We have a descendant of Arrington's brother Elijah in the Phillips DNA Project and his Y-DNA matches that of our Phillips Family DNA Group 8.Here is his Phillips lineage:
Kit number 126900
1.Probably William Phillips bc 1660 possibly in VA, m Susannah Williams 2.Probably William Phillips bc 1700 probably in Richmond Co VA, m Ann unknown (possibly Yates) 3.Joel Phillips bc 1735 probably in Orange Co, VA, m Elizabeth Harrington (?) 4.Whitmell Phillips bc 1775 Wilkes Co GA, m Nancy Hurley 5.Thomas Henry Phillips b 11 March 1801 Morgan Co GA, m Lavinia Atkinson 6.Elijah Madison Phillips b 13 May 1839 GA, m Josephine Bomar 7.Joseph Benjamin Phillips b April 1871 Douglas Co GA, m Martha Lois
Henry Phillips and his wife Lavinia and children appear on the 1850 census in Walton County GA and the 1860 census in Campbell Co GA.I have a lot of information on Group 8 which I would be happy to share with anyone who is interested.
