Gaines/Phillips Families

Updated August 10, 2001

About Our Family Research

The Gaines/Phillips families seem to be spread over the US. I am currently looking for all the connections. The next reunion will be held in Chicago, IL., in July 2002.

I'm searching for further informmation on Elisha and Sara Gaines and their children, and on Andrew Jackson Phillips. Elisha and Sara were my great-grandparents, and Andrew and Ida Mae were my grandparents.

Elisha and Sara reared their children in southeastern Mississippi, in Clarke County. The area contained the towns of Laurel, Stonewall, Enterprise and Hattiesburg. We believe the Gaines family lived in either Laurel or Hattiesburg. Their children were Annie, Virginia, Willie, Ida Mae, Idelle, Elisha, Edward, Luella, Sudie, Lena Bell, and Edmonia.

Andrew was born in Alabama, but moved to West Va. around 1912, afte he married Ida Mae Phillips. Their children were Lurean, Ethel, Elnora, Andrew, Addie (Sam), Clarence, Eddie, and Annie Pearl. We know his parents were Allen and Annie Phillips, and his brothers were Charlie and John Phillips, and Robert and George McAvoy. This is the only information on my grandfather, as he died in 1933. I wish to find as much information as I can, so that I can complete our genealogy.
