My friend Gloria is researching her family history with my help.Evan Phillips and Martha Ishmael were her great-great-grandparents. She is the great-grandaughter of Evan and Martha's daughter Jane Phillips (1858) and Thomas Benjamin.
Let me know if you want to get in touch with her, and I will do the same with her.
Incidentally, I have the birth year for both Elinor and Mary as 1838, but Evan and Martha did not marry until 10 December 1841. Gloria just got their marriage certificate.
