Wow, Thank you so very much.I was told about the spelling change, I even have Albert Charles Phillips Jr.'s death certificate and his name is spelled Phillips and his mother's name is spelled, Margaret E. O'brian. Margaret's mothers name according to Florence Phillips is, Margaret Mahallen.The spelling is just a guess.Nellie could be a nic name. Margaret O'brien also has a brother named Thomas.A sister K/Catherine (Minnie) that married Albert Sr's brother John Phillips. Florence also mentions an Aunt Meryl/Merrill Florence O'brien(Stoneman?) I was also told about the step father Stoneman, so that makes since.
I am going to process all this and see where it leads. I can not tell you how many hours I have looked for what you found.Thank-you again.Nancy
