It's way back but I have a Phillips in my family. There was a David Alderman (or Alterman) Kirkland, b: 4 Oct 1833 in Fla. who married Mozan Phillips on 4 Dec 1855. She was born about 1843 in Georgia. Children were John Joseph Kirkland II, Georgia Amanda, David Ellis, Moses Heywood, Edgar Giles, Mary, and Dora. Don't know if it helps but let me know if you see any of those names back in the late 1800's.
