidential election. 
Shortl}^ after voting the last time, he received from President 
Lincoln the following complimentary letter : 

"Executive Mansion, WAsmNGTON, 

Nov. 21, 1864. 
"My Dear Sir: 

" I have heard of the incident at the polls in your tOAvu, iu which

56 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 24. 

you bore so honored a part, and I take the liberty of writing to you 
to express my personal gratitude for the compliment paid me by the 
suffrage of a citizen so venerable. 

" The example of such devotion to civic duties in one whose days 
have already extended an average life-time beyond the Psalmist's 
limit, cannot but be valuable and fruitful. It is not for myself only, 
but for the country which you have in your sphere served so long and 
so well, that I thank you. 

Your friend and servant, 

A. LINCOLN." 

On the 29th of June, 18(i0, a large number of his friends and 
relatives gathered at the Baptist Church in Fiskdale, about four 
miles from his residence, to celebrate the lOOth anniversary of 
his birth. As a part of the exercises he oflered a prayer and 
made the following address : 

"My friends, I give you thanks for this opportunity of seeing so 
many of you present, and for the attention bestowed upon me ; but I 
feel unworthy to receive it. As I have been requested to offer prayer 
on this occasion, I will first make a few remarks. For seventy-five 
years I have been a professor of religion, and I have endeavored to 
adorn my profession. I am now an old child — broken down — 100 
years for you to look upon. I feel that I am a child in knowledge 
and in everything else. My creed consists of four particular points ; 
— 1st, the goodness of God ; ■2d, the divinity of our Saviour ; 3d, the 
power and reality of revealed religion ; 4th, the depravity of man. 
Here I stand, a monument of God's goodness." 

When al)out fifty years of age, anticipating the decline of life, 
he wrote a letter to his oldest son, who was away from home 
engaged in teaching, requesting the son so to arrange his plans 
as to come home soon and remain, in order to take care of him 
in his old age. The son obediently complied with the father's 
request ; but, after the lapse of upwards of fifty additional 
years, and while the father was still living, the son jocosely 
intimated to the compiler of this record, with the usual pleasant 
twinkle of his eye, that he regarded the arrangement as some- 
what premature, and more especially in view of the fact that he 
hardly needed the strong arm of his son to sustain him till near 



No. 24.] OF REV. GEORGE PHILLIPS. 57 

the close of his protracted life, having retained his native vigor 
till it seemed uncertain which of the two would be likely first 
to require an arm of support in their declining years. 

He was well formed, strong and vigorous. In his prime, his 
height was six feet, and, after sixteen years of age, his weight 
was always about two hundred pounds. At the age of eighty, 
after having used glasses for thirty years, he was able to leave 
them off and read without them till within a few years of his 
death. AVlien in his 100th year he was summoned to Worcester 
as a witness at court, and was able to recoonize his sig-nature 
and give his evidence with clearness and distinctness. Next to 
a strong and enduring constitution, his long and even life is 
attributable to his hal)its of strict temperance. "His manner 
of living was always plain and frugal, laboring hard as a farmer, 
but not to excess, and not to late hours, usually retiring early 
and rising early. He was temperate in eating, drinking, sleep- 
ing, workino- and in all thinos."

highly respected, and was continually honored hj being called 
to fill the various town offices, — moderator, selectman, assessor, 
school committee, and all the minor offices, and was often placed 
on important committees. In his early life he was employed 
considerably in teaching school. He was elected three times to 
represent the town in the State Legislature, held a commission 



No. 25.] OF REV. GEORGE PHILLIPS. 59 

as justice of the peace for about thirty years, and that of coroner 
as long or longer, and was colonel of the home militia. When 
Southbridge petitioned the Legislature for a part of the territory 
of Sturbridge, which they tried twice, he was sent both times 
as agent of the town to aid their representative in opposing the 
petition. He was elected, in 1832, one of a committee of four,* 
to effect" a design for the Worcester Manual Labor High School, 
an institution out of which grew the present Worcester Academy, 
and was afterwards one of its trustees. He was a person of 
large frame, in his prime upwards of six feet in height, naturall}^ 
very erect and of dignified bearing : but he fell, while repairing 
his house, in 1855, a distance of some fourteen feet and struck 
on his head, producing an injury of the spine from which he 
never recovered. After this he was never al:)le to carry his head 
erect, and it doubtless had the effect of shortening his life by 
some years. He had large clear black eyes and heavy features, 
but a pleasant countenance. He was, like other members of 
the family, inclined to jocularity, was agreeable and courteous 
in his manners and entertaining in his conversation. 

He married April 7, 1812, Mary Newell f of Sturbridge, 

born Feb. 14, 1787. 'She died Jan. 28, 1866. He died Dec.

wisely left to their discretion, under the general direction that the instruction should 
be of the tirst order ; that strict moral aud religious character should be attained ; and 
that every facility should be afforded for productive labor, to the end that education 
should be good but not expensive. — Hist, of Worcester. Wm. Lincoln : p. 308.

serving his time and reaching his majority, he started lor Oneida 
Co., N. Y., on horseback, his sole capital being his horse, and 
twenty-five dollars in money. At Whitestown, X. Y. , he became 
acquainted with Sophronia Joslyn (daughter of John Jos- 
lyn, formerly of Tyringham, ]Mass., of Xorman French descent), 
to whom he was married Jan. 17, 1817. After a few years 
they removed to Canastota, Madison Co., N. Y., where he 
carried on a large business, in blacksmithing and wagon-making, 
and achieved a handsome property. In Oct., 1849, the family 
removed to Lake Mills, Jetierson Co., Wisconsin, where he 
lived, with the exception of a year or so, at Madison, Wis., 
until his death, Sept. 21, 18(35. She died Feb. 23, 1884. His 
daughter, Mrs. H. P. Eaton, to whom the compiler is indebted 
for this record of her father's family, writes : 

"He was a man of sound judgment, even temper, strong 
affections and friendships, universally beloved and respected, 
always greatly interested in all matters of public interest. 
Judge Spencer of Syracuse, N. Y., recently told my brother 
that the first person he ever heard, urge the necessity of free 
schools and a thorough education of all classes, was our fiither. 
He was an earnest anti-slavery man from the beginning, a man 
of l)road intelligence, who kept his interest in all the great 
questions of the day, up to the day of his death. 

''Our branch has the light brown hair which our father 
inherited from his mother's side of the house ; though some of 
us take the dark brown hair from the Joslyn side. All of us 
have many strong Phillips traits in common ; among them a keen 
appreciation of wit and humor. All are inveterate jokers, as 
was our father, and all dearly love a good horse, — true to the 
Greek origin of our name. Xone of us care much for glitter or 
general society ; we are strong in our prejudices, likes and 
dislikes. It is interesting to trace heredity extending even to 
chirography. I have been surprised to find with the majority 
of us such strong reseml)lances in penmanship to others and 
remote members of the Phillips family." Children :

Respecting his character, &c., his sister fondly writes: — 
" My brother Charley was one of the very best specimens of 
the Phillips family that I ever met. All that I could say would 
not do him justice nor convey to you an idea of what a grand 
good man he was ; genial, witty, of sound judgment, of broad 
charity, one of 'God's own men,' as I've heard others call 
him. I have often remarked, and so have others, his strong 
resemblance in figure and appearance to Wendell Phillips of 
Boston. He was the recognized leader of the Republican 
party in his county. He served several terms in the Assembly, 
and was State Senator-elect at the time of his death. The 
Democratic party have a majority in that county of about 
1600, but he was elected by over loOO majority. He was 
indefatigable in working for the educational interests of the 
town and county, and is deeply mourned throughout the State. 
He had kept the farm upon which the family settled in 1849, 
and had become a large stock raiser, making a specialty of 
Alderney cattle and carriage horses."

amount of his legal business soon became so extensive that he 
was compelled to give up his former occupation, and devote 
himself wholly to his new calling. Incessant application to this 
business, confinement in the impure air of the court room, and 
want of sufficient exercise, seriously and permanently injured 
his health, which he made repeated but unsuccessful efibrts to

Leicester to learn the trade of card-maker ; but the company 
failed before his time expired, and we next lind him laboring at 
his trade at South Hadley, Mass., and later at Lansingburg, 
N. Y. He was the first stage driver on what was called "the 
east side mail line" from Springfield to Brattleboro, Vt., driv- 
ing from South Hadley to Springfield. The first three years of 
his married life were spent in Greenfield ; then he moved to 
Hartford, Conn., and took charge of a card factory, for two j^ears 
at a salary of two hundred dollars a year. He then removed to 
Springfield, and with others there commenced the manufacture 
of cards under the firm name of Bowdoin, Phillips & Co. 
Four years after, the company obtained a charter under the 
name of the Springfield Card Manufacturing Co., of which he 
continued as the superintendent. He was chosen 1st Lieut, of 
the Springfield Horse Guards, and commissioned by Gov. Levi 
Lincoln, and was twice chosen delegate from Springfield to the 
Democratic State Convention. His health failing, in 1830, he 
sold out his interest in the card company, and moved on to a 
farm in Greenfield. In 1835, having regained his health, he 
removed to Willimansett, near Springfield, as superintendent 
of the Willimansett Manufacturing Co., of which the late Hon.

Stephen C. Bemis was agent and manager, and served in the 
employ of Mr. Bemis and his sons in various positions, more or 
less every year, for upwards of forty-five years. For two 
years he had charge of a hardware store for Mr. Bemis in Troy, 
N. Y., with a $10,000 stock of goods; but this enterprise 
proved a foilure, and fortune set him down at poverty's gate. 
So reduced was he at this time, the spring of 1843, that, with 
wife, six children and all his earthlj" possessions, he left the 
city for his native town on a one-horse wagon. This was a 
heavy blow to bear ; the cloud that overshadowed him was 
black indeed, but he passed through the trial manfully. Pos- 
sessed with a remarkably hopeful spirit, good health and strong 
hands, he entered anew the great battle of life, fortune smiled, 
and he not only kept the wolf from the door, but earned and still 
enjoys an easy competency. His employer, the late Mr. Bemis 
of Springfield, was once heard to remark to a friend, "I have 
great confidence in the honesty of Mr. Phillips, why ! I would 
trust him with inillions of uncounted gold J" In religion, a 
strong believer in the final restoration to peace and happiness 
of the whole family of man ; in politics, a staunch Jacksonian 
democrat; a Free Mason sixty j^ears. 

His son, Dea. Charles C. 'Phillips, to whom the compiler is 
indebted for the greater part of this sketch, wrote in 1878, "he 
is nearly eighty-one and has just returned from a commercial 
trip embracing the New England States and the State of New 
York. He is probably the oldest traveling agent and the best 
known of any in the country, having been on the road some 
thirty-five 3'ears." After the above was wi"itten he continued 
to travel for two or three years, but has since retired from the 
road, and has been residing with his daughter Caroline, at his 
homestead in Greenfield, where 1885, he was still enjoying a 
comfortable life. The above autograph was written when he 
was eighty-seven years of age. The portrait prepared for this 
work is from a photograph taken at the age of eighty. 

He married Dorothy Sage, born in Berlin, Conn., Feb. 
22, 1797, died in Bernardston, Mass., Feb. 15, 1866. Her

She had the reputation of l)eing an excellent dairy woman, her 
butter and cheese always being prized as first class. In confir- 
mation of this, she at one time received a testimonial from Hon. 
Charles Allen of Worcester, who had long been one of her 
customers, in the form of a valuable present, accompanied by a 
highly complimentary letter. She was very large, and weighed 
at sixty years of age, two hundred and forty pounds. To the 
children who were entrusted to her care immediately upon 
entering this household, she ever acted the part of a faithful 
mother. Soon after the death of her father, in 1826, Mr. Phil- 
lips bought the farm near the centre village, which had been 
owned and occupied by the Harwood family for about seventy- 
five years, and they moved on to it in 1828, and here they both

this occupation and was for some yeai's employed in tlie ser- 
vice of tlie Adams Express Company in Hartford, Conn., and 
in New Yorli City. He afterwards engaged in mercantile 
pursuits in the latter place, and later in Arkansas, to which 
place he went in 1865. He was extremely quiet and unas- 
suming in his general conduct, but he met with that bitter 
opposition which has too often been the lot of the northern 
emigrant to the south. Consequently the unsettled state of 
the community led him to enter actively into political and 
military life. When attempts were made in 1868 and 1869 to 
revolutionize the State Government, he was appointed to the 
command of the State Militia, with title of Major-General. 
During this trying period his life was hunted by the outlaws 
of that region, and he received several bullet wounds in at- 
tempts made to assassinate him. After this he was clerk of 
the Chancery Court for five years. He was United States 
Marshal from 1876 to 1880 for the western district of Arkan- 
sas, which includes the Indian Territory, and comprises a 
larger area than any other district, and in the amount of 
business done, money expended and responsibility cast upon 
the officers of the Court, said to be the most important in the 
United States. At the close of his term of office in 1880, the 
Arkansas Bepublican said of him : " Gen. Upham has man- 
aged the Marshal's office of his district better than it has 
ever been managed. A better, more able, honest and efficient 
officer does not live." 

' ' Upham is a man of pure private and public character ; a 

man who can be used by no one His character, 

ability and peculiar fitness for this position are known and 
admitted by all. The way he has admiuistered the office for 
four years has forced praises and commenclatious from even 
the unwilling. He — with the aid of a judge and district 
attorney who have been faithful— has given the people of the 
Indian country peace and securitj' against the eflbrts of inter- 
lopers, murderers, outlaws and villains of all kinds, until life 
and propertj^ are measurably secui'e in that country." 

