421212 Ambrose C. Phillips,7 42121 (Tobias,6,William,5,Tobias,4,George,3,Tobias,2,John,1)
. b ca 1817-21 Montgomery Co, Va; d 1885. He is called Ambrose Cicero Phillips on many websites, but many of those
. same sites give his death date as 1865, but he actually died after 1880, as proven by the census records.
. Ref below gives his nickname as Peter, but that may be a confusion with his son Ambrose.
. m Lucinda (Lucy) (Jennings by tradition), b ca 1817-18 Va, d 12 Dec 1890 Carroll Co, Va, "age 73, parents unknown".
. No proof, but Lucinda was prob a d/o either Jonathan, James, or William Jennings, sons of William Jennings (#2) and
. Elizabeth Ogle, all of whom had unidentified daus born prior to 1820. James Jennings (#24) moved to St Clair Co, Ill
. in the 1830's, and supposedly d in Kanawah, Hancock Co, Iowa in the 1850's. Jonathan Jennings (#23) also moved to
. St Clair Co, Ill in the 1830's, and William Jennings (#26) moved to Barry Co, Mo in the 1830's. This relationship may
. only be proven if there is an estate settlement or will for these men found.
. Ambrose was raised in Montgomery/Floyd Co, but may have lived in Nicholas Co, Va (WVa) before coming to Greasy
. Creek, Carroll Co (acc to John Perry Alderman). He hasn't been located in the 1840 census (unless he was the one listed in
. Caswell Co, NC, p 93, Ambrose Phillips, 000001-22001. This Ambrose not located in NC in 1830 or 1850.)
