Philander Philips 34, bc 1816, NY Louisa Philips 26, bc 1824 NY Delevan F. Philips 6, bc 1844 NY Betsey Philips 30, bc 1820 NY
I suspect Betsey might have been his sister.His son has an unusual first name.Here they are on the 1860 census in Villenova, Chautauqua Co NY:
Philander Phillips 45 bc 1815 NY Lisa Phillips 38 bc 1822 NY Dlivan Phillips 16 bc 1844 NY
On this census, he is living two households away from a household headed by Daniel Libby.Daniel has a 43 year old wife named Betsy and a 65 year old woman in his household named Lucy Phillips born in Rhode Island.I wonder if this is Betsy and Philander's mother?
However, I found a tree on ancestry.com that says his parents were Gardner Phillips and Betty Ann Jenks.This file also says Philander had a brother named Jerusha born in 1824.
