I just may be a decendant of the Philpots you're looking for. Richard Andrew Philpot(born abt 1775) had a son, Martin born abt 1812 (brother of Reuben and James). Martin is my gggg Grandfather. Martin's son, Alexander (born 1857) married a Cherokee indian, as did Alexander's son, Walter. I'd be willing to share any info I have. I'd love to have anything you have on the Philpots.
