.                If the birth date estimate of 1800-10 for Sarah is correct, she may have been too young to be the mother of the older children,
.                and hence John may have been previously married, especially considering he was 25 years older than her.

.                John may have gone to Campbell Co, Tenn with his brothers Thomas and Joseph, and if so, some of the Phillips males listed as
.                possible sons of
Thomas Phillips (#4211), may be sons of John.
