. (Brack) (#33) and Nancy Phillips (Patsy) (d/o William Tobias Phillips (#4212)).
. Apparently Nancy was the Nancy Cox (Nantie) who had children by Tobias L. Phillips (#421412). Ref 1 below claimed
. that the mother of Tobias' children was Nancy Phillips (Nantie), b ca 1860, and the dau of James Phillips and Nancy Cox
. (Nannie), but the 1870 census below shows that it was James Phillips' widow instead.
. Either there were two James Phillips closely associated with the Richard Phillips family, or one James who had two differ-
. ent families.

4214123 4. Lawyer Jackson Phillips (Little Jack), b Jun 1863 Va, m Martha Jane Mitchell.
. The following were claimed by Ref 1 below to be children of James Phillips, above, but the author apparently confused the
. Nancy Phillips'. Nancy "b ca 1860" was apparently the wife of James Phillips and not his dau. The Nancy Phillips Nes-
. ter (Nannie (#421212a), mother of James Garland Phillips (Garland), was not the wife of James Phillips, but the wife of
. Jacob Nester (#G4). That Nancy reverted to using the Phillips name after being abandoned by Jacob.
. Following are NOT issue of James Phillips above;
. 1. Nancy Phillips (Nantie), b ca 1860. Supposdly had 2 children by Tobias L. Phillips (#421216), but that Nancy
. Phillips was apparently the wife of James Phillips and not his dau as claimed by Ref 1 below.
. 1870 and 1880 census', Nancy , b ca 1860, not located, but living next door to Tobias was Nancy Phillips,38 Va, with
. children Jackson,16 Va, and Aldora,3 Va, the latter being Tobias' dau.
421212a1 2. James Garland Phillips (Garland), b ca 1865-68 Floyd Co, d by 1900, m(1) 26 Nov 1886 Surry Co, NC to Pensanner
. Layman (Nannie), b 10 Dec 1867 Patrick Co, Va, d 15 Nov 1890, d/o William C. and Nancy E. Layman. James m(2) 26
. Jan 1894 Floyd Co to his 1st cousin Lillian Marshie Phillips (Marshie), b 18 Jan 1878 Floyd Co, d 31 Jul 1907, d/o
. Preston K. Phillips (#421215) and Martha Permelia Cox (Permelia) (Cock).
. This James is apparently the s/o Nancy Phillips (Nannie) (#421212a), d/o Ambrose C. Phillips. Nancy m Jacob Nes-
. ter (#G4) and had son James,4 Va, in the 1870 census. After Jacob left her, Nancy and her younger children went by the
. Phillips name. Ref 2 below has "Garland Nester" listed as one of Jacob's wife Nancy's sons, and this is probably part of
. the confusion, since there was no real Garland Nester.
. Another James of the approx same age:
42121231 James Ellis Phillips (Jim), b Nov 1868 Carroll Co, m Phoeba Jane Phillips.
. He was the s/o Thomas Jefferson Phillips and Sarah Jane Cooper.