For a number of years he was in the practice of purchasing 
at the east and transporting to Arkansas choice animals of 
pure Jersey stock, for the growth and development of Avhich 
that section seems to have a peculiar fitness, and his herd 
and those of his customers included some of the best speci- 
mens of breeding stock of this kind which could be obtained 
in New England. After retiring from the position of U. S. 
Marshal, his health commenced to fail and he came on a trip 
to New England, hoping to recuperate amid the scenes of 
his native town; but, though struggling manfully against 
disease, he continued slowly to decline and died at the home- 
stead in Dudley, Nov. 18, 1882. He m. Miss Lucy K. Nash

his house, and entered at first gradually, and after a few years 
extensively into the grain business. In this business he has 
met with encouraging success, and enjoys the reputation of an 
honorable dealer. In 1881, he built a large dam, five hundred 
feet in length, one-fourth mile lower down, and erected a com- 
modious building for a grist-mill and saw-mill. In 1883, he 
bought a tract of seventy-five acres of land with the purpose

engaged in the express business, then in its infancy, and which 
grew during bis connection with it to the very extensive pro- 
portions which it attained in later years. His business eflbrts 
were here rewarded with abundant success. He was the Hart- 
ford agent of the Adams Express Company for several years 
following its incorporation, but for some years past has not 
been actively engaged in that business. For many years he 
has been prominently identihed with several of the principal

and community, ever watching carefully for the best interests

of the city and the institutions with which he has been con- 
nected. Being one of the first to engage in the express 
business, it is perhaps, not too much to say that the implicit 
confidence which the general public have in the express com- 
panies of the day, is owing, in no small degree, to the firm and 
honoraljle business principles which it was his constant object 
to initiate into the system at its commencement. On many 
occasions he has been elevated to positions of trust by the votes 
of the citizens of Hartford ; he represented the city in the Gen- 
eral Assembly at New Haven during the session of 1854, and 
was Alderman in 1859. He has been director or trustee of each 
of the following companies and associations, several of which 
positions he continues to occupy : Hartford Savings Bank and 
Building Association, City Fire Ins. Co., Charter Oak Life Ins. 
Co., Hartford Steam Boiler Ins. Co., Orient Fire Ins. Co., 
American National Bank, ^Mechanics Savings Bank (also vice- 
president of the latter). National Screw Co., Weed Sewing 
Machine Co., AYillimantic Linen Co., Theological Institute of 
Conn., Hartford Female Seminary, Hartford Branch of the Am. 
Tract Society, and Cedar Hill Cemetery. He was a member of 
the building committee for the erection, in 1869, of the mag- 
nificent business block on Main Street, of the Charter Oak Life 
Insurance Co. He was one of the signers of the call for the 
first Kepublican mass meeting ever held in Connecticut, and 
which resulted in the formation of the Republican party of that 
State. Ever since that time he has been a member of that party, 
an out-spoken advocate of its principles, and usually a firm 
and ardent supporter of its candidates. Being a man of warm 
heart and genial disposition, and of a peculiarly practical 
benevolence, he has gained a great number of friends among 
all classes who will cherish the memory of his many deeds 
of kindness. More than one is al)le to say that the business 
and social standing to which he has happily attained, is owing 
largely to the encouragement which he received in earlier days 
from Mr. Phillips. But those who have the best claim to the 
afiections of their fellow-men are sometimes the ones who sufier 
the heaviest blows at the hands of Providence, and so it has

been with him. He and his wife have been blessed with five 
happy children, but they have been removed by death, at inter- 
vals of some years, till all are gone. He married April 6, 
1836, Mary M. Forbush of Westboro, born Feb. 10, 1812. 
Children :

Aug. 19, 1843. 

2. Daniel Austin, b. in Westboro, Feb. 14, 1840 ; d. in Hartford, 

March 22, 1861. He was of quick and clear mind, of good 
judgment, accurate in forming conclusions, and with an apti- 
tude for business which was more than an average for those 
of his age. He was of a somewhat humorous disposition, a 
pleasant and jovial companion, and had a large number of 
warm friends. For considerable time previous to his death, he 
was clerk in the office of the Adams Express Co. in Hartford. 

3. Henry Curtis, b. in Hartford, Sept. 24, 1843. He was in the 

service of the Adams Express Co. for several years as mes- 
senger on the railroad between Hartford and Providence, and 
in various other capacities. Failing health compelled him to 
-give up active employment. He was generous and hopeful in 
his nature, a cheerful and pleasant companion. He d. July

and Switzerland. She d. while on a visit to friends in Albany, 
N. y., Jan. 29, 1865. She was noticeable for her amiable 
qualities, being possessed of a lovely countenance, a winning 
manner and a sweet disposition. She was a light in the house- 
hold, and a gentle and confiding friend among her associates.

employers. Previous to his last sickness he was employed as 
clerk in the office of the Charter Oak Life Insurance Co. The

(VI.) Moses Dresser Phillips (son of Daniel and Abi- 
gail : No. 41,) born May 15, 1813. Not being of a sufficiently 
robust constitution to endure the labors of the farm, he left the 
paternal homestead, Sept. 18, 1832, being nineteen years of 
age, and went to Worcester j then a thriving village of four 
thousand inhabitants, where he engaged as a clerk in the book- 
store of Clarendon Harris. In 1835 he went into partnership 
with William Lincoln, Esq., and with him followed the business 
of bookseller and publisher for some years. But desiring a 
larger field for his labors, he removed his trade, about the 
year 1845, from Worcester to Boston, where, till the close of 
his life, he was principal partner in the firm of Phillips, Samp- 
son &■ Co., whose extensive transactions in the book trade 
gained for them a world-wide reputation, the amount of their 
business, part of the time, being regarded as second only to one 
other establishment of the kind in America. Thus he raised 
himself l)y his OAvn exertions, in a little more than twenty-five 
years, from the humble position in which he first entered busi- 
ness, to the head of the first publishing house in Boston ; and 
he became the founder of the Atlantic Monthly, a magazine 
unexcelled in the branch of literature to which it is devoted. 
The accumulating cares of busines, greatly increased by the 
financial pressure of 1857 and 1858, and by the death of Mr. 
Sampson, his chief partner, produced too severe a strain upon 
his constitution, and he gradually sunk under the weight thus 
brought to bear upon him. He was a man of genial ways, of 
firm and honest principles and noble sentiments, which charac- 
teristics won for him a large number of friends. In the years 
1852 and 1853, he was a member of the Worcester Board of 
Aldermen. Perhaps his character and abilities may best be 
shown by the following resolutions and statements made on 



No. 44.] OF EEV. GEORGE PHILLIPS. 91 

the occasion of his death, by men who were familiar with his 
business life. At a meeting of the booksellers and publishers 
of Boston, held for the purpose of taking some action in regard 
to his death, the following resolutions were unanimously 
adopted : ' 

" Whereas, we have learned with regret, of the death of our frieud 
and co-laborer, Mr. Moses D. Phillips ; therefore 

'■'• Resolved, That we have always recognized in him the character of 
an honest, faithful mau ; that we cherish his memory with respect, 
and that in his death we have lost au intelligent and useful member 
of the trade. 

Resolved, That we close our places of business during the funeral 
services." 

