Gravestone of Joseph Phillips and Birdie Mae Stone Phillips in the Irish Memorial Cemetery - Tazewell, TN (my grandmother and grandfather)

This picture is of several of the Riley Phillips family made in probably the late 1930's or early 1940's. I think it is Maude Phillips Goad and Lydia Phillips Chapman (wife of Lucius Marcellus Chapman and I know that is my grandfather in the middle. On his immediate left is Martha Phillips Shoopman but the taller lady I am unsure of. Click on the picture for a larger view.

From left to right - Frankie Phillips, Dorthy, Joe, Bill and his grandson". William Q. Phillips died August 26, 1944.
Rugby, Tennessee. The Thomas Hughes Public Library, with thousands of volumes donated by admirers and publishers, was the pride of the colony. Christ Church Episcopal painted it's original colors and contains all its early furnishings, light fixtures and rosewood organ.
William Q. Phillips
William Q. Phillips visiting my grandfather at a motel in Scott County. I had mistaken it earlier for Tobe's Motel but Tobe Phillips' Motel was never two story. I have pictures of Tobes' Motel HERE. Tobe Phillips was a distant cousin. From the looks of the picture was in the early 1940's. William Q. died in 1944 so this picture and others made of my grandfather staying at the motel was several years before his retirement in 1949.

Sayra Phillips Hill from Washington State has sent a picture of Jim Churndasher Phillips and family. To see the entire family please click on the picture of Jim above.

Joe Phillips
This picture is one of two that I have of the Phillips brothers. I am pretty sure this is of Fred Phillips or of my grandfather Joseph Phillips. I heard a story that his brother Fred, born Aug. 15, 1882, wanted to join in 1897, but was too young during the Spanish American War and that my grandfather re-enlisted and was ready to go in to the service with him. But because of malaria, that he contacted during his previous service, was unable to serve. I am almost positive since finding information that this is Dr. Fred Phillips. I am adding information HERE. No other pictures of Fred or John are available at this time.

John Crittenden8 PHILLIPS, (Riley7 PHILLIPS, Jehu6, Joseph5, Tobias4, George3, Tobias2, John1) was born Mar 16, 1892 in Scott Co., Tennessee, USA, and on Apr 16, 1910 in Scott Co., Tennessee, married Una V. DAWSON who was born Mar 21, 1894 in Scott Co., Tennessee. John Crittenden died on Feb 24, 1970 in Scott Co., Tennessee. Una V. died on Nov 22, 1970.


I found among old papers of my grandfather Joseph Tucker Phillips a rental agreement of the property he had purchased around 1949 known as the Senator John Toomey Farm. He had rented the farm and house to John Crittenden (J.C.) Phillips and that agreement included the option to purchase. That agreement can be found HERE.
