4.Joseph H Phillips bc 1850 TN, m Martha Leeann Matheny in Overton Co TN
5.David Benson Phillips b 1 May 1886 TN, m Jennie Clemmons Stinson in Allen Co KY
Others in Grp. 9 have the ancestry traced back to Ireland
It appears more than one child was given the middle name ofBenson.
It appears that Richard only had one male chile-- Carl E., b. Pct, 1879.He married Bertha Dye in Wabah Co and was living with his in-laws in 1900
Household Gender Age Birthplace head Harmon B Dye M 44 Indiana wife Rachel A Dye F 47 Ohio boarder Kallie L Wright F 10 Illinois daughter Bertha Philips F 23 Indiana son-in-law Carl E Philips M 21 Indiana
Don't know what happened to Carl between 1900 and 1910 as Bertha is shown living with her parents in 1910 with daughter Leah but no Carl even tho she is listed as "married"not widdowed.
By 1920 Bertha is is Miami, OH living with a Willaim Lomerson,Again she is listed as married but no Carl.Leah is shown as Leo but note that ity says female so no doubt the sdame as in Wabash, IN.
age: 42 birthplace: Indiana marital status: Married father's birthplace: Indiana mother's birthplace: Indiana film number: 1821418 digital folder number: 4384786 image number: 01016 sheet number: 11 Household Gender Age Birthplace self William Lomerson M 62y Ohio Bertha Philips F 42y Indiana dau Leo Philips F 16y Indiana
Hope this is some help.