■ One said of him: "He became favorably known for his intelli- 
gence, excellent judgment, and executive abilities. In comparatively 
a short time the firm gained a high reputation at home and abroad. 
The deceased was much respected by the whole community, and was 
highly esteemed by a large circle of friends." 

Another remarked : "He was a man remarkable for his modesty, 
industry, honesty and nobleness of heart ; was amiable, faithful and 
reliable. Those who knew him well, agree that he had a genial spirit, 
a fund of ready anecdote, and great kindness of heart." 

Another wrote : " After almost daily business transactions with Mr. 
Phillips and his firm, for about fifteen years, it is but truth and justice 
to say, that he always thoroughly understood w^hat he wanted, gave 
his orders concisely, managed everything methodically, was always 
ready to assist in removing difficulties and smoothing the path, and 
never placed obstacles in the way ; was always courteous and agree- 
able, even when most pressed by his multitudinous engagements. And 
during the whole period, no matter under howsoever trying circum- 
stances (and no doubt they were often presented), he never lost his 
good temper or spoke to us an unkind word. Amidst a multiplicity 
of calls in attending to so large a business, he was always attentive 
and social to the caller, and had a ready fund of anecdote, or story, 
or humor, to make pleasant the dreary jjath of daily toil and care. 
He was to be envied while living, and his memory will be fondly 
cherished, we doubt not, by huudi-eds, if not thousands, of persons 
who had no kinsman's claim, but who enjoyed the broad comprehen- 
sive and practical view he took of the subjects discussed with those 



92 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 44. 

whose daily walk brought them into his society. As a business man 
he was a model." 

He continued his residence in Worcester till 1856, when he 
change ^. it to Brookline, four miles from his place of business, 
where he died after a protracted illness, August 20, 1859. His 
remains were taken to Worcester and buried in Rural Cemetery. 
He married April 10, 1838, Charlotte Foxcroft, born in 
Worcester, 1812, daughter of John and Charlotte (Heywood)

forty years a judi- QM^O^H^^^^ ^ (1/ ^7^/t6^ 
cious and enterpris- 
ing farmer in Charlton ; prudent and exact in the management 
of his business affairs, scrupulously honest in his dealings, 
always cherishing a tender desire to promote the highest inter- 
ests of his family, a liberal supporter of the church and society, 
the ardent friend of education, temperance and every enterprise 
calculated to beneiit the community. 

It was the custom of the late Judge Charles Allen of Wor- 
cester, to depend upon him annually for a supply of butter, 
and he and his father, counting the few years in which his 
father preceded him, furnished that family with table butter 
for fifty-one years in unbroken succession. He came into pos- 
session of the farm previously owned by his father, and, by 
persistent industry, energy and economy, greatly aided and 
encouraged in his efforts by his frugal and devoted wife, added 
to the original farm of fifty acres upwards of fifty more, some 
of it containing valuable woodland. In 1878, having sold the 
homestead farm two years before, he removed to Auburn, 
where he has since resided. The portrait was taken at the age 
of sixty-nine. He married Jan. 1, 1843, Abigail Willis, 
born in Charlton, Sept. 6, 1820, daughter of Hiram and Dolly

GE:N^EALOaY OF THE FAMILY 

OF 

EBENEZER PHILLIPS, 

OF SOUTHBORO, MASS. 



No 46. 

(I.) Ebenezer Phillips, the ancestor of a great number 
who bear the famil}^ name, was a resident of Southboro, Mass. 
Respecting his history, it is much easier to tell what is not 
known concerning him, than to relate any of the events of his 
life. Diligent research and repeated inquiries have failed to 
reveal either his parentage, his birthplace, or the length of 
time he lived in Southboro. A copy from the town record 
gives no earlier date concerning this family than 1745. His 
will, in which he mentions his wife Mary, was dated Nov. 20, 
1745, and proved Aug. 21, 1746, showing his death to have 
occurred between those two dates.* A written obligation, 
dated Feb. 25, 1742-3, and beginning as follows, shows him to 
have been a resident of Stoneham : 

" Kuovv all men by these presents that I, Ebeuezer Phillips of 
Stoneham, in the County of Middlesex, in the province of Massachu- 
setts Bay, in New England, yeoman, am holden and stand firmly 
bound and obliged unto Ephraim Wood of Southboro, in the County 
of Worcester, in the province aforesaid, j'eoman, in the full and just 
sum of two hundred pounds, old tenor value." 



* Mr. Abuer S. Phillips of Boudville, Vt., in writing to the compiler, says : " My 
father had the records of the first of the Phillipses who came to this country, but 
they were destroyed by a little roguish girl about sixty years ago. The Phillipses left 
a large amount of property in England, choosing rather to leave their property than 
to be deprived of the privilege of enjoying their religion." Mr. A. S. Phillips also 
has in his possession other papers and relics, including a sword, once the property of 
his ancestors. 



98 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 47. 

Respecting his age at the time of his death, it may be inferred 
that he was past middle life, as two of his children were married 
before his death, and the others soon afterwards.* Children : 

1. Samuel : of Athol. (No. 47.) 

2. Ebenezer. (No. 55.)

5. Joanna; m. June 25, 1746, Jonathan Fay. 

No. 47. 

(11.) Samuel Phillips (son of Ebenezer, senior, of 
Southboro : No. 46,) born Jmie 22, 1726, birthplace not 
known ; married Martha Newton, and removed, probably 
as late as 1771 or later, to Athol, Mass., where he died 
Feb. 4. 1810. f He and four of his sons were soldiers in 
the Revolutionary War. His will was dated June 4, 1793, 
and presented to probate by Seth Phillips, executor, May 17, 
1810. Children, all born in Southboro : :j: 

1. Samuel, h. May 10, 1748 ; m. Joanna ; d. 1791. 

Child : 

1. Zedekiah, b. June 29, 1772. 



* Andrew Phillips, 1659, mentioned in " Wyman's Charlestown Genealogies," pp. 
740 to 747, bad a son Andrew, who m. Sarah Smith, Nov. 11, 1685, and had ch., 
Andrew, Ebenezer, .Joanna and Samuel. Of these, Ebenezer was b. 1695, and m. 
Mary Smith. This, taken in connection with the fact that Ebenezer Phillips of 
Southboro, 1745. had a wife. Mary, and ch. Samuel, Ebenezer and Joanna, and a gr.- 
son, Smith Phillips, and that at one time, 1743, he was of Stoneham, which was set 
off from Charlestown, points firmly towards the Charlestown, or Boston, families 
of this name for the origin of Ebenezer Phillips of Southboro. It would indicate 
that Ebenezer of Southboro, was the same as Ebenezer, son of Andrew, and 
guided by these statements only, we should reasonably arrive at this conclusion; but 
in this we are doomed to disappointment, unless there is an error in the record, or 
the printed copy, such as does not seem probable, for it is stated farther along that 
Samuel was administrator to his bro. Ebenezer, age 28, July 11, 1723. Whereas, 
Ebenezer of Southboro was living more than twenty years later. 

t One record says he died Feb. 3. Another says he was born July 3, 1732, but is 
evidently wrong. The same says his wife was born June 11, 1736, and died Feb. 3, 
1818. This date of her birth is wrong, and perhaps should be 1726 instead of 1736. 

X The twelve children are all reported from the town records of Southboro as 
" born to Samuel Phillips and Martha, his wife."

* A coincidence of names between some of the childi-eu of Ebenezer PhilUps, Jr., 
of Southboro, aud those of Ebenezer Phillips, b. Weston, 1722 (sou of Samuel, and 
gt.-grandsou of Rev. Geo. of Watei'towu) , has led some to conclude that the two 
wei'e identical, aud it is so given in a lately published historical worli ; but this is 
evidently erroneous. The dates are widely at variance, aud such a conclusiou is con- 
trary to the most authentic records aud best preserved traditions of this family. It 
is certain that his graudchildren styled him Ebenezer Phillips, Jr. (sou of Ebenezer 
of Southboro), and his son of the same name, Ebenezer Phillips, 3d. 

t The records of this family seem to have been much neglected, which made it 
difficult to give a complete and correct genealogy. It is believed, however, that the

(III.) Ebenezer Phillips (son of Ebenezer, Jr. of 
Southboro : Xo. 55,) born Feb. 23, 1752; described 1)}' his 
descendants as a man of great muscular development and mar- 
vellous strength, six feet two inches in height. It is related of 
him, that, on one occasion, Avhen drawing several barrels, filled 
with cider, from the mill, the cart accidentally tipped up and 
precipitated the barrels into the road. This was repeated after 
he had carefully lifted the barrels into the hind end of the cart, 
and then, in the heat of the excitement occasioned thereby, he 
grasped the barrels hy the chine, one at a time, and lifted them 
with agility and apparent ease over the side of the cart. Some 
of his descendants, for several generations, have inherited to a 
consideral)le extent, his muscular development and strength, if 
not his gigantic frame. He was a soldier in the war of the 
Revolution, participated in the battle of Bunker Hill, and was 
by the side of Gen. AVarren when that distinguished hero fell. 
Late in life he drew a pension.* Among his descendants there 
has generally been manifested considerable natural talent for 
vocal music. He lived in Sutton (now Millbury) and Grafton, 
and died in Grafton, June 5, 1834. He married Rachel Gale 
of Sutton (uow^ Millbury). Children: 

1. Silas, b. Oct. 27, 1775 ; of Rutland, N. Y. (No. 57.)

above, though lacking in dates and general information, is correctly given. The birth 
of Mary was a little in doubt, and possibly should have been placed after that of 
Susannah. One account says, Hannah, wife of Ebeuezer Phillips, was b. April 29, 
1722, 3d child of Israel Lyscom of Marlboro. 

* Charles L. Phillips of Washington C. H., Ohio, a gt.-grandsou, informs the com- 
piler that he has in his possession the sword which once belonged to the above 
Ebenezer.

ensuing two years were devoted to service on a farm, when, 
being fourteen years of age, he entered the employ of the 
American Telegraph Company, at Providence, E. I., as a mes- 
senger boy. Here his aptitude and devotion to duty were 
made apparent and he soon became a valuable operator. In 
1807, he being then barely twenty-one years of age, wc find 
him the acknowledged head of the telegraphic profession as a 
skilled and rapid manipulator. In that year he performed the 
greatest telegraphic achievement on record, viz: "receiving," 
that is, copying from sound, in a clear, legible hand, 2,731 
words in sixty minutes, a feat which has never been equalled. 
This performance called forth the hearty personal recognition of 
the inventor of the Morse telegraph. Prof. Samuel F. B. Morse, 
who presented ]\Ir. Phillips with a handsome testimonial ; and, 
on April 27th of that year (the seventy-eighth anniversary of 
the great inventor's birth), he penned a strong and flattering 
autograph letter to young Phillips, acknowledging the wonder- 
ful perfection he had reached. In 1870, Mr. Phillips became 
the managing editor of the Providence Daily Herald, and the 
marked ability with which he conducted that paper attracted 
the attention of many of the leading state oflicials, and earned 
for him the enduring friendship of numerous men of mark. In 
1872, ]Mr. Phillips founded the Attleboro Chronicle, and by his 
ability and untiring energy not only made it a flourishing con- 
cern in Attleboro, but placed it on the news-stands of the larger 
neighboring cities. The Chronicle passed from his hands in 
1875, when he entered the service of the Associated Press in 
its New York oflice. Although Mr. Phillips entered the latter 
service as a subordinate, he was, ten months thereafter, pro- 
moted to the important position of principal assistant to James 
W. Simonton, who is at the head of all the far-reaching 
machinery of this powerful organization. 

On the fourteenth of June, 1878, his thirty-second birthday, 
Mr. Phillips was placed at the head of the Washington bureau 
of the Associated Press, a position of much influence, honor 
and emolument. He is also Superintendent of the Associated 
Press telegraph line, and under his immediate direction or Avise

counsels, vast improvements have been introduced during the 
past four years. Among these improvements may be mentioned 
the "Phillips system of Steno-telegraphy," which doubles the 
capacity of wires without the aid of any expensive machinery. 
This system has been introduced on the Associated Press cir- 
cuits with pronounced success, and is probably destined to come 
into general use for the rapid transmission of business on public 
lines, at an early day.* 

Between 1(S72 and 1875 he wrote some remarkably clever 
sketches — studies of by-gone telegraphic heroes — which, in 
1876, were published in book form, together with a series of 
non-telegraphic stories. His entrance to "the sacred guild of 
authors" was greeted with many flattering notices from the 
press, and was succeeded Ijy large sales, several editions of the 
book being rapidly called for. 

In addition to his present duties, he is constantly writing 
verses, f sketches and editorial articles for literary, telegraphic 
or other scientific papers, and he is at present engaged on a 
novel illustrative of a Xew England bo^^'s life. Indeed, he has 
been a prolific writer for newspapers for the last ten years, under 
the pen names of "Gilbert 81owl)oy," "Maurice McLeod," 
and finally "John Oakum," which is now the widest and most 
favorably known. 

While to l^espeak for ]Mr. Phillips at present, a place beside 
the very foremost of our leading writers of the present day 
would be premature, it is no exaggeration to say that his lan- 
guage and his descriptions, whatever they bear upon, are as 
pure and as clear as those of authors whose style is accepted 
as a standard, even if they have not pretended to so wide a 
range, and that there is much promise in him for his maturer 
years. The world to him, notwithstanding his extreme earnest- 
ness and numerous well balanced and settled convictions, is a

school. He is always open to discuss freely the merits of 
"the points"' in his eltbrts, excellent as those points may be; 
promptly profits by successes and failures alike : is always 
thankful for suggestions and sensil^le criticism touching his 
literary work, weighs them all carefully, and acts readily upon 
them when good ones are made. This is a quality which, of 
itself alone, must tend greatly toward final success. Another 
of his qualities is untiring industry. While busily engaged, in 
one capacity, in supervising the collection and distribution of 
reliable and unbiased, but necessaril}' uninspiring commonplace 
news and statistics, we lind him on the other hand, in a difterent 
capacity, commenting on the same and drawing the appropriate 
lesson therefrom for the public, just as naturally aud easily as 
though the latter occupation were the only duty which circum- 
stances had imposed upon him. His published sketches show 
that they are the deductions of one possessing a habit of close 
observation, a keen sense of humor, and one who is at the same 
time a shrewd but mirth-loving man of the world. He "turns 
out " a pathetic incident, or invests solid sober counsel with all 
the charm of half-earnest but penetrating pleasantry with equal 
adroitness; and his writings, pathetic or "light," are ever 
replete with shrewd and wholesome suggestions. 

