  • Notes 
    • It is possible Samuel was married twice, that Mary McClure was his second wife.

      Birth dates of children suspect. In 1838 Samuel M Phillips Jr had a wife, Susan. From the dates we currently have, Saml jr was only 11.

      Buyers at his son's estate sale included: Amos S Phillips, Amos G Phillips, Thomas B Phillips, Moses Phillips, Soosan Phillips, and Elizabeth Phillips; dated 04 Jun 1838. This Moses can't be Saml and Elizabeth's son - he was only 7 years old. Perhaps Amos and Moses are Samuel's brothers?

      Have seen the following listed as a lost cem of Alexander Co.
      - Douglas Cem About a mile SW of Delta--one person buried there--Samuel Phillips.
      - McClure Cem Abt mile SW of Delta
      - McRaven Cem Near Delta about 4 mi south of McClure; also known as the McClure Cemetery

      May have had a brother - James. James had a son Amos Garl Phillips b. 1848 who married Rosena Porterfield.
