4211 Thomas Phillips,5 421 (Tobias,4,George,3,Tobias,2,John,1)
. b 1768; d 1841 Anderson Co, Tenn. (he was b after 1775 acc to 1820 census, in the 1770's acc to 1830 census, and in the 1760's
. acc to 1840 census)
. ? m(1) Sarah Betts.
. m(2) 9 Jan 1798 Montgomery Co, Va to his father's 2nd cousin Mary Goad (Polly), b 1770's, d/o Abraham and Anne Goad
. No evidence given to show that the Thomas Phillips who marr Sarah Betts is the same one who marr Mary Goad. The first 4
. children may not be the children of Thomas Phillips of Campbell Co, Tenn. Perhaps the other Thomas Phillips of Rutherford
. Co, Tenn (see below) was the one who m Sarah Betts and had the 1st 4 children listed below.
. Thomas and Mary moved to Anderson Co, Tenn with Abraham Goad ca 1802.
. 1810 census, unavailable for Anderson and Campbell Co.
. 1816, 15 Oct: Anderson Co: Thomas Phillips of Anderson Co appointed guardian of William Goad, minor.
. (This was William Goad (#2321), s/o Isham Goad , s/o Abraham.)
. 1818 Campbell Co, Tenn tax list, Thomas Phillips.
. 1820 census, unavailable for Anderson and Campbell Co.
. 1823 Campbell Co tax list, Thomas Phillips.

. 1840 Campbell Co census, p 306, Thomas Phillips, 0000000001-000000001.
. (listed adjacent to Joshua Goad (#234), s/o Abraham)
. Some refs claim that the Thomas Phillips of Rutherford Co is the above Thomas, but no proof given. The census records for
. Campbell and Anderson Co's are not available online, so this can't be proven by the census records alone.
. 1810 Rutherford Co, Tenn census, p 3, Thomas Phillips, 10010-00100.

. issue: (1st 4 ch supposedly of Sarah, but this may be another family)
. ? 1. Richard Phillips, b ca 1788 Pittsylvania Co.
. The following is apparently Richard Newton Phillips, b 1794 Granville Co, NC, s/o Bennett Phillips:
. 1820 Rutherford Co, Tenn census, p 76, Richard Philips, 300010-00010.
. (listed near older Bennet and David Philips)
. 1830 Rutherford Co census, p 312, Richard Philips, 102101-110001.
. ? 2. Henry Phillips, b ca 1790 Pittsylvania Co.
. ? 3. Nancy Phillips, b ca 1792 Pittsylvania Co.
. ? 4. Murray Phillips, b ca 1798 Pittsylvania Co.
42111 ? 5. Joseph Phillips, b ca 1793-96 Va, m(1) Millie Lawson, m(2) Elizabeth Hicks.
. All other sources claim this Joseph to be the s/o Tobias Phillips, that is, Thomas' brother, but Tobias' son Joseph was
. b 16 Oct 1787, and was possibly the Joseph Phillips (#4216) of Marengo Co, Ala. Some sources state that this latter
. Joseph was Tobias' son.
42112 6. Jonathan Phillips, b 10 Oct 1800 "Scott Co", Tenn (or NC), m(1) Phoebe Goad, m(2) Lucrecia Terrell (Crecia).
42113 ? 7. John S. Phillips (Jack), b ca 1802-03 Tenn, m Kissiah Thomas.
. No proof he is a son of Thomas, but he was living close to Thomas Phillips' sons in 1850, plus the letter mentioned below
. by a descendant of John Phillips, b ca 1803, describes Tommie Phillips and kin coming to Tenn ca 1803.
. Claimed by one source to be the son of William Tobias Phillips (#4212), but most websites list his parentage as unknown.
. This apparently confuses him with William's brother John C. Phillips (#4211), b ca 1775.
42114 ? 8. Abraham Phillips, b ca 1807 Tenn, m Agness ____.
. No proof he is a son of Thomas, but was listed next to him in 1840. Acc to one Ref, he was a s/o Charles Phillips, b ca 1770
. Haywood Co, NC, and Melvina ____. No sources say he was s/o Thomas.
42115 ? 9. Jesse Phillips, b ca 1808-11 Tenn (or NC), m Nancy ____.
. Prob s/o Thomas Phillips.
. Living in Fentress Co, Tenn in 1840 and 1850.
42116 10. Emanuel Phillips, b 24 Nov 1813 Tenn, m(1) Leanner/Leander Sexton, m(2)____ Stephens.
42117 11. Elijah Phillips, b ca 1816-19 Tenn, m(1) Margaret Sexton, m(2) Tennessee Newport.
. Ref: 1. Ken Haas' notes contain a letter from a descendant of John Phillips, b ca 1803 Tenn. Acc to Jahue Phillips in 1904,
. at age 86: ".... Tommie Phillips, his brother Joseph and his son Johnathan Phillips .... came to Tenn ca 1803, from
. "Scott County, Virginia ... Joseph and Jonathan were mere boys..." This letter also states that Jahue was the 3rd child
. of Joseph Phillips who was born in "Scott Cty, Va in 1788." Also Jahue went back to Virginia to see his Grandmother
. Tobias Phillips, with his Uncle John. She had about 50 slaves.
. 2. Mrs E. A. Vowell gives Thomas' wife as Sarah Betts, who d 1841. I don't know if this is his 2nd wife, or another fam-
. ily. Supposedly Thomas' and Sarah's children were Richard, Henry, Mary, and Nancy, acc to notes of D.B. Peterson.
. 3. Ephraim Phillips of Yancy Co, NC (1850 census), was a "known" descendant of Tobias and Peggy Phillips. He was
. b 1826 and m Sarah Elizabeth ____. His dau Mary Louise Phillips, b 20 Apr 1848, d 8 Apr 1926, m 5 Nov 1865
. Yancy Co to Reuben Thomas Hughett (#214), and they lived in Greene and Claiborne Co's, Tenn. No evidence
. given that Ephraim was descended from Tobias and he was a s/o George E. Phillips, s/o Willis, s/o Nehemiah, acc to
. other sources. Ephraim was age 46 in the 1860 Yancy Co, NC census.