In his literary treatment of the telegraphic profession — a field 
where some of his earliest triumphs were won — there is not one 
competitor to approach him. — As a far-seeing critic he has 
proved himself fearless and just, yet so good-natured, that his 
victims can never muster up feelings of resentment, but rather 
profit by his lecturing. Nor is his strength as a writer confined 
to prose. His poetical eftbrts are well represented. The 
estimation in which Mr. Phillips is held by the telegraphic 
profession is best determined by the numerous spontaneous 
outbursts which greet him in the journals, published l\v that 
interesting and generally intelligent fraternity. Many poetical 
offerings have been made to him by his admirers, which, al- 
though they evince a lusty appreciation of Mr. Phillips, are 
hardly worth more than l)are mention. 

He refers to his native town in "Oakum Pickings," as 



120 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 67. 

follows: — "Awciy up among the hills and dales of Massachu- 
setts, where the Blackstone winds l^rightly in the sunlight a 
mere brook ; where the atmosphere is as clear and fragrant as 
nectar; where, of all the world, the trees and the earth are 
of the greenest possible tint ; where the robin sings in the 
sweetest strains at morning ; where the bluejay is the bluest ; 
where the whippoorwill chirps in tones of the most melancholy 
sweetness at night ; where the moon shines the softest ; where 
the stars twinkle the merriest ; and where everything around, 
in our opinion at least, is primitive, beautiful and smiling, we 
were born and passed together our dear, dreamy, delicious days 
of boyhood." — Pierce's History of Grafton.

Their cadence was mellow, but clear and high 
And I hear them again 'neath the starlit sky ! 
And a spell o'er my soul is cast. 

I stand again midst whispering trees. 

And their murmur a story tells 
Of wonderful valor, of love and fame, 
While I listen with longings too sweet to name 

To the song of those evening bells. 

There are thoughts I fancied were gone for aye. 

But they come trooping back to-night ; 
There are unspoken hopes and visions rare, 
A locket of gold and a ringlet of hair 
And a face of wondrous light. 

Loved forms return at this curfew hour. 
And dreams which ended in sadness ; 
Old memories, sweeter than breath of June, 
Scent of faded flowers and a long lost tune, 
Which chasten my hours of gladness.

JOHN PHILLIPS, 

OF DUXBURY. MASS.; 1638. 



There was one, John Phillips of Duxbury and Marshfield, 
at a very early day. The records of his family are meagre, 
scattering and unsatisfactory. It is evident that no record was 
kept by him, for we are informed by the Plymouth Colony 
Records that John Phillips of Marshtield, and Faith Doty of 
Plymouth, signed a marriage contract by making their marks, 
Feb. 23, 16G6 [1G67 x. s.]. He was doubtless the progenitor 
of a large family which appears to include those given under 
Nos. 70 to 89 of this work. After referring to various writers 
whose accounts are sometimes contiictino- the followinoj state- 
ments appear to he the most nearly correct : 

No. 68. 

John^ Phillips, born in England, 1G02, where he married. 
•He came to Duxbury as early as July, 1638, and bought a 
house and land there of Robert Mendall, Oct. 19, 1639, "pay- 
ments to be made yearly, every first day of Oct., at the house of 
Mr. Winthrop, in Boston." After 1643 he lived in Marshfield, 
where he was highway surveyor in 1655, and constable in 1657. 
July 31, 1658, his son John was killed by lightning.* He 
married for second wife, July 6, 1654, widow Grace Hollo- 
way, and she with their son Jeremiah were killed by lightning, 



* " Being at work in the meadow, making hay, a tempest suddenly arose and he 
immediately started for the nearest house. Having entered he sat down between the 
door and the chimney, when the lightning struck the chimney, and (lescendii%, 
passed out the dooi-. knocking him lifeless on the groi\mV'—3Iather MSS.

June 23, 1666.* He married (3d) Mar. 14, 1667, Faith 
Doty of Plymouth. She died prior to July 10, 1677. One 
account says he died in 1677, but this may be a mistake refer- 
ring to the time of her death, for another says he probably died 
Oct., 1691, almost ninety years old. Children : 

1. John ; killed by lightning as stated. 

2. Samuel ; m, and had a family. 

3. Jeremiah ; killed by lightning at ten years of age.

2. Joseph, b. 1685.

Compare these names with the marriages in Marshiield given

* The account is related in a letter from Rev. Samuel Arnold of Marshfield, to Rev. 
Mr. Mather of Boston, 1683, and given by Winsor as follows : There were, at the 
house of John Phillips, fourteen persons. " Instantly a terrible clap of thunder fell 
upon the house and rent the chimney, and split the door in many places, and struck 
most of the persons, if not all." Three were " mortally struck with God's arrows, 
that they never breathed more.'' They were the wife of Mr. Phillips, and his son, 
aged about ten years, and one, Wm. Shertley [Shurtletf] , " who had a little child in 
his arms, which was wonderfully preserved." This Shertley had just before been 
burnt out of his own house, and with his family, was at this time, "a present 
sojourner at said Phillips'." — Mather MSS. 

t Mitchell, in his History of Bridgewater, mentions Benjamin as son of John- who 
was killed by lightning, and grandson of Johni of Duxbury, 163s ; but Savage, vol. 3, 
p. 412, gives information indicating that Benjamin was son of John i of Duxbury by 
second marriage, which is much more probable.

No. 70. 
(I.) Thomas Phillips was of Duxbury, Mass., and died 
Pec. 17, 1759, aged 81. His mother's name was Mary. His 
wife, Rebecca, who is supposed to have been Rebecca Blaney* 
of Boston, died March 4, 1761, aged 80. Continued efforts 
have been made by some of his descendants to retrace the family 
to a more remote ancestry, but, so far, it is believed, without 
much success. It is thought that he was a descendant of John

GENEALOGY OF 

JOHN PHILLIPS 

OF EASTON, MASS. 

No. 79. 

(I.) Capt. John Phillips of Easton, Mass., the first 
person in that town Avho received a captain's commission, was 
the ancestor of a kirge number of the Phillips name. His birth- 
place and origin have not been clearly shown.* He died in 
Easton, Nov. 14, 1760. Children :

2. Experience ; m. Richard Ellis, an Irishman who was the first 

settler iu Ashfield, Mass.f 



* There are good reasons for believing that Capt. John Philh'ps may have been the 
oldest sou, b. 1682, of Benjamin- and Sarah (Thomas) Phillips, of Marshfield, and 
grandson of Johu.i of Duxbury, 1038, and, if so, the brother of Thomas who sett. 
iu E. Bridgewater about 1735. The coiueideuce of names and dates points directly to 
this source. In that case the number of his generation should be (III.) instead of 
(I.) and the number of each succeeding generation should be changed to coincide. 

t For the following statements the compiler is indebted to Mr. Geo. Bassett of Ash- 
field, a descendant of Capt. John Philliiis. 

