.                 b ca 1787 Va.  This Joseph Phillips may be the actual s/o Tobias, instead of the
Joseph Phillips (#42111) who moved to
.                    Campbell and Scott Cos, Tenn, but no proof.  But this Joseph at least has a birth year similar to that quoted for the s/o
.                    Tobias, which was 16 Oct 1787, while the Joseph Phillips of Scott Co, Tenn had an estimated birth year of ca 1793-96 acc
.                    to the census'.

.                          However an older David Phillips, b 1770s, was listed next to him.  If Joseph and David are related, they were likely
.                          brothers, as their ages too close to be father and son.

.                  Ref:  1.   Ken Haas' notes contain a letter from a descendant of John Phillips, b ca 1803 Tenn.  Acc to Jahue Phillips in 1904,
.                                 at age 86: "... Tommie Phillips, his brother Joseph and his son Johnathan Phillips... came to Tenn ca 1803, from
.                               "Scott County, Virginia.....   Joseph and Jonathan were mere boys...."   this letter also states that Jahue was the 3rd
.                                 child of Joseph Phillips who was born in Scott Cty, Va in 1788."  Also Jahue went back to Virginia to see his
.                                 Grandmother Tobias Phillips with his Uncle John.  She had about 50 slaves.
.                                 (the above doesn't indicate who John, b ca 1803, was.  Also "his Uncle John" would literally have to be
John C.
.                                 Phillips (#4213), who was supposedly b in 1775, and wasn't known to have moved to Tenn, although he isn't
.                                 located in 1830.)
