. Luke m(2) 9 Feb 1853 to Nancy Cox Slusher, d/o Carter Cox and Ann Reed (Nancy), and wid of David Slusher.
. 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.
. 1820 Montgomery Co, Va census, p 87, John Phillips, 3?0010-20100.
. The following isn't consistent with this John, unless he was actually born in the 1790's, also children's ages inconsistent:
. ? 1830 Grayson Co, Va census, p 273, John Philips, 010001-10001.
. Poss the following, since his brothers Joseph and Thomas moved to that area in Tenn (but there were a number of other John
. Phillips' in E Tenn then), but the dau's aren't listed, and this John was b in the 1790's:
