.                               (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.

.                             issue: one infant, dec.

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.

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:
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.