The town of Ashtield, called Huntstowu prior to 1765, was granted to a company 
of soldiers for service in an expedition to Canada in 1090, commanded by Capt. 
Ephraim Hunt of Weymouth. There were three in that company by the name of 
Phillips. The first settler of Ashfield was Richard Ellis as stated above. The second 
was Thomas Phillips; the third was Ebenezer Smith, whose wife was Richard ElHs's 
daughter. Thomas Phillips lived in Deertield a wliile, '' whether any more than a 
short time being afraid of the Indians, I do not know." In the above company thei'e 
was John Phillips who drew lot No. 6 in the first division. John Phillips drew for 
Richard Phillips lot No. 13. Joshua Phillips, "who, I suppose, was my grand- 
mother's brother." drew for Joshua Phillips lot No. 56. The proprietors of Huntstown 
met and chose John Phillips moderator, Marcli, 1738, 1739 and 174:0; "John Phillips 
committee to lay out lots, committee to build a corn mill 1743. Thomas Phillips was 
chosen on a committee to see that no one should carry white pine timber out of town; 
Caleb Phillips and Thomas Phillips on a committee to settle the boundary between 
Huntstowu and Deerfield; Caleb Phillips to have the care of the corn mill; Thomas 
Phillips to lay out 100 acre lots ; Philip Phillips collector. 1769." There M'as a Benja- 
min Phillips who had seven sous born from 1750 to 1767: "I think," writes Mr. 
Bassett, " they were my grandmother Mercy Phillips's relatives."

occupied the place of mother to him during his early infancy 
was, with her husband, in return comfortably cared for by him 
in their old age. He was justice of the peace, a member of the 
Legislature one year, town tax collector, captain of a military 
company in Ashfield, and had one platoon of his eleven sons at 
the general muster, and these were ordered to parade before 
the whole regiment. The youngest, aged fourteen, was the 
drummer, and another was fifer. He died in Ashfield, Aug. 
10, 1800. He married Mercy Phillips* of Dighton, Mass. 
She had one brother, Richard Phillips, who formerly lived in 
Ashfield and had children, and three brothers in Dighton, 
Abiathar, Samuel and Joshua. She is said to have had two

* Wednesday, Aug. 8, 1877, was the day set apart by this family for a reunion at 
the residence of Charles Phillips, Esc]., who with his estimable wife and pleasant 
home made the occasion one long to be remembered by all. 

The members of the family comprise eight brothers and one sister, and were all 
present with their wives and families except G. H. Phillips. 

At a stated hour in the afternoon all assembled at the house of Esq. Phillips, and, 
grouped together in the beautiful maple arbor upon the lawn, were soon interchang- 
ing greetings with each other, and relating incidents regarding the history of the 
family from its earliest juvenile years down to the present. A special feature of the 
hour was an extensive collection of fine views of all the principal towns and cities 
and great men and buildings which had been carefully collected by Philip Phillips, 
the sweet singer, in his travels around the world upon his mission of Christian song, 
and with the classified arrangements which he was able to give them, made, as it 
were, panoramic pictures of the countries and places through which he had passed.

:md for an hour or two the company travelled in thought with him through the great 
cities and towns of the oriental lands and old country. 

Immediately following this pictured jonrney. the friends gathered into the house 
and were pleasantly seated in the parlor, where all joined in singing — •' And are we 
yet alive and see each other's face y" after which appropriate portions of the Scrip- 
tures were read in concert, and all again joined in singing — " Nearer my God to 
Thee." At the closing line of this beautiful hymn the host, Mr. Charles Phillips, 
arose and in a few very appropriate remarks, admirably suited to the occasion, spoke, 
with feelings at times too full for utterance, his gratitude to God for the opportunity 
of seeing and meeting his brothers and sisters upon this occasion, and expressed a 
desire that all would kneel and join with brother Philip in prayer, thanking God for 
his protecting care which had so tenderly followed them. Remarks were then made 
by Dr. T. D. Phillips, the oldest brother, with reference to the anticipated meeting 
they were then enjoying which he had been looking forward to during the past year; 
and, while much crowded the mind that he would like to speak of, he felt too much 
overcome with emotions of graiitude and love to speak them out. Williston Phillips, 
the next in years, followed with touching and feeling remarks appropriate to the hour, 
followed by Dr. A. P. Phillips, whose tender feelings were so touched by the hallowed 
influences of the hour, made touching mention of the present meeting and the bright 
hopes he had of a meeting above, where he felt was a member of his own family 
awaiting him, and the tender thread of life that was still holding together the living 
members of the same brought him into sweet sympathy with the associations of the 
hour and the thought of the Heaven beyond. Appropriate remarks were made by 
the uncle and aunt who had been so intimately known by the family from its earliest 
history, followed by the youngest brother, Z. Barney Phillips, who from his experi- 
ences during severe illness since the last meeting, spoke of the sweet faith which 
enabled him in the hours of near approach to the dark valley of death to penetrate its 
shadows and behold the beautiful sunlight beyond, with an eai'uest hope that all 
present might so live that when the tinal message should come all would have this 
sweet assurance and feel the presence of the dear Saviour in the last hour. Philip 
referred gratefully to the privileges he had and had improved of praying for each 
member of the family in every clime and country around the world, and felt the 
influences of his brothers' and sisters" prayers had helped him. 

This closing the devotional exercises of the hour, the company, numbering thirty- 
seven adults and children, were escorted according to age lo the pleasant office-rooms 
of Esq. Phillips adjoining the bouse, where were spread three tables with easy sittings 
for all, representing the three generations which were present. The rooms where 
these tables were so luxuriously spread were also most beautifully decorated with 
flowers and evergreens, and appropriate mottoes, the most beautiful and touching 
one being an excellent portrait of the father hanging entwined with evergreens and 
immortelles and just beneath these words, "We are all here.*' Being seated the 
blessing was sung, led by Philip Phillips, and was in the following beautiful words 
which all joined in singing: 

" Be preseul at our table, Lord, 
Be here and everywhere adored. 
These mercies bless, and grant that we 
May feast iu Paradise with Thee." 

The magnificent and ample repast was now partaken of; and as the curtains of 
night began to draw their shadows about the beautiful hillsides and silvery lake the 
family separated, going to their homes and diflerent fields of labor, but resolving to 
renew as often as possible these sweet reunions of earth.— Fredonia Censor.

civil engineer. The following brief outline of his eventful and 
remarkable career, with the letter of commendation from Gen. 
Sherman, the compiler is enabled to give through the kindness 
of N. P. Dodge, his brother. 

His advantages for early education were quite limited, having 
only the benefits of common schools during the winters. Be- 
tween the ages of ten and seventeen he worked summers at 
gardening and farming, and as a clerk in a general mercantile 
store. He occupied his leisure hours during these years in 
fitting himself for college, and in 1844 entered the Norwich 
Military University of Vermont. In 1851 he emigrated to the 
West and settled in Peru, III., as civil engineer. His settle- 
ment here was followed for two years by his participation iu 
the locating and construction of several of the most important 
railroad lines of that region. He afterwards moved to Iowa 
City. In 1853 he made a reconnoisance west of the Missouri 
river, with a view of determining the location of the great 
Pacific Railroad of the future. Nov. 11, 1854, he removed to 
Council Bluffs, Iowa, where he was subsequently engaged in 
banking, real estate and mercantile business, and also organized 
the "Council Bluffs Guards." 

At the breaking out of the war in 1861, after being sent by 
the government of Iowa to "Washington, to arrange for the 
arming and equipment of Iowa troops, he raised the 4th Iowa 
Infantry regiment, of which he was commissioned Colonel, and 
also the 2d Iowa (Dodge's) Battery. In July, 1861, he 
marched with his command into Missouri, and was successful 
iu operating against the Confederate forces which were then 



152 GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY [No. 96. 

occupying that State. He reported with his regiment and 
battery in August, 1861, to General Fremont at St. Louis, 
and was soon after assigned to the command of the fourth 
brigade, and led the advance in the capture of Springfield, Mo. 
He took a prominent part in the celebrated battle of Pea 
Ridge, had three horses killed under him, and was seriously 
wounded. He was made Brigadier General for his gallant 
conduct in this battle. After recovering from his wounds he 
was designated to command the district of Columbus, Ky., 
and while holding the command, defeated several forces of the 
enemy, capturing Gen. Faulkner, near Island No. 10, and 
taking many prisoners. Late in 1862, having previously been 
given the command of the 2d division of the Army of the Ten- 
nessee, he was assigned to the command of the district of 
Corinth, Miss. He opened the campaign of 1863 by defeating 
the confederate forces under Forrest, Roddy, Fergueson and 
others. July 5th, 1863, he was assigned to the command of 
the left wing of the 16th Army Corps, with headquarters at 
Corinth, Miss. His forces made a raid on Grenada, Miss., in 
connection with a movement from Vicksburg, which resulted 
in driving the enemy south of that place, and capturing fifty- 
five locomotives and a thousand cars. 

While at the head of the 16th Army Corps, he joined Gen. 
Sherman in his march to Chattanooga, and in the Spring of 
1864, was entrusted with the advance of the Army of the 
Tennessee. His corps took part in all the battles of Gen. 
Sherman's forces in the march from Chattanooga to Atlanta. 
In recognition of his services in this campaign, he was made 
Major General by the General Government. During the siege 
of Atlanta, his energetic and well timed action in moving his 
forces against the enemy under Hood, resulted in saving the 
stores and transportation of the Army of the Tennessee, and 
the army from a threatened condition. A few weeks after the 
battle of Atlanta, the army still besieging that city, Gen. 
Dodge received a gunshot wound in the forehead while standing 
in a rifle pit, on the skirmish line, superintending an advance. 
This was on the 19th of August, 1864. He soon after reported 
to Gen. Sherman for duty, but, owing to his physical condition, 
was ordered to the district of Vicksburg, and immediately 
transferred to the department of the Missouri by the President 
of the United States, relieving Gen. Rosecranz.

Missouri was overruu by Guerillas, and the national troops 
were in bad condition. He soon brought the army into good 
standing, effectually quelled the general Indian outbreak which 
just then threatened the whole frontier, and a vigorous fight 
was made against the Guerillas of Missouri, Arkansas and the 
Indian Territory. He received the surrender of 4000 of Kirby 
Smith's army in Missouri, and of the confederate general, 
Jeff. Thompson, with 8000 officers and men in Arkansas. At 
the close of the war. Gen. Dodge's command was made to 
include the whole Indian country of the West and North-west. 

At his urgent request he was relieved of his command in 
June, 186G, and, on retiring from the army, was appointed 
Chief Engineer of the Union Pacific Railroad. He was nomi- 
nated for Congress by the Republicans of the oth Iowa district 
in 1S66, and elected by a majority 2000 higher than had ever 
been given in that district. He declined a reuomination and 
returned to push forward the construction of the Union Pacific 
Railroad. To this great work he bent all his energies. As 
chief engineer of the road, he made the plans for the great 
iron bridge which spans the Missouri River between Council 
Bluff's and Omaha, having charge of its construction till the 
time of his leaving the road as chief engineer. He supervised 
the relations of the road with the government, saw that the law 
was adhered to and the work conscientiously done, having no 
interest in the Construction Company, its contracts or profits. 

In 1868 the Union Pacific Railroad was completed, and very 
soou afterwards Gen. Dodge became Chief Engineer of the 
Southern Pacific, now the Texas and Pacific Railroad, where he 
took control of the surveys and construction, and from July, 
1872, to December, 1873, he completed the surveys along the 
thirty-second parallel of latitude from Sherman, Texas to the 
Pacific Ocean at San Diego, a distance of 1900 miles, and also 
put under construction 500 miles of the road. Since 1873 he 
has been engaged in the management of the Union Pacific and 
other western railroads. 

General Dodge is a member of the Odd Fellows, and takes 
an interest in whatever develops his State, American society 
and the country at large. His characteristics are, — great 
energy, industry, and persistency in any work he undertakes. 
His honor and integrity are unimpeachable.

When coutemplatiug a visit to Europe with his family, iu the 
season of 1877, he received the following letter : 

"Headquarters Army of the United States, 

Washington, D. C, April 20, 1877. 

To U. S. Consuls, Abroad : 

I have just learned that General G. M. Dodge is about going to 
Europe, where he may leave his children to school whilst he returns 
to America, where he is actively employed iu railroad construction 
and management. 

I take great pleasure in commending Genl. Dodge and family to 
the courtesy and politeness of all Americans, especially such as 
occupy official positions, because Genl. Dodge is one of the Generals 
who actually fought throughout the Civil War, with great honor and 
great skill, commanding a regiment, brigade, division, and finally a 
corps cVarmee, the highest rank command to which any officer can 
attain. 

He was with me in the West, especially in the Atlanta campaign 
where he was severely wounded, close to Atlanta, and I therefore 
think that he and especially his children, should experience the atten- 
tion of all officers of a Government that might have perished had it 
not been for the blood of just such men as General Dodge. 

With great respect, &c., 

W. T. SHERMAN,

society, she actively sought to do good and to promote the

Swampscott, Mass., then called "Linn." 

In 1694, John Phillips died, and Walter, Senr., was ap-

Genealogical Diclionary, Vol. 3, p. 413, gives the nine children of Col. Johu Phillips, 
but does not mention the second John, whose birth appears to have been in the first 
part of the year 1675, so he may have been a twin with Mary unless there is an error 
in the date of her birth.
